They Don't Understand Sarcasm

The boys had a huge yet expected meltdown as we so cruelly tore them away from Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead this past Saturday, where we had attended a friend's birthday party. While buckling them into their seats, they were both fake-crying at the top of their little lungs and causing quite a noise.

Dad said to them, "Wow - you guys are great actors. You should go to Hollywood."

The crying immediately ceased, their interest piqued. Anyplace but home had to be better.

"We want to go to Hollywood!"

A few weeks ago we were out of town visiting friends. When we were getting ready to leave, their three year old son was reluctant to say goodbye.

I made the mistake of asking him if he wanted to run off and join the circus with us. Man, did he think that sounded like a great idea!

Funny thing is, I could totally see him working for the circus. He'd love, love, love the trapeze!

That's it. You have to be my best friend now, because you used "piqued" ... and spelled it correctly. I'm smitten.
