Silly Giraffe, cinnamon toast is for kids!


Nugget (to Daddy):  You're not a man, you're a Daddy.

Daddy (to Spork and Tater):  Are you sure you don't want to hear the rest of this story?  It's riveting!

A conversation between the Nugget and his Giraffe (voiced by Mommy)
N:  Giraffe, did you know it's cinnamon toast day at school tomorrow?
G:  Hooray!  I can't wait to have some!
N:  Well, actually you can't have any cinnamon toast, because you're a lovie.  Also your mouth doesn't open.
G:  Awww, man!
N:  But maybe I can make you some pretend cinnamon toast in dramatic play.

N:  Mommy, please turn down the radio, I have to tell you something.
M:  Go ahead.  I'm listening!
N:  If you are bald, you have to put a lot of oil on your head.

N:  (on the swings)  I'm going so high, it's like I'm flying.  I'm a flying pan!
M:  What's a flying pan?
N:  (looking concerned about Mommy's lack of intellectual capabilities)....a pan that flies.

Spork and Tater, inspired by their big brother, have already learned to use the "regular" swings.  Spork was hesitant at first but now begs constantly to go higher.  Even when there's someone pushing him already, he whines, "More!  More!  More!  More!"

Spork is still on the nap boycott, but often we are so busy in the spring/summer, that he passes out in the car, and we can transfer him to his crib.  But when he wakes up, it's as if he looks around and curses that his boycott was broken by his own exhaustion, and he wakes up with the "angry cry"!

Tater has started to call every quadruped animal a dog.  While inaccurate, it's very cute.
