Observations of a six-year-old

Last night we drove over to Santa's Village. The moon was just rising above the tree line, round and golden. When it finally got high enough for the kids to see, Ali observed- "It looks like ear wax."  (I see a poet in training.- or an ear doctor!)
This morning he got into bed where I was holding a sleeping Sami and got me to make him an origami fortune teller (also called a cootie catcher.) Then he started telling our fortunes. For Sami: "You will soon drink milk." And for me? "You will soon be feeding Sami." Those aren't exactly hard fortunes- they describe 75% of our daily activities!
