Lucky Charms

While watching Jimmy Neutron, an inevitable commercial break came on. Tyler seemed to be paying little attention until the ad for Lucky Charms cereal. At the end of the ad he instructed me to go to He wanted to have further adventures with the leprechaun, apparently. He told me he wanted to help the kids get some cereal.

"Tyler, I wonder why those kids find it necessary to steal the cereal from the leprechaun when they can just go buy it at the store," I mused.

His expression grew serious and he stated, matter of factly; "I don't think they have a Mommy and Daddy. They have to steal the cereal because they are hungry."

I was stunned. He is four years old and here he is, like a true philosopher, talking about loop-holes in the moral code. Stealing is wrong. But what if you are a hungry orphan child?

A few weeks ago, while watching the same show, Tyler made another astounding observation. Jimmy Neutron has his own rocket ship and was flying to a distant asteroid. The ship happens to be an open top convertible.

"Mommy! That's silly!"

"What is, sweetie?"

"Jimmy Neutron's ship! How can they breath? There's no air in space!"

Whoa. How the heck did he know that?!?!

I really need to make more of an effort to capture these frequent Tyler observations. He surprises me almost daily!

I left my heart...

Pink? Will you be my friend?

This has to be one of the best music videos I've seen in quite some time. I added Pink's latest video for "Stupid Girls" to my sidebar. Her lyrics (and the hilarious scenes in the video) mirror my own thoughts about several famous and quasi-famous females that seem popular with the kids these days.

All I can say is...dang I wish I were a fly on the wall of Paris Hilton's or Jessica Simpson's or other similar ilk's home when they saw this video for the first time. Ouch! and yet so accurate.

Somewhere Nelson is pointing and saying, "Ha ha!" (Anyone else a Simpsons fan?)

Silly Animal (aka Trampoline Kitty)

This week's Round Robin Photo Challenge topic is "Silly Animals". Do I have one? You betcha! I've been trying to catch Spartacus doing this for weeks now. I would swear he wants to emulate Tyler and use his mini-trampoline.
