Asking Maya one day: "Who do we pray to?" Her response: "Michael Jordan." We still have no idea why in the world she said that. I think she was trying to be funny.
Another time, Maya was arguing with me in the car (being the independent, outspoken 4 year old that she is) and I told her that she can just be so stubborn sometimes. She asked me what the word stubborn meant. As I was explaining it to her, she abruptly interrupts me and says, "You keep using these big words that are confusing me. I don't want to talk about it anymore. This conversation is over." (I have a feeling that the last line is something I have said a time or two ;)).
