Scene: Mama is helping Ting Ting pull on her socks and shoes.
TING TING: Mama, I need to call my piggies.
MAMA (Thinking perhaps "piggies" refers to her toes): Your piggies? You want me to count them?
TING TING: No, I need to call the piggies on my pig farm.
MAMA: Oh. Well, how do you do that?
TING TING: I say, "PIGS! Come on over here!"
MAMA: You mean you don't say, "Sooey! SOOOO-EEEY!"
TING TING (looking at Mama as if she's from Mars): Umm, no. I say, "PIGS! Get on over here right now!"
No, I don't know where she gets this stuff.
15 minutes later, in the car
TING TING: Mama, I want to be a mermaid.
MAMA: A mermaid? Why?
TING TING: I want to live under the water and eat jellyfish.
