Positive Thoughts

Yesterday we had one of those freak ant invasions that happens several times a year in our small town.  I quickly sprayed the horde down with my vinegar/peppermint soap/tea tree oil mix and wiped them away.  Toby (age 5) paid close attention to ant ridding technique and then stated simply and sweetly, "I'm glad that ants can die."

Space Cadet

For days Miles has been telling us he wants to talk to Sticker Man.

"Who is Sticker Man?" we'd ask.  "The man at Fred Meyer who gives you stickers?"

"No!" Miles would instantly be annoyed.  "Stick-er Man."

"Is Sticker Man at the library?"  We would try again.

"No.  Sticker Man is in space!" He was trying so hard to make us understand.

We finally understood yesterday when I randomly found a Toy Story character costume at a thrift store and brought it home for Miles.  He was excited when he put it on and immediately spoke into his elbow, "Buzz Lightyear to Sticker Man!"  

Mystery solved:  Sticker Man=Star Command.
