jack (singing to the tune of "all for the glory of you"): every moment, all i say and do, let this life i live be all for the glory of steak!!

abby: mommy, look at how much of this book i've read.
me: that's awesome, abby!!! it's wonderful that you love to read so much.
abby: why, mommy?
me: well, when you read, it helps your brain to be healthier and stronger.
abby: oh, so reading is kind of like eating salmon?!?
