...that I don't want to forget.

Miles: "Mom, there just isn't anything better than a baby."
Me: "Yeah? Why?"
Miles: "Because nothing in the world loves you like a baby."
*heart melting*

Hannah: "Mom. I just catched this fly and pulled the legs off so it buzzes, and I'm gonna put in the spider web in the barn and watch it wrap it up."
