Mother of the year, I am not...

The other day our whole family was sitting at the dinner table, and Lilla was being her usual, very goofy self. She was laughing and giggling about who knows what, and out of my, not so thoughtful, mouth comes, "Lilla, get off the crack!"

Lilla looks questionably at me and says, "I not on crack!"

I laughingly respond, "Lilla, do you know what crack is?" (Being not quite 3, it is highly doubtful!)

She barely bats an eye and says in her sing song way, "Humpty dumpty sat on a wall, humpty dumpty had a great fall!"

My word, I thought, how thankful I am for the eyes of innocence in my child, and how they give me a completely different perspective on a very jaded world.

Lamentations 3:22, 23 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

I'm with Deedra. I thought you meant what we call "baby butt crack." You remember this when she repeats it to you!
