it should be noted that the youngest son (K) decided yesterday to change his name to "Canner".

we are still in the "getting to know you" phase of our relationship but so far these are the things i have noticed about our Canner:

1. always wears cape (actually, a brown hoodie hanging from his head)
2. walks with cane
3. lives in garage
4. likes to play piano
5. sings sad songs about people who are dead.

i've tried to snap a picture for you but apparently Canner does not allow himself to be photographed.

queen frostine

folks, meet queen frostine, latest object of K's affection.

he noticed her while playing a morning game of Candyland with M today and immediately decided they would be married.

"how will you get her to marry you?" M asked.

this gave K momentary pause but after a moment's thought he quickly found his solution.

"when she is lost in the forest she will say 'help! help!' and then i will go and look for her and find her and then we will get married."

this seemed to satisfy both father and son for a while and they resumed their game quietly.

"what a sweet boy," i thought as i listened in, proud of raising a little knight in shining armor.

soon, however, K broke the silence with another thought about his new lady love.

" i really just like her breasts, daddy. "

M: "uh, you do?"

K: " yeah, they're so BIG!"

M: "uhhhhhhhhhhhh..."


seriously, folks. what's a mother to do?
