From July 2013

Is there a city with better detective stories than LA? Only London comes close.

We've discovered the trick to getting the kids to fall asleep while reading to them. Read from Kipling.

Civil war in Egypt. The beneficiary is the player with the most unit points left in storage. (Civilization board game joke.)

Sarah is going away for three days, so it's just me and the kids. I promised her that I would not take the kids to McDonalds more than six times while she's gone.

Felix just pointed at the words on his shirt (which reads 'Mama's Boy') and told me that it says 'Dragon-Fire'.

Kids are in bed and I'm having a drink.

Relia is upset that a children's show is showing tortoises and sea turtles together as if they're both turtles. How dare they!

Kids are in bed and day three of single parenting is done. For the record, we only had fast food once.

Looking at titles on Netflix and saw one called 'Why Ships Sink'. I asked Relia why she thinks they sink and she said "because they're *way* heavy!".
I bet she's right.

For my fellow travel agents: Does The Queen hold a passport?

A. As a British passport is issued in the name of Her Majesty, it is unnecessary for The Queen to possess one. All other members of the Royal Family, including The Duke of Edinburgh and The Prince of Wales, have passports.

(From the FP Gal) I sent my not quite 6 year-old to her room. She slammed the door and is now blaring her lullaby music. smile emoticon Peder thinks we need to tell her to "turn down that music!" just to complete the picture.

Watching Dumbo and Felix just asked 'who delivers the baby storks?'.

Lessons from watching the guy ahead of me at SA this afternoon: 1) you can't buy beer with a non-US passport at an SA. 2) If you call the woman at the counter crazy, she will call you crazy too.
