Everytime she was told to do something she would say hell, and everyone would then scream watch your mouth, which was a small laugh I enjoyed. She was a bit morbid at times, but I think that is how most children are because they have not yet learned to filter what they say yet.

Or when she wanted to to the story of ghosts before bed. I also enjoyed when she was on the bus and the man tried to rip her chain off, and she bit the man.
