We intererupt this blogging break...

to bring you these moments from the Chaotic household. Because even if the middle of my crazy busyness my kids are still really. freakin. adorable. Oh I know my life would be substantially less stressful without them, but nowhere near as much fun.

Ben and Clara and I lounged sleepily together on the sofa this morning, enjoying a rare moment of passive togetherness. Ben looked over at Clara, slumped down and earnestly sipping her milk with her belly protruding out of her shirt. He looked up at me perplexed. "Girl's don't have Bebos."

(Bebos = Belly buttons ala Sandra Boynton).

"No, Ben, they do. We all have Belly Buttons." We all lifted up our shirts and examined the proof of this statement.

"Ben..." I queried, wanting to relieve his confusion about gender specific body parts. "What is it that boys have that girls don't?"

He responded without hesitation.

"Cool toys."


We will now return to our regularly scheduled blogging break.

That's really funny! He's right - boys' toys are cooler than girls' toys. Transformers vs. Barbie - think about it.
