One of Sam’s favorite phrases used to be, “I can’t do it – it’s hard.” Now one of her favorite phrases is, “I can do it – it’s easy!”

It was bedtime and Sammy and I were making up songs. Silly rhymes with funny tunes – anything to get a laugh. I was being very creative but Sammy just kept making up songs about pee and poo and it was getting old. “Can’t you make up a song about something other than pee and poo?” I asked.
“Hmmm, how about a song about Jinxy?” she asked.
I was thrilled. She hadn’t talked about Jinx much since we put him to sleep a few weeks ago, and I thought her feelings might come out in her song. I’m paraphrasing, but it went something like this:
Oh, I had a cat and his name was Jinx.
And he was cute and beautiful.
And he got a shot and it made him sleepy.
And then he got another and it made him dead.
We had to put Jinx to sleep because…
He peed and pooed in the house!
Now who is the creative one?
Sam injured her toenail and the whole thing was peeling away, so Adam had to cut it off. Sam sat patiently through the whole procedure, and when Adam gave her the toenail to look at, she asked if she could put it under her pillow for the toenail fairy.
