Dulce de Leche, Julie Andrews, Thigh Gaps, Cabbage Patch Kids, Braids, and the Prius

 "I need to figure out how to make Dulce de Leche for my report on Argentina. Food will help me get a good grade." Ben

"Julie Andrews is my favorite. She is just so good. Who else can be be the perfect Mary Poppins and the perfect Maria?" Zibby

"My friends said that I should watch what I eat because "thigh gaps" are considered beautiful. I really don't think that God made me in such a way that I will ever have "thigh gaps" nor do I care. Eating is more important." AbbySue

"Mom, tell us that story know the one about how grandma surprised you with your first cabbage patch kid." All three Kookies

"You are beautiful...I like your braid today." Daddy to Mommy

Just a few snippets of conversations between a family of five all squeezed together in the tiny, we did not choose a car this small on behalf of the environment nor did we choose a car this tiny because we all get along and have no issues with "personal space"...the Prius is the company car which means filling the gas tank is on them, so we don't complain.

The "close quarter conversations" on the other hand are priceless.

"The human race has one really effective weapon and that is laughter." Mark Twain
