Little kids say the awesomest things. Here are some of the conversations we've had with Dashiell lately... Dash: I need to go to work. Me: Where do you work? Dash: On a bus! Me: Who rides on your bus? Dash: Just me. Me: What color is your bus? Dash: It's green! Chris (pointing to a starfish in a book): What's this? Dash: A fish star!...I want to eat it.
