From 2006 to mid-2014, I wrote down as many of the bizarre things our kids did/said as I could. I haven’t been as dilligent about it lately and I’m starting to regret it.
Here’s a random sampling from the past:
Stuart: “Daddy it’s dark outside. It’s nighttime”
Me: “That’s right. It is dark outside.”
Stuart: “Daddy? You turn the light on outside?”
“Do monsters have penises?”
Jane: Sweetie, you’re not going to school because you’re sick.
Stuart: Am I going to go to home with my friend you?
Stuart: “Mom, what if people were all chicken nuggets and the pool was the ketchup?”
“I’m not famous but I AM awesome.”
“I had one whole year of loneliness.”
-Rina on the birth of Stuart, 2011
“More hugging, less leaving.”
-Ivar, as I was leaving for week, 2011
Ivar: Can cowboys be blonde?
Me: Yes sweetie. A cowboy is just a guy.
Ivar: OK, good.
“Were pirates the first people on earth after cavemen?”
You can’t trim your Mustache. That’s the best part of a man.
