This might not be funny to anyone not Australian, but Mav was on a roll a couple of nights ago. First he said, "Canberra is the most exciting place to visit" and then a short time later Aden asked him if he was going to do some push-ups and Mav's response was, "After I file my nails."

After the second comment, Aden and I were literally rolling around the floor laughing our arses off.

Not something the kid said, but a story about the kid...


My stepson's mother recently let us know that she's trying to cut back on the amount of soy the boy eats, because soy contains phytoestrogens which can mimic real estrogen in the body... and, well, she's concerned that he's kind of a pansy.



I got news for you, lady. I was predicting your son would be gay from the time he was 18 months old. Ain't got nothin' to do with the soy.


The sad thing is she's a bit of a fundamentalist, and this will probably seriously harm her relationship with him when he is older. Not really my problem, though.

Descending in the elevator -with strangers- at the airport tonight:

Hector (quietly): that sort of tickles!
Thor (loudly) yeah, it tickles my wiener too!

I'm trying to figure what you could see in an 18 month old that would tell you he's inclined to be gay. I've got nothin'.

So what was it?

He would walk around with his hands on his hips, except with his thumbs turned outward and the hands rotated around towards his kidneys. His favorite toys were his sister's Barbie dolls, and his favorite game was to dress up in her dresses (never other dressup clothes, just her dresses.) He shrieked in the presence of anything even moderately loud or aggressive, and was scared to play on most playground equipment.

All very silly and stereotypical of course, and at the time my prediction was a joke. But he has done nothing but reinforce the stereotypes in the years since. (And just to make sure it's clear, I have no problem with his personality, whatever it may or may not indicate. It's who he is. But stereotypes do exist for a reason...)

I know kids like that, and my friend too. the ones I know aren't adults yet, but she says the kid she knew was a screaming queen from age 2 and is now just the same ages 30ish.

It was around 93 degrees at the hottest point of the day today, and when my neighbor asked my 8 year old where her jacket was before school today, she rolls her eyes and says"it's going to be hotter than hell today!"

Princess OtR was playing a Life Saver Candy game where you match the halves to make a whole - When she got stuck and asked for help she said, "Thanks mommy. You're a Life Saver." Pretty punny for five I think.

Aden goes to school with a kid called Adam Stiff, and today they had to write their last name before the first, so it came out STIFF, Adam.

So Aden was telling me this and then said, "If my last name was Stiff, I'd hate my first name to be Richard".

He's 12. Almost 13. First year of high school.

Everything is about the penis now...and I suppose it will be for the rest of his life.

I knew a guy called Mark Stretch. Of course, on the library computer system, it's family name first. true story.

Princess OTR (age 5) did a drawing of me, her, hearts, rainbows, flowers, etc. In one margin there's an NESW - I asked why: "That's a compass mommy, cuz I live you in all directions."
