Mario Mustache

I tried to grow a mustache earlier this summer. Thankfully there are no pictures of it because L puts me to shame.



Caption, please

Possible captions: “I are cute” or “my daughter is a hipster”.


Kid conversation

L, who is 8, came tromping into the kitchen yesterday wearing my shoes. She said:

“Hi, I’m daddy. Blah blah blah neuroscience blah blah blah students.”

Don’t tell her mother

Have I mentioned that she likes to mimic what her parents do?

In which we play “peek-a-boo”

You can put the whipped cream on the side

Conversation with L this morning as I was rushing into the shower:

Me: Your brother is having rice crispies for breakfast. Do you want that or granola?

L: No, pancakes will be fine.

Give us a good read

There are 4,224 pages in the Harry Potter series.  This is relevant because we just finished reading “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” this afternoon.  K was more into the books than L was, but that was okay, because parts are too scary for her.  We’ve been reading the series for more than a year, so now we’re at a bit of a loose end as to what to read now.  I want to read him “The Hobbit”, but I think we might want to take a break from fantasy for now.  “James and the Giant Peach” is on the list (although I can’t seem to find our copy at the moment).  “My Side of the Mountain”, “Julie of the Wolves”, and “Island of the Blue Dolphin” are also potentials.  We’ve already read the Narnia series, “The Jungle Book”, “Stuart Little” and “The Wizard of Oz”, so they’re all out.  So, what was your favorite book as a child?  Leave us suggestions in the comments.
