My name is Lauren, and I live in the bubble. I am wife to Marshall, the biggest BYU fan in the world; and mother to Carly, our big girl, and Wes, our wild man, and Calvin, our new addition. I graduated BYU with a degree in Social Work, and I went forth to serve at LDS Family Services. I like scrapbooking and going out to eat at nice restaurants. I am fascinated by new cleaning products at the grocery store, so I have to shop in wide circles around the perimeter to avoid the temptation to buy. I love chocolate.

"I yub you yeg"

This is what Carly said to me this morning as she gave me a hug around the knee. She has lately began telling us she loves us without prompting, which has been really fun. She even told Russ's cats she loved them.

But this confession of love confused me a little.

I asked her "what did you say, Carly?"
"I yub you yeg!" another big hug.
"I love you too honey," thinking she was just saying she loved me.
Indignant, Carly said "No, yub yeg," hitting my knee.
"Ooooh, you love my leg?"
Smiles. "Uh huh. I yub you yeg." Another big hug around my knee, then she walked away.

I think I feel complimented.

Oh my goodness that made laugh. I love hearing the things little kids say. Especially kids that are the same age as Miley because I totally understand what they are saying. This gave me a good belly laugh.
