The kids crawled in before dawn for snuggles this morning.
Gomez (3): "KISSES!"
Me: kisses
Gomez gives eskimo kiss. "What are these called?"
Me: "Eskimo kisses."
Gomez: "What are butterfly kisses again?"
Mars (6) demonstrates with his eyelashes. Then he conjectures, "What if a butterfly kissed by sticking out its tongue?"
Me: "I think a butterfly tongue is really called a proboscis."
Mars, sticking out tongue, "ProbosKiss?"

What a toddler's robot needs, he gets

So I opened a pencil case that Gomez (3) has been carrying around and found the cleaning solution for my glasses.
Me: "You can't play with this. I need it to clean my glasses."
Gomez: "BUT, I needed to spray it on my robot's armpits."

On Friday night, I had my purse searched at the entrance to a concert.
"Watch out for windup toys!" I warned.
On Monday, my laptop bag had three stuffed dogs in it.
And today at the bus stop, a little girl pulled a small globular red thing from her pocket, "I've got this for fishing."
I pulled out this.

"Oh yeah? I've got a ninja."
