what do you notice?

I ask because here is my conversation with J after school today.

me: How was school?

J: Good.

me: Did you watch the inauguration?

J: Yes. It was really boring.

J: Did you see President Bush kiss that lady?

me: uh hu.

J: it was GROSS. You never know where that mouth has been.

HAHAHAHA!! But he's right--you never know where it's been!!

Yah. Kissing is kind of a strange thing from an objective point of view. I guess. Kids sure see things from a fantastic perspective.

Kids are the best ever!! This is why blogs exist, so we can share all those cute things!
Poor lady.

I hope your son says that kissing is gross for many stress free years to come!

Too funny! So I asked my daughter if she got to watch the inauguration at school, she replied; "oh yes, and it was winter there!" I am still laughing, poor little Arizonan doesn't even know that it's Winter here too!

From the mouths of babes…

Gotta love what children say

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
