Slapstick Week

Kid laughs are certainly contagious and Cameron has had a week filled with giggles.  It will be nice when he can understand humor beyond the slips and splats variety, but for now, he's a slapstick kid!
(According to Wikipedia: Slapstick is a type of comedy involving exaggerated physical violence and activities which exceed the boundaries of common sense.)  If you haven't seen this scene from The Rescuers Down Under (Disney Gold Classic Collection) , it is delightful and has started several in depth conversations about thinking and choices... that is, after the giggles are done :)

Other things to share:
This week's Objectivist Round up:

A poem I enjoyed, written by a friend... reflective, very wintery:

Cute antic: after informing me that he'd decided on my next surprise, he said, "It starts with L."
[Naturally curious after the jar of jalapeno olives was empty (he'd presented them to me three times as breakfast treats), I asked about the second letter of this new surprise.]
"Well, it's just leaves you know." 

[Properly intimidated about waking up in a pile of muddy foliage, I listened to his rambling thoughts with trepidation.]
"Go right out and hunt some leaves and then eventually, when there's a pilot around, we're going to sort out our leaves so there's an airplane in our house."

[Um, of course?!?  Nothing has come of this progression which occurred at the beginning of the week.  We did have a nice chat about how welcome he was to do leaf projects outside!]
