What Arlo thinks of his mom

I saw this interview-your-kid exercise on Facebook. I thought maybe I'd post it on Facebook, but since I've got this here Blogger machine hooked up to pipe my blog posts onto my FB page, I'm a-fixin' to kill two Internet birds with one stone.

What my kid thinks of me.

Sounds like he has it all figured out, all right. Maybe L will do this with Ava.

I love his responses, especially the one about how he knows you love him. That's faith, baby!

My verification word is: numpho. I find that amusing.

I like that you share your verification words with us. I am often amused by mine, too.

Right now I am about to type "vologie" to confirm my post.

That is just too cute for words! My Fave is Word Girl cartoon character. I can just imagine it now - it's kind of a nerdy superhero, no? That's totally you.

I don't know what would be better: if Arlo made up Word Girl, or if she already existed.

For the uninitiated, I give you:

That is all.

That is cute! Although I was envisioning more of a Sarah Vowell type with a cape and jaunty glasses.
