Today, while doing her business on the potty, she said," mom, I love helping planet earth and keeping it blue and green. Remember how I used to talk about moving to moon or Neptune? I don't have those feelings anymore."
    Lol!


    Better than my last resort which was M&Ms.

    DS21mo was pretending to make Grandpa tea yesterday:

    Grandpa-- What flavour of tea are you making?
    DS (Pauses thoughtfully, then pretend sips)-- Hmmm, it's *very* delicate.

    He's also taken to referring to the neighbour's incessantly barking dog as the "poorly trained dog." No other (occasionally) barking dog is given that epithet.

    DS6 was just talking in his sleep.

    DS6: Mummy, I just saw Mercury!

    Me: Really? In your dream?

    DS6: No, in real life...*Snore*

    It's sweet to think he's dreaming about something he loves smile

    DD 3.1's declaration today:

    "I've had enough of preschool already (she started two months ago). I need to learn to write now Mommy. It's time for me to start Kindergarten. I need to finish school quickly so that I can do ballet."

    Right. You're three, after all. It's high time you picked a career and planned out your training schedule.
