Let's talk smells....

Today I was putting on my makeup in the bathroom and Jace comes in to potty. A few minutes pass and I say, "whoa, you stink!"

Her innocent reply, "No Mom! My body smells good...it's my butt that stinks."

LOL!!

Bren is out of character and not performing much this week. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer last week and Bren wanted to know the truth so I told her. And today her hero fell...Steve Irwin. She learned from him, loved him, and idolized him. He is the reason I have had to practically give CPR to all dying creatures around my house for the past several years. So between the death of her hero and having to face the mortality of her closest grandma...she is in need of prayers and thoughts. She asked me through tears if she could write a letter to Steve's family thanking him for teaching her...gulp...now how can I turn her down!

So sad. No little girl should be having to go through tough things like this so young.

Oh my!! How sweet of her to think of his family and writing them a letter.

Every time Bren sees an animal in need, she has a chance to keep her hero's memory alive by helping the animal. Let's all help her see this as a chance to give back to someone who is looking down from above.
