Out of the mouths of babes, right?

Talking to Adia on Sunday about what she learned in nursery (Sunday school for the 3 and under set):

Me: Adia, what did you learn about today?
Adia: Jesus DIED! (giggles)
Me: Oh. . .and then what happened?
Adia: They put him in a CAVE!
Me: Oh really?
Adia: And then they put a big rock in front of it. . .and then angels came, and Jesus was ALL GONE! (here her eyes go wide and she raises both hands, palms up, to emphasize the mystery).
Me: What happened next?
Adia: Jesus came back to life, and everyone was SO HAPPY!

There you go. Easter story in a nutshell.

(And yes, she really does use caps and exclamation points that often; trust me).

Maybe it's just me and my uptight Mormon thriftiness. . .

So, a while back I was browsing Craigslist, and there was a posting selling miscellaneous items. One of those "virtual garage sale" kind of listings.

This woman listed a pair of high heels that she described as having "never been walked in." I thought, Huh, that's odd; usually I see things described as "never been worn." She described them as black, with tall, narrow heels, ribbon ties. . . and mentioned that they had cost $50 at a local shop known for, um, intimate apparel and accessories.

So, "never been walked in" but NOT never been worn means . . . . OH. (Yeah, I'm quick, I know.)

First of all, ew. Second hand shoes? Maybe, depending on many factors. Second hand ANYTHING involved in that particular, um, activity? Ew.

And second. . .fifty bucks? Seriously? For THAT?

Okay. . .

Adia just came to me with her doll.

"Mom, my doll is hungry."
"Ok, why don't you feed her?"
Adia, yanking up her shirt and pointing to her chest,"I don't have any milk. See? No milk!"

I am NOT breastfeeding a doll.

(She decided to "feed" the doll anyway. . .she put the doll's face to her chest for two seconds and declared the doll full. If only, sweetheart, if only.)
