Captain Valentine

Kids are really into new adventures.

Most especially when they involve unexpected Valentine's Day presents starring their favorite super hero of all time.

And what says "I love you" better than Captain America? 

Happy Valentine's Day everyone...

Jurassic Jokes

Earlier this morning, Sippy Cup accompanied me to do the laundry.

When we got on the elevator heading to the basement, we were joined by a rather portly gentleman, with dark curly hair, glasses and wearing a vintage Member's Only jacket.

Sippy Cup smiled at the gentleman and then looked up at me, motioning for me to lean down as if he had something important to say.

Sippy Cup (whispering): "Daddy..."

Me: "What's up bud?"

Sippy Cup (whispering): "He looks like the guy from Jurassic Park..."

It has become clear to me that his sense of humor has advanced beyond "Knock-Knock" jokes and unanticipated groin punches.

And, for some strange reason, I am so proud of him.
