Life with Bright is like living out a different episode of "Reading Rainbow" each day. Whatever book we've read last, we all become the characters in that book. Three days ago we were all cows. Bright's name was Mooey, mine was Cheese Ball, Daniel's was Bully, and Zion's was...oh yes, Ice Cream (although Daniel kept calling him Ice Cube, which made me laugh hysterically). Last week we were all birds, and after his bird bath each night Bright would request that I sit on him in the nest (bed) until he hatched. Since yesterday we have all been owls. Hootie (Bright) asked for Honey-Nut Mice for breakfast, his milk at lunch had mice in it, and he enjoyed two slices of Mice-adilla for dinner. Owls eat mice you know! Today Daniel had to inform Bright that it is not polite to hoot at old ladies. Through all of this, Zion has learned to moo, hoot, and flap his wings to "fledge." Let's hope he knows he is human.
