Deep Thoughts From Noah #88

Sometimes having a conversation with Noah can be difficult...most of our convos involve him re-enacting a segment from a movie or show. Or, he's asking me to listen to him mimic a cartoon character. However, recently, he's started asking me to play "Would you rather?" His pairings are often both interesting and creative and lead to better communication between the two of us.  I feel hopeful each time we play. Below are some of his recent ones...

Would you rather drown in hot lava or quick sand?

Would you rather be a mermaid or a bouncer?

Would you rather work at The Crusty Crab or The Chum Bucket?

Deep Thoughts From Noah #87

St. Louisans know temperature is temporary. In a span of a few hours numbers can fluctuate 40 degrees. While driving Noah to school he listened to the radio announcer share how the 55-60 temps we've been enjoying the last couple of days will soon be dipping into the 20's...to which Noah exclaimed, "What?! That's harassment!"

I loathe cold weather, however, I've never thought to call Mother Nature out on her offensiveness in that way...which made me want to put his thought into a sentence

Dear Mother Nature

I find your lack of temperature stability offensive. Please stop harassing St. Louisans.

Thank you.
