"A Cup of Tea for Daddy"

I got this email today and thought it was way cute ....

Cup of Tea
One day my Mother was out and my Dad was in charge of me. I was maybe 2 1/2 years old and had just recovered from an accident. Someone had given me a little tea set as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys. Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of "tea" which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home. My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was "just the cutest thing!" My Mom waited and, sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up. Then she says, (as only a mother would know.. :) )"Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?"


What Animal starts with "X"?

We spend ALOT of time in the car. Parker reads a lot and LOVES it which is good since our DVD player broke and the boys can no longer watch movies as we are on our neverending commutes. However, one day Parker came up with a game he wanted us all to play. It's a little twist to the "Alphabet" game or "State" game that we have played over and over again.
We each took turns and had to come up with an Animal that started with "A", "B", "C", and so on. The first person that couldn't come up with one loses. Let's just say .. it's tougher than it sounds. What animal starts with "X"????
We have also done this with "Foods" and "Candy".
Boy - the things we do to entertain ourselves on car rides! :)
