And I quote

Khalid: Momma, when I die…?

Me: (putting my drink down slowly) Yes Khalid?

Khalid: And my body goes into the earth…?

Me: Yes?

Khalid: Will people remove my fossils and put them in a museum?

Me: No dear, they won’t.

Khalid: Why not?

Me: Because you’re not a dinosaur dear.

Iman: (is looking through rows of flavored vitamins as we’re waiting in line at a pharmacy) Momma, why does this have a picture of icecream?

Me: Hmm? Because those vitamins supposedly taste like icecream.

Iman: Why?

Me: So that kids will like taking them.

Iman: This one has cherries.

Me: It’s probably cherry flavored.

Iman: This one has fairies on it. Is it fairy-flavored?

Me: I don’t think so, I’m not sure what fairies would taste like.

Iman: I know. Meat.

Me: Meat?

Iman: Yeah, because that’s what bodies are made out of. Meat.

Me: You’re a very sensible girl.

Iman: I know.
