My sister and brother-in-law headed home to Tennessee after a fabulous visit.
Maybe I won’t ever show you my brother-in-law’s face. Kind of like Maris Crane, Niles Crane’s first wife from “Frasier.” To this day, I still want to know what that woman looked like.
Doesn’t that kind of thing make you just nuts? No? Oh.
I think my favorite moment of my sister’s visit was a cab ride on Sunday.
Summer pooped just as we were hailing a cab home in the frigid rain and I was definitely waiting to change her. So we are sitting in the taxi and suddenly the driver starts madly spraying air freshener.
My kid smells so bad that I offended a cab driver?! I mean, these guys don’t always have the most incredible personal hygiene themselves. Plus, they have drunk bachelorettes puking in their backseats every weekend. How sensitive to smells could they possibly be?
Poor little stinky Summer.
One final question for you all. Would you let your daughter wear these shoes in public?
These are Dylan’s absolute favorite shoes and Old Navy has run out of her size.
It’s kind of embarrassing, right?
Of course, this photo was taken this morning so I haven’t ripped, I mean bribed, them off her feet yet.
