A Mother’s Purse

How do you know you’re a mom? When you arrive at the parent-teacher conference with moose jammies, a squash-covered toddler spoon, and a giant goggly eye in your purse… but no pen.

Amazing how kids can say exactly what they’re thinking without using a single word.

Cannibal Run

Cannon-balls

“This is nice, son. What is it?”
“It’s me, running from cannibals.”
“CANNIBALS?! Where did you learn that word?”
(Thinking: First zombies, now cannibals. Lord help me.)
“Cannon balls, mama. What are cannibals?”
“Never mind. Hey, look at that!”
