The Riddle

One of Sam's favorite books is a Winnie the Pooh book with riddles in it. Here he is reciting one of the riddles:



In case you can't make out what he's saying, the riddle is:

Q: What goes up when the rain comes down?
A: An umbrella!

After that Sam says "Oh, I like that!" just the way it's written in the book as if it is part of the riddle. He practically creates the illusion that he can read since he's memorized so many pages from his books. Particularly entertaining is when he "reads" car brochures talking about "Xenon Adapative Headlights" and "Active Cruise Control".

For his next trick, I'll try to get some video of him identifying car makes and models. He's dazzled the neighborhood with his uncanny ability to spot Honda Pilots and such from great distances- even in the dark.

I noticed your last two posts came from France...and before I had the chance to even finish reading them...my head started conjuring up all kinds of evil thoughts about how ridiculously unfair it was that you were in France when you just had a 2nd Baby in June. "How is she doing it!" I thought...and does Sam really EAT quail legs! Then I read on of course, and realized it was only Bob in France. Then my jealous rage turned to shame-on-me, and then to, "Poor Deanna has to stay home while Bob is in France!" Hope you are all doing well...your long lost friends in Cali. Monique and Eric
