“Labor Day has as much to do with childbirth as Father’s Day does with Christmas.” -Avara   On the plus side, Avara met this Vet/Sage/Zombie Survivalist. We’ve both been seeing lots of posts about breakfast in bed for moms and “I labored for 34958735 hours with my kids.” Yes, it’s Labor Day everyone. Honoring the Merkan […]

“Daddy? How does Dark Vader eat?” -Lucas (2014, 5 years old)   To answer your question: the Disney store. That’s where we got these ridiculously amazing PJs. (ALSO IT HAS A TINY DETACHABLE CAPE!) There he stood, my little Dark Vader in his new PJs. My feelings were conflicted at first, the wincing inner nerd […]

Finn: “Will I ever die?” Me: “What do you think, bug?” Finn: “I never die. We start over, growing again from our skulls.” Me: “Does that mean I could be your son? And will you take care of me when I’m old?” Finn: “Yep. I’ll give you lots of kisses.” -Dad & Finn (2014, 4.75 […]

My Kid Just TEXTED… #53

Posted by on August 7th, 2014, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

The first “text” my youngest son sent me looked more like someone poured water on my wife’s phone. This was the first text exchange with my youngest son, Lucas, 5 years old. Well… the first one that made sense. Sort of. My two older boys were already learning advanced math when they got their phones, […]

Certain relatives, who shall remain nameless, reminded me shortly before my second son was born how much my brother and I fought as kids. While I wasn’t anticipating this with my little ones, I was wary somewhere inside. I remember feeling like there wasn’t as much attention available for me. But I wanted these two […]

“I gonna lay off food for a while.” -Lucas (2014, 5 years old)   Hearing this from my 5-year-old beanpole of a son was a definite “Wait what!?” moment. You see, saying “going to” implies that one isn’t already doing it. Since birth.   – Previous My Kid Just Said What a kid would do […]

Wife: “No, I don’t have a penis. I have a vagina.”   Son: “A bagina? Where does the pee come out???”   Wife: “There’s a… hole.”   Son: “In you butt?”   Wife: “No, the front… The fluffy part.”   Listening to my wife, Lizze, and my youngest son Lucas (5yo), I wanted to laugh […]

“You know what I would do if I had The Force? Tickle YOU for once.” -Finn (2014, 4.5 years old)  We started watching Episode IV: A New Hope of Star Wars awesomeness. Finn is in. All the way. He did way better than I even anticipated. After we finished our first round, he said this […]

“We should rename Arden. His new name should be Squeaky Cheeks.” -Finn (2014, 4.5 years old)  Coming up with Arden’s name was pretty difficult. I think choosing boys’ names is actually harder than choosing a girl’s for some reason. Not sure why exactly, but there’s so much history with a boy’s name for me. I […]
