Ethan tried out "Mom" on me tonight. "Can I watch TV all day, MOM?" he said, with a wiggle of his eyebrows and a sly grin.
"I'm Mommy," I replied.
"But Sid the Science Kid calls her Mom, and he said, MOM can I watch TV all day? And Mom said, no, that's not healthy for your...buns. You have to exercise."

Later on he tackled the conundrum of how to get to The Backyardigans' house (because they really miss him). He came up with two options: 1) He pilots a plane, I copilot, and we fly there, or 2) We buy a Backyardigans book.
I thought option two was most reasonable, but then he stipulated it must be a magical book, with sparkles, that we could jump into and play with the Backyardigans. So. Maybe the plane one.
