Kate + Mary

Alice just sent me this picture she took when I went over the other day.
Thank goodness for nieces.
I love fat little squishable baby ones who let you hold them until they fall asleep,
and cute little girl ones who want to do everything with you,
jump on you when you're not paying attention to them,
and cuddle with blankies on your lap.
I love how the first kind turn into the second kind.
{But what comes next?}


  1. little shopping buddies who call you with the latest hit songs and movies you should go see together... (in answer to what comes next) fun times

  2. teenagers who wish you were dead.

  3. Mom, I think teenagers only wish you're dead when you're their mother, not when you're their awesome aunt.
