A friend passed this disturbing information along today, and I’m pretty bummed because I’m a big OJ drinker.

Oh, and speaking of April Fool’s, here is the funniest thing I’ve heard all week:
Wood Sprite, upon receiving a bowl of popped popcorn from me: “Mama, you’re the best chef ever!” Nice one, kid. Chopped is her favorite show right now; she wants to be a chef and insists that I call her, “Chefie.”

Another cute one-liner from her earlier this week, while hugging me: “I wish I could squeeze you forever!” 🙂

“Man, I Love Being a Turtle!”

turtleEvery time we go to rent a movie these days, my daughter wants the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles DVD–which, of course, she calls the “Inchy Turtles.” I’m always so torn–I loved them when I was a kid (maybe it’s genetic?) but after seeing them again, they seem really violent. I’ve settled for keeping them a now-and-then treat, something she can watch every once in a while, but definitely not as much as she watches Curious George or Ni Hao Kai-Lan (both at least weekly!).

Anyway, a great story on turtles today–I was pretty interested in how their shells are formed, and I hope you will be, too.

I also just wanted to say thanks so much for reading. Two of my articles, “The Best Paybacks Against Cartman” and “Don’t Mess with Russian Girls,” were the top-accessed articles last week, which makes me super happy (as Kai-Lan would say)! I really appreciate your readership. 🙂
