Out of the mouths of babes...

So, today, while Tony was pumping gas, Laney asked me to watch her make fishy faces. I giggled and told her they were adorable. Then she asked me to make one AND pretend I was swimming. So, buckled in the front seat, I did my best impression of a swimming fish. (STOP that laughing!) She then giggled, so I told her it was her turn again. She complied, including the swimming part. This is where the conversation about KILLED me. I mean it.

Laney: I'm swimming, but I don't have a tail like fish do.

Me: No, people don't have tails.

Laney: Hmm, well, Baba does...(wait for it, wait for it) in the front!!!

Me: Bwahhahahahahahahha!!!

Seriously, tears were STREAMING down my face. Tony could hear me laughing outside the Jeep. I could barely contain myself to retell the story! Heck, I can barely contain myself now, but I have to because the girls are sleeping. Seriously, aside from her astute observations, isn't she just so stinkin' smart?

These girls are hysterical. And the more I laugh, the more calories I burn. OK girls, tomorrow make me laugh about 1,000 times to burn off all the wings I ate tonight!

I love you girls!

Well, I have never heard it called a front tail before. I will have to remember that.

OK, I'm laughing so hard I'm about to wake Jaxson up. I don't even know what to say I can't quit laughing.

We have a story like that . . . Robert was wearing a pair of gray boxer briefs and my youngest said, "Daddy, I like your elephant shorts."

I needed that laugh tonight from this forsaken hospital room!! That is hysterical!

I have not for one second forgot about getting together. If I could get our family well... for a week... good night? Are we under some attack or what??

Love those girls! I so so so want to meet them. Oh, and in case your wondering because I don't think I have ever told you, our Christmas break trip to Indiana did not pan out in any way like I thought. We went to Indianapolis with me as sick as a dog. There and back in a matter of hours.

Thanks for the laugh!
