Last night at dinner:

Cora:  Mommy - how old is Daddy?
Me:  He's 35
Cora:  And  you're what? 91 right?

Go to your room kid.

It's official. I've horrified my first child with a "when I was a kid..." story!  It went like this:

{Me in the bathroom getting ready for a neighborhood party}
Cora: It's a good thing I don't have to run downstairs - I gotta go to the bathroom right now! {goes to the bathroom}
Me:  Did you know when I was a little girl I only had one bathroom in my whole house?  So if someone was in there when I needed to go potty I just had to hold it!
Cora: {horrified}  WHAT?  Did you ever pee your pants?
Me:  I don't know - you'll have to ask Meme.  I don't ever remember doing that but I may have.
Cora:  Wow.  So what did you do if you were upstairs and had to go potty?
Me:  Our house only had one floor - all the rooms were on the first floor.
Cora:  WHAT??  How is that even possible?
Me: {laughs}  AND if someone was in the bathroom taking a bath when I needed to go, I had to wait for them to finish taking their WHOLE bath!
Cora:  I have no idea how you lived like that.

MUAhahahahahahaha. Now it has officially begun!

Cora is very excited about Valentine's Day coming up.  Tonight as I was tucking her in bed, she asked me:

"Mom, tomorrow night, when you come check on me, in the middle of the night, when I'm sleeping ... can you lean down and whisper in my ear "Happy Valentimes Cora!"
