A conversation with my niece:
Niece: Auntie, I want to go to heaven.
Me: I do too.
Niece: Did you know they have angels in heaven?
Me: I wonder what they look like?
Niece: You don't know? They are white and they have wings. Did you know the devil has angels too?
Niece: Yes, and those angels have green skin.
"To Peace, Love, & Military Power" overheard while eating lunch, said as a toast of sorts by a soldier to his fellow soldiers at the table behind us. (I thanked them for their service to our country before they left.)
Last night I was discussing numbers with my 5 year old niece. She asked what my favorite number was, so I said 7 and 13 because they were odd numbers and they are prime numbers. She informed me that she doesn't like odd numbers because there are "left overs" but with even numbers there are not. So while driving today she said "Auntie is 11 a private number too?"
I am an: Aunt, Sister, Daughter, Speech Language Pathologist, God Mother, Friend, Enemy, Amateur Hobbyist Photographer, and most recently a wife. I have a healthy appreciation for laughter and appreciate being able to make informed decisions. This blog is titled literally after my grandmothers button collection and the initial writings centered around the funny things children say in honor of my paternal grandmother and her family famous notebooks of laughable librettos her grandchildren said. It has since morphed into a collection of funny things said to me by children as their therapist, musings of life, and a photography blog circle.
