U is for Umbilical Cord

I almost forgot about blogging today, and of course it had to be the day with the letter U.

So I will just tell you about a little trick I like to play.

When our second daughter was born her little cord stub fell off one day while we were out.  I didn't know what to do with it, so I put it in a small zippered pocket in my purse and forgot about it.  I like to change purses quite a bit so I didn't run across the little thing for awhile.  And when I finally did I decided to just leave it in there for some reason.

So occasionally like once a year or so when I use that purse I like to find that little stub which is of course all petrified like a little rock now and put it into Dennis' hand to watch his reaction.  Really, it's the reaction that compels me to place it back into the zippered pocket for next time.

:) Glad y'all enjoyed (are enjoying) it! I can't wait to get back to Canada to find that purse again. I think it might just be in your attic, Ron and Sabrina!

This is gross, but so sweet. :-) We lived in Italy and Germany and it's quite an adventure adjusting to and understanding the oddities/cool things of other cultures. How great that you have young ones who will adapt and explore with less hesitancy.
