Love my Storm Queen...

My Storm Queen woke up hacking this morning with the post-cold cough, but at least the Vicks helped her to sleep for a good solid 7 hours or so. She was on the couch reading when all of a sudden she asks,

"Mommy, is "Apple of my eye" an idiom?"

"Yes, honey" I reply.

She continues, "I thought so...you know, like "kick the bucket, or "kid in a candy store", or "down in the dumps".....

I turn and look at her. "Where'd you learn all that?"

"I read it in a book".

Gotta love that girl!
