Are you going out dressed like that?

Cupcakes are NOT a breakfast food!

Running away? I'll help you pack.
Running away? Is that a threat or a promise?

Who do you think you are?
Who said life was going to be easy?
Why? Because I SAID so, that's why!

You will ALWAYS be my baby.
You're going to put your eye out with that thing!
Your father is going to hear about this when HE gets home!
You're the oldest. You should know better.
