on the way home from school today as i quizzed her over the details of her morning, violet said, "HEY! stop talking!" which isn't unusual these days. then she said, "you're MEAN to me. i'm going to boil you into CANdy." after saying she was going to boil me into candy four or five times, she might have mentioned something about proceeding to eat the boiled candy.
i'm not sure if this should be blamed on another child or too many episodes of "how it's made."
we went trick-or-treating at the arboretum yesterday. maybe i'll post some photos. i should throw this journal out the window for the level of angst it causes me when i think of the things i have failed to post as a dutiful mother.
