Next Up: World Domination

Upon my springing him from his bedroom prison this morning, Turtle ran out to the living room to set up camp. He stopped at the coffee table and looked at the mess of dvd cases littering the surface. He pointed at one in the middle.

"I wan' to watch dis movie, Mommy" he said, hopefully.

"Are you sure, Buddy?"


"You don't want to watch Elmo, instead Buddy? Because Elmo is coming on in a second." Elmo is Turtle's latest obsession.

"No, Mommy."

"Are you sure? You want to watch Stargate? Not Elmo?"

"Yeah. Stargate."

Oh NO! I guess the double-dose of sci-fi dork genes were bound to kick in sometime. ;)

Certain moments make a parent proud. I remember when my stepson went through a rap period. Black days. I thought I had lost him. Then he came home from college and slipped a Led Zepplin cd into the player. I gave thanks.

1. i agree with you, you need to do entries everyday so that i have my daily fill of your brilliance.

2. having train potty trained before he turned 3 is wonderful. we didn't get boy trained until he was nearly 3.5. before that when we'd put him on the potty he'd get the look i envision on a death row inmate being tied to the electric chair.

3. i love your family. are they into adopting from out of country?

4. if the weather is too hot where you are, you can always come and visit me. right now it's -20C (-6F) with a -30 (-22F)windchill. you can be pretty certain you'll need a sweater...or 10.

5. you really need to watch more murder and mayhem. murder and mayhem (the true crime type) is good for you :)
