String and Good Spiders

Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .

. . . feeling really tired.

Today's favorite moments included . . .

. . . recalling this conversation with two of my kids (Daniel, age 5; Anna, age 3) yesterday:

K: Hey, Daniel.  Christmas is a time for doing nice things for other people, but it's also a time when we get a few fun presents.  What kinds of things would you like for Christmas?

D: My very own iPad!

K: Um, Santa doesn't give iPads to anyone under 18 years old.

D: [a little put out] Oh.  Then I'd like some good spiders, that don't bite people.

K: Uh, OK.  Anna, what would you like for Christmas?

A: String.  So I can eat it.

K: You mean string cheese?

A: No, string.

K: ??? [makes a mental note to just plan kid gift lists with Phillip tonight]
