My 6-yr old G-daughter phoned to say "I have phlegm on my uvula"

mm (3yo) watching ballet:That guy should button his front.
me: I don't think he has buttons on his shirt.
mm: Then he should buy some and sew them on his self.

Today, IKEA:

"That young one appears to have separation anxiety."

Thor, aged 9, re screaming toddler.

The inch took a photo of a page from his airplane book of a P51 mustang and told me he was going to show the (sepia toned) photo on his camera to his friends and tell them he really saw the airplane and took a picture of it.

...I must add that Thor's comment came shortly after we eventualy found him exhibiting absolutely no anxiety about being separated from us, although he claims otherwise and we were about to get the store to go to lockdown......

Of course you told him that would be dishonest, and gave him tips on making it more realistic.

That's the worst. But at least he wasn't a toddler actively trying to hide from you.

So I've made these "musical education" compilations to play in the van, so my kids will be exposed to important music. Sometimes I'll quiz them to see if they can identify a genre, like reggae. Every time I ask the girl (4yo) if she likes jazz, she says "I like the movie jazz."

I couldn't figure out what she was talking about, so finally I asked her about the movie jazz.

She said, "We watched it on bacation." Okay.

"What happens in the movie jazz?"

"Well, the man opens him up to see what is inside him."

"You mean, what is inside a man?"

"No, what is inside jazz."










"Do you mean the movie JAWS?"

On vacation in Florida we watched all aquatic-themed movies, including JAWS.

Out of nowhere yesterday, Minifob informed me, "I'm drinking this water so that it will come out of my privates."

I agreed that was a good plan.
