boogers and bathrooms

I was going to the bathroom and Nina says through the door, "Mom! I got lots of boogers out. You wanna see one?"

I replied, "No."

She sneaks open the door a bit and shoves her little arm through, crumpled tissue in hand and, of course, a tiny booger. "See, it's little."

"Awesome," I said.

it's the little things

Audrey says to Michael, "I love Mrs. Holom. She's so nice. She's always bending down."

(Mrs. Holom is her kindergarten teacher)

Nina didn't get the Sympathy Award

My in-laws recently had to put their beloved cat to sleep. It's been a big topic of discussion in our household. Nina's even offered our cat, Fredo, to them.

During Mike & Lynne's visit this weekend, the girls started the usual car/dinner game of "raise your hand if..."

"Raise your hand if you're 5." Audrey raises her hand.

"Raise your hand if you have a sister." All 3 girls raise their hand.

"Raise your hand if you love your mom." Everyone raises their hand.

Nina then says, "Raise your hand if you have a dead cat." Mike & Lynne slowly raise their hands (bless them).
