Thumbs Up


The thumb. Standard-issue parts on most people's hands. Gratefully, both of our kids were born with both of their thumbs. Having lived in Idaho, I feel a compulsion to say, I hope they live their entire lives with both of their thumbs intact.

Not sure how it happened, but they both use their thumbs to communicate. All I have to say is, "You good?" This to mean, "You need anything?" They reply with thumbs. And funny little thumbs they have. That's my genetic liability. Ironically they don't use their thumbs in the traditional way that most humans do. They prefer their toes for those tasks. It's freaky. And that -- my friends -- is NOT from me.



PS -- I know, it's not Halloween. But along with thumbs, costumes are still standard-issue at our house.

Your boys have such imaginations. That can only be spurred by a super creative and fun mom. By the way, Chance can't quit talking about you and your super sewing skillz. She may have a new best friend. I hadn't heard from her in the past two days, because she was at your house. I've been demoted. Heh.
