Summer Reading

Today was the first day of school for summer. Seth and I started off at swim team and then he request to go to Compton's Kitchen for breakfast.

After we headed over to the library and when we walked in Seth grabbed a book of the first display table and said , "This looks like the kind of book you would want to read with me," which was absolutely true because I was about to reach for it but he got it before I could.

Sometimes I just get a feeling about a book, like a wave of peacefulness comes over me when I look at or hold a new book, and that's often how I choose what we read together.

My instinct​ is usually right and today was no different. Roxaboxen was lovely book about the true story of some children in the Arizona desert who made a play town primarily out of their imaginations. Even though the book is recommended from ages 5 - 8, Seth and I both enjoyed it very much

Too funny!

So apparently there was an incident if some sort at the Arianna Grande concert the other day.

Mark: OK Google. (Android equivalent of Siri.) What happened at the Arianna Grande concert?

Seth: What would you do if it said, "You are too old for Arianna Grande. Try searching for smooth jazz instead"?

Funny Kid

It has been so long since I posted but I want to remember some of the funny things Seth has said lately. Ever since Seth went to school and I went back to work there is no time. Maybe I'll try to pop in now and again.

Wise words by Seth:

Ugh. Trump and Steelers do not mix. (To a car with stickers for both.)

Why is everyone hating on Bigfoot? I think he's just as real as heaven.

I like my crotch to be loose and flowing. Not all tight and hot.

S: Well you told me someone got shot. Maybe it was one of the Beatles?
M: Yeah, bud. That was John Lennon.
S: Oh yeah.
