Arthur (heading toward the electrified barbed wire): "What's this?" (Looks back with a 'Who, lill' ol' me?' expression.)
John (picking him up and setting him down in the next county): "What do you think it is?"
Other current tricks include
- demanding that we call various relatives long distance so he can speak with them for two seconds.
- saying "Puppy on!" while turning on the puppy sprinkler so he can run through it for two seconds.
- saying "Arthur making Library (or roses, or car, or pizza)" while he hammers on a wooden block for two hours.
Arthur likes the local park. It has a dangerous play structure on it. The front has a sculpture that looks just like basalt columns for the kids so they can climb about seven feet into the air. There's even a platform (behind Arthur) where the kids can climb even higher and go down a very long slide.
I'm glad it's there, because after about 90 minutes of running around the park, Arthur usually uses up all his extra energy.
