In This Shire

Yesterday, Dominic was reading the comics and suddenly looked up at Gary.  With an incredulous tone of voice, he said, "Scientists call Pluto a dwarf planet?"

Gary responded, "Maybe it has a beard."

To which Dominic naturally replied, "And it's a natural sprinter!"

As if this were not enough to tell that our family is currently immersed in the Shire of Tolkien, a few hours later a dispute arose between the two youngest members of the household.

I was working diligently when I was set upon by two young hobbits asking that I resolve their disagreement.  What was their heated debate about?  Well, whether Legolas had a pony tail or a braid.  After much searching of the internet for pictures of the back of Legolas' head, I gave up and told my hobbits to get along.

I also have one sweet child who does not want to wear shoes because he says that he has hobbit feet. His feet, he maintains, are uncomfortable in shoes.  I completely understand.  All this time I thought I was a redneck.  Come to find out, I'm a hobbit.


  1. That is too cute. Our family is currently in the land of Hobbits, so I can relate :)


Please, be respectful. We're all friends here. We can disagree with respect.
