Quotable kids

We now know the name of our granddaughter. According to Mouse, she will be naming her first daughter "Clare Emmanuel."

Tonight as we were doing dishes, Bear said to me: "Dad, when you get angry, can you remember not to do an LBL?"

"A what?"

"LBL! You know -- a long boring lecture."

Me (rolling eyes): "OK, how about an SEL instead?"

"SEL? What's an SEL? Short, interesting lecture?"

"No, Short Exciting Lecture."

"Oh. What's that like?"

Perfect setup. "Well, it's like this. AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!" And I leaped at him, tackled him, and tickled him. Don't worry, we were both laughing.
