    To lighten the mood after that lead balloon I just dropped...

    DS2.7 asked yesterday for a "delecta-bowl" of ice cream. He's learning to use humor to disarm regularly these days.

    Did you have any particular prank in mind, or did it depend on what was amputated? laugh

    It was all very ghoulish and theatrical, definitely Edward Gorey-esque, like staging being run over by one of my parents in the car and having body parts go flying. Or going trick-or-treating and "accidentally" losing a limb on someone's porch, having them hand it back to me, and then their freaking out when they realized it was real.

    My DD4 has started singing songs by singing every other word - like the Frozen song below.

    "The glows on mountain
    Not footprint be
    A of
    And looks I'm queen.
    wind howling this storm
    keep in, knows I
    Don't them , don't them
    Be good you have be
    don't , don't them
    Well, they
    Let go, let go
    hold back
    Let go, let go
    away slam door"

    So yesterday DD10, DD9, and I were having another talk about sex while we were driving home (canít remember how it came up, but I was warning them that in middle school they would hear a lot of weird totally wrong information about sex, like kissing might get you pregnant). So, DD9 (our quirky one) says that sex is like a vending machine. The sperm are like the coins. They go up to the egg, and then at some point the baby comes out like a candy bar.
    I swear Ė I started laughing all over again this morning!!!

    LOL! My niece gave her mother a Mother's Day card this year with a carefully detailed drawing of a uterus and ovaries on the front. It said "Of all of these in the world..." and then on in the inside "I'm so glad I fell out of yours!"

    She's going to have a nasty surprise in a few years. eek

    DD7 does this, too. She was cutting up old shirts last week, ostensibly to help me make dust cloths. She labelled several of them with the states she thought they resembled. Oddly enough, there were none in the shape of Wyoming, Colorado, or any other rectangular states. smile
