Look at my cape!

What about this weather?  It's freezing, it's scorching, it's windy, coyotes are running around in broad daylight and our dog is trying to apply makeup.  It's nuts!
Theron asked for new pajamas because he's cold and that means it's actually cold - Theron's normal uniform is underwear only.  I took him to Target and he picked out a Batman outfit with a cape.  The sticker on the front said "Look at my cape!"  We took the sticker and put it on Oli who licked it off then ran away.  Theron put on the jammies and showing off said "Look at my AAAARRRRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!" as the static cling sent a searing jolt into his body.  I laughed a lot.  Theron did too after he ripped the cape off his body. 
Also at our trip to Target Theron negotiated the purchase of new toys by promising to buy them himself.  When I tried to collect at home he gave me a sob story about how little money he has now, then he tried to negotiate an allowance by which he would pay me back, effective today, and oh, yeah, the first installment should actually be bigger.  I walked away with $10 out of $15 and I'm happy to have it.  I can't wait until he becomes a lawyer and we can beg him for a big house and two new cars.  I suppose we'd better stop holding him back, though.
In the car he said to me, "Dad told me about kids who - it starts with an "a""
"Yeah. I'm glad I'm not that"
"I'm more bombastic"

My Funny Valentine

Dear Parents,
You've helped me so much but sometimes I can't help feeling your (sic) holding me back.  CHEERS!
Love, Theron 
You make me smile with my heart. 
Which leaves my feet free for stepping on your cape.

Home Alone

When you give a dog a tube of paint
 He'll give himself a home manicure
I told him we could tell he's color blind because no one is wearing terracotta this year.
