I couldn't understand why I wasn't at my parents' wedding. I kept asking to see the photos with me in. When I finally grasped that concept... I couldn't understand why my (older) sister wasn't there.

I use to think that kids grew up and adults "grew down." I would tell my mom that I would be the boss once I grew up and she grew down.

I'm still entirely confident in this theory.

I am starting to wonder if I wasn't right all along, also. In fact, sometimes I wonder if I don't learn more from my son than he learns from me....?

Irish Baby Food

I had this (taken at a pub in Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare) as my "desktop" background at work. I work in a hospital. I called social work into the emergency department early one morning regarding a pediatric abuse case. She was not amused !!!

USCivilianSon#1 was ten months old at the time. Every night on this two week vacation he sipped the foam from my Guinness . I cannot wait to take his little brother to Ireland someday soon and keep up the tradition.

Hah. Cute.

I had a dog, years ago, that was partial to a drop of guiness from time to time.

"Yeah?"

"Well, let's suppose we were doing a TV commercial...."

"Wait, does Mom know you're calling me?"

"Umm.. no."

"Where's Mom?"

"Inside doing something."

"Uh... OK... go ahead..."

"Well, let's say we were doing a TV commercial. If we filmed somebody making the ketchup bottle fly through the air, would you be able to take the video and edit out the person so it was just the ketchup flying?"
My immediate reaction (what I imagined I would say) upon reading the above: "Hang up the phone. Destroy the tape. Deny all knowledge of the event. Do not tell your mother we spoke."

Went to a banquet last night and my little cousin was there. She had on a real cute dress with black tights. Later into the evening she has to go potty. She's 3yrs old. So I take her and after she's finished, she says that she has to pull up her "Pantypose". I thought it was cute.

School spelling words = sentence writing for homework.

I can't remember the spelling word, but one sentence said something about liking to get wet and playing with the "hoes".

One summer we were walking out in the pasture, in the blazing hot Texas sun, and my nephew says "I'm losing life units!"

...the kid plays alot of video games.

Both stepkids play a lot of Pokemon.

The other day, I overheard the older one explaining to the younger one why we wash our hands: "Because germs are weak against water attacks."

I was innocently driving along yesterday when my car started stalling at every traffic light, and then smoke was coming out from under the hood. I pulled into a parking lot and called AAA, then called Mrs. Dallas, who was at a rehearsal (that I was supposed to be at too!) We agreed to talk again at the rehearsal break to see what was going on. When we did, she said Young Master Dallas wanted to speak with me.

"Dad? Was there really smoke coming out of the car?"

"Yep."

"Actual SMOKE??"

"Yes."

"From the front of the car????"

"I'm afraid so."

"COOOOLLL!!!!"
