...at 8, he is really getting into puns and sound-alike types of jokes.
I dragged him to a playground full of 2-3 year olds last week for his younger sister's playgroup. Suddenly he stopped running around the equipment, came over to me, and said
"Why did the toddler cross the playground?"
"Uhh, I don't know. Why?"
"To get to the other SLIDE. Get it? Slide!"
We brought a tiny brown grasshopper and the first lightening bug I've seen this year home from the school playground, which I convinced him to release in the backyard. The caterpillar he found in our yard is still in its rubbermaid container on our kitchen table. I think it's a bagworm, yuck.
