Sometimes Bennett seems older than his years, such as when he dropped something in the car and told me, “I seem to have lost it.” Or when he told me, “Please don’t respond to me.” What? Turns out that one was supposed to be “interrupt”, which we figured out when he kept saying, “Don’t inter-respond [...]
Jeffrey was talking how when he’s grown, he wants to have a farm. Bennett thought this was a great idea and asked him, “Can I be one of your kids?” A few Bennett-isms (aka the four-year-old’s dictionary): Ambliance – an emergency vehicle Igloo – where polar bears live South pool – where penguins live violent [...]

This morning, while I was buttoning his shorts, I gave Bennett a kiss on the cheek. “Careful, Mama, I’m sensibiv.” “You’re sensitive?” “Yeah, I have a broken bone in my belly button.”
Jeffrey and I get fever blisters. We make every effort to make sure that Bennett doesn’t. Jeffrey is a little anxious about it, [...]
This is post #501! Does that mean I talk to much? Don’t answer that. On to the kid stuff.
Bennett’s been watching “Gaspard and Lisa”, a cute, if odd, cartoon on Disney, Jr. Gaspard and Lisa are both dogs, complete with walking, talking dog families. Which is normal for a cartoon, except that everyone else [...]
