I started this blog as a place to put the "mommy stuff" that just doesn't fit over on my other blog.

I became a first time mom at the age of 43 so this blog is written from *gasp* an older mom's perspective.

I love being a mom to the funniest little girl on the planet (check out the scroll over to the right ---> for some of her gems!) and I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures together!

Wordful Wednesday - "This is a Mickalet"

Topic of the week
To pay attention and be genuinely interested in understanding 
what the other person is thinking, feeling, wanting 
or what the message means.

Greetings!! I usually take part in Wordless Wednesdays but since the words that accompany this photo are even funnier then the photo themselves I thought I'd go with a Wordful Wednesday instead! I hope you enjoy!

After decorating a paper doll Sweet's came over to introduce her creation.

"This is a mickalet."  

Of course I asked, "What is a mickalet? "

Her reply, "A Mickalet is a pretend guy with a belly button.

Which prompted me to ask, "What is a pretend guy without a belly button called?

 "An orange."

Instead of a caption linky I'm using a straight up linky this week. If you are participating in Wordful or Wordless Wednesday you are invited to hook up!

Also, hop on over to Everyday Bliss where the WW Linky is also a Giveaway Entry!!!
