    ROFL. Oh my.

    Well, my DD has already remarked with some solemnity that she thinks he needs a "better PR team."

    Bostonian, my 6yr old recently asked to learn Ruby. She was put of by he size of the two tomes my DH produced (with great enthusiasm) and they ended up breaking out the raspberry pi instead. I do wonder whether she will circle back to Ruby by 9 or 10 though, so hard to know with her.

    Thanks to Rob Ford, I received the following question from my 4-year-old son while listening to CBC radio:

    "Crack pipe? What's a crack pipe?"

    Again, thank you Mr. Ford.

    excerpt from DD5's new story, The Egg and the Stone

    "The egg and the stone lived together on a hillside. Life on the hillside was ideal, except for the fact they only had teeny tiny legs. The friends wanted to be able to walk around together, but their legs were so small that they would roll down the hill in opposite directions. This was both sad and counter-productive. So they decided to visit the doctor, who sent them to a surgeon."



    Every Sunday it brooded and lay on the floor. Inconveniently close to the drawing-room door.

    To combine on- and off-topic content seamlessly and transparently...

    DS4, loudly, after the bus got short-turned:

    "Is there a football team in trouble somewhere, mama?"

    Since when is running headlong into a scrum... camera... bad press?? I though all publicity was good publicity wink

    Lines you wouldn't normally expect to hear a 1.5yo say when playing with a medieval castle play set include: "Drawbridge up! Dissidents in jail!"

    Also, when DS blanked yesterday on the name of a clownfish, he called it a "dorsal fin fish." A bit generic, but not a bad guess!

    DS 3.5 was studying one of his cars and I kept pointing out facts about something unrelated. Finally he got fed up and said in an irritating, firm voice "Stop bothering me with details".

    LOL-- that is great, 1111. I love statements like that.

    My only problem is stifling my giggles in the moment.

    DD13 is doing an analysis of the existentialist themes in...



    Little Miss Sunshine.

    For AP Literature. She feels that this film has a LOT to say about how humans perceive and interact with reality. There is much in common with Oscar Wilde's take on things, she has patiently explained to me.
