Today we beat Bowser on Mario Bros on DS. It was a big deal for the girls and they keep saying, "I can't believe we finally did it!" Well, for those of you who have done it, you know that the credits run afterwards. Now for the good story.

Lillie - what were all those words at the end of the game?

Mom - the names of the people who made the game - they all appeared to be Chinese or Japanese names.

Lillie (a bit confused)- I thought Santa made the game?!?

Mom (trying to recover) - well, then I guess they must have been elf names.

Lillie - that is what I thought.

Whew, just about blew that one since we still believe. :)

All Grown-up

This morning during school time Lillie and I were reminiscing about her preschool days. Here was our conversation:

Lillie - Mom, do you remember that one day when one of the other kids said that their favorite color was blue or something like that? And I got upset because that was my favorite color and they couldn't have that as theirs.

Mom - I don't remember that day, but it was probably a fun day talking about our favorite colors.

Lillie - Yeah, it was. Of course, now that I am all grown-up, I know that more than one person can have the same favorite color.

Picky Promise

It has been awhile since I posted. I will say I will do better, but time will only tell.... :)

Last night I decided to lay down with Gracie who had woke herself up coughing about hour after going to sleep. She was wide awake and very happy to have me, since it had a been a long time since I laid with her. Here was our conversation (which was very random):

Gracie: Mom, I promise I am not going to pick my nose anymore!

Mom: Really, that is good.

Gracie (giggling): Well, maybe not, but there is always soap and water. We do still have soap, don't we?

Mom: Yes, we always have soap.

Gracie: Okay, well goodnight.

There was other conversations, but that was the most interesting one.
