so you wondered ... (or maybe you didn't) ...

what my husband told stella when she asked the question ...

what is a cigarette daddy?

his response?

it's a kind of plant (kinda like lettuce) that people roll up into paper and light on fire to smoke.

can you imagine the visual in her head?

i'm thinking that pointing out the window at the fully-leathered up guy on the motorcycle with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and just saying ... that's a cigarette ... would have been better.

Daddy's crack me up! Our Daddy was trying to explain outer space to our 2 two year olds the other day. I just keep hearing them say...Ohhhhhh!

I agree with YOU! Daddy made it sound so innocent. If you ask my boy what a cigarette is he will tell you it is something that people smoke and it makes their lungs black and it can make them get cancer and die!

Plants are way to pleasant sounding.

For some reason, I cannot locate your email address, despite many lovely comments left by you on my little blog. I wanted to invite you to be a guest poster when I'm recovering from cranking out number four. Let me know if you're interested. I know you've been super swamped lately, and I will totally not be offended if you decline.

Also? I would like to state for the record that I have tried to follow your blog a number of times and blogger always eats me and I cannot figure it out. Stinky blogger. I will keep trying, though.

Hope you're well.
