Not Sure How to Title This One

When the girls were little they would always wake up before I would. I'm not sure if it was because I worked swing shift, or I was just so exhausted from taking care of them. My kids tend to be quite lively and high-maintenance.

Anyway, one morning when Ally was about 2 years old, she woke me up. I told her I wanted to stay in bed for just a little longer.

After a minute, I started thinking it seemed awfully quiet. I asked her to go see what Morgan was doing, mostly to buy myself a little more time.

Ally walked over to the couch in my bedroom, where Morgan was sitting quietly and reported, "Morgan is picking the nose."

I looked over and, sure enough, Ally was right.

That is the longest sentence I had ever heard Ally say at that age.
