The pink wall.





Jane sleeps next to a wall.
A pink wall.
Her bed snugs right up against the pink wall.

Today I was changing sheets and comforters on Jane's bed.
And then I looked.
Her pink wall was dotted with green spots.
I got up closer.

They were boogers.
I was grossed out and disgusted.
I wasn't sure if I was mad or hysterical with laughter.

When I confronted Jane about them she without a beat said to me
"Mom, I put them up there and then count them and
that's how many kids I am going to have."



in other notes:
Mr. Nielson and I took our children to
Salt Lake Acting Company's performance of "Go, Dog. Go" by P.D. Eastman.
It was a fantastic, colorful, and fun play for kids of all ages.
If you are in the neighborhood, I highly recommend taking your kiddos to see it.
