On a very hard day for Kiki, who had lost a partial tooth (the tooth fell out but the nerve stayed in), and had to see an endodontist and a dentist, and had a partial tooth extraction all the same day, Buddy tried to comfort her by getting her to see the bright side, "Don't worry, Kiki, it's special that you get to see 3 tooth experts in the same day! The endodontist, the dentist, and the tooth fairy!"
Me to Buddy: I'm disappointed that you don't want to go to the library concert, because I was looking forward to taking you.
Buddy: I don't want to go if the girls aren't going.
Kiki: Buddy, I want you to go even if I can't go. I didn't do things when I had a year at home without Yaya and I missed things like that and I wish I could change it now. So please go and come home and tell us all about it.
