Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

The boys finished off some crackers today and Captain Earthquake was quick to claim the empty box as his own. When I showed up and suspiciously asked what he was going to do with it, he looked at me with big wide eyes and said cheerfully, “I’m going to catch bugs and put them in it…………..and keep them outside, of course!”

He’s pretty smart for a little guy.

Hubby is feeling particularly bad this evening, poor guy. After dinner he was leaning on the counter bemoaning how long he’s been under the weather. His exact question was, “How long has something been wrong with me?”

Now I ask you, Internets: Would you let that opportunity pass you by?

I couldn’t. So I replied, “I don’t know. How old are you?”

My post over at GNMParents (now ForeverParenting) this week is up. We’re talking about the gloomy headlines and news every day and whether or not it’s affecting kids. Check out the comments! I’m interested in your opinion about my politician/Nextel theory.
