Out of the mouths of babes

Josh and I went over to my brother (hi ugly) and sister-in-law's yesterday for a Channukah get-together. It was a really nice lunch that they put together, latkes which he made from scratch, egg, tuna, lox and cream cheese, etc.

After lunch we exchanged gifts, they gave me a soap dispenser in the shape of a dreidel which looks *really* neat, a couple coffee mugs, and two shadow boxes. The first one had a Chinese fan in it, and the other had a red Chinese jacket. They're really excited about the adoption, but wish things would hurry up already.

Amen.

I talked to them about the new restrictions that are coming in and their eyes bugged out in disbelief at a lot of them, but I digress.

As we were leaving, my mom was talking about how she has been in Toronto for 43 years. My nephew, Z, turned to my mom and said "Bubbie, you're wrong!" My mom said "What do you mean, Z?" He said "You couldn't have been here 43 years, you're only 40!"

His logic is, of course, that since my brother is 39, she can't *possibly* be any older than 40. Next time I'm over I should ask him how old I am...

I love the logic of little kids!

I also like your "hi ugly" comment--I'm guessing that's directed at your brother. Sounds like something me and my bro would do:)
