Every once in a while, my wife and I catch our daughter out of bed at 3AMish sculpting cupcakes or somesuch out of Play-Doh. We love her passion, but we usually send her back to bed. On the occasion of this drawing though, I gave her a ball of my Sculpey and taught her how to build armatures for more complicated sculptures. She made a “pet pig” named Waddly.

These were the kids’ first sundaes. “What’s a sundae?” Hot fudge, nuts, sprinkles, whipped cream! “Ugh, I don’t like nuts. I don’t want a cherry. What’s this?” That’s the hot fudge. “Fudge?” He poked at it like the brown goop I guess it really is. She didn’t want it at all. “Next time,” They asked, “Can we just have ice cream?”

Life is good and that’s the way it should be.
