Conversations in the Car and a Christmas List

Jill to Dad:

          Jill: If I ask you a question, will you tell me the truth?

          Dad: Of course!

          Jill:: Is there really a Santa Claus?

          Dad: Do you really want to know?

          Jill: Yes

          Dad: There is no Santa Claus.  
Jill: (crying) But what about the Easter Bunny?
Dad: Nope
Dad: And there is no Tooth Fairy either. 
Later, to Stephanie:
Jill: If I ask you a question, will you tell me the truth?
Stephanie: Of course!
Jill: Is there really a Santa Claus, an Easter Bunny and a Tooth Fairy?
Stephanie: Of course! Where else would all those presents come from?
Jill: Yeah, that makes sense.

Mia and Jill were talking about caterpillars when Jill told about a butterfly cage they had at school. First the caterpillars ate the leaves, then they formed a chrysalis, and then the kids actually saw a butterfly emerge. Jill said there was "paint" on the bottom of the cage from the butterfly's wings.
Mia: I think the fairies paint their wings. (Pause) I want to catch a fairy.
Jill:  Once, when I lost a tooth, I saw a little light under my pillow!
Mia: I saw that, too!
I looked in the rearview mirror and saw Mia trying to wiggle one of her teeth.
