Tooth Fairy Where art Thou?

Big day at our house today. Beren couldn't quite make it to the first day of kindergarten before shedding teeth. He lies in bed as I speak, dreaming of the untold wealth accruing beneath his pillow. Earlier today he tried to convince me that said fairy leaves gifts as well as lucre. Nice try buddy! Gotta save something for Santa.

The Rice Crispy Rameumptom

So in my youth Sunday School class, we just got to the part about Alma and his bretheren going on a mission to reclaim the apostate Zoramites. When they get there, they discover the people have indeed gone astray and are worshipping by climbing to the the top of a tower (Rameumptom=Holy Stand), reciting a very unhumble "prayer" and then forgetting about God entirely until the following week. This was my idea to help the kids remember the story. Naturally we had to tear down that tower and consume it! One of them even tried to devour the Lego Zoramite, but I restrained him.

What Goes Through The Mind of a Five Year Old?

On the way to church today, we got the following two questions from Beren out of nowhere.

1) Is metal harder than concrete?

2) Is power invisible?

It's like he's secretly building a mad scientist's bunker and had a few things he couldn't work out just yet.
