Well, alrighty then.


Me:  Chipmunk, are you tired?

C:  No.

Me:  You yawned just now...that means that you're tired, doesn't it?

C:  No.  My white blood cells are chasing a germ.  They're working hard and that makes me tired.

 I really can't argue with that.

What did you say?

Mama:   Chipmunk, look!  There's a police officer over there.

Chipmunk:  What? Where?

M:  Over there-do you see him in his uniform?

Hey Crab Man!

We had a blast with Halloween this year! I'm a big believer in home made costumes - they're just so much more fun! The Chipmunk has been telling us for MONTHS that he needed to be a hermit crab for Halloween. An orange one.

But first a little fun...our little one tends to be VERY literal. You have to explain to him when things are pretend - he's a serious guy sometimes so we try to throw in a little whimsy when we can. Do you know what happens on Halloween if you plant candy corn?

It grows, of course!


It turns out, that's where pipe cleaners come from too. He was excited about that!


Now for the main event...the hermit crab all ready for trick or treating!  He had a great time and has already decided that he wants to be a horse next year :)
