Kenny: Mommy, I’m sitting on your right side and Jasmine is sitting on your left side, right?
Jasmine: Nooooo, you are sitting on Mommy’s right side and I’m sitting on Mommy’s wrong side.
The Nurse: Please step on the scale. Wow, what a big girl you are!
Jasmine (rolls her eyes): No, I’m not a big girl. I can’t even snap my fingers.*****
Kenny: Mommy, I don’t like Dì Út. Dì Út có nhiều râu quá làm con nhột!
Mommy: Huh? Dì Út? Dì Út làm gì có râu?
Kenny: Uhhh, ông Út chớ.
Daddy: Con gái ba tên gì nè?
Jasmine: Lủng chảy…tè le.
Kenny: Mommy, palm trees don’t grow near the house. They grow near the beach.
Mommy: Sao con biết?
Kenny: Last year, when I was four, I didn’t know. Now, I’m five, I just know.
Jasmine: Daddy, I like Raymond. He’s my boyfriend.
Daddy: Really? That’s nice. (he must assume Raymond is a boy and her friend. Imagine 10 or 15 years later, I’ll be surprised if he has the same reaction)
