Speaking as a protestant, I highly recommend the exposition on protestant sexual practices. It's often lost in the shuffle after the showstopping "Every Sperm."

Several times while watching Thomas the Tank engine, inch has ordered me out of the room while a particular episode is playing. He gets very agitated and is emphatic about me going away. It is the episode with a big elephant being carted around. I am going to watch it later and see what it's about.

Very odd. All the others he doesn't mind me being around, and the one where Fergus has to go to the smelter, gets him scared and he insists that I stand by.

It's my own personal WTF?

we went to the mountains this weekend. we had the radio on with some old-fashioned country christmas music on, and while driving up the fog-covered mountainside, we could see only fog and a smidgen of road. after a few miles, my 6 yr old asked 'mom, are we in heaven?'

MiniQ also called my cell phone today and left this message:

"Mom, brother went somewhere 'ribout' (that's how he says 'without') asking.
OK.
Bye."

My daughter has taught him well.

If you were in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, I can understand how the kid could get confused that way.

My son found a piece of paper on top of a pile of stuff. It was obviously an important financial document. It had his name on it. And it had an amonut of money in excess of $500. He came to the conclusion that it was a check for him and came tearing upstairs to show it to Mrs. Dallas.

I can only imagine how crestfallen he was when she explained to him that it was not a check, but a receipt for his daycare expenses.

(We're de-cluttering the house, and all kinds of old records are surfacing. "Do we need to keep the tax return from 1993?")

My daughter (2) has a very unhelpful set of responses when she hurts her self and we ask her where she hurts:

Over there ---> *points to floor*
or
In the kitchen.
or
At the door.

Sometimes she's stopped crying before we figure out what the problem is.

Maybe it's your decor?

Have you asked him? Maybe when he's not watching it, bring it up. Now I've got to know...
