On the way home from church

Nolan: Mommy when can I get my ears peered?

Because his sister used the same word up until a few weeks ago, I knew he meant pierced.

Me: Oh I don't know. Maybe when you are thirty.

Scattered conversation about why at the age thirty he could get his ears pierced.

Me: Daddy doesn't have his ears pierced.

Nolan: When will he be old enough?

Me: Oh I don't know maybe when he is fifty. You'll be old enough too when you are fifty.

Nolan: Fifty?! I'd be dead then!


  1. I remember thinking 30 was old and 50 was ancient! Now thirty is young and 50 is just well-seasoned!

  2. Better get my wheelchair ready, then. I'm WAY further over the hill than I thought! :o)

  3. Kids are just too funny! Thanks for the laugh.

  4. Just explain to him exactly how ears are "peered." He'll drop the subject quick. ;)

  5. I have said it dozens of times, Oh Nolan, what will pop into that darling head of yours next? G and G

  6. He may be right - I'm SO much closer to 50 than 30 but it still looks kind of scary.
    We have no hope with the ear-piercing thing. I have 3 holes in each ear and the Mountain Man has his left ear pierced.

  7. What Does Little Birdie Say?


    What does little birdie say,
    In her nest at peep of day?
    Let me fly, says little birdie,
    Mother, let me fly away,
    Birdie, rest a little longer,

    Till the little wings are stronger.

    So she rests a little longer,

    Then she flies away.


    What does little baby say,
    In her bed at peep of day?

    Baby says, like little birdie,

    Let me rise and fly away.

    Baby, sleep a little longer,

    Till the little limbs are stronger.

    If she sleeps a little longer,

    Baby too shall fly away.
