Yawns and Smiles

"Mom, Why does it have to be that all the bad things are contagious like germs and the flu?"

"I'm not sure, Honey. But, that's a good question."

"Well, I don't like that bad stuff is contagious. It should be the good things instead of gross yucky things like gross yucky germs and stuff."

"I guess that is what makes them extra gross."

"More good things should be contagious like Smiles and Yawns-those are contagious, you know?- especially yawns. Well, smiles are too. But, especially yawns. It should be more good things like that. Don't you think?"

"That would be very nice."

"Are you yawning, Mom? Me too! and Look!--We are both smiling! See, why can't more good things be contagious?"

Glances Across the Street

My sweet girl wants to be a scary dead fairy this Halloween. When she got home from school, she was so anxious to try on her costume and wig(she was thrilled about the wig) and run across the street to go show her Best Friend. She grabbed the umbrella (not b/c it was raining, but, because she did not want anyone else to see her) and used it as an "invisibility cloak." while walking across the street. I watched from the window as she rang the door bell and could see her shoulders slump when she realized her BFF was not home. The excited smile on her face had disappeared. So for the rest of the afternoon, she took periodic glances across the street for signs that her BFF had arrived. Luckily, it wasn't too long of a Waiting Game.
