Crocodile 101

Crocodile 101

My son and I had a conversation a few weeks back that went a little something like this. Him: “Did you know that, if it’s hot crocodiles are girls and if it’s cold crocodiles are boys?” Me: “I don’t think that’s how it works. If you’re a boy you’re a boy and if you’re a girl you’re a girl.” Him: “No, listen I’m trying to teach you something.” Me: “Don’t get smart.

Easily Adaptable

We are all different, unique and individual. Some of us are tall, others short; others of us are boringly average. Some of us are outgoing; others of us are quiet, and some of us fall somewhere in the middle.
