The Phi has hit a really cool age where she talks and you can actually understand what she is saying. Some of it is still a bit gibberish, but that's because she is slightly crazy. This morning as we were getting ready for work/school we were in the bathroom, she was brushing her teeth and I was putting on make up. She said "Hey Mom, nice eyebrows". "Thanks Dup" I said to her. Last week I went to a salon to get my eyebrows waxed. When I told her what I was doing I had to show her where her eyebrows (or really eyebrow in her case. Hello Frida!) were. Now she has had eyebrows on the brain. While we finished getting ready she was asking if certain things and animals had eyebrows.

"Mom, do fish have eyebrows?"
"Mom, do ducks have eyebrows?"
"Mom do chickens have eyebrows?"
"Mom, do kangaroos have eyebrows?"
"Uhhhhhh ummmmmm I'm not sure. But I will totally goggle that for you today"

Man what did parents do before google? Oh yea make stuff up. So I did and the first site to come up was Totally Kangaroo which was basically a site that deals with the controversy of 9/11 and bunch of kangaroo jokes. I don't get it either. So I went straight to the jokes and here is just a small sample.....

Why did the cheerleaders ask a kangaroo to join their squad?
They needed a good roo teen.

What's a kangaroo's favorite pizza topping?

Why are baby Kangaroo called 'Joeys'?
Because they are their parents' Pride'n Joey.

What do you call a kangaroo who greets female roos with raised eyebrows and a wagging cigar?
Poucho Marx.

So even though I am now armed with some pretty lame kangaroo jokes I still didn't have an answer for The Phi. So I did a google image search for "kangaroo eyebrows" ...

Well it doesn't look like he has eyebrows. But that beer looks tasty. But I did learn that Captain Kangaroo not only had eyebrows, but he had EYEBROWS....

It had been awhile but Joey recently convinced me to head out on an off-roading adventure. Mostly because the San Berdoo trail ends inside J...
