sitting on the couch in the family room and looking at the point where the
wall meets the ceiling.

with a sigh says, "mom, i wish our house were symmetrical."

we were sitting in church and bailey was saying something about being the older
sister. after a while alex started laughing. i asked him to be quiet. he kept giggling
and i told him this wasn't the place for it.

a: 'but, mom. i just thought of something.'
me: 'ok, what?'
a: 'bailey will be an old woman before i am!' laughing
me: (sarcastically) alex, you will never be an old woman.
a: no, i mean she will be an old woman before i am an old man.

i had to giggle too. he no doubt was envisioning bailey all hunched over in a shawl
with wrinkles and gray hair.

I can't stop laughing either!! Alex always cracks me up!! And picturing Bailey old and gray with a shawl!!! (it's the shawl part that cracks me up!!)

mental note: give that shawl to D.I.

I love the things that your kids say. They are so hilarious! And I, too, can picture Bailey all old and gray with wrinkles. Except she will still be telling people off about something, because after all, she is The Older Sister.
