I've never even done that much, Maeve (been in the same room), so whatever you call ultra-noob-level, I'm there with you. I grew up with parents who were convinced D&D and comic books would condemn me to hell.

My husband played a lot of that stuff growing up, though. I told him the other day that he should feel free to teach our son how to play when he's old enough, 'cause I haven't a clue about it all, so I can't teach him. He just blinked at me and said, "That was random . . . ."

So... does "Yum" count as a first word?

I'd say yes, but it depends, was he looking at lunch or at the dog? Smile

She was eating watermelon. Then she looked up, and said, very distinctly, "Oh, Yum!"

So, one of the most nervous moments on the trip to Canada was crossing back over the border. On the way there, we crossed at . . . the wrong location. Better than an hour and a half to cross a bridge, talk for 30 seconds, and drive on. Much conversation about this on the drive up to the Peace Bridge at Buffalo.

And then we crossed, without much todo. From the backseat, Brandon who is only two, and was still waking up, says, "Did we cross the border okay, daddy?"

Overheard at dinnertime:

Felicity: Don't laugh while you are eating, it will give you sugar bumps!

Simon: Remember, licking doorknobs is illegal on other planets!

Kidlet (who has never seen Stargate, although he knows it exists): "isn't it, if you were in a wormhole, and it stopped, you'd be cut in half?"

Also, he's seen Narnia a gazillion times (the modern ones and the old BBC ones), and views the wardrobe in TLTWATW as a wormhole portal.

This is funniest in Ro's little 3-year-old voice, but you'll just have to imagine:

Ro: Mommy, you wear Daddy's ice skates when him not here!

Me: No, Daddy's ice skates would be too big for me. But I can put his ice skates in the car so he can wear them when he meets us there! How about that?

Ro: Yeah, let's go for it!!

So, some of you may remember me ranting about Dev's 3rd grade spelling homework and how I felt it wasn't challenging enough for him. To recap: Tuesday, first day of school, spelling homework is to copy each word twice (and I do mean copy, the word was right there, with two lines underneath Roll Eyes) and the words are really easy. I felt he was capable of more, so I gave him another piece of paper and had him write out the sentences, as I read them out. I gave that paper back to him Tuesday night, he took it to school on Wednesday where goodness knows what happened to it. Last night's homework was to write out those sentences. He had his spelling list, but not the paper that has the sentences on it. He fretted a bit, searched for the paper and then sat down and remembered the sentences.

Should I be impressed that he remembered sentences from two nights ago or roll my eyes because he can't remember to bring his homework home?

I think both Maeve. Simon is suppose to be learning "handwriting" at the moment. They are also working on multiplication and some spelling words. Both of which is a total breeze for him.

Felicity was reading Simon's spelling words for third grade. We're trying to make sure they stay ahead of the game so we can get them into the magnet school which starts with the 6th grade, I think.

What's a magnet school? (I keep imagining giant building attracting each other and crashing together)

That's a real shame. Frown One of the reasons we moved to this area was because of the school system. We live in a "wealthy" area, even though we aren't really. We just managed to get a smallish house from people desperate to sell before the BIG BOOM in housing. That and its close to family.

So last night we went to a birthday party for a friend's son. Its at this place called "Monster Mini-Golf". Its all under blacklights with crazy monsters and such. It did some weird things to the photographs.


This outfit was completely Felicity. I had nothing to do with it.

There are lots of magnet programs around here but only a few magnet schools.

My current school has a special Communications Arts Program and a math/science/computer science Magnet program.

The School

There are also various elementary school programs and middle school magnets. It's rather insane...

So, we're raising an empiricist.

Today, on the way to school Graeme's best friend said that he was going to run faster than Graeme because he was wearing his "fast shoes." Graeme told him that shoes don't make you run faster, and his friends said that they do. Graeme then said that the only way to be sure would be to get someone else who fit the shoes and have them run twice - once with the shoes on, once with the shoes off. If the person ran faster with the shoes on, then the shoes do make you run faster. His friend looked at him and blinked, then said, "These are my fast shoes, Graeme."

This does have a dark side - Graeme lost his first tooth, but won't put it under his pillow because the Tooth Fairy doesn't exist.
