I bet you’ve been wondering where these were! Well, I was a little slow getting started today, because little baby C decided that he wanted to wake up for the day at 2am. Then it took me 90 minutes to get him back asleep. Then he woke again, for good this time, at 6:15. Total jerk move.
Anyway, the only inspiration I felt today was to write a little piece called “Today, Mommy is an Asshole.” I’m sure you understand why. Sometimes, this Mommy excels at being an asshole. But generally it’s only when provoked.
But here I am! And here are our favourite quotes, pulled from conversations this week.
The Threenager, pointing at a freckle on my arm: Is that a boo boo?
Me: No, honey. That’s freckle.
The Threenager, pointing at another freckle: Is that a nickel too?
The Teen, desperate to watch another episode of Marvel’s Agents of Shield that we had recorded, despite it being 11pm: Come ON! Pleeeeease?
The Husband: We’ll watch the next episode tomorrow night.
The Teen: But there’s school the next day! I’ll have to go to bed early!
Me: You have to go to bed at 8:30pm?
The Teen: Well, no. I won’t be tired enough to fall asleep that early.
Me: Perfect. We’ll watch the next episode then!
The Teen: But I’ll be doing homework!
The Husband: Well, I guess you’ll have to finish it earlier in the day, if you want to watch Shield.
The Teen: But what if you guys forget???
Me: We’re not going to forget.
The Teen: But what if something happens and we don’t get the chance to watch another episode again for a long time?
The Husband: You’re whining. You sound like the Threenager right now.
The Teen: No I DON’T.
Me, using a whiny voice: Yes you doooooo.
The Husband: You’re definitely whining.
The Teen: No I’m nooooot!
The Teen: STOP IT.
The Husband: …
The Teen: YOU’RE WHINING.
Me: This is so going up on Things Overheard.
For those of you who aren’t Canadian, this next one may not make any sense. Tim Horton’s is the equivalent to Dunkin’ Donuts, in the US, only with waaaay more cultural significance.
The Threenager: Daddy, are you going to stop at Tim-portance?
The Husband and the Threenager are out for a walk. They pass a young cadet, out fundraising.
Cadet: Would you like to donate?
The Husband: No thank you, not today.
The Threenager: Why did she want to give us a donut?
Happy Game of Thrones day!
