A smelly girl
Maddi: "Mom, I want fruit for breakfast."
Me: "ok.... which fruit? We have bananas, cantaloupe, watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, grapes..."
Maddi: "GRAPES! No, wait. Well, yes. Well...."
Me: mildly intrigued by her argument with herself "Maddi, do you want grapes or not?"
Maddi: "I love their taste, but not their smell. They smell like pennies, but they taste sooooo gooooood"
This girl smells EVERYTHING. She smells the boxes when Grandma & Grandpa send packages because she says they smell like Grandma's house, she smells everything before she eats it, she sniffs people and toys, soaps and shoes, and the other day I even caught her smelling the phone charger before she handed it to me. She is so weird, but it's moments like these that I feel so blessed to be her mother. It is such a gift to spend every moment with her... to teach her, to cheer her on, and to giggle at her oddities. It's little moments like these that I love being a mother.
