. . . the vernacular

Four-year-olds have a lot to say.  There is a lot going on in their worlds, and a lot going on in their minds.  Regarding her world, Averie says:
"If we don't have sugar, then little kids can't have any candy."
"I love this salad dressing. Italian, its my favorite. I'll eat it 'til I go to heaven."
"Mama, please can you plant a tomato tree?"
"That music was hittin' on me. I felt it and I was like, just dancin'."
"This ice cream is making me hot hands."
"Mama, I rub your kisses in so they stay in my heart."
Wait, what? 
Did you say, "Awww, that's adorable?" 
Thought you did.
