Trying to win some fabric...

My mom is having a give-away for her blogiversary, so I'm posting for an extra chance to win. If you want to see her beautiful quilts (and maybe a shot or two of my adorable-albeit-slightly-evil kids), click on the word "Mom" under blogs I read!

The Five Senses

Lest this become the world's most depressing blog, I have a kidlet story. Today when I picked Timothy up from preschool, we were talking about his day as we drove to Gabe's school. I knew his class has been studying the body, so I asked if they were still talking about the five senses in group time. With a little help, I got him to name sight, hearing, touch, smell...but he was struggling on the last one. At last, he said, "Oh, I know! It's temptation!"

Trying to keep a straight face I said, "I think you might mean taste."

"No," he insisted, "it's temptation! Like, if there is a cake on the counter and you would like to eat some but you haven't had your dinner yet, you should probably wait till after dinner! That's temptation!"

You can't argue with that kind of logic!
