The Wild Rumpus was


The Bunny got restless and didn't make it through the whole movie.
He said it was boring.

The Dolly snuggled up under my arm and held my hand.
She said it was violent.

And me?

I cried...

Fantasy for five, please

The Bunny Rabbit and the Dolly Llama have discovered the pleasures of the local library.You can go in there and get books for free! They had never seen such a wondrous thing.

Several days ago I took the Bunny alone because Dolly had a previous engagement (oh, the social life of a seven year old). He was looking for a book about Alien Invasions. Not nearly the expert he had hoped for I enlisted the help of one of the librarians. She took us over to a section where we saws books about planets and solar systems and universes.

The Bunny was unmoved.

She took us to another section that had child friendly fiction about E.T.-esque books.


Then Bunny was less than impressed.

Eventually I sent the librarian away thanking her for her time.

Finally I got to the bottom of all this...

'Mom, I want a book about REAL Alien Invasions with photos.'

Letter in Mothers Day Card - May '02

Dear Merrily,

Looking through Mother's Day cards, I didn't find many
that applied to us. There were a lot of joke cards and
a lot of cards that thanked moms for cleaning dirty socks
or making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches just right,
but none that said what I wanted to say to you, except
for this card.

"Mother's love is the first gift we know -- and we never
outgrow." My whole life I've been told that somebody
loved me enough to give me away and somebody loved
me enough to take me. I feel like my whole life has been
an extension out of the first love given me - yours.
So even though I've thanked you for this before, I am
thanking you again. Thank you Merrily for my love filled life.

I have to admit that with all the love and gratitude
I feel for you, while writing this, I'm feeling a little sad.

I'm feeling sad because it seems like we're both so busy
and we never have time to talk, let alone see each other.
I miss you, that's why I'm feeling a little sad. So I'm going
to talk to you more and plan a trip out to Atlanta when
it's good for both of us. I still have to meet Bunny and Dolly!
And I'd like to spend some semi-alone time with you
(I know you've got your hands full :).

Congratulations, again, for having the kids.
I know you'll be a wonderful mom to them.
And thank you for everything.

Talk to you soon!
