Sleeping with one eye open

Conversation with my 3 1/2 year old during bedtime.

Audrey: Mama, could you scratch my back?

Me: Sure honey.

Audrey: Where's my alligator toy?

Me: Right here.

Audrey: It's alligator's bedtime too.

Me: Is he going to sleep in bed with you?

Audrey: Uh huh. Put him by my feet. And in the morning, him will eat some food.

Me: Oh yeah? What do alligators eat?

Audrey: People.

Gators are the creepiest things around as far as I am concerned!

Smart girl. It's good that she's learning gator vigilance early, with a mock gator. Tell her never to let her guard down.

Maybe tell her they only eat Awanas.

My son's favorite toy when he was a baby was this enormous rubber lobster that my brother had gotten me a few years before as a gag birthday gift. Later, he saw a Geordie Laforge action figure at a store (he'd been watching reruns of Star Trek: The Next Generation with me) and asked me to buy that, and for a long time that's what he'd bring to bed with him. Funny, the toys they pick as their favorites.

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
