Cool Signals

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

coolerWe were packing for a day trip, and couldn’t find our wireless hotspot anywhere. After a long search, we were surprised to find it packed away in the cooler. My daughter had apparently put it there because she said the hotspot needed to be cold. When asked why, she replied, “Mommy always says the Internet is frozen.”

In Good Shape

girl on carpetWe were expecting company for the weekend, so I wanted to make sure all of my children’s rooms were clean. I asked my daughter to go upstairs and see what shape her brother’s room was in. She came running down and said, “I’m not sure, but I think it’s a square.”

algae-eating fishMy son was counting all of his animals, and he listed one dog and two fish. We then reminded him he actually had three fish. My son replied, “You mean the fish that cleans the algae? He’s not a pet. He’s my helper!”
