Sharing is Caring

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

My son’s teacher recently told me that one of the girls in his class kept saying he was her boyfriend. My son confessed this information was true. I panicked and said, “No, no, no — you are too young and besides you are mine all mine!” In a calm voice with one hand on each of my shoulders, he replied, “Mom, you need to learn how to share.”

Directionally Challenged

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

girl pintingMy husband was working with our daughter  on some basic spelling. He’d say a word, spell it for her, and then repeat the word. This went on and on as usual until he came to the word “up.” He said, “Up. ‘U-P.’ Up.” To which, Lyla very quickly replied, “No, Daddy. I pee down.”

Monkeying Around

Friday, October 11th, 2013
