Mahina: Hi how are you?
Me: Good how are you?
Mahina: Good.... I was just calling to tell you that the baby (Kawena) has a cracker in between her toes and is eating it...
Pause waiting for that statement to register in my brain.....
Me: what? really?!?!
Mahina: uh huh
Mahina: We asked her where she learned that and she said Malia
Me: She actually said Malia??
Mahina: Well she said "Lia"
Me: Hahaha!!! That's awesome!!!
Mahina: Yeah so mitch wanted me to call and tell you thanks and that we were thinking about you.
Me: What a great influence I am!
Mahina: I know.
Blah Blah Blah.... Good Bye Dialogue.....
Needless to say I was cracking up about that one.... but just to clarify, I DO NOT eat crackers from between my toes! Don't you wish I was around your kids teaching them all sorts of goodness like that?!?!
When I was in Oregon, at some point while I was there (maybe a couple of times) I was holding Kawena and if she dropped her blanket or a stuffed animal or something, I would grab it with my toes and bring it up to my hand so I wouldn't have to bend down to get it. Kawena being the extremely bright and impressionable young thing apparently picked up that little skill... I saw her pick up her blanket with her toes once while I was still there. I was so proud! I guess I forgot to tell her that we shouldn't pick up our food that way!
