[Said to my parents] “It’s both of your faults. Him.” [Referring to me] -Elizabeth   We all exploded with laughter at the way she’d put it. Later that night, I stared at our 4yo son running around in circles as he stuck his tongue out and screamed gibberish. I turned to Lizzie, hugged her and […]

The Family Pet… Robot

Posted by on September 27th, 2013, under NOTEBOOK

  When the question of whether we should get a family dog or cat came up, I admit I pinched the bridge of my nose and sighed a little bit. Okay, a LOTtle bit. I’ve had a Beastmaster level of family pets. Mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians, fish oh my! I even tried to keep captured […]

“I don’t need to go pee pee… I just dancing.” -Lucas (4 years old)  Just bustin’ a move. Ah the pee pee dance. It’s the first dance we ever learn. I guess I can’t be sure, though. Maybe he is dancing. Gyrating while grabbing your crotch practically qualifies as a style of dance these days. […]

The Best Bad Ideas

Posted by on June 18th, 2013, under NOTEBOOK

Before I begin, let me assure you no toddler was harmed in any way. This isn’t one of those kinds of story. In the way-too-early morning (aka before noon) we packed up Lucas, our 3.5-year-old son, got me coffee and all headed off to a skateboarding park. It was rented out for us, all to […]

“Thomas da Twain has a penis!” -Lucas (2013, 3.5 years old)  Mommies have a not-penis (aka bajina). Daddies have a penis (aka a not-jina). And twains ::ehem:: trains apparently do, too?

“I want to be a fiweman. So I can wescue people.” -Lucas (2013, 3.5 years old)  Sometimes my kids say things to me that are so moving to me that I catch myself, the look I’m wearing on my face. Because sometimes the aftermath of a heart-microwaving statement or moment is me sitting there, still, […]

“Daddy’s stinky!” [I change my shirt] “S’okay now. I can’t smeww da stinky anymoh.” “But… when it goes away, it comes back.” -Lucas (2013, 3.5 years old)  Personal hygiene can experience a “low” when people become parents. Low like The Great Depression. All the hustle and bustle… ::sigh:: At least that’s what I’m blaming it […]
