One of the better aspects of having a toddler underfoot is the opportunity to learn new things. The Spawn is obsessed with the written word and constantly asks "What that says?" Well, one of the recent subjects of that inquiry was a page of pictures and names of butterflies and moths. Somehow I really LIKE the name "Achemon Sphinx Moth". It rolls off the tongue nicely.
Of course, you also have the opportunity to learn how little time it takes for said toddler to completely dismantle the living room. The answer, in this case, is about the same amount of time it takes to fill out the patient intake forms for a dentist. It takes a lot longer to reassemble a living room, let me tell you.
Now the Better Half is in the the partially reassembled living room reading to the Spawn. We've just started on sight words--"and" and "the" so far. That means she's got a fifty-fifty chance of guessing right. I do think she gets it right more than fifty percent of the time though. There speaks the fond maternal unit.
Enough rambling, it's almost bed time.
