Ordinary Days...

Some days in Lewis Land are ordinary (most, actually.) These ordinary days can sometimes be monotonous, frustrating and L-O-O-O-N-G.  But even those ordinary days are punctuated with wonderful moments that I want to remember.  Here are a few of those moments that make these ordinary days just so darn good...
The other day, Gianna was playing and singing.  We heard her singing "The Farmer in the Dell" and chuckled when she sang the second verse which is usually "The farmer takes a wife..."
Her version:  "The famer takes a shower...." 
Smart girl.
Gianna was contorting her body in order to more intently inspect her elbow.  She gasped.  "Mommy! Anovver belly button!"   I laughed.  "It DOES look like a belly button, Gianna, but it's called a dimple. Did you know you have dimples in your cheeks too?"  Her curiosity was piqued.  I brought her to the mirror and pointed to her cheeks. "Now smile, Gianna."  She did. She saw. She giggled.  Over and over and over.
The other night, I made quesadillas for supper.  Later on Iain put Gianna the bed and came back laughing.  He told me he asked Gianna for a kiss.  She gave him one....and proudly proclaimed it a "Kiss-a-dilla."

One day I'm going to miss these ordinary days.
