Things My Daughters Asked Me Today 1. Chasing Goslings

This is the first of a regular feature in which I post all the questions my 3 year old twins asked me during the day. Future posts will be more comprehensive, but since I just came up with this idea today, this will be a bit shorter than most.
These questions were asked between 1 pm and 7 pm today.

Why do we bend our knees when we jump?

Abigail: Can I be a bird for Halloween?
Me: Okay.
Abigail: Can I fly?
Me: I don't think so.
Abigail: Awww.

Is Uncle Bobby your father?
Me: No, he's my brother.
Abby: And Johnna is our cousin.
Me: Right.
Julia: Who is our second cousin?
Me: ......

Daddy! Daddy daddy daddy?
Me (on the phone): Julia, I'm the phone.
Julia: I know. Daddy. Excuse me. OK. What sound does a hippopotamus sound like?
Julia: OK. Thank you.

I am reading a magazine with Julia in my lap.
Julia: Who is that?
Me: Chevy Chase.
Julia: Does him chase people?
Me: I don't know. Probably sometimes.
Julia: Who's that?
Me: Ryan Gosling.
Julia: Does him chase goslings?
Me: Do you know what a gosling is?
Julia: I don't know. Who's that?
Me: Heidi
Julia: Does her chase colds that have legs?
Me: Good question.
Julia: Can we have ice cream?
