Mickey Mouse Or Oatmeal?

Well, I never thought the words "Mickey Mouse" sounded anything like "oatmeal," but when Henry says them they somehow seem the same. It's pretty cute. Henry's been into Mickey Mouse's Clubhouse on the Disney Channel. We thought he was always saying "oatmeal" when in fact, it seems, he's been saying "Mickey Mouse" some of the time. Meg brought out a stuffed Mickey last night to regive to Henry. Henry immediately said "Mick-me" (oatmeal is "mit-me") and "Tar-tar." Translation: "Hey, a Mickey Mouse doll. Did that come from Target?"

Last night he also said, "Friend. O. (Owen)" We asked him, "who else is your friend?" He said "In. (Evan, his cousin, could also be Liam, his other cousin, Henry's word for them sounds similar)"

I just finished searching a big batch of pennies last night. There weren't many Wheats in the bunch. 11,700 produced thirty Wheats, sixty-seven Canadians and seven US dimes. The Wheats were:

1930, 1937, 1938, 1940, 1941(2), 1942, 1944, 1944S, 1945(2), 1946D, 1948D, 1951D, 1952D, 1954D, 1955(2), 1956(3), 1956D, 1957, 1957(7)
