Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Cufflink

This morning, I found Lil Sippy Cup staring at the aquarium he had built with his mom; you know, the masterpiece of pre-K artistic expression they patiently created last week?

Seeing as how she had to go back to work today, I figured he was thinking about her and missing her while staring at the aquarium with pride and love.

Standing next to him by the window sill, enjoying the morning silence, I felt a slight tug on my tee shirt.

I looked down and, while holding the aquarium firmly in his hands and staring up at me, he said "Daddy, can we eat this now?"

I'm still not quite sure how to process this latest conversation.  But it's pretty clear to me that, after a brief hiatus, Mr. Hyde is back in town.
