Addie makes adorable speech mistakes. Yesterday, she was walking around, pointing at various items and places, declaring, "Dat lucky." From the crusty bean pot on the stove to the messy space in front of the heater to her own diaper that missed the trash bag to the candy wrappers left over from the gingerbread house (She seems to be kind of a neat-nick). Took me a minute to realize that what she really meant, of course, was, "yucky."
Then I was tired and stretched out on the couch with her. Then I was feeling all anecdotal and spiritual and thought that those things really are lucky for us:
We're lucky to have a huge crock pot of beans to keep us full and healthy;
We're lucky to have space for stuff to get strewn about and messed;
We're lucky to have enzymes to help her digest her food and keep her plumbing in order.
We're lucky to have extra money for something as frivolous and marvelous as a candy-coated gingerbread house.
Have a yucky, lucky week, friends!
