Dinner Conversation

Me, to Avery, who is picking at what is quite obviously a piece of chicken stuck in her teeth that is making her uncomfortable: "Do you have some chicken stuck in your teeth?"

Avery: "No."

Me: "Well, then, what is stuck in your teeth?"

Avery: "Some hot soup."

Me: "Where did you get some hot soup?"

Avery: "From a stranger."

I guess we'll have to amend the saying to "Don't take candy OR hot soup from strangers."

Hilarious--where do they come up with this stuff?

Even better? Tim called THREE times from BJ's tonight to ask questions about certain purchases. I guess I rolled my eyes before picking up the phone the last time and Avery asked, "Mom -- Why you wanna kill daddy?" (I'm sure I must have muttered "I'm going to kill him" at some point under my breath...look for us on a future Law & Order episode...)

Ah, the file they must have on you at daycare.

I cannot wait until Avery starts blogging or at least commenting on Brutalism. We really must hear HER side of these exchanges.

Indeed, blogging has definitely supplanted the "Baby Book." Nobody ever really kept up with those after a few months, anyway. With this blog and many others (and I hear that many are even more child focused), there is going to be a new generation of children with every embarrassing episode freely available online for one's peers to delve into. And this will of course spawn rebuttal blogs.

It's too bad blogging wasn't around for Gail.

Yes, a travesty indeed.
