Brains and braun: the whole package

We're studying creation right now for school. It's been fun to spend the last couple of weeks breaking it down with the kids. When I was reviewing the material with them one day I asked Samuel, "What had God not yet created after day 5?" Tricky question with the wording and all...I knew that...I wanted to see if he could think through what I was asking. Without missing a beat he said, "day 6". I've been had. Again.

Sam's also taken to creating a new version of croquet. Using an 8# shot and a sledgehammer on concrete.

Using a different mirror

I was thrilled a few days back to get Samuel out of bed...well, my parents' bed where he'd been snuggled up watching morning cartoons. He looked so little surrounded by the bed covers and pillows. I scooped him up and said, "I love you, little man." He eagerly wrapped his arms around me and said, "I love you, big mama."

What? Big Mama? Me?

Apparently that's not exactly what he meant. "You're not fat all over, mama. Just on the sides."

Good for a thousand laughs and counting.
