The zoo.

Last weekend, we decided to visit another area gem, our National Zoo. The weather was beautiful and we got to see a bunch of cool animals. I think I liked the emu the best. I’m not sure why. Little Face slept through a good first half of the visit, but got up to enjoy the elephants and some birds.

Non scaredy-cat.

When I was a little kid I had this irrational fear/disdain/all around icky feeling about those coiled doorstops. Something about that twang. It was a hideous and scary noise to me and I recall always daring myself internally to go and pluck it. For what reason? I have no clue. So initially I thought I had passed it on to my beloved firstborn as Matt would crawl by it, look at it curiously, and then move on. Over time, he would stop longer and stare at it. We would sit down with him and pluck it ourselves to show him that the twang is nothing to be afraid of. But nothing doin’. He would reach out tentatively and then retreat and move away. This went on for maybe months. It wasn’t a big deal, sort of an interesting notable. But there’s been a change! He is a scaredy-cat no mo’! Now he’ll go and pluck for the twang all by himself! Yes, he is amazing.

Store Wars!

Check out Store Wars, a very well-done grocery store war between cantaloupes and cucumbers.

Darth Tater

In honor of Episode III (which we’ll see on DVD), I present:

Darth Tater: Mr. Potato Head figurine

Some of the best lines I’ve heard:

  • “No, I am your totter.”
  • “Trust your peelings.”
  • “Luke, I have drained you well.”
  • “Luke, I am your farmer.”
  • “Use the fork, Luke.”
