Comments for Stowaway

Stowaway: 12/07/04

Last night we found Sean's duckling (from the Make Way for Ducklings book) in the back seat of my car. Sean took a serious look at it and then noted, "This duck is a stowaway like Paddington Bear!" He then spent much of the rest of the trip home chastising the duck for stowing away in the car.

Gross Out Noises are Funny:

Sean's current idea of a funny bath time game is to first blow bubbles in a cup of bath water (while I say yuck and try to convince him to stop) and then to make pretend retching noises in a bucket until he giggles himself breathless. Eeew. Meanwhile I do my best to ignore him (as ignoring does lead to him stopping sooner) and quietly read my book. I'm currently reading Vanish with the Rose but during an especially dramatic scene with doorways and hidden passageways I just couldn't take Sean's gross out noises any more. He found my reacting even funnier.
