Me: Why haven’t you put your shoes on yet?!
Salty: Because I’m looking for the cowwect sock? Is this the cowwect sock?
Me: Yes, that’s the correct sock. Put it on.
Salty: Okay, I’ll put it on. Is this the cowwect foot?
Me: Yes. Just get your shoes on.
This is Satly’s blue steel face, by the way.

Helpful Stranger: Your son has his shoes on the wrong feet.
Me (unimpressed): Correct.
Peppers using his mad counting skills this morning.
Peppers: Daddy! There are five potties in this house. There’s one potty upstairs, and another potty upstairs and another potty in Fluffy’s room. There’s a powder one down here where we eat, and one potty in the basement. That’s five! Four-fifty makes five. (Note, the powder room is on the same level as the kitchen, but nowhere near it.)
I don’t understand this four-fifty reference, but: Cowwect!
The above photos are from Viva Vienna, our town festival on Memorial Day weekend featuring the many iterations of a carousel carnival ride. This is the first year we have gone there. My kids enjoyed the rides though the crowds drove their stamina down to 4 or 5 rides each. Also the food was terrible, horrible, inedible and resulted in the following accurate observation.
Peppers: My bum says he’s getting his diarrhea ready.
The definite high point of the festival was watching one of my students compete as a semi-finalist in Vienna Idol. Cameron has a killer voice and musical instincts.
