I don't know why, but this old halloween photo of Anna creeps me out just a little. She looks likes just a little too intense for a two year old.

Samuel Owen Shaw: The destroyer

Originally uploaded by peteshaw.
On Monday, Kathleen comes downstairs to check on what Sam was doing. He had been left unwatched for a while. Just a little while. But he was bored.

Sam pulled a stool over to the refridgerator. He then opened the door, climbed to the second highest shelf, and took out a carton of eggs (yes eggs). Then he got down, leaving the door open, took the eggs to the den, behind the green chair, which is one of his favorite places to hide.

Then he began (and this is the best part) STEPPING ON THEM! How brilliant is that, if you are a bored three year old? Of course, mom was more than a little nonplussed when she found him.

I asked Sam about this today. I said, "Sam, did you step on some eggs the other day?"


"How many eggs did you step on?"

"Two and a half." He said.

... you're bound to get your hair cut.

A corollary to this is as follows:

If you spend enough time in the shower with Sam, eventually he is going to pee on you.
