My little nine-year-old Marina is looking very old lately. They grow up so fast!
Marina: What’s green and round and goes up and down? A watermelon in an elevator.
Marina: I have a boyfriend, but there are two other boys who like me.
Me: Oh really, Miss Popular?
Me: Miss Popular, you have chocolate on your face.
Marina: I have to write a song about an animal.
Me: Okay, what animal are you going to write about?
Marina: I don’t know.
Me: Well, I don’t know either.
Marina: But you’re the teacher!
Me: But you’re the student, and it’s your homework!
