I have been blessed (cursed) with very prominent veins that stick out on the top of my hands. Nurses love to stick me with needles because there are so many veins to pick from. When I put my hand down they get even bigger and stand out even more. The other night Madison was sitting on my lap and Adriana was sitting next to me. My hand was resting on the chair next to me, which caused my veins to really stick up. Adriana said, "Wow you have worms in your hands." Madison looked at my hands and immediately began to cry. She is so scared of worms. Adriana thought it was so funny she kept saying it. Madison jumped right off my lap and went to Jeff and she would not sit with me the rest of the night. I tried to convince her that I didn't have worms in my hands but she wouldn't believe me. She gives some amazing dirty looks and for the rest of the night I was the recipient of the mean looks.

Breakfast in Bed

I had a funny conversation the other morning with Madison that took me by surprise. This is how it went:

Madison: Hi mom
Me: Hi Madison, Are you hungry?
Madison: Yes. I think I want breakfast in bed.
Me: Really, what do you want to eat?
Madison: I'll have a taco.

It was so matter of fact and she knew exactly what it was that she wanted. So she enjoyed breakfast in bed while watching Dora.

Bunny Nose

Madison came inside the house yesterday and told me she had a "bunny" nose and needed it cleaned.

She also thinks a swimming suit is called a "swimming soup."

Yesterday while we were at church Madison said, "I want to talk my testimony." I was amazed that she knew what people were doing when they went up to the pulpit. She's one smart cookie

A couple weeks ago Madison had done something that made me a little upset and I must have had a frown on my face because she said, "Mom, smile you're making me sad."

New Body Part

This morning Harrison was limping around a little bit and so I asked him what was wrong. He said his leg hurt a little bit so I asked him where on his leg and he said his "knee pit." I wasn't sure I heard him right so I asked him again and sure enough he said "knee pit," which he went on to explain was the area behind his knee.
