After her father made her angry with some random transgression:
Cara: Mom? How old is Daddy?
Cara: Well, in that case, he gets to sit in timeout for thirty minutes. DADDY!!! SIT IN TIMEOUT FOR THIRTY MINUTES!!!
After Oliver ran smack-dab into the wall as he was chasing after Sophie:
[Shaking her head in exasperation] Sometimes I just don’t know about that boy.
As Oliver tried to take Cara’s banana:
[Cara held the banana high over her head – just out of Ollie’s reach.] NO, OLLIE! It’s my prerogative as the BIG SISTER to get the first banana.
Telling a story to herself:
…and the ogre went to the refrigerator and he said, “But there are no groceries. I’ll eat a little boy!”
On one of her many chosen professions:
I’ve decided I’m going to be a policeman so I can drive fast and throw people in jail.
On why she couldn’t help clean her room:
Cara: But, MOM! I’m a princess and a princess’s servants do that!
Me: So I’m your servant?
Cara: I thought you knew that.
I’m sure I’m forgetting a lot of stuff she’s said because she does talk a lot. Considering she’s only three, I shudder to think what she’s going to be like in ten years.
