Let’s not bandy about the word precocious. Let’s not say anything about the apple falling from the tree. Let’s just say you parenting dorks and your stupid games are making me feel like an ass.
Me: Hey! I just heard that all the animals in the zoo are out roaming around and they’re hiding in someone’s mouth! Let me use your toothbrush to check your mouth to see if they’re in there.
Peanut: Mommy, we don’t put animals in our mouths because they have germs that can make us feel crummy. And did you know this? We use our eyes to look and sometimes a telescope.
Spouse: Gee, I can’t remember how to brush my teeth. Peanut, can you come in here and help me? I don’t know how to do this.
Peanut: Daddy, you went to college. You know how. And I saw you brushing today. Are you telling me a true story?
Me: Hmm. I’m feeling pretty fast today. I wonder if I can brush m teeth faster than you!
P: Mommy, we don’t brush quickly. We brush carefully. Are you feeling careful today?
Good luck, my friends who are in labor even as we speak. This might be genetic.
Well, are you? are you feelin’ careful, punk? are you?
LOL! Of course, reminding you that you went to college makes me think of my students–I’ve had some who made me wonder if indeed they do know how to brush their teeth . . . .
And good luck to you too, my friend, who will be in labor soon. The second borns are often more clever than the first.
Look on the bright side, he’s smart.
Call in the professional; maybe a dentist may have more luck.
Though I doubt it.
Christmas is coming up soon. I still have to do my shopping. Any ideas on what I should get my three year old daughter? I hope everyone enjoys the Holidays. Travel safely!
I agree with ck…I thought the first one was clever. Ha! The second one will have you running for the hills.
Wow. That is one smart Peanut. Which means you’re doing an awesome job.
i hate when my daughter makes me feel like an ass when i try to be all cute and fun with her to get her to do something. Nothing worse than being talked down to by a 4 year old.
This was Too cute!
Thankz for the post!!
