So Missy; do you think you smell like roses in the morning?


The morning of the two year anniversary of Katie's "forever day" started out like every other day. We were summoned by the dynamic duo into their room in their usual "too boisterous for the morning" manner. We walked in and started our usual routine of taking Ethan to the potty and diaper changing for Katie. We usually just go in and get them going before we get ready in the morning (translation: we have not brushed our teeth yet)

I usually attend to Miss Starr while Marc attends to the Mischief Man as we dress them and get them ready to start their day. On this particular morning, while Ethan was sitting on the throne, I decided to use those couple of quiet moments to talk to Katie about what a wonderful day this anniversary was and how happy we were that we were her mommy and daddy and that she was our daughter. I was talking to her soothingly and had my face very close to her face. She was looking at me very intensly.......then.......suddenly she screwed up her face in an absolutely horrified manner. I said "Katie; what is wrong? I feared that I had upset her by talking about the day we met her for the first time. She looked at me and with absolute disgust in her voice said "Peeeew Mommy!!!" "Your nose stinks!!!!!"

Bwahahaha!!

Now, do you think that a daughter should tell her mother that said mother has morning breath on the morning after that said mother stayed up until 1:00 am writing an ode to said daughter in honor of said daughter and her "forever day" anniversary on her blog? I think not!!

Altoid anyone?
