Your Love is Like the Morning Sun

On our way home from the grocery this evening, Brendan shouts, "Look, Mommy! The sun is cracking the sky."

Sure enough, the heavy grey clouds had broken apart and the pale yellow sun was brightly and blindingly shining through. We talked about the sun for a minute and then Brendan asked if the sun was breaking up the clouds because it wasn't ready for bed yet. He then asked me if the sun had a mommy who made him go to bed.

I laughed and explained that the sun doesn't really go to bed and then explained how the Earth rotates and revolves around the sun, etc. So then, Brendan asked me if the Earth was the sun's mommy. He was laughing and knew he was joking, but I just thought it was kind of sweet somehow.

Flight of the Conchords Ep 3 Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros

If y'all have never watched the new HBO show Flight of the Conchords you really need to give it a go. It's seriously one of the funniest things I've seen in a long, long time.

I understand comparisons will be made to Tenacious D, but I find these cute kiwis much funnier, easier on the eye, and less offensive than the D.

Here's a song from episode 3, Mugger, of the series.
