A few evenings ago, Mike and the girls were all taking turns making up riddles. They were mostly things like "What lives in the water and looks like a fish, but isn't a fish?" (Answer: a dolphin) Nice and simple. Everyday examples of 6 and 8 and 33 year old humor. Until...
Anya: What has seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns?
Mike and I stared at each other incredulously as Jaela and Macey shouted the answer in unison...
Jaela and Macey: The Satan dragon in the Bible!
Ahem. Yeah. Anyone up for a nice friendly game of Bible Trivia against my girls?

At Goodwill last week, as I was sorting through the bookshelves, Isaak sat contentedly in the cart, surrounded by a growing pile of books. He picked them up and leafed through them, one by one.
I: What's dis one about, Mom?
Me: It's a book for Mommy and Daddy about Wilbur and Orville Wright, the men who invented the first airplane.
I: Oh. (pause) Is Amela Ehhaht in it?
Yeah. He knows about Amelia Earhart. And he's still only two.
