By the Littlest Ranger, age 3 days

Mom and I were doing fine in the hospital, just her and me. Then during something called "visiting hours" these two guys showed up. They are big and loud. The one named Daddy took me away from Mommy and held me and kept saying the same strange things over and over: "Soccer, Bicycles.... Soccer, Bicycles... Soccer, Bicycles." Then the one called Grandpa took me away from him and started saying over and over: "Pistol shooting, Sprint Cars... Pistol Shooting, Sprint Cars... Pistol Shooting, Sprint Cars." Who are these guys?

Then they talked about something called "a minor surgical procedure". Later last night it happened.

I don't want to talk about it.

But I DID notice the two big loud people who talked about it managed to be gone when it happened.

My only correction is that I was saying: “Books, Baptists, and Bicycles.” Everyone is happy that the baby is coming home after his final exam today. Mommy’s delivery is now famous in the hospital for having a natural birth without hollering, even once.

Hushai! Books, BAPTISTS and Bicycles? What about Books, Bible, and Bicycles...or how about God, Books and Bicycles? Let's get our priorities straight shall we? =) My hubby is glad you included bicycles, though.

As you should know Mid-kid, Baptists most important book is the Bible. It would have been redundant to write, Baptists and Bibles--just as it would be to write "he was cool a bicyclest." Some things are just assumed.

As we all know........REAL MEN and REAL BAPTISTS have NOTHING to do with any bicycle that doesn't burn gas and doesn't say putata putata putata. What's all this commy talk of "cool bicyclists"? The nearest we want to get to one is to include it as part of the grillwork on our 4x4 truck.
