Sometimes my kid is really damn funny. True, he’s also a pain in the butt, but the funny sort of makes up for it, so it all evens out.
Here is my most recent top 3 funny stories:
1. The other night, at bedtime, we were reading an Ironman book. At one point, it mentions “throwing a party”, and my literal thinker wanted to know what that meant. So I explained how it doesn’t really mean to literally “throw” something, like a ball.
The next night, after dinner, he took his plate to the sink. He places it in the sink and announces, “I just THREW my plate in the sink. You know, like a party.”
2. Last week, while reading at bedtime, Connor announces “I want to sleep without pajama pants tonight.”
“Uh, okay,” I respond.
He removes his pajama pants and asks, “Is it daddy’s night for back rub?”
“Yes,” I say.
“Will he give me a back rub with no pants on?”
Now I’m creeped out. “No, daddy will have his pants on.”
“No” he says, “Will he rub my back if I don’t have pants on?”
“Uh, yes, he will still rub your back. Goodnight, weirdo.”
“YOU’RE the weirdo!”
Yeah, we like to let the freak flag fly up in our crib.
3. Have you seen the Geico commercial with Eddie Money singing “Two Tickets to Paradise” to a family sitting in a travel agent’s office? No? Well Connor has. He has spent the last three days singing “Two Tickets to Paradise” on an almost continuous loop. He even holds his hand up like he’s holding tickets in it.
I tried to sing along with him, but he insisted that I stop immediately because my singing “is annoying”.
I hope everyone finds something funny in their lives this week!
