Me: Cecilia, did you know that you're beautiful?
Cecilia: Um, yeah!
Aunt Sister: And why are you beautiful?
Cecilia: Because of my sparkle shoes!!!
Cecilia: And God made me!!!
Cecilia, pooping: Wook, it fell near da tissue!
Cecilia: Maybe da tissue is its bwanket!
Me: Probably not...
Cecilia: Or maybe its swimsuit?
Cecilia, sitting on the potty and leaning forward to touch my earrings: Hey, some of my fingers aren't even wet anymore!
Me: When did they get wet?
Cecilia: Um, a couple of years ago.
Me: How did they get wet a couple of years ago?
Cecilia: ...No, dey were JUST wet!
Me: And how did they just get wet?
Cecilia: Um, because I dipped dem in da potty.
So glad you were just touching my face, then...
Cecilia, trying on a pair of the twins' overalls: Dey fit me! I can wear dem!
Me: No, they're not your size so that won't work.
Cecilia: What size are dey?
Me: 18 months.
Cecilia: So when I'm 18, I can wear dem!
Me: ...Sure... Fine...
Cecilia: And I'll wear a SHIRT wif dem!
Always a good idea to wear a shirt under your overalls as an 18-year-old girl... Goodness I hope that's something we never have to argue about!!!

And therefore he's obviously not defective! Parenting ftw!
