I haven't done one of those Facebook lists in a while, and a couple friends filled this one out, so I thought I'd join in.  This list apparently comes from the BBC, who said that the average person has only read 6 of these.  Seems like a small number to me, but since the average American reads less than one book a year (or something like that - I saw a statistic once) maybe it is accurate.

11/6 - Noah and I were making rice krispie treats and Noah was stirring.  He asked for a marshmallow, but I said no, they had to go in the recipe and he could have one of the finished products.  Well, he decided to snitch and got a natural lesson.  I, only a few feet away in the kitchen, heard him screaming.  He had dipped his finger in the melted marshmallow to taste it!  I rushed him over to the sink and after a while of running it under the cold water, I made an ice bath in a bowl for him.  His finger turned out fine after a few minutes and he had learned a good lesson. (More)

11/1 - Jonathan, "My favorite color is green."  Noah, "My favorite color is green, too!"  Jonathan, "Faith, what's your favorite color?  Is it green?"  Faith, "No, flower."

11/1 - Jonathan lost his left front upper tooth!  He bit into a grape (boy, that tooth must have been ready!) at 1pm and the tooth was out at 5pm.  We can already see the grown up tooth showing through.  The matching front tooth is due any day now, I'd guess.

11/3 - On a Sunshine Math page, Jonathan was instructed to find the "value" of words using a code A = 1 cent, B = 2 cents, etc.  The last part said, "Your first name = ____" and he was not so happy that his name has eight letters in it.  But he did something harder and thought it was more fun anyway.  He added up y-o-u-r-f-i-r-s-t-n-a-m-e.  I accepted that as a correct answer. (:

11/3 - Jonathan, "In Japan a long time ago, they didn't have guns... they had shoguns!"

Faith is more often dry at night than she was before.  Last week she had four nights dry in a row!  Daytime is mostly the same.  She doesn't like to sit long enough for #2 so that usually ends up in the underwear.  But I'm taking it in stride right now and encouraging her to keep trying.  "I know" she says when I remind her. (:

11/5 - After a brief phone call with Mom, I related, "Grandma says, 'hi' to everybody."  Faith replied, with a bright face and excited voice, "Mom, hug!?"  She likes phone hugs from Grandma!
