Elmo in the White House

Snookums and I are big fans of that Sesame Street episode where the First Lady plants a vegetable garden with Elmo and some racially balanced toddlers. So the other day when I was trying to convince Snookums to eat her salad, I said, "Eat it all up so you can grow up big and strong like Mrs. Obama."

"Where's Mrs. Obama?" Snookums asked.

"She's in the White House," I answered.

"What's she doing?"

"She's having dinner with the President," I said.

Snookums shouted, "She's having dinner with Elmo!"

I Am A Man

Recent conversation with Snookums, now 2:

Snookums: You a little baby.

Joan: No, honey, I'm all grown up. I'm a woman.

Snookums: You a man.

Joan: No, I'm not a man, honey. I'm a woman.

Snookums: YOU A MAN!!!!
