Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

They Say the Sweetest Things

"I love you. Can I have a hug? You are the only mom I would ever want to have. "

"When I grow up, can I marry you?" (He was so disappointed to learn that he couldn't.)

"Mommy, I love you so much, you're the best Mommy ever." (Umm, not so much, but it's sweet he thinks so!)

And he didn't even want a cookie or anything. Oh, he has twined himself all through me, this child of mine. Powerful stuff.

And then? He farted on me. Ain't motherhood grand??

My kids say stuff like "When's mom coming home? We want ice cream."

KC, he'll do.

Chris, it's a good thing he didn't - I wouldn't have any to give him. Disposable income? What's that?

BHJ, welcome to Casa de Crazy! Thanks for popping in - I dig yer blog, man. The Evil Genius is usually asking for a cookie or some carrots or grapes or a Life Saver...he just had a sweet nanosecond. It's passed.

Call me Pavlov's Dog -- I live for moments like those! And they happen, too . . . about once a season.
