mom, i need the chop stick...

both my boys call 'chapstick' chopstick. it is funny, but the best is when they say it's "because my lips are chopped". it makes me laugh every time.

the car-molds are gone

my family makes caramels from scratch for the holidays. it's tradition. hours go into this endeavor, but believe me, it's worth it. today, the last of the homemade caramels was eaten. we won't have them again until next year. both boys were saddened by this and met bfp at the door when he came home from work to tell him 'the car-molds are gone.'

the dog did it

i couldn't find artist this morning so i went looking for him. i found him in cocoa's kennel and asked him what he was doing.

"oh, cocoa locked me in so she could spend time with me."

huh. the dog might be smarter than i first thought. :)
later that morning he came up to me looking sad. i asked what was wrong.

"cocoa won't play with me. i have 'chomp' (a card game) all set up and she keeps walking away."

i tried to console him with "dogs don't like to play cards, honey." he looked at me with disdain and said "yes, they do. she's played with me before."

oooookay. i guess you really can teach a young dog new tricks.

one sock, two sock, red sock, blue sock

me: what are you doing?

artist (searching frantically): i can't find my lucky socks this morning.

me: are they the ones you currently have on your feet?

artist (sheepish): yep. thanks mom!

i don't know why, but i found this funny. :)
