Endangered Species

We spent several hours today at Alex's house. Well, the house that he is buying. The grass (or should I say weeds) was very tall. Also, the yard was full of glass and construction debris that the builder had no intention of cleaning up. So we took rakes, a weed whacker, gloves and a garbage can and cleaned up the front and back yard. While I was sweeping by the front door, I found a horny toad. Jeremy picked it up and let Jyly hold it. It was fine until it moved. Then she tossed it.

Kids Say The Darndest Things!

Last night, Jyly was sitting on her bed reading a book. She then picked the book and held it close to her face. What happened next completely surprised me. She sniffed the book and exclaimed "smells like bum". It was one of those moments that you are dying laughing inside but you can't show her that what she said was funny. If she thinks it's funny, you never know when or where she might say it again. So now the question in my mind is, where did she come up with that!
