Peeling cans

Eva wants a can of ravioli for lunch.

Eva: Dad, can I peel it?
Dad: Peel what?
Eva: The can, can I use that thing to peel the can?
Dad: You don't really call it "peeling" a can.  And no, you cannot.

It's a disaster

We're cleaning Tom's room.  It looks like a bomb has gone off.

Eva: Tom, your room is a deeyasaster.
Dad: You mean disaster? And yes it is.

What are these supposed to be?

We're eating dinner.  Eva has mushrooms left on her place.  She spears one with her fork and points it at me.

Eva: What are these SUPPOSED to be?
Dad:  They're supposed to be, and they are, mushrooms.  And you're SUPPOSED to eat them.

Grandpa shoes

Tom has new school shoes on.

Tom: Dad, look, I'm wearing old grandpa shoes like you.
Dad: Grandpa shoes huh?
Tom: And you've got the same trousers on. You're copying me.

Against the Lord

Mom: Oh, that's the kind of car I had at my wedding.
Tom: When you married Dad or when you married Zac's dad?
Eva: You married two mans? That's against the Lord.
Mom: I didn't marry them both at the same time!

Presto change-o

Eva: Mom, how do you change into a cat?
