I’ve collected my 2009 Facebook “status messages” about my two youngest children, in order to inflict them all on you at once. My son is now 8 and my daughter nearly six.
Here they are, starting in January.
Daughter: “What color do white and white make? Light white?”
Daughter kept asking whether we were going to lick the liqueur at the Purim seudah.
Daughter: “Don’t touch my socks. I’ve worn them for a few days.”
Son wondered whether you have to make a bracha (blessing) on lightning when you see Harry Potter’s scar.
Me to son: It looks like you got up on the wrong side of bed. Daughter: He did. I saw him.
Son said the list of animals in the parsha (Leviticus 8) is like the class, Care of Magical Creatures, in Harry Potter
Son: Are you going to have another baby? Me: I don’t think so, I’m pretty old. Son: That’s what Sarah said too.
