Quotable Kids: Mortality and Gender Roles Edition

Will, to Finn: Something's happening to our [blanket] cave. It's wilting. That means this cave is going to die.

Will, doting on Bridget, to me: Soon she'll need lipstick!
Me: Why?
W: 'Cause! She's a girl! Boys need Chapstick.

Finn, ruminating while eating, to me: [Mrs. Walsh's dog] Zoe bites on bones 'cause they're not real. [Pause] And Zoe can bite on dead people.

Finn, watching Tangled during family movie night: I'm not scared! [Confidingly] When I was two, I was scared.
