In The Piggy Banks of My Mind


When my kids were young, there are certain funny things that they would say that always linger in my memory banks.  One of the funniest things that my son ever said to me was at a water park in Spring, Tx.  We had been climbing many stairs to go down slides of fun all day.  Later that afternoon, we were once again heading up another set of steps, when I slipped...my son was about 6 or so, and immediately commented, "Mommy be careful...you could slip, and you could fall, and you could get hurt, and YOU COULD DIE, and how would i get home?"....I laughed all the way down the slide!


They are all grown up now...

....but they never stop making me laugh and smile!
