Brain Pickles??

I wanted to write about how nice it is to have quality time with my children every night before bed.

Unless I'm too cranky or tired, we always have lights-out chitchat time together in bed between nine and nine-thirty. Sometimes the stories they tell are so wacky and funny. Last night out of nowhere my 8-yr-old DD started saying something about "brain pickles" and suddenly I was laughing so hard I could barely breathe. My 6-yr-old DS was so delighted by my laughter that he started kissing me repeatedly all over my face. All of us were laughing together. Then I brought it up again this morning, walking them to the bus stop: "OK let's cross the street, you brain-pickles!"....

Well anyway, have a great weekend everybody.
