fun and games

"What if there were noses all over the toilet and all inside the toilet? And noses all over you! And noses all over me! And noses all over the town and all over the place! And noses all over superheroes!"

A: This bat wants some dinner too.

Me: Well, you can share some of yours with him.

A: No, he wants his own plate.

Me (drawing the line at serving a plate of food for a toy, but trying to be diplomatic): Well, I don't think bats like to eat the same kinds of food that people eat.

A: (pause) Mommy, it's just a toy.

And now, a couple photos.

happy holidays

Abraham's grandma, Cookie, was telling him the story of the three little kittens who lost their mittens. Afterwards, Abraham asked me, "Are Cookie's cats sad?" I said, "Do you mean the cats in the story or real cats?" He clarified, "Not the cats that talk and...make pie!"

"Does the Bominal Snowman have meat inside him?"

"Reindeer the Rudolph"

Singing softly to himself in bed, "Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny booger!"

Back home, after the holiday travels, "When is it going to be a holly jolly Christmas again?"
