Weekend Funnies

Nash's Natter:

Nash woke up early this morning and since it was Jeff's sleep in day, I went back to bed in the spare bedroom with him. Nash leans over and puts his nose close to my open mouth....and says

"Breath Poop".

Yes, morning breath is lovely eh?


My wonderful neighbor (who has her house up For Sale By Owner and I am SO sad) told me a little funny. Her daughter is 9 and was recently diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome. Another neighborhood gal came over to their house and asked if she was going to school soon. Her mom (my neighbor) told her that her daughter was doing better, and that she has irritable bowel syndrome. Her daughters friends response?

She has Down syndrome too!?!?!?!

I guess Nash's Down syndrome is contagious.
