Laughter Lives

Ok now I have a reason to share a couple of funny stories....

Blaire, oh Blaire, what can I say. She is a spunky 2 year old and I love her. Here is one of her latest stunts. Well, we have been having conversations when she gets in trouble about who is in charge and why. (God made Mommies and Daddies to take care of you and tell you what to do, etc, etc) She woke up one morning and at the breakfast bar I could tell she was in deep thought. She said, "Mom, God told me from heaven with his magic wand, that I was the boss!" I think she must have had a dream about it or something. I don't know where the magic wand comes in.

Blaire had this revelation this afternoon as Uncle Adam drove up. She said, Uncle Adam, (pause) Uncle Michael, (pause) Uncle Alan (pause).... Uncle Todd....HEY, they're all on the same team!

Brooke (our 5 year old) has been to the Bass Pro Shop many times but the last trip she made a discovery. She was looking at all the "stuffed" animals and naming them, asking questions, etc. She paused and got very quiet. "Dad, were all these animals alive one time and now they are dead?"Ayric replied, "Yep." She held her composure but said, "We have got to get out of here with all these dead animals!" She is our vegetarian from birth with such a sensitive heart. The kid has never digested a piece of chicken, beef, pork. I tried to sneak it on for her when she was eating baby food, and out it came. She can pick out the tiniest pieces of chicken in soup. And believe me she has really no idea where it all comes from because if she did, none of us would be allowed to eat meat. Recently she asked me where hamburgers came from and I said, "Well... you know from animals, like cows... " I was really pushing it. She thought about it but I really don't think she gets the whole slaughter the animal and eat it thing yet. My guess is that she thinks it "comes from" a cow much like an egg comes from a chicken.
