My niece joined the family on July 12th, 2010. This special young lady's mother is my younger sister, which in classic Chinese culture makes me her Jiu Jiu (舅舅) -- thus the title of this blog. Here I intend to semi-regularly post reflections, thoughts, stories, and assorted whathaveyous pertaining to our trip to China, adoption in general, and (mostly) watching my niece grow up. Since the web is a very public place, I will attempt to maintain my family's privacy while telling the story... but I invite you to follow the blog and come along for the adventure!

Just a Really Quick Pipsqeakism

 I picked up the Pipsqueak from after-school care on Friday, and she came up with something I just had to share with y'all.

She was (as usual)  talking nonstop a mile a minute with a new subject of "conversation" every two or three minutes when out of the blue she asked if she'd be able to swim in my pool this summer. I said that I would have to find out how to get her a guest pass but that I didn't see any reason she wouldn't be able to swim once or twice. That led to the following statement:

"Good, but I can't go in too deep. I can kind of do four feet but I'm really only useful in three feet."

(Yes, I apologized for busting out a big belly laugh.)
