warning: the word "boogers" is in this post

So we have a 4-year old, adorable, 100% boy, sweetheart little nephew named Cooper.  (That's him above with his dog, Molly, at our church's blessing of the animals service.)  Our two precious 9-month old nieces are his twin baby sisters.  All just too cute.  Well this Sunday Justin and I sat down next to Cooper in church.  We asked him where his mommy was (Justin's sister).  Not really giving it any thought or time to respond, he quickly explained:

"I told her to stay home with my girls because they had boogers in their noses."

We laughed out loud.  Hilarious for so many reasons.  One, he "told" his mommy to stay home.  Two, "his" girls had boogers in their noses.  And three, who other than a 4-year old would say something as hilarious as this? Love that cutie!

Pin It!
