Zaya wanted to play video games, and when I hesitated in my response to his question, he said,
"Mommy, when you tell me to turn off Super Paper Mario, well then, I will just turn it off. I promise you that."

Has this kid figured me out or what? I still made him wait a while, but he was so cute, it was hard.

Right now Zaya is reading with Daddy and Sister. His new favorite book is Rosie and the Rustlers. He's never had much interest in the cowboy world before, but he's obsessed with this book. Of course, the words aren't typical Western fare:
"The boys thought this was fantastic and they waxed enthusiastic."
Every couple of pages we hear something like,
"Wait, wait, what does 'enraptured' mean?"

"waxed enthusiastic"?

In a kids book about cowboys?

Musta been written by a, a, a, YANKEE!

Or at least somebody with an edumacation.
