Threatened with coal, Maddy asked Julie what it was, so she told told her it's a black rock people dig up from the ground and light on fire when they want to warm themselves. Now all Maddy wants is coal. Just now I got her to brush her teeth by warning she might not get any in her stocking if she didn't.

We did try telling her it's dirty and stinky. Just excited her further. "I want to be dirty NOW!"

This is either a Family Circus-level crap anecdote or a profound clue to why Trump won.

Kids are smart these days. I love Maddy stories.

Experimental psychologists like to make their kids do this:

Not because it can tell you anything about one individual, but because it is hilarious. We did it a couple weeks ago - Maddy spent like five minutes licking and gumming hers, which apparently still counts as a pass. Though her footage probably ties every other kid's, because every single video I've seen is great. Edited down, anyway.
