Bad words

Calvin has never really picked up bad words from me. He's said "dangit" a couple times and sometimes says "stupid." But he's pretty good about being corrected. Today was the first day he said "crap."
To Ike, "Don't leave that in the car because then there will be too much crap in here." On one hand, I'm glad it took him 5 1/2 years to imitate my terrible vocabulary. But now I feel like I've said it for so long that it's meshed into his brain. Dangit.

Cal and Mado at MOA

Mado had her 5th birthday this week. She had an all-girls tea party so the day of her party, Laura took Calvin and her to the Mall of America to ride rides. I'm pretty sure they both had a good time. Although Laura did tell me this story: Mado wanted to ride her favorite ride, the ferris wheel. Cal did not want to go on it because it was too high but Laura convinced him to at least stand in line. When it was time to go up, Cal froze and freaked out, so Mado was not able to go on it. She told Cal "My heart is broken." So there you go.
