Wise Words

Have I mentioned how much I love my niece, Pita? I think I might have mentioned her a time or two.

She brings such joy to my life. And she is so wise.

Take Sunday for example.

After church, Prima Ballerina went to Wendy's to grab some lunch and then bring the girls to my house for a visit. Between Wendy's and my house (a trip of maybe 4-5 miles) the following happened.

1. AB spilled an entire bag of Goldfish crackers in the floorboard. To which Prima Ballerina responded - "GAH!! Be more careful, AB!!"

2. Pita dropped her cup and as it hit the floorboard, the lid popped off - spilling everything. To which Prima Ballerina responded - "GAH!! BE MORE CAREFUL, PITA!!"

3. As they pulled into my driveway, Prima Ballerina's cup tipped over. The lid popped off and all the Coke spilled into the floorboard. To which Prima Ballerina responded, "GAH!! @$%#&#*@$!!!"

And then Pita, in all her wisdom, responded - "It's OK, Mommy! Everybody makes mistakes."

I think if I could remember her wisdom in 2010, it would be a much better year.
