I hear the ring.

Hold on just

a minute longer.


Crash! Bang!

OUCH!!


Race for the phone

Hello?


Daddy! Daddy!

Guess what?

Wanna know

What I did?


There was this

HUGE stawberry farm.

(In toddlerese, that's strawberry)


We went there and picked all the

Stawberries,

A bazillion, gazillion of 'em!


Then, then, then,

Guess what?

We went and

Saw all these

Cars!

They were

Really neat

Daddy!


Another crummy day

Uncrummied by...

My son.

When I was a kid

I HATED pancakes!

Especially syrup--

Sticky

Drippy

Icky


Fingers stick to grips

Yuck!


March...

...well as good as one can

with full body braces...


To the beat

of a different drum...


Come, He told me...


Pa rum, pa pum pum

Nothing to offer

but who I am.


All grown up...

Pancakes are awesome!


I love getting sticky.

Squish, squelch

Crackle, crunch

Slurp!

Crutches sink

In gooey muck

While white fuzz

Rolls

In muddy wet leaves.
