Bear’s Belly Laughs

While prepping for his “Wii-Fit exercises”, Bear piped up, “Mom, I put my chapstick on because it helps me think better and do things better. It’s going to be an a-MA-zing workout!


While “helping” Brian with grilling, Bear pulled his toy grill out on the deck. At one point he came in, leaned against the counter and wiped his brow. “Grilling is hard work, Mom. I’ve been working so hard.

I grinned, “You’re grilling up a storm, huh big guy?

He cocked his head, turned to go back out the door and said matter-of-factly, “No, Mom. I’m grilling burgers.”


After we read The Three Little Pigs for the umpteenth time, I asked Bear what lesson he could learn from the book. His response?

If the construction workers were lazy and didn’t build our house strong, then while I was playing the big, bad wolf might come and blow our house down, and then I couldn’t play anymore, and we’d have to run away, and you can’t run very fast, Mom.


At lunch one day, Bear was asking all about what animals ate. We finally got to mountain lions, and I was telling him how they eat deer and elk and small mammals like foxes and porcupines and rabbits. Bear listened intently, then asked.

“But what happens if the lion is struck by lightning before he catches his prey?”

Huh. Hadn’t really thought of that.
