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!”

Bad Hair Day

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

My “starting to bald” husband took my son to get a haircut with him. After getting their cuts, they got back in the car and my son, examining my husband’s cut from his seat in the back exclaimed, “Daddy, they cut a hole in your head!”

Arriving at a friend’s baby shower, my daughter wanted to know where the baby was. I told her he was still in his mommy’s belly. She asked worriedly: “Did she eat him?”

When I Grow Up

Monday, October 28th, 2013

Here’s a conversation between my son and his hairdresser:

Hairdresser: “What are you going to be for Halloween?”

Carson: “A fireman. My dad’s a fireman.” 

Hairdresser: “Do you want to be a fireman when you grow up?”

Carson: “No, I’m going to college.”
