Ahni the Strep Throat Kid and her side kick, Corina the Booger Head
So, we had some homemade chicken noodle and veggie soup which even picky eater Bob said was extremely delicious. Ok, he didn’t say extremely delicious but he did say something about it being good.
Booger Head and Mr. Picky Pants. Aren't they cute?
Anyway, the girls ate and chatted with us even though they were not feeling all that well. After lunch, while I was cleaning up the kitchen, Corina, the three year old, came up to me and had lots to talk about.
“Nona, I want to die when you die.”
"When people get old they die and then I would miss you so I want to die when you die.”
“Well, I am not old and won’t be dying any time soon so you don’t have to worry about dying, Reenie.”
“Well, grandpa died and so when you and me die we get to see him again and that will be fun.”
“ Well, that’s true. I still think I want to live a bit longer if that’s ok with you.”
“Yeah but when we die we get to see God and my teacher says He’s a nice guy so that will be fun.”
“You know what would be fun right now? Cookies!”
Seriously, these deep thinking three year olds scare me.
Anyway, let me tell you about a giveaway that Butts and Ashes is hosting and just in time for the holidays to boot. The good folks over at CSN Stores have offered to give one of my readers a $45 gift code good towards anything offered in their more than 200 stores. Looking to update your bathroom cabinets before the in-laws come over for the holidays? They’ve got you covered. Need a beanbag, bar stool or bedspread? CSN Stores has them. Desperate for one last toy to go under the tree? You’ll find it at CSN and at a price that makes sense. Check them out for yourselves.
So how do you go about entering this fabulous giveaway and what does Harley have to do with it anyway and why am I so constantly long-winded instead of getting to the point? Glad you asked.
To enter the contest all you have to do is tell me your family’s favorite Christmas tradition. Something that sets your family apart from all the rest. Come on, spill the beans. Go on, I’m waiting.
The winner will be hand chosen by Harley himself. Ok, actually the winner will be beak chosen. That’s right, Harley the amazing African Grey will pick the winning name from a bowl, or something like that. I’ll even take a video of it for you to make sure he doesn’t cheat.
Harley, the Amazing African Grey
As for the long-windedness part: It’s a gift.
Marla, the Amazing Long-Winded Woman
