After being served a piece of toast for breakfast, my son looked at me incredulously and said, “Mommy, this is an imposter waffle!”

Big Brother

Friday, November 1st, 2013

Around Halloween, we found out I was pregnant with my second child. Our 3 year old had already chosen his costume and when we told him we were pregnant, his response was, “I don’t want to be a big brother, I want to be a firefighter!”

King of the Jungle

My son was playing with toy animals on the floor under the air-conditioner, when my mom asked if he felt a draft. Waving the lion, he replied, “No, Grandma, this isn’t the giraffe!”

Potty Training Incentives

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

We started potty training Oliver just a few weeks before our annual summer party. As some of the adults were chatting, my girlfriend asked if we had any M&M’s in the house. Oliver, who was playing nearby, waved a finger and told her very sternly, “First you go poop, THEN you get an M&M!”
