There is no talking to Lyle.

That much is for sure. After he ate my Number 8 Dale Jr. Chevy Matchbox and then threw it up and most of the paint came off of it, he said he didn't know anything about it! Téodor said Lyle might act this way. He explained about how when adults drink all kinds of cocktails they sometimes do things they regret but don't remember.

The more I learn about stuff adults get to do but that kids can't do, the more I don't want to be an adult. Adults drink dangerous cocktails like what a villain would secretly make James Bond drink, and they have to pay Car Tax (Chris is always mad about this), and when there is a problem they have to fix it or they can be arrested.

Oh, it's two o'clock! I am going to sit on the sunny part of the deck. Bye! I love you!

I need advice.

Chris was putting all the stuff from the dishwasher away, so I went in to help him. He always lets me sort all the silverware from the washer-basket into the drawer, so it's kind of my job, and I do it pretty good. Instead of an allowance he says that this summer he will make me some popsicles using Grape Juice! He knows that that is my favorite juice, after apple and cranberry.

Then a weird thing happened! I was putting away the spoons (there are two kinds of spoons: larger ones, which go on the left side, and regular ones, which go next to that) when I saw my Number 8 Dale Jr. Chevy Matchbox in the washer-basket! Most of the paint had come off! I was so mad I almost cried, and Chris asked me how come I was almost crying. I showed him the car and he said that Lyle ate it and then threw it up, so he decided to wash it off for me.

I am very upset with Lyle. I think I might see if I can ask him for a new one. I will ask Téodor if this is what to do, because he is honest and he will always tell you the right thing to do.

I need to admit that I did a bad job.

That's what Téodor said when he saw how I behaved after I got to eat my first bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

I wanted to be so careful and prove that I was ready to handle sugar cereal, but I guess really I was not. I am very ashamed of what I did. I did not do a good job of handling myself. Téodor is right.

I don't want to talk about what I did. It was bad. But I guess the only way to get better is to confess. Okay, here is my confession. Remember, I am not proud of what I did, when I jumped all around the house after eating the cereal and I acted like the whole place was my own personal rumpus room.

I...I jumped up on the couch and I said the S word.

I am getting older now so I can have sugar cereal.

Téodor says that since it is a new year and I am a little older, he thinks I can have sugar cereal once in a while. I know that this is a big responsibility and that I need to take it slow. I asked Téodor what a good sugar cereal to start with is and he said I should try Honey Bunches of Oats. It is a cereal that is on the border between super healthy and a little sugary, so it is just right for me. I only want to do the right thing, so I am being really careful after I eat it not to act silly or get out of Hand. So far I have been pretty lucky and it has been easy to behave. Téodor says that once I have finished the box of Honey Bunches of Oats I can move on to Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which is almost completely a sugar cereal. I hope that I am ready when that time comes. I only want to do the right thing.
