Lily Margaret

Last night, we went to the mall for dinner. Joe's away on business and I just didn't feel like cooking, OK??? Just get off my back about it! Geesh! We were in line at Panda Express and as I'm paying, the man says to Lily, "I'll trade you that stuffed animal for a chocolate chip cookie." Her head turned to the side in thought and at that moment I realize that I am staring at the works of MY genetics in a little 5 year old girl. I would seriously consider taking him up on that offer. After a lengthy pause she shook her head 'no'.
*By they way, it was not one of her beloved puppies. If that were the case, there would not have been any hesitation.

Lily has also been learning about different countries in school and I have totally ripped her off by not teaching her that there is life outside of Iowa! It has rocked her world! Feeling very convicted about that one! For example, the day she ran up to me after school and said, "MOM! Did you know that not everyone speaks English?!?" (ouch.) It has provided some precious moment such as last night when I was tucking her in she asked all sleepily, "Mommy, have I ever been to the U.S.A.?" Yes, baby, you have. I thought I would just explain that one in the morning.
