Might Be Time I Eased Off on the Butt Compliments...

We were out at the Americana, a local outdoor mall, today. As we walked around the fountain and came to the back of the 18-foot "Spirit of American Youth" statue, Colin shouted, "Aw! Cute butt!"

I got out of bed this morning and started singing cheerfully but with a tired voice.

From the kid's bed: "Mom! Stop it!"

I laughed but kept singing.

"Mom, stop it I said! Oh my God-uh! You're gonna make me cry!"

Are You My Girl?

When kissing Colin goodnight, he popped his tongue in my mouth.

"Eew! Colin, you can kiss your girlfriend like that one day, but not your mom."

"Yeah, when I'm a big man! And I can say, "Are you my girl?" and I can sing her a song! Wif my guitar!"

"That'll be a lucky girl."

"Yeah. My giwlfriend."

Manners for Grandma

Colin farted. "What do you say when you fart, Colin?" "Nuffink!"

He farted again. "What do you say when you fart, Colin?" "I awready said 'Nuffink'!"

A little while later my mom came over. I heard him fart from the next room. His Grandma said, "What do you say when you fart, Colin?"

"Oh, Excuse me."

Where's the Baby?!

Kid sat up like a shot from a sound sleep and shouted urgently, "Mom? Where's the baby?!"

"What baby, honey?"

"Our baby!" He jumped out of bed and ran into the other room. He opened the guest room door.

"Mom! Where's the baby?" He sounded alarmed, so I jumped out of bed to follow him.

"We don't have a baby, honey."

"Oh. Did our baby died?"

"No, Sweetie. I think you were having a dream that we had a baby. We don't really have one."

"Oh. We need to get one."

All That Darkness Hurts the Eyes

After 2,487 story books, a trip to the bathroom and more water...I thought he'd finally fallen asleep.

"But I can't sleep, Mom. It's too dark."

"Daddy, I can get a different daddy like that one and he can make me a car! And I can get a different mom like that one with so so much candy!"
