HOW TO SAVE A LIFE

"Santiago?"

"Santiago?!"

"SANTIAGO!!!"

"Yes, Saia, what is it?" he finally replies.

"I'm going to tell you something that is very very very important, okay?" she asks.

"Okay???" she repeats.

"OKAY?!?!?" she yells.

"Okay, Saia." He's the Marquis de Sade sometimes, I tell you!

"You should definitely never never never step in front of a car," she begins. "And you should never never never walk in the street without holding Mama's hand," she continues -- beginning to wag her finger a little now. "And you should never never never run in a parking lot. And you should..."

"Saia?" he interrupts.

"And you should never..." she continues.

"SAIA!?!?!?" Second attempt.

"I wasn't done, Santiago."

"But I have something VERY important to add," he says.

[Exasperated sigh] "Alright, Santiago, what is it?" she concedes.

"You should never never never go near a skunk."

That is a great story.
Such a little mommy your Saia is.
That is hillarious that he would add to not go by a skunk. They sound very smart.

Laugh now, Sonya, but I bet you'll never walk near a skunk!

:P

Nope.. won't walk near a skunk! :)

I'm only laughing because I know how our two girls interact with each other and with that I can imagine how your two interact with each other.

This is one of the things I love about having twins.
