Words of wisdom from the 5yo while taking a bath…
Me (laughing): What was that sound?
5yo: Do you see any bubbles?
5yo (seriously): Well, that means it’s not a fart.
We wanted to start the New Year off right, so we planned an around the island adventure. Unfortunately, the traffic gods determined that wasn’t to be the case. We still had lots of fun eating at a shrimp truck in Haleiwa, stopping at Dole Plantation to ride the Pineapple Express, and visiting Kukaniloko, a sacred site where ali`i were born. New experiences for a new year. In fact, my niece who kept telling me the whole way to Haleiwa, “We’re eating at the shrimp truck. We’re eating at the shrimp truck,” had a revelation when we arrived at Blue Water Shrimp. “Oh, my God…it REALLY is a shrimp TRUCK.”
I guess learning happens when you least expect it.
I told my 8yo to practice for as long as it took me to wash the dinner dishes. As I rinsed the last dish, he asked if he should practice a little more. I said, as gently as possible, “Oh, honey, you probably should. I didn’t quite recognize the tunes.”
Without missing a beat, he replied, “Of course not, Mom, they’re from other countries.”

A little late for the holiday season, but ImageChef is an interesting take on word clouds. There are other capabilities, but this was nice and quick. It took all of 30 seconds. Check it out!
