Goober: Mommy, I need to discuss something with you.
Me: This sounds serious
Goober: Yes, once you get mutated, you start to eat different things right?
Goober: Yes, like if you turn into a giant monster spider you might not really care about eating flies anymore like a little spider. You might just see some big animal that's just a bit smaller than you, and decide it looks good to eat even if you're really used to just eating bugs. Right?
Me: Uh well, I guess if you were a giant spider you'd need something more to eat than tiny flies.
Goober: Do you think if a giant spider was eating a cat it would suck out it's blood, or just eat the whole cat?
Me: Depends how long the cat's been stuck in your web I guess.
Goober: Giant mutant spiders don't need webs.
Me: Of course not, silly me.
In other news, Mooch CLIMBED OUT OF HER CRIB yesterday. Dammit I'm not ready for this! I know Goober was doing it at this age, but I was really hoping I'd be able to keep Mooch locked up a bit longer, because now I have to baby-proof the bathroom adjoining her room, put up a baby gate at the top of the stairs, install the thingamajig that converts the crib to a toddler bed to prevent her from breaking her head falling off of the crib bars....gah!
