I am the medium one

Ada and I were drawing lions. Reaching over to my paper, Ada adds some circles to my lion's face.  "I made cheeks for your lion," she says.

"Nice cheeks," I reply.

Drawing more, she adds, "and eyebrows."

"Oh, those are big eyebrows. Those are Bert eyebrows"


"Well, they are like Bert's. Bert has big eyebrows."

"Do you have big eyebrows?"

"Well, not that big. Papa has bigger eyebrows. But his face is bigger too."

"You have medium eyebrows. And a medium bottom."


  1. Nice. Ada's awesome, as usual.

    My cousin once told me, "You have a BIG butt. But you're a good driver."

  2. Well, that's just as the author of "Goldilocks & The Three Bears" intended it, right?

    Papa = large
    Mama = medium
    Baby = small

    See, order exists in the universe. :)

  3. Well, at least she told you you have a medium bottom instead of a big one. She is SUCH a smart girl! : )

  4. Wow. What I wouldn't give to have a medium bottom.

  5. I kind of want to ask you if you see a tall dark stranger in my future??

    Wishing you a sunny day and apple pie. thinking of you and the morrow, of course.

  6. I like how this post starts with nice cheeks and ends with a medium butt.
