From the mouths of babes...

I decided to make some simple fudge yesterday - from a recipe on the back of a marshmallow bag - and as I was stirring the sugar and milk on the stove, Brian came in to see what I was up to. He asked what I was making, and wasn't sure what to think about 'fudge' - not sure if he's ever had it. He saw the marshmallows and asked if I was going to use them. I said yes, but maybe he ought to try one to make sure they were ok. He said thanks, and took one. He was quiet a moment, so I asked if it was ok. He said, "I don't think the sample taken was sufficient for me to form an opinion, I need to take another and redo the experiment." So... I said, ok, and perhaps you ought to take one to your sister for a second opinion as well.

The fudge turned out well - I used coconut instead of nuts; rich and yummy.

I think Brian's reading and absorbing of goodness knows what next vocabulary is going well too.

LOL. Honestly, Jonny says things like that yet but at a younger level. How cute.

That's awesome. Madeleine's quote of the day was at the doctor. She was given an eye test and passed...she got the picture of the circle, square, but when shown a picture of a house drawn in a specific shape, she accurately called it a pentagon. We were all stunned. What 3 year old knows a pentagon? Maybe a little TV isn't so bad after all. :P

Hi Matt,

Good job Madeleine! Smart girl!
I thought I would be 100% against TV watching or computer games, but there's actually a lot to be learned from them (if tv is supervised, and we prefer PC games to gamebox games.)
