NonOmniscient Internet - by Brad

Today Wesley and I were looking at a bird's egg in our backyard and he wanted to play with it and take it inside. I told him that we didn't want to move it because I wasn't 100% sure that there was no baby bird growing inside (although I am pretty sure it was abandoned).

Later Wesley said to me, "Maybe you should look online to see if there is a baby bird inside that egg."

I wasn't sure how I could get our computer to analyze this specific egg, but Wesley thought it was worth a shot. Maybe we need to rethink how much all-knowing-ness we credit the internet with.


Also... never tell your 4-year old what he is getting his mother for mothers' day... at least not if you want it to be a surprise for her.

So Wes spilled the beans huh!?! That cracks me up! Way to go Wes! You've got the same secret keeping abilities that your aunt Amy has. :)

I don't think Lindsey fully believed Wes, so it didn't totally ruin the surprise. I gave Wes a litte talking to, so I think he learned his lesson because later he teased Lindsey that we got her some other things.

I think he enjoys the allowable lying.

I remember someone else giving away gift surprises (umbrella and earrings). It must run in the family.
