Thursday mornings can be a little ragged around our house after getting in late Wednesday night. Coffee all around! (Really, it's mostly milk.)
Riley lost another tooth. I was out, and so she yanked it herself (Jeff said she was determined not to wait till I came home.)

She just woke up from her nap and said to me "how 'bout we go out for lunch, momma?"

Emmie's a little bizarre
To explain: Earlier today we were outside. Riley and Logan were riding their bikes, and Emmie was sometimes riding her tricycle, sometimes wandering around poking her little finger into various things on the lawn and in my little herb garden. At one point, since I didn't want her to wreck my little herb garden I said to her, "Emmie, get out of there, that's my garden." She replied, "Oh! I wish I had a garden."
Then, she seemed to think for a minute and said (seemingly at random) "You're Frog and I'm Toad. Hi, Frog." I played along, (impressed that my 27-month old could pretend and role-play at this level) "Hi, Toad." So she says, "Where's my garden, Frog?" And I played along, just making stuff up and being silly with her. This went on all afternoon - same conversation, different places through the house.
Just now I was thinking about how persistent she was with this little scenario, and thought about the Frog and Toad book, looked at it and sure enough, one of the stories is called "The Garden." Frog has a garden, Toad admires it and says to Frog, "I wish I had a garden." Then proceeds to plant one...
Is she, or is she not just too much?

quote of the day
Sunday, March 19, 2006
This is one of Logan's recent robot creations - look closely for these details: little boy running from robot (front bottom center), guns coming out of robots head, hammer in one hand and saw in the other, details of buttons and other robot-stuff.

more breakfast conversation
Logan interrupted with - Mom, is God the Church?
Me - No.
Logan - Is God everything?
Me - No, that's called Pantheism. But God is a spirit, and he is everywhere.
Logan - What's a spirit?
Me - Well, in a person it's the part of you that thinks and loves other people and ...
Logan - And if you're good enough you get powers. Superpowers, right? Maybe. I think.
Logan - Mom, what should I draw?
Me - How about, (I look around, seeking inspiration, and see in my open cabinet a can of beans) how about a cowboy with his horse?
Logan - I don't know how to draw a cowboy.
Me - Okay, how about a pirate ship landing on a deserted island to bury a treasure chest?
Logan - Okay!
So how is that easier to draw?

"I'm super-Emmie!" (holding her blanket out like a cape)
"Oh, I have beautiful eyes!"
"I'm okay, mom. I'll try again." (tonight at Riley's soccer practice after she tripped while running)

"Monster" truck phobia
(Running in from the back porch) "Momma, momma, save me! There's a monster truck!" (She has overheard Logan's recent obsession with monster trucks.)
"That was a monster truck! That monster truck driving out there it scare me! It scare me in my tummy."
