It was a day for stifling laughs

While I was making dinner, Anne, Betsy and Ramona gathered up the Mark Kistler art book and English from the Roots Up and headed downstairs.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

"We're going to teach Mr. Putter (the cat) to either draw or read Latin."

I should have guessed that. Silly me.

Three-year-old Ramona, when presented with a turkey-and-noodle concoction at dinner, said, "Oh, great! Now what?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At bedtime, Ramona heard her sister's voice in the bathroom. She shouted, "That could be Anne! She's in danger!"

  2. Karen, the last few posts have me rolling! Thanks so much for starting my day on a high note.

    And, by the way, how did my kids get to your house? The Street in Time story sounds exactly like them.

  4. Update: They say that Mr. Putter's attempts were, and I quote, "pitiful." :-)
