last night cam and paul were playing with the nintendo ds. paul had the stylus. i was alarmed.

cam: show mommy how you draw on the magic paper.
paul: [squiggle]
me: yay. very nice.

paul then got up and started walking towards his little art table, stylus still clutched in his hand.

paul: magic paper! magic paper!
cam: no, the magic paper is over here. that won't work on real paper.
paul: [obviously ignoring cam] magic paper.

he finally got to the table and tried to write with the stylus on a sheet of paper.

paul: daaaddy! it's not working! magic paper!
cam: [silent laugh]
me: [muffled snort]

they start tuning us out really young, i'm learning.
