we were at a little easter party and grant was being moody so i let him wander off to play alone in the playroom while the rest of the kids were doing the activities. we were fixing to watch a little clip of the easter story from the jesus storybook bible and i thought he may be into that so i bribed him downstairs by saying that we were gonna watch a show. he walked in the front room in full grump mode, took one look at the tv and said, "dat's not umi zoomi."
