We are now officially the parents of "the kid at church who experimentally sticks his finger down his throat in Sunday school and consequently pukes on the teacher."

We got a letter in the mail today from our neighborhood's property management services saying that we are in violation of a rule because our vehicle is not parked properly. We've been parking a vehicle in that same spot for nearly three years now and have never been told such a thing. I looked the company up online this evening and learned it is a new company started by two women. The irrational complaint made a whole lot more sense when I learned that their domain name is springfieldpms.com.

If you ever observe the aging process of a popsicle in the freezer over a period of about six months, you would find that the water slowly evaporates leaving a sticky, colored, syrupy mass contained inside the waxy paper wrapper. Tonight Bradley begged me for a popsicle and I told him that I got rid of them because they weren't really popsicles anymore. He informed me that our babysitter allowed him to have one the week prior. I said, "Really?" And he said, "Yes, I like the gooey purple ones."

Our kids are just small. The doctor finally admitted it. I even stuffed Jason with formula this past week to ensure that his weight would be on the growth charts unlike Wendy who was still 8 pounds at her four month appointment just 15 months ago. However, our kids have never had a problem with their head size. It must be all those brains!

Jason (4 months):
24.75 inches (25th%)
13 pounds (10th%)
17 inch head circumference (75th %)

Sarah (3 years):
33 inches (5th%)
26 pounds (10th%)

Baby stew with a side of Weeble.

I was discussing with Emily types of fruits. I told her fruits were typically juicy. She guessed that cherries were a fruit. I told her she was correct and added a trivial fact that cherries give you stinky farts. Then she thought for a moment, developed a one-sided smile and appeared as if a light bulb switched on above her head and used her new found biological knowledge to conclude that "Daddy must eat a lot of cherries."

I started to read James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl to the kids today. At the beginning James is orphaned at four years old and goes to live with his two mean aunts. Today Bradley was driving me bananas with typical boyish acts and I told him that he needed to get himself under control or I was going to send him to live with his two big mean aunts. A look of fear entered his facial expression and he quietly whimpered, "No." After a moment of thought, he regained a smile and said, "Mommy. Ants aren't big, they're little!" and went off to play, totally disregarding my threat.

I was getting Sarah dressed for church this morning. She was goofing off several feet away and I told her she better get her naked, little hiney over here before I slapped it. She came over quickly with a smile (because she knew I was kidding) and gave a little sideways, leftward boost of her hiney in my direction and informed me there was a treasure in it.

Bradley was gathering lots of blocks and declared he was, "going to get all the blocks in the whole wild world!"

Happy 3rd Birthday, Sarah!
