Five Signs My Children Are Becoming Amazing People

  1. Daughter: while packing lunches for school for her and her two brothers she exclaims, “Tomatoes! Oliver will just gobble them up!”
  2. Son: after recently completing a report on fungus, bursts into tears when he sees a woman kicking over every mushroom she passes. He then explains to me how each of those fungi no longer can reproduce.
  3. Daughter: on the way to school we are listening to the Beatles “When I’m Sixty-Four” and my daughter says, “Hey! 64 is the cube of 4!”
  4. Another Son: “I got all my spelling words correct because I read a lot and reading books is the best way to learn new words.”
  5. Son: after adding up the remainder of funds left after purchasing souvenirs at the zoo, he reads about making a donation to Children’s Hospital and decides we have just enough to make the purchase. What an amazing look of happiness on his face.

    In the photo, what is the container that has a picture of a monkey (?) on it? I’m always looking for non-plastic options so was just curious (although maybe it’s simply a yogurt and not some awesome plastic free container that I don’t yet know about – heh).

    BTW the mushroom story is too funny. Or in Oliver’s case, sad. Awesome.
