Don't Forget Space Shuttles

Quick reminder of two giveaways here and here.


As I was walking through the school today, Mister Man's principal called out to me:

Michelle, I want to talk to you about Mister Man.

My heart sank. Apparently the look showed on my face, too.

Oh no, she said. It's not like that. This is a little story I wanted to share about what he said to me.

As the students were heading out the door to go see the Peter Pan play for their field trip, the principal was waving good-bye to them all.

Enjoy the play! she called to them. Say "hi" to Peter Pan for me. Have fun flying with him!

Mister Man turned to her through the crowd of students, a very serious expression on his face. He waved his finger at her, and his voice was exasperated.

Dr. L! That's impossible! Flying isn't real. The only way you can fly is with an airplane, a helicoptor, or a blimp!

She burst out laughing. I did, too, as she told me the story. This? This is his personality in a nutshell. It absolutely captures him perfectly. I love my Mister Man!

Sounds like he needs a magical sprinkling of Pixie Dust. ;)

Mister Man sounds absolutely adorable. And he forgot hot air balloons!

WHEW! It's a relief to hear the GOOD stuff.

Cute story.

He is really smart! Funny :) You have some entertaining conversations in your lovely family.

Alexis - I know. They always have the most interesting perspectives on things, don't they?

Karen - I think so, too. Except he's informed that it isn't real and it doesn't *really* work. He's killing fairies left and right here.

Megan - Oooo you're right, he did! I'll have to let him know.

NYC Girl - I thought so... glad to know I'm not the only one.

WeaselMomma - Hmm. Not quite sure how to take that one. ;)

Tracey - No kidding! I need some of the good stuff every once in awhile.

Kelly - I know, I know. They're a funny bunch. It definitely keeps me on my toes.

A scientist in the making!

Pat - He absolutely is. He reads SO much nonfiction. And right now he's doing a space camp and LOVES it.
