Because guess what?!?

That's Carmen's new catch phrase. She weaves it into every conversation and it is simply adorable. "Mama can I have some milk, because guess what? I am SO thirsty!" or as we heard on Christmas Day, "Mama I don't feel good, because guess what? My ears hurt!" Yep, Mama Mer brought her to the pediatrician's office on Christmas Day -- raging double ear infections, followed by a junky cough which turned out to be a lower lobe pneumonia. 2013 is really starting out with a bang for poor Carmen. Luckily, she remains one of the most cheerful kiddos on the block... and she really loves school, to wit:

Here's a history lesson as seen through the 4 yr old lens:

C: "We learned about Dr. King today."

Me: "What did you learn?"

C: "He had a great idea!"

Me: "Heh, and what idea was that?"

C: "That people who like broccoli and people who don't like broccoli can still be friends."

Yep, that pretty much sums up Martin Luther's dream in a nutshell.
