Things I've Said to My Kids (Part 3)

 Don't lick the bathtub.

It's a TROMbone, not a bong-bone.

You must NEVER pee with your eyes closed!

Why did you put your puppy inside the barbecue grill?

The lamp is not a firepole, stop sliding down it.

Stop making fart sounds with your hands.

Gummy worms don't turn into gummy butterflies.

No, I should NOT buy you a trumpet!

Ewww, we don't lick toy bullets.

It's not scary, it's kale.

Dogs don't need us to buy them pajamas.

Patented Genes? Not so fast...

A breath of common sense!

The Supreme Court Says Human Genes Cannot Be Patented

I've always felt that humans should not be able to obtain patents or copyrights on God's handiwork.

I've always been kind of irked that there are copyrights on the Bible. I mean, shouldn't the author get the copyright credit?

The Supreme Court only applies this decision to human genes, so I suppose GMO producers of corn, soy, canola, etc are off the hook. (That's another soapbox for another time...)

Happy Birthday!

Guess who's THREE years old today?

 
Here's his birthday cake. He asked for a Mickey Mouse cake, this was the best I could do:
 
 
His birthday loot. He's really into Mickey Mouse and Superman these days:
 
 
Blowing out his candles:
 
 
 
The cut-open cake. I didn't have enough cocoa powder to make a two-layer cake, so I made a swirly/marble cake instead, with peanut butter frosting:
 
 
Little man, I can't believe you're THREE already! You love being the "baby" of the family, and you are definitely a snuggle bug. Happy Birthday, sweet boy!

Kale, Honey, and Sprinklers

 
I picked a third batch of kale for dinner tonight: sautée it up with onions and bit of soy sauce, and you've got yourself some mighty fine grub!
 
My Honey's LinkedIn photo. Isn't he handsome?

 
It was warm enough for the boys to play in the sprinkler this weekend:
