Natalie: "Mom, I just love animals. When I grow up I want to work outside with animals and be Mother Nature."
Natalie: "Mom, I miss the old days."
Me: "What do you mean?"
Natalie: "Preschool and show n'tell."
(Yeah, I miss being carded and having 20 year old skin!)
Natalie: "Mom, yellow is now my favorite color because it is important."
Me: "Hmmm...what makes it important?"
Natalie: "Because the sun is yellow and light is very, very important, but so is gray -- gray is an important color, too because elephants are gray."
Natalie: "Mom, sometimes your eyes look weird."
Me: "Weird? How do you mean?"
Natalie: "Well, sometimes they look like grandpa's with wrinkles in the corner."
(Great...I'm not only getting older, I'm getting weirder, too)
