Little Miss Malaprop

Friend Julie sent a Tickle Me Elmo (errr... Thanks... I think) and a set of wings and a purple star wand for the girlies in the mail. I opened it, and Claire wanted Elmo and MG wanted the wings, so we ignored the careful labeling. Mary Grace ran around being a "fairy" and doing "magic."

"I tricked the cat, Mommy! I'm going to trick you! Poof!"

(Her usage, while not strictly correct, actually makes a lot of sense, and shows higher-level awareness of grammar and how verbs are formed than she probably should have at age 3.)

That must be Abby Cadabby Gear! We had never heard of her until we got a book about her in the mail. With Abby as a baby name, we have obviously gotten more of it was the months have gone on....
