Offspring update

Colin: Loves the Beatles, probably because they are ALL BOYS. Singing over and over, "I am the eggman! I am the eggman! I am the walrus! Koo-koo-ka-choo!"

Also, the lesser known version, "I am the acorn! I am the acorn! I am the bottom! Toot-toot-ta-toot!"

Anna: Comes out of her bedroom long after bedtime, presents me with an adorable "My book of storys tollde by my mom, of her cat and dog pashints (patients)." Four tales so far, including, "One day a cat was brot dead. His name was J--. He was 4 years old. And dead. So my mom cut him open. And his heart musle was to big."

Comes out again 10 minutes later and says, "I don't think my heart is beating. I can't hear it, and it hurts."

Do all children these days start writing in the style of Pepys?

We have acorns around here, too. The ones that sound like trombones.

"Toot toot ta toot" cracked me up!

Ha ha ha! What cracked me up is "I don't think my heart is beating."
They are so funny. Thanks for the laugh.
