Did you have one of those kids...


..you know..the one you say..

"Someday I hope you have a child...Just.Like.You."

Yeah...heehee.

Listen to this exchange between my youngest, Brandi, and her 5-year old daughter, Ella Ireland..


"Mommy, we had some great lunch today.."

"Good - what did you have?"

"Some really good potatoes..and I saved some for you & Daddy!"

"Aw. that's sweet.."

"Here.."

(she reached into the pocket of her cute little uniform pants...and pulls out a couple of wilted, lint-covered, fuzzy, un-wrapped potato wedges..)

no napkin, no baggie, just 2 sad, fuzzy smooched, linty potato wedges..

And being the good Mommy she is...she TOOK A BITE!

Bwhaaaa hahahaa!

What goes around, Brandi...

hehehee :-)
This is no ordinary 5 year old you're dealing with...

Yes, a fantastic mom moment... and taking a bite was exactly what she should have done... to see a smile on that beautiful little face.

She is so pretty. Reminds me of Kristen a lot (she had long dark hair too - but not curly).

Kristen used to walk home from school by a florist shop. She would go in their dumpster and bring me slightly wilted roses and not-too-old carnations.

She is a cutie! Wish she and my five year old could meet. Who knows what could become of life then.
