An Oldie

She's watching her first Shirley Temple movie now. Cute looks, drama, singing and dancing.

I'm going to be sorry. I can just feel it.

Creation Vs.

C: Mommy, God made everything. Right?
Me: In a manner of speaking.
C: Okay! God made everything. (Thinks for a second.) Oh - except China made some things, too.

A New Name

Lately, when C talks about her daddy, she sometimes refers to him as "that demonstrated nut."

Where does she come up with this stuff?

What A Mess!

C: Momma!! Come up and see this awful mess in the bathroom! Come quickly!!

Me (racing up the steps with all sorts of scenarios flashing through my imagination): COMING!…(seeing nothing extraordinary)…what's wrong?

C: LOOK! Look at that!! Someone used up all the toilet paper and DIDN'T CHANGE THE ROLL!!

Ah. Finally someone understands me!

Why She Loves Me

C wore a short-sleeved dress to church today, and has been running around the house without her sweater all day (against my advice).

It's past bedtime now, and we're just waiting for Daddy to get home so she will go to bed. She climbs up on my lap. We chat for a few minutes about the appeal of Facebook, and then she asks, "Momma, do you know one thing I really do like about you? Really, a lot?"

Me: What?

C (as she pulls my arms around her): You're warm!
