Recent Gems

An excerpt from The Very First Gnome Story, as told by Charlie: "The mommy gnome had to pee really bad--there wasn't enough time to get to the bathroom. So she went outside without even a jacket on and peed on a stick. And to her surprise, she saw two lines on the stick! And that's how she knew she was pregnant. With gnomes."

"It's okay if you want to homeschool me, but when I'm old enough to go to potions class.. I'M GOING TO POTIONS CLASS."

Charlie woke up in the middle of the night and insisted that we choose our "scientist names" right then and there. We shall henceforth be known as Neutron and Dr. Mamacita.

Charlie, upon receiving a package with a He-Man figure in it: "Oh look, Tea Man! He drinks more tea than anyone in America!"

Proud Mama Moment: Charlie was working in a book of artistic prompts (like a coloring book but way funner) and came upon one with an empty bird cage. "Excellent!" he said. "I shall draw an EX-PARROT!"
