A Braysay… about Halloween Costumes

Last night, Braylon & I were discussing what zoo animal we would choose to keep as a pet in our backyard. I said, “how ’bout an anteater, so he could eat all the fire ants in the yard?!”. He replied in a most intelligent way,

“people dress up as ants. you know, some people dress up for Halloween as what they’re allergic to.”


I said, “well, that would be be pretty messy if Brady dressed up as cottage cheese!” I kept coming up w/silly allergic costumes till he stopped me,

“that’s not funny anymore.”

A minute later, he grabbed my hand tight into his, pulled it close to his pillow, quietly said, “I love you, mommy”, & fell asleep.


AngeLingo…about broken-egg eyes

This morning, she was pushing my cheeks together to make my face look like a chubby bunny & she looked at my eyes up close. Then said with a very concerned look,”Mommy, baby egg eye, break?”

It took me a second, but I think she saw how I looked so tired and the whites of my eyes reminded her of a small (baby) white egg, whose shell is broken. Looks like I need to go back to bed for a while!
