"Yes, thank you for backpacks."
"An' bus"
"Thank you for our bus."
"Yeah, uder bus"
"Um, okay, thank you for the other bus, too."
"Yeah, uder bus"
"Okay, God, thank you for ALL the buses in the whole wide world."
"Scratch that. Not all the buses. Just thank you for the ones we can ride and the play with each day."
"Yeah. Ma-men."
