Bats in the Cave

UPDATE: Congratulations to Goosegirl who won my adoption t-shirt giveaway! Come back later today & see what's up for grabs in my next drawing!!!!

Now that we are in our 5th week of school, the morning routine at our house is just that - routine. We have everything down to a science. I'm the first one up & ready. Before leaving for work, I go in Zoe's room, tell her bye, & give her lots of kisses.

However, this week Zoe has thrown a loop in the routine. She decided that she wanted me to actually wake her up before I left instead of just kissing her bye. So, that's what I've been doing. After waking, she usually moves to the living room to watch cartoons with one eye open as she decides if she really wants to watch tv or go back to sleep. The other morning though she decided she wanted me to fix her hair.

As Zoe is standing on her stool facing the bathroom mirror & I am combing her hair, Paul comes into the bathroom & starts looking at himself in the mirror. He's acting somewhat silly, but yet, is also very serious.

Out of the blue Zoe says - "There's no bats in the cave."

Paul & I look at each other like what did she say & what does that mean?

Zoe says again - "There's no bats in the cave."

Again, Paul & I are stumped. I then say - "Zoe, what are you talking about? What do you mean?"

She then says as serious as can be - "Daddy doesn't have any boogers in his nose!"

So, there you go. Next time you're looking at yourself in the mirror, be sure to see if you have any Bats in the Cave!

Hilarious! And I learned something new as well. Haahaa!

Thank you for the shirt! I am so grateful! And this is very interesting because dh and I feel that we have a son waiting out there, most likely in Africa.
