Here come the Holidays

The time between Halloween and Thanksgiving always goes so fast. And then its a blur all the way through New Years.

Claire has been coming up with some great quotes lately, though she has no idea.

She heard a truck backing up and mistook it for tv being censored. She explained that they play the BEEP over a bad word so you can't hear it. I asked her what kind of bad words they say, and she answered right away with "Like crap. Like 'Oh Crap!' You know." I said I did, and she had no ideas on any other bad words. Six years and she only knows crap? Not bad.

She was reading a menu and and thought Chicken Chow Mein was 'Chicken Chew Meat'.

And lastly, she was singing 'There's a Little Wheel Turning in My Heart", but she thought
(actually still thinks, I haven't been able to correct her just yet) the lyrics were "There's a Little Mini Turtle in My Heart. Which doesn't make a lot of sense. But taken literally, and what isn't in the world of a six year old, the correct words aren't any better.

Milena has yet to even give us a word to quote, but she has mastered blowing raspberries and does it on request, and thats fun.

Is it the job of the aunt Monnie to teach more swear words?!
She's so fun and that Milena is such a doll!
