September 7, 2012 | My Jottings

My middle daughter Carolyn and and her husband Jeremy have four children, and Audrey Elizabeth is their youngest. She is 4 1/2 and I always say she’s a little sparkler, because life and cheer and energy and joy beam out of her almost at all times. She is a force to be reckoned with. She also shows her love very demonstratively with excited squeals, long, strong hugs and huge smiles.

A couple of days ago Carolyn texted me about Audrey, and here’s the conversation:

I hope you’re chuckling, because I certainly was, and am. Audrey is a happy little girl who makes me happy. Just being with her cheers me up.

Now I ask you.

Do your grandchildren like your bottom?

    I remember a comment made by my then 3 year old niece as she was cautiously holding herself over the opening of the “big potty”.

    “When I’m a grown-up I’ll have a nice big butt like you, and then I won’t ever have to worry about falling in the toilet.”

  2. Just Julie says:

    Sue, I hope you don’t mind me saying that I laughed out loud really heartily on this one. There is no danger of me ever falling into the toilet either. I have heard and love the term “bosom buddies”….do you think there could ever be such a thing as “bottom buddies”? :O xxoo

  3. Ember says:

    It is SUCH a comfort to know that all danger of falling down the toilet has been . . . er . . . left behind.

  4. Helen in Switzerland says:

    My children say very rude things about my bottom, now you come to mention it 🙁

  5. Just Julie says:

    Helen…I cannot imagine that. Why would they do that to a mom as fit and trim as you? Tell them your friend Julie in Minnesota says to stop it. 😉

    Ember…I think you should consider writing for your vocation. xxoo

  6. Jeremy says:

    She was totally serious about it too. Not silly, not goofy. That’s what she likes, but not all she likes about you.
    Thanks for loving them so much!

  7. Just Julie says:

    Thank you Jeremy! That’s an amazing little girl you’re raising. 🙂
