While cooking some quinoa for lunch today Sunshine regaled me with this gem:

Birthdays Birth Days

Sunshine: "Why do they call it a birthday?"
Me: "Well because that is the day you were born."
Sunshine: "I was born on my birthday?!! Whoa-ho-ho-ho! That is so weird! And totally cool."

(Disclaimer - I don't have as many stories about Buddy and Happy because they are older and in school all day so I have half of a day with just me and Sunshine.)

Overheard from the backseat of the car...

Sunshine: That't not the color of my beaver!


(FYI, just so social services isn't called - she was playing a coloring game on her DS and her sister had been messing with it. Scouts honor.)
