Okay Henry:

This will sound familiar. You are Mommy and Daddy's room, laying on our bed (on my side) watching TV. Digimon is on and Jack can't sit still. He is bobbing and weaving and walking right up to the TV and blocking everyone else's view. So you would say, "You make a better door than a window!" Then Jack would back up, maybe jump up on the bed, but 2 minutes later he was right in front of the set again. I remind you of this, like you could ever forget, because this morning you got a little payback. There was Jack laying on the couch in the family room while Joe stuck his nose right up against the TV screen. Jack cried out, "You make a better door than a window."

We learned about "payback" in Squirtle Squad and we'd say it all the time, remember. And the other thing we used to say is, "I've got a banana and I'm not afraid to use it," from Babar. Then we kept running into other movies or shows that used a variation on that saying, "I've got a 'blank' and I'm not afraid to use it. I'm going to try and remember the other movies. We'd also say, "You wanna piece of me," whenever we'd wrestle and tickle.

We went back to the zoo today. Jack had a program on otters, so Joe and I walked around for 2 hours until Jack was done. It was very warm and we had a nice time. Mom gets back tonight. I miss her.
