Natalie always makes me laugh. She says the silliest things. She asks the most personal questions. Little kids can be brutally honest. They also like to comfort us when we are having a rough day.
This week Natalie said, "I'm a boy!" My husband looked at her and said, "Do you have something in your pants?" We all started laughing because we knew exactly that she put something in her pants. It was a big bouncy ball.
About a year ago I was on the phone with the executive director and some other foster parents for a conference call. Natalie asked me who I was talking to. I whispered, "Amelia." Natalie said, "Does she have balls or a gina?" I nearly died. I tried shooing her out of the room and she just asked louder the same question. I don't know if anyone heard or not, but I was so embarrassed! It makes a pretty good story though.
