My kids don’t take daily afternoon naps any more. When they do, it’s time to celebrate the hour of quiet! Below is a “grizzly dog” that Elias made all by himself with home-made play dough. The dog is lying down and opening his mouth. Elias said, “I am the dog’s shepherd. I just killed a fox. The fox was getting near the grizzly dog.”

Here are some things Elias has been saying recently:
“Do mommy chickens give their baby chickens’ milk?”
“Where does water from the sky come from?”
“Why don’t we get sick and die and go to heaven now?”
. . and trying to understand the concept of tomorrow: “But now is tomorrow!”
“Cities are bigger than our veranda!”
