A Sticky Situation

Charlie, a burgeoning scientist, has a theory: if you put enough peanut butter on the soles of your shoes, you can walk up the walls and onto the ceiling. If it doesn't work, that means you haven't added enough peanut butter yet.

Perhaps I'd better get off the computer and hide all the peanut butter. Mommy's a slow learner sometimes.

End of Winter Cute Cuts

The Final? Frosty

Charlie, reviewing his breakfast options. "Look, Mommy! Koala Crunch and Panda Puffs are made by the same author!"

Idiom Logic

Charlie is watching his favorite cartoon, Krypto the Super Dog, when I sneak up behind him with the hairbrush and begin to gently untangle some knots.

"Cut it OUT, Mom!" he grumps at me. "I like my hair like this!"

"I know you do, honey," I reply. "But we need to get ready for Jonas' party." For some reason, he accepts without question that we brush our hair whenever we're going to see Jonas and his family. I plan to ride that train as far as it will take me.

"Oh, okay," he says, consideringly. "Cut it in, then." And turns back to the screen, allowing me to brush away.
