Reptilian predecessors to Mammals discovered!

Actual conversation between the Sita and I this evening:

"[The Dude] is a big boy. [The Sita] is a big boy!"

"No, [the Dude] is a big boy; [the Sita] is a big GIRL! Mommy is Girl! Daddy is a Boy! Nonna is a......."


(Don't worry, we cleared up this confusion quickly. After laughing about it.)


I'm stealing this from Mikaroni. It's not my birthday soon, so I can't use her incentive, but I still think it could be fun!

1. As a comment on this post, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn’t matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It’s actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I’ll assume you’re playing the game and I’ll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Consumerism, Revealed

The Dude has a subscription to the Legos magazine. He loves getting something just for him in the mail, he loves looking at the cool things kids have done with Legos, and he loves reading the comics that come inside with every issue.

Today, he enthusiastically exclaims, "I like my Legos magazine because it shows me all the things I don't have!"

Yes, yes it does. And because he is so keyed in on getting new things and better things and the things that everyone else have already, I don't know why we even considered letting him get this magazine. Since really, he's uncovered the entire reason for this "free" collection of shiny colorful papers at the age of four and a half.
