She's a riot!

So I had the news on this morning and they showed a preview of what's going to be on 20/20 tonight. It was this man - artist born with no legs.
Of course she had a ton of questions...
Olivia: Why doesn't he have legs?
me: He was born that way.
Olivia: Why?
me: Because that's how God made him.
Olivia: Why?
me: Because he's special.
Olivia: Does he have to wear pants?
me: No
Olivia: Then you could probably see his butt if he lifted up his shirt.
me: Well, then maybe he does wear pants, just really really short ones.
Olivia: Yes, because he wouldn't want anyone to see his butt.
me: Ya, you're probably right.
Then Olivia disappeared for a few minutes and came back with a baby doll
Olivia: Hey mom, this is my baby. She was born with no legs. She's special.
me: Oh, she's beautiful. What's her name?
Olivia: Baby No-Legs
me: Great name!
Olivia: And she wears really short pants so you can't see her bottom. I have to carry her everywhere, but when she gets bigger she'll ride on a skateboard (this is what the guy was riding on on the news).
About an hour later she comes to me with her new My Little Pony
Olivia: Hey mom, this is my baby. She was born with no legs. She's special.
me: Oh, she's beautiful. What's her name?
Olivia: Pony No-Legs
me: laughing
Who knows how long she'll talk about this. It's not funny that this guy has no legs, I'm laughing at her - I guess it's more funny to hear it come out of her mouth and the way she is so matter of fact about it all. She's just hilarious.
