A Riot

Last week when the girls were taking a bath they kept getting in and out, in and out...retrieving more toys to play with in the tub. After a few minutes of the back and forth, Justin went in the bathroom to see what was going on. Mallory had put 5 or 6 STUFFED animals in the bath. Out they went, with much protest, and into the dryer. Sheesh!

Ava asked my mom why her house was always so clean, to which she responded that she likes a clean and tidy house. Then Ava then said- "I think that's just a waste of time."

Then a few nights ago Ava would NOT go to sleep. She was hot and wanted to change pajamas and was having a meltdown. Justin told her she was hot because she was "crying her head off." And the panic began. She thought she could literally cry her head off and was lying on the floor petrified that her head would in fact disengage from her body.

Last night Justin was watching an episode of Two and a Half Men. One of the characters blurted out, "I'm getting laid tonight" JUST as the girls ran in the room. Ava then quipped, "I'm getting LATE tonight"...but it still sounded like Laid. *sigh*

Regarding the cooking issue, what you don't remember is that when you girls were little, we ate casseroles, casseroles, casseroles, and jello, jello.
Regarding Miss Ava's comment that "Nana, why do you wear your hair that way? It looks like boy's hair!"....tell her I'm going to work on a new hairdo. I'm humbled.

Oh I specifically remember "salmon loaf." *shudder* I always liked all your food regardless of whether it was a casserole or a fresh "gourmet" salad...well except for the salmon thing... Ava has actually been eating burritos and tacos...can you believe it?
