Better Than Sliced Bread

My sister Holly gave birth to a little boy today. Dawson Luke Ward--7.14 pounds and 21 inches long. Both Holly and Dawson are healthy and happy.

I have the privilege of watching her two little girls during this time. This morning a neighbor asked the girls how they were doing. Four-year-old Ella responded:

ELLA: This is a very special and different day for me.
NEIGHBOR: Oh? Why's that?
ELLA: I get to stay with Mandy.

That's right, Ella. Score one for Aunt Mandy.

There's more than one way...

Last week I placed a piece of chicken on Sam's plate and said, "It's hot, Sam, can you blow on your chicken?"

He leaned in very close until his face was inches from his plate...and then he blew a kiss.
