The offspring

Anna lost another tooth on the bottom. Eating things like bagels and apples is a challenge. Tonight she discovered another lose one on the top! They are falling out way to fast for me!

Colin loves reading his books about sharks. Two of them mention how sharks' skeletons are made of cartilage, which is more bendy than bone. For example, your ears have cartilage.

Colin asks me, "What's in your hair?"

I say, "Uh, dead hair cells. Keratin."

Colin says, "But hair is bendy. Hair is cartilage."

I say, "Well, your hair is bendy but it isn't cartilage."

He grabs my nose and says, "Your nose has cartilage inside."

I say, "Right! And what else?"

He says, "Boogers."

Anyone for dessert?

HA HA HA! That got me laughing out loud. Our Colin is so funny.

That picture of Anna is gorgeous. I was just looking at a picture of her in my office here when she was 2. She is definitely looking older now. And she's such a great combination of the two of you with Anth's high cheekbones and your coloring and features. Just lovely!

haha Did he laugh when he said "boogers"? It made me laugh. Obviously I am the same age as Colin.

I love how kids are so literal in their translations!

Anna has really cute gums!

Ha! This reminds me of the stupid thing we always say around here when someone proclaims they have something in their eye. Some nearby smartass always replies, "yeah, your eyeball!"
