Good gravy. WHY must Savana take everything I say to her and use it in conversation as much as she possibly can??
She said to me the other day that butts, penises and vaginas are gross and disgusting because poop and pee comes out of them. I said to her that I actually think every part of my body is beautiful because every little part of it has a job to do and they all work together in this amazing way so that I can be alive and healthy.
So today her and Kai are using the potty together, one right after the other as they often do and she says, "Kai, your penis and your butt are beautiful."
Then she comes out to the rest of the class and says, "Everyone! Your butt is beautiful, just like your face and your brain. You might think it's gross. It's not. Butts, penises and vaginas are ALL beautiful!"
Savana cracks me up.
LOL Bridget! Mia likes to talk loudly about my boobs in public. Fun times.
Kate - I'm sorry about the lame play date. I can't stand it when people do that. It's so uncomfortable.
"God willing" makes me sick. Like oh, if I piss God off this baby won't be born healthy, right? What I'd really like to know is in their eyes, do they REALLY think I must've done something wrong to deserve the death of my firstborn? Crazies, the lot of 'em.
Good luck finding energy, Chrissy. It seems to have evaded me as well!
I confess I joined a book club and am so very excited about it! Social interaction! With adults! Yippee!
Others just think our faith and prayers don't always help, and sometimes bad things have to happen. Like when Christ was on the cross and finished his pray saying "never the less thy will be done."

My aunt was on the phone with her best friend, who was driving drunk and using a cell phone, when she crashed and died. My aunt seriously believes God took her because the family is cursed and she is not meant to have a close friend. It's been 11 years...maybe 12 now, and she still believes the sole reason her friend died was because she was friends with her.
Religion messes people up something fierce. In every other way, my aunt is sane. It boggles my mind that she thinks that.
That's sad, Chrissy. I hate that she's living with guilt over an accident.
