A brief moment of duh...

I should be showering, but instead I'm sitting here at the computer because of what Timothy just said to me. As I was doing the breakfast dishes, he walked up to me and said, "Know what, Mama? I have an invisible friend! Do you know where he is?"

"No, Timothy," I replied, "where is he?"

There was a long pause followed by an exasperated reply. "No, I'm asking you where he is. I can't find him because he's invisible!"

I really should have seen that one coming.

Christmas music

My music-loving kid, Timothy, has been learning some Christmas songs at school. This was a huge relief, because to tell the truth, if I have to hear "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells" just one more time...

Anyway, he was singing them in the car for me today. His favorite is "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town". Unfortunately, he doesn't have all the words exactly dead-on. He starts off with, "You'd better watch out, you better not kraut! You better not pout I'm telling you why..." I blame Chris' obsession with bratwurst and sauerkraut.
