Imogen, while watching Gilligan's Island, told me "When I grow up, I'm going to be rich. I'm going to make five dollars a day! Or sixty-two dollars a day!! Or (eyes widening) a hundred fifty ninety-two dollars a day!!!"

something to make you smile: bibliophiles all over the country are setting up
Little Libraries, teeny tiny buildings on their lawns, full of books to check
out. They're on the honor system, and you can leave books too." -Jezebel.com|

Yesterday on our way to a dinner, I was complaining about 'always' being late, and Imogen said "I probably won't be late when I grow up. You're always late, so I won't be late because kids don't do what their parents do." I said "That's true! How did you know that?!" She said "My brain just knew that. Why is my brain smarter than my skin? Mama, do you know why my brain is smarter than my skin?" I said "I know what you mean, it's just amazing that way. You're so smart."

Imogen yesterday on her "boyfriend" Jackson:
On our way to see him, "He's the best guy I could ever find."
And later after saying goodbye, "It's just so hard to leave the person you love the most."
She asked me if I knew Daddy when I was a child. I said no. "Well I know this person and I'm going to marry him," she replied.
