Watch Your Words

Justin had been wrapping Christmas presents all afternoon while managing to include both a 20-month old and a 4-year old in the taping and folding. His efforts had been valiant. However, despite the patience required for such a task, he soon came to a point where he could no longer function as a normal adult human while keeping little hands from ripping paper and running off with bows. He began to go crazy and came to the kitchen seeking solace amongst my dinner preparations. Unbeknowst to both of us, Mia had quietly followed him.

Him: *heaving a sarcastic sigh* How did my life come to this point?
Me: Well, you tricked me into having sex with you, then we had babies.
Mia: You had SNACKS??

So, consider this as your heavenly holiday reminder: Unless you want your kids to compare conception to confections, watch your mouth in their presence.

But I'm sure all of you already knew that. We learn slow over here.

  4. LOL! Even my husband laughed pretty hard at that one. He is feeding our little munchkin a bedtime snack after we were already settled in bed; he wondered the same thing :). And said it happened just like you two said!
