The Perfect Storm
Thank Heaven days like this are rare. My nerves would not survive frequent onslaughts of this behavior, I assure you!

(Yes, that is an actual quote from SuperLemur. Long may the sentiment continue!)

Big Bird and Nursing
...and while you're at it hop on over to Karen's place and leave her some cheerful notes. She's in her first trimester and is having a rough time of it. Thank you, Karen, and hang in there - pretty soon you'll have another little baby to rock and nurse!

Nursery Rhyme Improv
"Humpty-Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty-Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses,
And all the King's men,
Couldn't put Humpty together again....
Um, Mommy? Mommy? MOMMMEEE??"
Liam: "What happens next? What's the next rhyme?"
Me: "Um, Hickory Dickory Dock?"
Liam: "No, no, no. What happened to Humpty Dumpty? After he fell?"
Me: "I'm not sure..."
Liam (looking like he won't take no for an answer): "What's the next rhyme? Where he got undamaged?"
Me (thinking fast):
Humpty Dumpty got off the ground
And glued himself all nice and round.
All the King's horses
And all the King's men
Were shown how to fix him so nicely, then!"
Liam: "Thanks, Mom....um????
Liam: "What happens in Hickory Dickory Dock after the clock strikes one and the mouse runs down? Where does he go?"
Me: "Let me think about it and get back to you tomorrow."
Liam: "OK. Or maybe I should just ask at school."
With questions like this it's a good thing he's broadening his information sources!
