lanna says


i asked lanna last night if she was interested in painting the basement with me last night. she was super excited and grabbed her brush right away. nathan and i found a great color on the clearance shelf in home depot for $5. my favorite kind. the color on the lid looks like when you first stir your chocolate into the milk. "chocolate milk" is how i thought of it.


we open up the can and lanna says "oooooh, this is beige"

i said "how do you know what color beige is? that's a different color than what you are used to."


she says "i know beige, because it's boring."


"so, do you think the paint that we put up is boring"?


no. she says. it looks like hot cocoa (takes a mn to sniff the air...) "that smells like poop"


*the paint looks awesome. with the lighting, its a dusty purple.
*lanna knows about beige being boring from 'mr. knit knots' of the Imagination Movers.

HAHAHAHA! I had to chuckle out loud at this one. From the mouths of babes, huh? What a character you have on your hands. I wonder what she'd think of my mocha colored living room? Hopefully it doesn't smell like hot chocolate poop. ;)
