could we have kippers for breakfast, mummy dear, mummy dear?

Maybe some of you thought I was lying about the white alligators. We also found a house elf in the airport.

It makes me laugh when I see new parents trying to reason with their toddlers. We all do it, but it sure looks funny from the outside. The parent's all, "Bodkin, why did you spit on your brother? Hoosfoos, would you like it if someone bit you?" And the kid's like, "Umm, I'm two. I'm just going to keep throwing poop, if that's okay." Because it's basically like trying to converse with a gibbon. I get that all the time with my kids. I keep forgetting that they're not rational.

Um, I'm under the impression lately that (in my house at least) the adults may not be much better.

(pst...I found this giveaway for goat treats. Thought that you might be interested. )

That is a scary, cool alligator.
Pinga is so cute, she can even pull off the "house elf" look.
I'm constantly reasoning with my kids, and it gets me nowhere. Perhaps in 20 years...
