    DS4 has started "precision eating" - he will, for example, eat half a biscuit, and does it so precisely it looks like it was cut with a knife.

    If nibbling becomes an Olympic sport he will be going for the gold.

    Yep. When DD was younger and whenever there would get to be too many in the freezer, her mother or I would flip off the light in the bathroom and toss a handful in bathtub with her. As soon as they warm up, the start glowing again.

    Have fun,

    Last night, DS woke me in the middle of the night because he needed to tell me his latest ridiculous joke:

    Mom, I am the most humble person in the entire universe.

    (This is the sort of humor that results in Big Trouble at school. I think it's funny.)

    I went into DD's bedroom to see where she was. She popped up off the bed and asked for a hug. She said she "needed to be calibrated."
    !!!!! I always get unusual outpourings of love from her!!! smile

    My DYS DS is a hoarder. In an effort to declutter his room I asked which stuffed
    animals we could donate. He got tears in his eyes and replied none. He said
    He needed to keep them because he was trying to hang onto his childhood because it goes by all too quickly. He's six!

    DD5 has started sleeping with her calculator, along with her stuffed octopus, which she pretends is a giant comb jelly.

    Oh! How sweet! What is it with stuffed animal collections? Our son (PG as well) is also a huge collector, they all have names and personalities. He is 8 and still sleeps with all 20+ of them.

    YDS is also a stuffed animal collector, but he gives and loans his more freely. And when I try to pretend they are real, he sets me straight. lol

    DD16 was one of those kids-- she had the WEIRDEST stuffed animals, too. And yes, each and every one of them had a specific given name, and a life story to go with it. Ellie, fair warning-- the hoarding sort never really outgrow the behavior, I fear. eek


    Loving these last few-- bmoore, my DD had a stuffed (blue-ringed) octopus. She pretended that hers was a baby giant pacific octopus, however. grin
