Ha! This is what Bilbo meant in your Mathom story! Priceless! :D

Author Reply: Yep. He and Siggy had some very interesting times together, LOL!

*snerk* Well, you canít blame Siggy for trying. Thatís a lot of farthings he could have earned if they hadnít been caught!

Author Reply: Oh, but imagine their poor bruised faces! Poor dears, I think they might have learned that teeth don't come out quite that easily, LOL! But yes, Siggy does sound like quite the little entrepeneur!

Trying to knock each other's teeth out! I had a feeling that was behind it!
Lads eh!

I loved Belladonna being 'economical' with the truth! My friend's daughter went away for a week with the school and sent her mother a series of postcards which were very similar! The truth only came out some months later.

Author Reply: Yes, well, there is no need to upset the "parental units" unnecessarily, right? *grin*

The first I have read of this series for Mother's Day. I love it. All the tales are precious. I enjoyed a peek at little Bilbo, the dear! :D Hugs, Neilia

Author Reply: I'm so glad you enjoyed it, dear! I have fun writing young hobbits!

And I think Bilbo must have been a very sweet little hobbitling!

Lads will be lads, won't they, whether little men or little hobbits.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: They will indeed! *grin*

This was adorable! The reasoning of children can be so funny. An absolute delight to read...and Happy Mother's Day!

Author Reply: It can! Kids do learn logic, but it tends to be rather skewed! And sometimes the things fathers tell them isn't much help, as Bungo learned!

The look of shock on her husbandís face was priceless. Belladonna had to fight down the urge to burst out in laughter.


Never underestimate the imagination, or should we call it inventiveness, of children! I think Bungo learned a lesson, too ;-)

Happy Mother's Day and Whitsuntide (I hope the translation is correct, in Germany it is called "Pfingsten".)

Author Reply: Well, or what passes for "logic" with children.

I think Bungo's learned to be careful about Baggins traditions, anyway, LOL!

Happy Mother's Day to you as well!

Over here, this day on the church calendar is called "Pentecost Sunday" (at least by Methodists), but personally, I like the old-fashioned sound of Whitsuntide better!

Makes me wonder how us Mom's survive our childrens childhood, though some of them aren't much better when they are grown!
More please,

Author Reply: It's tough, isn't it? But worth it, especially when the grandchildren come along! LOL!

As the bunnies bite!

Oh, Dreamflower--I'm laughing hysterically along with Belladonna! Who'd a-thunk? Oh, but this is priceless! Just hilarious, and so in keeping with children!

Author Reply: Kids *do* get the darndest ideas sometimes, and they seem perfectly logical to them at the time. I will never forget my son and his friend, at 5, hiking off out of the subdivision and some distance along a major road to look for treasure--leaving me and his grandparents frantically searching for them! And why? Because they'd found a shovel. And if they found a shovel then there *had* to be treasure somewhere...
