Juliana: You are a Power Ranger? Wow!
Molly: Yah! (showing off her Power Ranger moves)
Juliana: I am have a puzzle just for Power Rangers.
Juliana: (placing a puzzle in front of Molly to put together, the kind of puzzle where you remove a puzzle piece with the exterior of a food and underneath you see what is on the inside of the food) What Power Ranger are you?
Me: Are you the Red Power Ranger, the Blue Power Ranger?
Molly: I all dem.
Me: She’s all of them.

Me: Look Amália, this is the fish skeleton.
Molly: WHAT!?! Loooooook, Juliana! SKELETON FISH!
Juliana: Yes, those are the bones of the fish.
Molly: You like skeleton, Juliana?
Juliana: No, I don’t like skeletons, I am scared of them.
Molly: (serious) They not scary.
Me: Amália loves the skeleton.
