I’d prefer not to acknowledge the fact that there appear to be large gaps in my blogging. It is hard to ignore, as the gaps are so…large.

For instance, Zach and Judah recently took a trip to Soldotna where they had a drive-thru lunch for the first time in Judah’s tiny life. A few days later, Judah informed me that she wanted “poop chicken” for dinner. After telling her that I did not know what poop chicken may be, she said, “you know, that poop chicken that Zach always buys me in Soldotna…with ketchup”! (if by always, she means, once…) Oh yes, Judah. Chicken nuggets. You want chicken nuggets for dinner? I don’t think she had ever previously encountered chicken nuggets…only the other non chicken type of nuggets that are not food and might also be known as, “poop”.

So, also never having been to McDonald’s until a friend recently took her there, she told me the other day that she would like to have lunch again at “Old McDonald had a farm – that really nice restaurant with the tables”.

And…she had a big argument with her small friend about a fish. Her friend said, “hey that’s Nemo!” and Judah said, “no, that is not a Nemo, that is a fish!” and the arguing ensued.
