Today, the girls and I finally got around to making the Shrinky Dinks Hadley got for her birthday.

Cameron colors her Shrinky Dinks while explaining the workings of the male anatomy.
While we were coloring, Hadley asked, "How are they going to shrink?"

"We're going to put them in the oven," I answered. "They shrink when they get hot."

"I thought they shrunk when they got cold," Hadley responded.

Before I could answer, Cameron chimed in.

"OH!!!" she exclaimed like she had something amazing to offer. Though I'm not quite so sure I'd call it amazing as much as disturbing.

"Like Jack's penis!" she says. "Like how Jack's penis shrinks when it gets cold."

Ok. I'm going to take away from this conversation just two things:

1. I need to be more considerate of what I say around the kids unless I want Cameron explaining shrinkage to her preschool friends, and...
2. ...I need to warm up the little fellas bath.
