Super Ultra

L.: "I am going to test out my Super-Ultra puppy eyes on Daddy.  It's totally gonna work.  Like, at school yesterday I was shooting at Carlos with a rifle because he was a rabid dog.  But nothing happened so then I used super-ultra puppy eyes and he said, "Aaahhh.." and then fell over.  Ha ha ha ha! "

(Btw: this photo was taken on a different day and is completely unrelated
 to the above story.  Someone is a little one-track minded these days, I guess...)

fortune (part II)

L.: "I made a new fortune teller.  The bad fortune for 'deer mouse' is 'you will die of hantavirus'."
Me: "But that's a terrible fortune!"
L.(whispering): "I know..."

"Mom, we want to dress up like twins today"

stuff they say

L. worked all evening on this paper "fortune teller."  She made up all the options and "fortunes" herself and then tested them out on A.

Transcript of conversation:
L.: "So which do you choose?"
A.: "Uhh..how about that one: 33."
L. (reading fortune): "You will become an old, fat man."
A.: "Huh?  I don't get it."
L.: "Yeah, that one is just random."
A.: "I don't get it."
L.: "It's just random.  Well, except that it's like Jesus.  Except opposite."

found while cleaning out the ol' Inbox

Back in February, the children's librarian sent me an email message with this photo attached.

Subject line: "Fight the power!"
Email message:  "Is what L. said to me today when I told her I though that she made a great Lincoln, and would have freed the slaves."

Last time I went in for parent-teacher conferences, I was so very proud of myself.  I was on-time, my hair was presentable, I had on some makeup and I wasn't even in pjs.  I didn't even lose a child along the way. 
Came home afterwards to find that my shirt was on inside-out and had been all along. 

Will today's effort be more successful?

I went all the way to PA and they took me to see rocks


....and a bear!

check this out, P-roc:

A praying mantis somehow snuck into our mudroom and then overnight laid a huge egg sack (on that headband).

  Isn't that SO COoooL?!?
