It Runs in the Family

Usually I think Elliott is a mini Dan. But, every now and again I see me in him

Me, circa 1982 (?)

Elliott (not sure what he is up to with his hands)

Not related to our obvious love of Mr. Potato Head glasses, here is a cute picture of the two of them.

Yesterday Elliott was hunting around in our TV cabinet. Here is an old picture of it, this is 4 years ago. All the electronics have changed...though, we do still pull out that old nintendo system every once in a while.

So, Elliott was climbing inside on the far right side, above the nintendo, with his flashlight. We have a box of toys there now, and he had pulled that out. This is the conversation we had:

Me: What do you see back there?
Elliott: A mouse

Me: What?! (trying to think of any mouse shaped toys we might have...)
Elliott: It's not a real mouse

Me: What is it then?

Elliott then pulls out a mouse, a computer mouse. I love it when my 2 year old proves me wrong...
