Xander likes to walk around carrying a compass (pink, of course) and call it his GPS. I guess it's sort of the earliest kind of GPS.

What's on the menu

Jessica and Xander are pretending they're running a restaurant. Xander asked me if I wanted iced tea or hot chocolate.

I threw him for a loop when I answered, "iced coffee."

Pause. "Iced tea or hot chocolate?"

"Iced coffee."

Another pause. "Do you want hot chocolate?"

Sigh. "Yes, please."

Then Jessica, in a stage whisper, said to him, "Put some ice in it."


"Put some ice in it."


"Put some ice in it."


I'm not sure what I ended up getting.

Yesterday Jessica managed to bang her shoulder and upper arm into the edge of the kitchen counter as she was rounding the corner. It really hurt and she was really upset, just wanted Mommy to hold her.

Xander, in a stellar display of compassion for his injured sister, watched her cuddling with me and said accusingly "You almost pushed me down."
