Follow Me

Boys have an uncanny ability to find mud, secret forests, and paths to freedom. It's a personal delight to clandestinely follow my own boys as they discover these things. Never mind the playground equipment on the other side of the retaining wall, the dried up (well, almost dried up) irrigation ditch is much more fun.

I especially enjoy eavesdropping on their conversations.

Cooper: Look Mas, that's a secret forest.
Mas: Eewwww, Toop!
Cooper: We need to go this way, to get away from the bad guys.
Mas: *heavy breathing*
Cooper: Oh Awesome! Mud.
Mas: Whoa! Sssshhhh!

I thought that particular love (french fries and frosties) was a weird concoction that my kids dreamed up! Who knew???
