Not to be out-done, Lily stuck around for four questions.

1. What is something mom always says to you? "pink"
2. What makes your mom happy? points to self (she's right, she does make me happy)
3. What makes mom sad? pink
4. How does your mom make you laugh? walk juice

She then turned around and ran away laughing maniacally.

Lily tried to burn the house down today. I should have taken pictures of the fire truck and the firemen that came to see if the wall was going to suddenly burst into flames. Unfortunately I was more concerned about the fact that three strangers were in my house, in the girls' room and the beds were not made and there was junk all over the floor. ACK! Darn.


I had put the little bugger down for a nap. About 20 minutes later we hear her crying from her room. We were just across the hall in the sewing room. Ella goes in to see why Lily is crying and Lily is standing at the socket where the night light is. The socket and night light are black and there is a bracelet broken and burned on the floor. There are a few black marks on Lily's finger. Don't worry, it was just surface. She did get a shock but the black soot just wiped off her finger. She's fine.
What happened was that the night light was not stuck all the way in the wall. It is very possible that Lily herself pulled it out and then tried to put it back in or something like that. Lily goes into Ella's "treasure box" and gets out her bracelet and then drapes the bracelet over the exposed prongs of the night light. The prongs are hot and create and arch..arc?...of electricity, scaring the living daylights out of Lily and shocking her some. The firemen said that the bracelet acted sort of like a circuit breaker or fuse and that's why the circuit breaker itself didn't go off...or whatever circuit breakers do to break the circuit.
The funny thing is that this isn't the first time that Lily has been playing with the light socket and gotten a shock. No more night lights in the kids' room.

Lily, Lily, Lily. When will you learn your lesson?

How cute that she wanted to answer, too! And I cannot believe she had such a shocking experience! You are going to have to watch that one! Maybe she is going to be a mad scientist one day!
