Outnumbered, Again!

I know all of you are concerned about P and her precious Louis/Chico/Crazy Dog/Chico vom Talhof/Salami Thief. The news is...they are friends again. While P was playing with him on Thursday morning, I 'reminded' her that they were no longer friends:

Me: Hey, why are you playing with Louis. I thought you were not friends anymore. *yes, I call him Louis, too (another battle lost)*
P: We are friends again because he said sorry for eating my salami.
Me: I didn't hear him say anything.
P: You didn't hear him because he was talking to me.
Me: Oh...
P: I heard the bathtub say some bad words. Do you want to know what it said?
Me: NO!!!
P: Can I have a girl kitty?
Me: No, you can not have a kitten right now.
*About 5 minutes later, P comes to me holding The Dog with all the Aliases*
P: Me and Louis need to tell you something.
Me: What is it? *half paying attention*
P: Louis and me are sad with you because you won't let us have a girl kitten.
Me: Ok...


Once again, the battle lines have been drawn, and I'm out numbered. This is precisely why I don't want any more kids...I KNOW they'll be 'plottin' on me!
****************************************************

At what age does a child learn to add? One night after her bath last week, P announced to me that could do 2 plus 3. I asked her to show me, and she did, using her fingers. I asked her where she learned, and of course, she said 'I don't know'. I 'quizzed her with a few problems, and she got them right. I have NO idea where she learned.

I'm glad she didn't say Louis taught her.
*****************************************************

Right after work, we are leaving to go to the home of the World's Biggest Gang. I will stay for the night, and get up WAY before sunrise to drive another 1.5 hours to class a the Soon to be World's Second Biggest Air Base. I will stay there Saturday night, because class also meets Sunday morning. While I'm in class playing SIMS and watching DVDs learning stuff, P will be cruising the Rhein River, hanging out at IKEA, and missing me (yeah, right!)
.
****************************************************

I have yet another question for you folks out there in blog land...Savings' Bonds...to buy or not to buy?

I have been buying Savings' Bonds for P since she was a year old (2 $100 bonds a month). I plan to use the bonds to assist in funding her college education. I also donate fundage every month to her 529 Account (College Savings Plan). Her 529 account is doing pretty good, but the bonds are slow going. Should I continue to invest in the bonds? I'm think I will stop the bonds and put the funds into her 529. What do you think?
****************************************

Have a great weekend, and do something nice for someone!
