I WAS STANDING AT THE DRYER FOLDING LAUNDRY THIS MORNING AND MIA WAS STANDING IN THE HALLWAY AGAINST THE WALL RUBBING HER BODY BACK AND FORTH.
ME: MIA STOP DOING THAT (BECAUSE I WAS WORRIED SHE WAS GETTING FUZZBALLS ON HER CLOTHES)
MIA: BUT MOM, IT'S GOOD EXERCISE
ME: OKAY......KEEP GOING
MIA: I DON'T LIKE EGGS ANYMORE
ME: YOU DON'T LIKE EGGS?
MIA: NOPE....EXCEPT GRANDMA'S EGGS
ME: GRANDMA MARTIN'S EGGS?
MIA: YEP, YOUR MOM'S EGGS
WHAT A RANDOM GIRL.....I LOVE HER

AS PART OF MIA'S BIRTHDAY, I TOOK HER TO A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN PAINT YOUR OWN POTTERY AND DO OTHER STUFF. IT IS A GREAT PLACE. I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING TOO BUT WE ARE TOO POOR RIGHT NOW. I GUESS I WOULD RATHER HAVE GROCERIES! ANYWAY, MIA PAINTED A LITTLE BOX IN THE SHAPE OF A PURSE, AUNT RUTH DID A GLASS PIECE FOR HER BATHROOM AND AUNT MARYANN DID A SCALLOPED BOWL. IT WAS LOADS OF FUN.
ACTUALLY......IT WAS MORE LIKE SLEEPING IN THE TENT IN THE YARD. I DID NOT PARTICIPATE BECAUSE MY SHOULDER WAS STILL VERY PAINFUL AND I NEEDED SOME GOOD SLEEP. BEN AND THE KIDS HAD A GREAT TIME AND EVEN THOUGH THE PICTURES AREN'T DARK IT WAS VERY DARK OUT THERE. DALLIN LOVED THE FLASHLIGHT. THE PICURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES ABOUT HOW HARD IT WAS TO GET THE KIDS TO POSE FOR THE PICTURES. I THINK IT WAS BECAUSE IT WAS TOO DARK TO SEE ME.

Ben and Mia were sitting on the couch earlier and Mia was asking Ben what she was gonna get for Christmas. He replied by saying, "I don't know, maybe a lump of coal.' Mia said, "a lump of coal?" Ben was like "yeah, a lump of coal, you burn it in a fire." Mia paused for a minute and then said, "I don't think I wanta lump of coal." Ben and I just started laughing and then Mia shouted, "dad, don't laugh at me......coal makes fires and I might get burnt.".......it was good for a laugh anyway. Maybe you had to be here.
