Brilliant Ideas

J is full of good ideas lately. I'm not sure where he comes up with them, but I like the way he thinks.

We did Halloween this year for the first time. I bought the kids pumpkin buckets to use for their treats. I explained to them what we were going to do with them. J suggested that instead of going out, we could hang the buckets on our front door and people could come and put money in them. Let's see, given the option between a holiday where you:
A. Go to other people's houses and ask them for candy, or
B. Stay home and let other people bring you money,
I've got to say, I'll take B!

Today while we were driving around, J asked me if he was the firstborn in our family. I told him he was. He then said H was the lastborn. I told him that she was the second born, but might not necessarily be the lastborn if God gives us another baby some day. That thoughtful boy then suggested that if we have another baby, Daddy should have it in his tummy this time. That way the bad veins which showed up in Mommy's legs while H was in my tummy won't get any worse. That was the best idea I've heard in a long time! It's about time the men in the family got their share of the saggy, bulging body parts too!

You need to start posting 'no liquid in the mouth' warning at the start of your post. I know, I know, if J is involved in the story, the no liquid thing should be a given - but some warning WOULD be nice - especially since Macs don't particularly like coffee!
