Temperature

Emma:  What is cold?
Carina:  Cold is when the temperature goes down.
Emma:  What is temperature?
Carina:  I knew you were going to ask that.  Well, temperature is how we measure whether it is cold or hot.
Emma:  But what is cold?
Carina:  Well, if you want to get technical, cold is when your molecules slow down.
Emma:  Oh.

Emma:  Diego's head is sorcolor (circular).
Carina:  *laugh*  Yes Emma.  Your cracker is circular like Diego's head.

Feet

Playing Nothing!

Mike: How do you play the nothing game?
Emma: We sit down and you can't move your feet, head, ears or legs.
Mike: Oh, of course, how did I not know that?
Emma: I don't know, Daddy.

Emma Rocks!

Emma:  Mommy, what you think Daddy?
Carina:  What do I think about Daddy?
Emma:  Yes, what you think about Daddy?
Carina:  Uh...
Emma:  Daddy's BIG and STRONG!  And Mommy is getting smaller and smaller.
Carina:  (I've been losing weight recently, so I of course took this as a compliment).  Emma, you rock!
Emma:  No, I'm not.  I'm Emma.
Carina:  I mean, "Thank you."
Emma:  Oh, you're welcome Mommy.
