(While I realize it has been FAR too long since we posted a blog, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to post our conversation today. I promise, we will write a longer update this week.)
This afternoon, Minou, our upstairs neighbor girl was outside playing in the yard so I went out to say hi to her and ask how school went.
Minou: Auntie Mollie, where is Uncle Shaun?
Mollie: Inside, he is working.
Minou: Where is Uncle? I need him. Can you go get him?
*As she walks away to get her can that she usually keeps her grasshoppers in.
Shaun: Minou, what do you need help with?
Minou: Uncle, I need you to catch me a bird, look, I made him a nest already.
I love that she thinks her American uncle will catch her a bird to put in the nest she already made in her jar. I love being an Auntie to these Cameroonian kiddos.
