Stella has a doll named, Sweet Pea. While getting into the car the other day: S: Did you know that Sweet Pea is Jewish? M: No. S: And she is Russian? M: I had no idea. S: Well, you should have known. M: Why? S: Because you bought her for me.

Mama: What are you thankful for today? Stella: Bagels. Mama: Interesting. Why? Stella: Have you ever had one that was still warm? It is like a tickle pillow on my tongue. Mama: So, bagels it is.
