Cucumber soap and green toilet paper


Lulu and Tina came over to play this afternoon. Their favorite activity is going through Miriam's animal flashcards and saying the English and Arabic names.

During their visit, Lulu informed me that she needed to use the bathroom. When she came out, she had Tina smell her hands. Then I heard her whisper (in Arabic), "the soap smells like cucumbers!" And then even quieter, "and they have green toilet paper."

It's true. Our soap does smell like cucumbers. And in a strange twist of fate involving Jeremy being the one to purchase the toilet paper last time, it ended up being a strange green brand.

So then Tina insisted she had to use the bathroom, too.

It's funny, the things kids notice.
