The Things They Say
A couple of days before Jack was born, Claire came to me and very seriously said, "So Mommy, are we going to have to put this baby in a manger?"
So of course, at the hospital, Baby Jack's crib was "the manger."
This is probably going to embarrass everyone involved someday, but it's too funny not to share.
I guess I never mentioned to Mary Grace that there's a way to tell the difference between boys and girls that has nothing to do with hair style or color preference. We were changing Jack's diaper yesterday and she said, "Baby has a stick coming out of his bottom!"
"Yes," I said, "That's his penis. That's where his pee comes out. That's how we know he's a boy."
She ran out into the dining room where Uncle Chuck, Aunt Mimi and Grandpa Bob were, and said, "Baby Jack has a peanut!!!"
