Jeff was recently contacted at work by a local business that had a fire. Apparently, some disgruntled employees (ex-employees now, I'm sure) went in, dismantled one of the video cameras (didn't know about the second one!), tried to disable the sprinklers, piled up papers in the office, and then set them on fire. The business was calling Jeff to get a quote on smoke removal (like the smell of the smoke). Anyway, Jeff came home and told us the story during dinner. I think I said something about how naughty it is to start fires.
Jill was quiet for a bit and then asked, "Were they naked?"
Jeff and I were quiet for a bit, and then I asked, "Did you just say 'were they naked'?"
She nodded yes. Jeff and I continued to stare at her.
Then she sort of sighed and explained, "naughty people are naked." (In a voice that implied this should have been very obvious to us.)
I love having an almost three year old in my house. Although perhaps I have been too strict on the naked rule. A toddler needs to have some fun, right?
On a more sober note . . .
My sister-in-law recently announced that she is expecting. I decided to try and share this information with Jill.
I said, "Jill, Aunt Rachel is going to have another baby."
Jill thought about it, looked at me, and asked, "baby Tabitha?"
I said, "No, Aunt Rachel already has a beautiful baby Tabitha. Remember?"
Jill then said, "Baby Tabitha is dead." She paused and then continued, "we still love her though."
It amazes me what Jill picks up on.
We do still love her.
And I am very excited for my brother, his wife, and my niece!
