Chag Sameach!

The Purim celebrations have been underway since last week, starting with a visit by Molly to her alma mater on the Upper West Side for pre-Purim circus fun:

Then it was face painting and cotton candy at Kelly's school's Purim festival on Sunday:

Monday was Mordecai and Esther lollipops from Grandma.

So what does that leave for the big day itself on Tuesday? Tune in to BCM tomorrow to find out!

Two Ways of Looking at an Ant

Mom, Molly asks, can you open the front door for me. It is literally freezing cold out. Sure, uh why? I just gotta let this little guy go, that's all, and she shows me an ant crawling up her arm.

Mom!!!! Mom!!!!!!!!!!!!
I run up the stairs to Kelly's room.
What's up little bear?
There is an ANT!!!!!!!!!! On my bed!!!!!!!! Get it! Get it!
I get it with a tissue, and it is gone.
All gone, little pie.
Mom, there was an ant! An ANT!!! Are you SURE it's gone?
