Old School

My 22-month-old daughter has been very interested in school buses. I explained that they take kids to and from school. One day when we were leaving a store, a large local bus pulled into the parking lot to drop off senior citizens from a retirement home. When we walked by the bus, Emerson shouted out “Mama! School bus!” Then, she pointed at the senior citizens and shouted, “School kids! School kids!”

Safety Glasses

My daughter saw me putting sunglasses on, so she asked me for her pair. After I handed them to her, she put them on and said, “Hey, we’re both wearing sunglasses! Now no one can poke us in our eyes.”

Lost Tooth

When one of my daughter’s teeth fell out, she accidentally dropped it on the floor and the dog, Casper, ate it. She asked me if we could write the Tooth Fairy a note explaining, “Dear Tooth Fairy, the dog ate my tooth but we’re going to look for it in the yard after Casper eats and poops.”

Yard Work

We had been in the process of toilet training my son. One day my husband came in from outside, sweaty after mowing the lawn. When my son saw the armpit perspiration, he said, “Dad, you had an accident under your arm!”

Hairy and Happy

My son was looking at his arm one morning. He said to me, “Mom, I am happy to have tiny hairs growing on my arm. It means I am growing to be like a dad.”
