A change in plans

I woke up, way too early thanks to the short kid’s inability to stay hydrated during the night and constant need for water refills, but determined to draft a brilliantly funny blog post. But Good Morning America—with coverage of the bridge collapse and Robin’s breast cancer surgery—made me feel not so funny.

So, after the jump there are more of my favorite recent photos of my loved ones, including the four-legged furry ones. Under each photo is the dialogue that goes with it. Monday I’m going to get this blog back on track, maybe do some craft posts, revamp Ezmerelda’s role. Stuff like that. But check out the pics if you want, and have a good weekend!

Dad: Why did you turn left?
Tall Kid: You said my machine would go through anything yours does.
Dad: Yeah, but I only said that so you’ll get stuck and I can laugh at you.

Tall Kid: Fine. I’ll just roost Mom while I spin my way out.
Mom: Gee, thanks.

Tall kid: You should put that rock a little to the right.
Dad: I was building dams in brooks before you were even dreamed of.
Tall kid: Yeah, but they didn’t have Discovery Channel to teach you how to do it right back then.
Short kid: Did you even have TV then, Dad?

Jinx: Because I am feline, and therefore far superior to you, I do not need you to inform me the curtain is closed, thank you very much.

Gizmo: If you try to make this bed, I will destroy you with my demon cat eyebeams.
