Two more reasons why she's one of the neatest kids I know

Friday I had to have some labs done at the Indian Clinic. It was bitter cold that morning and on the way in we basically ran. There was no stopping to take a look at our surroundings, we just got out of that wind. When they had enough of my blood and urine to satisfy Nosferatu -- and well, I don't know who would want my urine -- we bundled up to head back out to the van. They had sprinkled salt on the sidewalks and it was all over the path to the van. Kady gasped when she saw it and exclaimed, "Oh wook, Momma! It's snowing!!" Abby said, "No, silly. That's salt." Kady gasped again and said, "Oh wow. Momma! It's salting!"

Tonight Tater and the tots were going to come out for dinner and to watch a movie. Before they got here Kady was quizzing me about who was coming out. She asked if Grammy was coming and I said, no, it would just Yaya and the kids. She thought for a minute and said, "Momma, how come we don't see Uncle Bubba much anymore?" They see Jon occasionally, but certainly not as much as they used to and I'm sure that's hard for them. I said, "Well, honey, Uncle Bubba and YaYa are divorced, so well, technically he's not really in the family anymore." She replied, "Well, it's not fair that we see YaYa more than him." I said, "Well, hon, Yaya's my sister and I can't get rid of her. You're stuck with that one." She asked, "Is he still my uncle?" I said, "You bet." Then she asked, "And can I still call him Uncle Bubba?" At this point Paul intervened and said, "Yes, honey, you can call him anything you want." Excitedly she said, "Cool! Can I call him Uncle Steve?"

Every kid should have an Uncle Steve... even if they have to create him on their own.

She sounds adorably precocious. I have a child very much like that at home. Want another? Free shipping!!

I think, maybe, that my next trip out of state needs to be with my Chicken to visit your brood. I want to pinch their cheeks via the innernets but it is not as satisfying.

Shut. Up. Uncle Steve almost made me snort Diet Cherry Vanilla DP out my nose.

Love that Kady!
