Driving home from school today, a Mercedes screamed passed us. 

"Mommy! Did you know - that was a fast Mercedes! A really fast one!"
"Yes, I did see that. He was a fast jerk face"
"Why Mommy?"
"Because he was going way too fast - he's going to kill someone driving like that"
"But Olivier says that racing cars can go fast even on the regular road"
"Olivier is wrong"
"But I think what happened, is that the Mercedes got pizza from Pizza Hut and the pizza started to get cold, so they had to drive fast to get home while it was still warm, so… then it's ok to go really super fast"

I can't argue with this logic.

The view on a typical Sunday morning.  Just you, me and the hallway.

You're such a pro at this train riding thing ... a few minutes before our stop, not surprisingly, you fell asleep.

Did you know that I still sometimes kiss your cheek while you are sleeping at night? Well, I do.

Things I never thought I'd hear myself say: 

1. Double pee, huh? Cool!!
2. You can just share the puke bowl; it'll be fine. 
3. Toothbrushes go in our mouths, not in our pants. 

Things I swore I would never say out loud, but think to myself all the time. 

1. THIS is why we can't have nice things.

The battle for your healthy diet still wages strong.  You are clinging to your Carb and Sugar Only plan, despite our many attempts otherwise. We went head to head again today, which resulted in you sitting at the dining table for 9 hours refusing to eat 1 tiny apple slice (no peel).  Your apple slice (and consequently, my will to live) slowly succumbed to a very slow and painful death.  

You won this round, but only just.
