The Many Faces Of Larry the Cucumber.... how does he do that?
It's ironic really. I read post comment from Judy from a few posts ago and she encouraged me to not forget the sayings of my kids on the side bar. Fact is, I have to be real good at remembering when they say things and write them down right away so I don't loose them. Right after I responded to her, I went in to kiss Superkid goodnight.
First you have to know that tonight was the birthday party of his best buddy RW. RW got the playset for "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" for his birthday. Much to his delight. He and Superkid enjoyed playing with them the rest of the evening. Then, Superkid got home, and got into bed with his Veggie Tales crate that has the Jonah boat (similar since it also has the Pirates in the set) and his Duke and The Great Pie War Castle set in it. He was playing around with them in near darkness when I came in for kisses and hugs. He was telling me how Larry could change into these different characters (i.e. Larry Boy, Duke, and Pirate Larry). Then he said he did this by "swoosh!" changing in a telephone pole. "A telephone pole?" I asked. "Don't you mean a telephone booth?" "No, mommy, a telephone pole". So, I immediately had my new kid funny. I'll add it later to the side bar but I felt the irony of timing deserved it's own post.
All I can say is, it's a benefit to Larry the Cucumber that he is rather pole like himself. If anybody can change in a telephone pole, it may just be him!
