This is also us at the fireworks. Corina appears to have gained fifty pounds just for this picture. We got home past midnight. We were all starving, so we made hot dogs. Corina insisted she could eat two, although she normally eats almost one. I made her two anyway. When she stopped eating before the first one was done, I said, "I know a little girl whose eyes are bigger than her tummy!"
Max and Corina both looked confused and said, "Pardon?"
I repeated myself, and both of them got such shocked looks on their faces. Max said, "Really???" and Corina just looked like she might faint. They had no idea what I was talking about, and thought I knew a little girl whose eyes were literally bigger than her tummy. They were amazed. I laughed and laughed and laughed at them, and finally told them it's just a silly expression old people use. I asked if they could guess what it means.
Max seemed to have figured it out, and said, "Oh, it just means they have big eyes."
I started laughing at him again, and he said, "Tiny eyes?.... A tiny tummy?.... Eyes on their tummy?.... They go wide-eyed? .... Is it Corina?.... Is it one of the kids in your Nursery?"
I love that story. It's my favourite.
And on a different topic - I gave Corina a present for passing kindergarten. It's Kate from Lost. She loved it, if you can't tell. When she got her out of the box, she breathed, "I've never touched Kate before."And here's a great picture Max took of me after the fireworks last night. I was doing Canada Day Karate.
