::phone call from an 8 year old::

"Hi mom!"

"Hi love!"

"Hey, do you mind if we use some of the paint in the garage to paint some ants' butts?"

"...."

"No really! If you hold them very gently by their heads and just dip their little booties in the paint, it really works!"

"Um...but...WHY??"

"So we can identify them later if we see them in the wild. DUH."

Oh my gosh! You need to have Anna dip their little booties in the paint and then put them on paper and let them crawl around and then sell the artwork on Etsy!

Your next blog better be your highlights of the last year!

Are you keeping all these conversations for future use in a book? They are too outrageous to just let go. You can't ignore them, they must be shared by the masses !
" Paint ants butts !" -------
WOW ( shaking my head )
