Jeff: I'll be right back. Can you wait here?

Beck: Okay. I will bounce.

November 2010

Beck, in response to being a handed a small bowl of dry Cheerios: "How did you ever make this?"

Big Bird doesn't have a cape. He only has a tail.

I want the light down soft so my boogers can't see.

Sweet Dreams

Conversation Todd had with Beck while walking home. It was dark outside with a bright moon and one very bright star in the sky. The clouds were small and lit up by the moon and moving pretty fast as they passed over the moon. It was windy out.

Todd: It's the moon.

Beck: It's a crescent moon.

Todd: Wow! That's right. It is a crescent moon. That's very good.

Beck: It's moving fast.

Todd: Well, the clouds are moving fast. I think the moon is staying still.

Beck: Uh-huh. And the moon is moving fast.

Todd. Oh, okay. I guess the moon is moving fast too.

Beck: The moon is looking for the animals on the clouds.

Todd: (amazed) Wow. Really? The moon is looking for the animals on the clouds?

Beck: Uh-huh. Squirrels are looking for nuts.

Todd: Ha. Oh, yeah?

Beck: Yeah! Nuts wear hats.

Todd: Well, yeah...I guess they do wear hats. Little hats.

Beck: Uh huh.

Todd: But, the squirrels don't eat the hats. They only eat the nuts. Not the hats.

Beck: (confused look) Right.

We talked a little more. I got the sense that he thinks that there is more than one moon. Which makes sense to me.

Beck made up a song. Sing to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

Train, train, train, train, train, train, train, train,

Train, train, train, train, train, train, train, train,

Train, train, train, train, train, train, train,

Train, train, train, train, train, train, train,

Train, train, train, train, train, train, train, train.

While I was wiping Beck's face (admittedly against his will) he yelled, "I don't want you to do my talking face!"

Daddy: I need you to go to bed. Daddy's getting grumpy.

Something was wrong.

The End.

September 2, 2010

Out of the blue while lying in bed trying to sleep Beck said, "I love reading books and drawing on pieces of paper." I love my boy.

August 10, 2010

Beck woke up scared of the wind. Scared of the wind because of the dragon because the dragon is scary. The dragon is scary because Thomas needs to put the dragon away. And Elmo is right here.

July 20, 2010

Beck woke up screaming.

"I heard a big noise. I think it was a turtle. But I will drink my water and make the turtle go away."
