Cone Head

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Our family dog went in for emergency leg surgery. When it was time for her to come home, I told my daughter that the dog would have to wear a cone for a few months. Concerned, Ava asked, “Will there at least be ice cream in the cone?”

Against the Grain

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

I usually cut off the crust for my son’s peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but one day I was in a rush and forgot. Joe was picking at the crust, so I told him it was just grain, which is good for us. He backed away slowly with a very suspicious look on his face and said, “I don’t know about this. Grain makes me nervous.”

Weight Watcher

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

After dinner, my daughter asked if her dad would go to the store to get some ice cream.  I said, “No, Daddy is trying to watch his figure.” Claire responded, “Daddy, I’ll watch it for you while you’re gone.”

Checkup Confusion

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

We were at the doctor’s office for my daughter’s checkup. The nurse asked Vivian to pee in cup. When I went to the bathroom with her, she said “Mom, the doctor is going to drink my pee!”

Safe Hands

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

My son and I were talking about secondhand smoke and how dangerous it is. My son looked at his hands and asked seriously, “Which one of these is my second hand?”
