Have... CHICKEN!

    More niece-sitting has been happening than I think has ever happened before! But that's as it should be. This heart defect was completely unforseen, and as such has been a major complicating factor in every aspect of my brother and his family's lives. So we help as much as we can. But... funny moments have come out of it. Here, Maddie is saying "Hi!" to her Uncle Matt, our best friend who is living and teaching English in Japan right now. She has been practicing saying "Domo Arigato," even though she thinks "Gato" is the same as saying cat in Spanish... which makes sense, kinda. And she thinks everyone everywhere should have chicken. With dip-dip. (Ranch.)
Have... CHICKEN!
