Thought of the Day

(brought to you by: Carson)

Carson is now at that age where random stuff flies out of his mouth all of the time.

Case in point:
On the way home tonight Carson tells me "we don't go on the monkey bars outside with our pants down."

Useful information.

Points to Ponder

(No, I'm not witty enough to come up with this on my own. I received this in an email)

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Why do you have to 'put your two cents in'... but it's only a 'penny for your thoughts'? Where's that extra penny going to?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up like every two hours?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

Why is 'bra' singular and 'panties' plural?

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Why do they call it an asteroid when it's outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it's in your butt?

Little Sponge

I thought this picture was appropriate, seeing as Spongebob is Carson's newest obsession! (thank God for dvr)

Well, our household has its own little "spongebob." His name is Carson. As the saying goes...kids are total sponges, and our lovely three year old is no exception. Last night we were in the kitchen cooking dinner and Carson came in and told me "Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday." I was blown away! I had no idea that our little one already knew the days of the week. He just recently learned how to spell his name, can count to ten in spanish, pour himself a drink and is now tracing letters at school.

With the good, comes the not-so-good as well! Carson has shown us that our household is full of procrastinators. He has a variety of sentences that I can only assume he picked up from, well, us. "Two more minutes" "Maybe later" "Maybe tomorrow" "Maybe next time" are a few of his favorite responses when asked to do something. We are learning to be very careful with what we say in front of our very vocal child and taking this opportunity to teach him as much as his little brain can "soak up."
