Now there’s a generous offer

This afternoon after surviving an arduous first-day-of-homeschool-after-a-10-day-vacation, I pulled out an activity that I’d brought on the trip but hadn’t gotten around to doing with the girls.   It was totally frou-frou:   a bunch of dollar-store fake fingernails.   The girls had a blast sticking on the nails, feeling ever-so-elegant.


As my 5 year old was flourishing her lovely nails grandly around, a new thought came to her.  “Hey,” she said to her 10 year old sister, “if you have anything waaay up inside your nose that you want to get out, I could get it for you!”

  1. Your girls are all so beautiful, and your new ones look really happy and settled – it’s lovely to see 🙂

  2. What a fun idea (the fingernails, not the nose thing)!

  3. Guess elegant ladies have that problem, too. 🙂

  4. LOL! That kid cracks me up!

  5. what a servant heart she is developing! 😉

  6. LOL!!! What a girl! She sounds like a hoot!

  7. Seriously laughing out loud here.

  8. Now that’s a helpful offer!!! LOL!

  9. My three year old son Acer likes to give me things that he picks up, off the floor or where ever else he finds something interesting. I am required to take it, say ‘thank you for’ and name the item. One day he walked up and handed me something I just couldn’t identify, after staring at it for a little while I just had to pause in the requisite phrase because I didn’t know what to say. So Acer prompted me with, ‘For the Booger!’ The joy of a three year old.

  10. How thoughtful!! Congrats on your book.
