I was showing Milly my nails today (I did them after she went to bed last night) and she grabbed my fingers to do "this little piggy" with them. But this is how her version went:
This little piggy went to Target 
This little piggy went home
This little piggy had Starbucks
This little piggy had none
This little piggy cried wee wee wee all the way home.

My child. No doubt.

Conversation in the car:
Milly: There's the house with the rat in the window well
Me: Was it dead?
Cora: Yeah we could see it's face
Milly: Yeah it was dead so it can't kill us. 
Cora: Well, Milly, rats can't kill us. They're not poisonous. Now rattlesnakes are poisonous. That's why we don't go into the rainforest. Rattlesnakes live in the rainforest. 
Milly: I think there's a family of rattlesnakes in our attic but I'm not sure. 

SLG was having a think when I tucked her in. She said "Mom - I don't really like being alone anymore. If I get scared, can I come in your room?" I said "Well first, just holler for me - you know I have this camera in your room so I can always know if you need me." She agreed and went off to bed. A bit later I heard something in her room so turned on the camera and saw her sitting up. I said "Everything ok sweetheart?" She said "Yeah mom - just getting a drink of water." I said "Ok. ... You know I'm always with you, right?" She answered "Yes, because you're my mom! Love you mom. Goodnight." heart emoticon My heart is full.
