“Wake up wake up good mohning! It’s fwee five eweven o’cwock. You can cwose yo eyes again, I’m done tawking. G’night!”-Lucas (2014, 4.5 years old)    It’s 35:11 o’clock. Do you know where your good night’s sleep is? I probably mumbled something really intelligent like: Whu? Whu time’s it? Whu’s hmmmrphumph still dark… mmrphh… back […]

“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 […]

“No! I can’t be quiet!! I HASTA BE WEALLY, WEALLY WOUD WIGHT NOW!!!” -Lucas (2014, 4.5 years old)  Um. Can you say it again in my other ear? The one that’s not bleeding. Or was that just an impression of a velociraptor being tortured while laying an egg? There’s no way around it. You’ve just […]

“When I’m a grandpa and you’re a baby again, I’m going to give you lots of toys.” -Finn (2014, 4.5 years old)   My son’s concept of time is… interesting. “Yesterday” could mean two years ago or two minutes ago as far as he’s concerned. It would give Einstein a heart attack and make Carl […]

“”Why does she sound like Darth Vader?” -Finn (2014, 4.5 years old)   Children oversimplify things. It’s just what they roll. My son was out with my wife while she ran some errands. A lady came up to them and asked them a question. She must’ve had some previous esophageal cancer or larynx ailment because […]

“Garwic smewws wike skunk and poop.” -Lucas (2013, 4.5 years old)  I love garlic, but I can understand that it’s a bit showy as far as smells go. The funny thing about my son’s description is that I had to wonder for a sec whether this meant he didn’t like the smell of garlic. Some […]

“I like Arden more than Lightning McQueen. And the entire universe.” -Finn (2014, 4 years old)   These two are ridiculous. Can you even take it? I’ve told everyone who’s asked that I knew I would have two brothers if we had two kids. Whether it’s karmic or just the luck of the draw, it […]

“Weww… I din’n’t actuaw-wy save da city.” But you saved me. “Why?” You just did. “Oh!” [Runs off smiling] -Lucas (2014, 4.5 years old)   He’s such a well-mannered little superhero. It’s funny to think that our kids will never really know how much they saved us. Even when they have their own kids, I […]

“I was dreaming of crushing.” -Finn (2013, 4 years old)   Earthquake damage in our house. The earthquake had just hit on Monday morning and I was on the other side of our house. I ran to my son’s room in about two strides. He was fine, and Avara made it to the room too. […]

“Soooo… how was the wedding?” [confused looks] “…Yours and Mommy’s.” -Lucas (2013, 4.5 years old)   It just sort of took us by surprise because it came completely out of nowhere. We both riffled through our crappy parent memories for what wedding he could be talking about. Once he clarified, we both shared a long, […]
