Chicken Lips

Going to admit something here...the girls wouldn't settle down for bed last night, so we separated them and brought Abby to bed with us.  Well, after chatting with Abby for a few, I felt guilty that Laney was all alone in her bed, wide awake.  So I yelled for her to bring her blanket and come sleep with us too.  So yes, two adults, two four year olds, and two dogs were all in our room last night.  All humans were in our queen sized bed and one dog is on the floor while the other is in his crate.  And yes.  This happens more often than not.  Go ahead and criticize.  I mean, my neck and back yowl in the morning from all of the funky positions I have to sleep in, but it is sometimes so worth it.

So anyway, we had just settled in and everyone was calming down.  Next thing you know, Abby says, "Mama, I love you...(insert dramatic pause)  Chicken Lips."   I was just starting to get all misty, with warm Mama feelings when that Chicken Lips part came out.  I thought I was going to roll off the bed from laughing.

Bwhahahahahahaah I was like, ok, sure.  "I love you too, Chicken Legs!"  Which brought about hysterical giggles from everyone but Baba and the dogs.  They were all actually TRYING to sleep!  BAH!

So tonight, after you say your prayers, night time routine says, and give kisses.  Don't forget to tell the ones you love, "I LOVE YOU, CHICKEN LIPS!"  It's sure to bring a smile and sweet dreams!
