My Kid Just Interrupted… #13

Posted by , under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

[Talking at dinner, our 3yo interrupts]

Lucas: “Mouskerdee MOUSKERDOOOOOO!!!”

Lizzie: “Lucas, we’re talki—”

Lucas: “Wus DAT!?!”

Me: “It’s turkey, man. C’mon, we’re talkin—”

Lucas: “I do NOT wike it!”

Lizzie: “Yes, it’s a different kind, but it’s still turk—”

Lucas: “I pooping in my underwear.”

Lizzie: “Come here, let me check.”

[She pulls open his waistband and, as if she pulled a string on his back, he rips a thunder fart]

Lucas: “See. Das poop.”

[She changes the unlucky underwear and returns]

Lizzie: “What were we talking about?”

[I shake my head in wonder, as well as to say that I have absolutely no idea what we were talking about]


Knock knock. Who’s there? Interrupting Lucas! (Yes. That’s bubble wrap in his hands. Long story, don’t ask.)

Ahhhhhh, little kids at the dinner table. Or anywhere.

Deep breaths. They’re not only your constant companion as a parent of a toddler, they’re something to do to occupy your time when your kid slices what you were saying to ribbons. Brightly colored ribbons that swirl around like a French-Canadian circus act. Leaving you mystified, unsure what’s coming next, and occasionally questioning the price of admission.

Happy Thanksgiving, you wonderful HowToBeADadoids!

    Last year my child was the only verbal one at the Thanksgiving table. I feel it in my loins that with FIVE interrupters gathered around the feast this year, I’ll be churning out a similar post…with WAY more poop.
