Avery has a crush on her older cousin Nathan. She has for some time. Today she was putting on some GloStick earrings and wanted me to put on a pretty dress that would go with them. (Put the dress on her, to clarify.)
"Nathan's going to love this," she said.
"Nathan's not here, Sweetheart," I said.
"I know but when Nathan sees me like this he's going to say, 'What the hell is that?' " she said with a cherubic smile, and then left the room.
Have I mentioned that I need to watch my language around my children? That or teach them how to do it better.
