Youngest Child

I just came across these gems...

I don't even feel bad, because he's still the Faj Mahal's favorite!

True Love.

{Just clipping Kimi's toenails for her really early in the morning on her wedding day while she did her hair. Allison painted her toenails in that same position - except she looked more graceful than me. As always. Whatever, I'd do anything for Kimi any day and I don't have a feet phobia like most of my friends so it totally worked out.}

My fam dam.

Lars: age 9. Cries if you say "damn" or "sex" in front of him. (Just as it should be!) NIELS.{PS: Want to hear a funny story? The other day, Niels, the Faj, and I were in my bedroom talking. Lars comes in with a little piece of paper, and hands it to my dad saying, "Here, Dad, I wrote my poem." My dad reads it and it is really good - too good. So my dad says, "Lars, did you write this?" Lars: "Yeah!" Dad: "Oh, did you like get the idea from another book or something?" Lars: "No! I wrote it myself!" {Starts crying and runs out of the room.} Niels and I are cracking up, and we all run upstairs after him. He's in his bedroom, with the poem shredded to pieces in his garbage can and he's saying, "Fine! I copied it out of a book because writing a poem is too hard!" The next morning, as Lars and I were getting ready for school, he said to me, "Well, it's like, my teacher never said we couldn't copy a poem. He just said to write one. Ya know what I mean?" Yep, Lars, I totally get it.}

Finn: age 13. Obsessed with skate boarding. Still hugs me and tells me he loves me. Recently wrote an autobiography for school, in which he described Kai as having gages and a chipped tooth, and then wrote that Kai and I look the same. Thanks, Finn. Also wrote that his father is a slightly balding man, who is going through his mid-life crisis. Hah!

Niels: age 17. Always yells the word "damn" to make Lars cry. {example: "I just want some DAMN lemonade!" Very rude.) Niels always redeems himself when he does something rude by hugging and kissing the person, practically forcing them to love him. He really is great though. And hilarious.

Kai: age 19. Has gages. Could be my twin. Miss him tons because he's grown up and busy with friends - you know how that goes. I can't even judge - I'm a little too attached. It's embarrassing sometimes.

Me: age 22. Can't make decisions.
