We just returned from ten days at our family’s lake cabin near Spokane, Washington. We lived in our swimsuits while we were there, and as always when I am in the sun a number of freckles made their jolly appearance all over me. One night as I changed Elijah out of his swimsuit and into clothes before dinner, he pressed one of my freckles and told me: “Mommy, I take my freckles off.”
“Really?” I asked. “When do you take them off, Elijah?”
“Where do you put them?”
“On the floor.”
Seems as good a place to keep them as any!
