Avery: Chicken butt!
Helen comes into the kitchen.
Avery: I’ve been looking for you!

Bennett: I’m nabby!
Avery while wearing a stethoscope: I’m a doctor!
a second later..: Dr. Seuss!
A friend brought over some homemade cookies which we let Avery and Bennett eat. Cookies were finished and we had been playing in the living room for a little while when Bennett declared: I want a cracker!
