Carrots for Michaelmas: Musings of a Catholic Wife, Mother, and Occasional Redhead

Mr. Cool Man

Just a quick note to say Happy St. Brigid’s Day! Here’s last year’s menu over at Feast!

I feel like this blog has been very Lucy heavy lately so here’s a few gems from the ever quotable Benjamin:


“What are taxes? Those spikey plants?”

“I think you’re thinking of cactus, Benjamin.”


“Did Jesus make gravity? Well, tell him to stop because I don’t like it when things fall down.”


His good idea of the week: “Star Wars reading nook.”


And on our way to the park yesterday he asked, “Can I wear Daddy’s bear hat so that I can be Mr. Cool Man?”

So many things about that statement crack me up. First of all, why does Daniel have that hat? Secondly, isn’t hilariously sad that Benjamin thinks it will up his cool factor? And thirdly, “Mr. Cool Man” just makes me think of Arrested Development when George Michael keeps calling himself Mr. Manager.

Oh, dear boy. With parents like us, it’s highly unlikely that you will ever be Mr. Cool Man.
