How old are you mama?

"Nobody knows how old Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is.  She says she doesn't know herself.  She says, "What difference does it make how old I am when I shall never grow any bigger."'

-Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle by Betty MacDonald

The Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books are some of our favorites.  Today we needed a new chapter book and the kids all agreed upon Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle.  We haven't ready them in order and read one of the others first. 

The above quote was in today's reading and is how I often feel.  I never could keep track of how old my parents were and now I forget how old I am too!  It just doesn't seem to matter.  I'm as big or tall as I'm going to get.

I don't want to be called Tato anymore

Spencer and I were working together this morning in his bedroom.
Our conversation went like this:

Spencer: Mom, I don't like my name (nickname) Tato anymore."

Me: Ok, you want me to call you only Spencer now?

Spencer: Ah, no.  Lord Voldermort.

Beware folks,  Spencer aka Lord Voldermort is going to take over the world.
