Not To Be Trusted With Knives

{June 27, 2008}   Blogger’s Block

Conversation earlier tonight:

My sister:  I’m tired.

Me:            Me too.  But I need to blog something.

My sister:  What are you going to blog about?

Me:            I don’t know.

My sister:  You could blog about how awesome our backyard is.
               Or how about the delicious Thai dinner we had tonight.
               What are you going to blog about?
               You could blog about how you don’t like veggie food items that pretend to be meat.
               Hey, how about how peaceful our backyard is?

I can’t blog under this kind of pressure!

Oh wait, but I do have to tell you about my niece, who I may not have mentioned is the coolest kid ever.  Last night I went out for dinner with my friend Jen in the Po Cred and by the time I got back to my sister’s place, everyone was already asleep.  Including my niece, who was asleep in my bed.  Apparently she had declared “I’m sleeping in Aunt Beth’s bed tonight” and, because it’s too hot to wear pajamas, “I just want to sleep with my body on.” She cracks me up.

I woke up in the morning and she was staring right at me, about an inch from my face.  “Good morning Aunt Beth!  I slept in your bed!”  Too. Freaking. Cute!

That’s awesome. I am having blogger’s block too. And a weekend away from computers, hopefully. 😀

Nieces are adorable, and yours is totally awesome!

Stacia says:

I love sleeping with my body on!!! I hope my kid’s as cute as your niece!

Sarah says:

Though I never slept naked in her bed, the ‘staring directly at her until she awoke, then crying out “Good Morning!!!” ‘ was EXACTLY how I used to wake up my Aunt Pat when I was Madeleine’s age. I am surprised that she still talks to me!! 🙂
