Brutally Honest

Yardboy and I met T and her husband about 12 years ago. They would do just about anything for us, as we would for them. T is like a sister to me. We even argue like sisters. Yardboy and T's husband get along very well. T's children and our children love each other too. Ahhhh, friends.

I got a call from T this evening. She had a favor to ask. T said she needed someone "brutally honest" and that I was the most "brutally honest" person she knew.

I must admit, I consider honesty to be one of my best and worst qualities. I am learning to speak the truth in love. I think I do a better job of keeping my mouth shut than I did 12 years ago. Nevertheless, she did call the right person.

What does she want me to do?

She and her husband want me to smell their new house to determine if it smells like cat urine. They figured I would know what feline pee smells like since I have a cat.

I couldn't stop laughing! Of course, I'd love to so the sniff test on the new home. What a unique opportunity to help out a friend. :)

We are going over to the new house after church tomorrow. T is going to feed us lunch and all I have to do is determine if the place reeks of kitty tinkle. That sounds like a deal to me!

Results later...

Okay, it is a week later.

We went to my friends' home and there was a scent, but it wasn't bad, and it wasn't cat urine. We were thinking it might smell like a bird. We may never know.

Private Parts

Little Man was just watching Playhouse Disney when a short clip about cows and milk came on.

Shocked, Little Man came over to me and exclaimed, "Mommy, people were touching that cow's private parts!"

I explained to him that they were milking the cow and it was okay.

He looked confused.

He repeated, "They were touching the cow's private parts!"

I told him that those were the cow's boobies and that is how the farmers get the milk out. I wish I had a picture of him at that instant. The disgusted look was priceless.

His next comment was, "That's yucky! The milk was coming out of the cow's private parts!"

I wonder what he will say this afternoon when I offer him a cup of milk. Breastfeeding the new baby should be interesting too. We will see...

First Day of Pre K

Little Man started preschool today. He loved it last year, and I think he will enjoy it again this year too.

I had clothes picked out for him, but he didn't like what I chose. He picked these out all by himself.
He loves this huge backpack. Diego is the best!
"A mosquito-spider bit my finger." I checked it out and couldn't see anything. He was fine just a minute later.
