94/365. dang the Easter Bunny left a super passive aggressive note for odin this year.

after 10.75 years the jig was up. odin went to bed and said, “you know, someday you’re going to *have* to tell me the easter bunny, santa claus and the tooth fairy aren’t real.”

he’d noticed Incongruities for a few years that raised A Few Questions. Serious Doubts emerged after the topic came up in the hockey locker room and none of his teammates believed in any of it anymore. a few months ago he was reading a judy blume book ( i forget off hand which one ) and the characters just flat out talked about santa not being real WITH NO SPOILER ALERTS?! the clock was ticking and he had recently started up with The Questions.

after he went to bed i wrote a note in jest. obviously in my handwriting ( after years of trying to conceal it ) and with a reference to a recent scrabble game that would surely give it away.

in the morning, it turned out that he wasn’t quite as sure as we thought and the humor of my note was maybe not so humorous :-( he was bluffing, sort-of. i think he really knew but still some part of him didn’t want to believe.

in the end he was a little sad but i think also a little happy to realize he’s A Big Boy.

when all was said and done he only asked,

93/365. The Girls, er, Egg Frida On.

93/365. The Girls, er, Egg Frida On. I.

The Girls, er, egg frida on to help them escape from the chicken run. They “talk” to her and if we don’t catch her she’ll move the logs and dig under the run or gnaw at the metal mesh to create an opening big enough for them to escape. She never tries to eat them. She just wants them TO BE FREE!

We do let them out into the yard but not as much as they want :-)

93/365. The Girls, er, Egg Frida On. II.

it’s a little hard to see but this is one spot in the mesh where frida is gnawed an opening that we’ve had to repair.
