Two comments from Cora tonight:

Cora: Do you ever have that feeling when you get so mad at someone you want to do something bad to them too?
Me: Yes, I do.
Cora: I get that feeling at Milly. A lot.
Cora: Thanks for my new lunchbox mom! You and dad are the best parents I've ever met!

Today, Milly came up from the basement sobbing... about this: "Cora is hexing me!!" While Cora is screaming up after her "They were NICE hexes!!" *facepalm*

Tonight at bedtime were some gems from both girls - in different ways.

Me: Milly, you can't wear that ring to bed ok?  Besides, that is Cora's
Milly:  But I'll be careful!
Me: It's just not a good idea to wear it while you sleep.  Maybe someday we'll get you one.
Milly:  Can I have a diamond ring?

Cora and I were reading a book called Sisters as our bedtime story.  It is about two sisters who are different in many ways, but also in many ways alike.  As they listed all the ways the sisters were alike, Cora was giving a "thumbs up" to all the things she also liked (sugar snap peas, playing in puddles, etc).  At the end the way the girls are most alike - is that they "love each other so very much."  Cora stopped and said - "That is a big thumbs up."  Then on the last page of the book the older sister is sitting hugging and cradling the younger sister.  Cora silently put the book down and gave that page two thumbs up.
