We use the phrase "naked as a jay bird" on occasion in our house. Yesterday after she went swimming, we found Abigail running around the living room naked singing over and over again, "Naked like blue jay. Naked like blue jay."
We had the unbelievable privilege today of meeting with an old friend who is now a nun. She was telling Sidge about the habit she wore. Sidge looked at me and said, "Mom, is her habit a bad habit?"
On the way home from visiting my friend Sister Joan of Arc, Sidge shouted "Look everyone! It's a giant pickle." When we all looked and didn't see one, he laughed and explained that his friend Noah, who came to visit the other day, taught him that. Noah must have also taught him what to say next. Sidge laughed and said, "Everyone falls into that." When I fell for it a second time he misused the expression again saying, "Mommy fell into it."
Sidge asked us in the car, "Is it kinda great to be us?"
