Also, a few random news items:
~Carson says he wants a pogo stick for Christmas. I have no idea where he even learned how to say that, let alone understand what it is. When he first told me, I was with my mom and we looked at each other skeptically. "What is a pogo stick?" I asked, thinking he had no idea. "Well..." he said thoughtfully, "...you put your feet there....and you grab on...and then...you BOUNCE!" OK! I acknowledged to myself. He knows what one is! But still don't think he's going to get one.
