Super Mysteries

Trying to explain to Colin why his favorite superheroes wear their underwear on the outside of their pants. "They just do," and "No, you can't wear them to school like that" are the best I can do before coffee.

Sixty Four Days and Counting

Colin has been saying, "I need to go to my birthday party!" all day. His birthday is in December. It is October. How many times and in how many ways can I explain this before my brain melts?

"Mom. I so much love you. I saved you inna boat. 'An I fixed you at the big school. I so much love you, mom."

"Was that a dream, honey?"

I Missed the "Disguise Your Kid" Memo

Picture day at school & Colin is the only boy there without slicked back hair & a button-down shirt. I was just happy he was willing to get dressed at all and then decided on a Superman t-shirt today because it represents what he actually looks like these days.

Too Little, Too Late

I've been saying, "What the heck" a lot lately, insead of other possible swearing, in attempt to clean up my act in front of the kid who repeats everything.

Today Colin dropped his water bottle on his foot and yelled, "What the fuckin' heck!"

Species Confusion

At the lion exhibit at the zoo, Colin pointed to the female. "Wassat?" "That's a girl lion." I said. "The boys have a lot of hair on their heads. Girl lions don't have that hair." "Oh," said Colin. "I finked it was a tiger."

See You Last Weekend!

Colin just said, "bye, see you last weekend!" People are just so damned cute when learning the English language.

4 AM

"Mom, it's morningtime!" Bright as a penny.

I check the window - dark. I look at the clock - 4am.


"Hehe. Just kidding."

With that, he rolled over and fell back to sleep.
