Little Jokers

This morning I went into Emily and Kaylee's room to get them up and saw what you see in the picture to the left. Emily had extended herself precariously over the edge of her crib, grabbed the clean diaper bin, pulled out all the pull-up training pant diapers and put all of them on! This was an act of comedic genius according to both girls.

A couple of days ago they were talking about missing Nicole (who's now in Africa ... link to her "Journey" blog to the right). I suggested they pray for her. They both prayed, "Dear Jesus, help 'Cole not to do up her buttons wrong." Then they both began pretending their index fingers were Nicole and had an extended dialogue with her, complete with a made-up high pitched voice every time the finger spoke. Emily then stuck 'Cole in her nostril and laughingly declared, "'Cole's up my nose!" Kaylee started chewing her finger and said, "I'm eating 'Cole!"

For more toddler madness (Involving crab apple hygiene and monster babies), take a look at the following video:

Wow! I’m honoured to be such an important part of your daughter’s lives that they feel comfortable enough to stick me up their nose/eat me. Truly...honoured...

The prayer about the buttons is right on by the way. I need all the help I can get not to do up those buttons wrong. I’m tempted to just give up on clothing with buttons at all, but then buttons are a very important part of life and learning how to do those buttons up too...buttons...
