Naked quote of the evening:

"Sorry I pooped on the rug.  I started to hop and it just turded out."
Fin is running around naked before her bath and I remarked that she has her father's posterior. 

"Dad, what does your butt look like?"

"Apparently, it looks like yours."

"Except hairier?"

Me:  What makes someone a good momma?

Fin:  Loving their child and wanting to take care of it.

Me:  Anything else?

Fin:  Nope. That's it. 

Our Howard is a black Chihuahua who is very long (longer than his breed should be) in the body. 

This morning Fin casually observed, "How, you look like a hot dog. A little black, burned up hot dog."
I am nagging Finley to finish her dinner so I can give her her medicine. 

ME [hollering from other room]:  Are you eating in there?

FIN:  Dang. Outsmarted by an old woman. 

ME:  I certainly hope you are not referring to me.

FIN:  ...never mind!
Apparently we have reached the age in which Momma singing Busy A Move and, you know, busting a little move causes my kid to roll her eyes, heave a huge sigh and leave the room. 

I can't wait till the next time we're in a crowded public place together. 
This morning Fin made it clear I wasn't being gentle enough as I fixed her hair. 

"OW!  Mom!  I'm about to breathe fire over here!"

Find it ironic that I fell down a rabbit hole this morning of researching colleges for my 5.5 year old when she's home sick from pre-k for about the 247th time this year.
