Tougher Morgan Questions...

A few nights ago, Morgan came out with this whopper...

"So Mommy, since everyone says I look like you, does that mean I'm going to get cancer too?"

oh boy...that was a tough one...but it didn't prepare me for last night's question...

"Mommy, I know people die from cancer...so when are you going to die?"

OK - I bit my lip to keep from crying and explained that not everyone dies from cancer...and I am one of the lucky ones...I also told her that I fought very hard because I didn't want she and Avery to grow up without a Mommy...

so sorry teachers, but the girls got a "Mommy day" today, because sometimes I try anything to make up for the fact that my seven year old is faced with such mature issues...

and so for today, I'll go with this bit of wisdom...


fortunately our day was filled with laughs - and tonight we are piling into my bed for a "girls only" slumber party!  hope your day was filled with laughter too!
