Does me saying Part Deux in the title remind you of that Charlie Sheen movie? Yeah, me too. I should wear a head band or something.
In this installment of, ‘my kids are funnier than your kids’, cuz face it, they are. I have tried to put on paper (okay computer) what conversations have happened recently. There’s really too many to mention. They are THAT funny. But I will try to keep up. If anything, this is like an entry into their baby book for their grandparent’s sake. I understand if it doesn’t really interest you. Yes, YOU- perfectly nice stranger that takes the time to read my ramblings. Okay-
Having a conversation about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes with my kids: (because who doesn’t do this?? I mean, come on.)
Owen in defense of the guy he only knows from the Mission Impossible movies- “that’s not nice to divorce someone. Why would she divorce him. He’s in cool movies.”
Me- “Well sweetie, he believes in aliens and he’s a little bit of a weirdo. He was probably very controlling of her and not very nice.”
Emma (using the opportunity to incorporate aliens in the conversation) “Quick grab the tin foil, the aliens are calling. Do as I say woman.”
Me- “let me guess, this is your impression of Tom Cruise being demanding to Katie Holmes?”
Emma tonight- “It’s probably a party with beer pong, strippers and tequila shots” (her describing a night of debauchery my husband was unable to attend with his guy friends)
Me startled and feigning dismay “How on earth do you know about all those things my dear??”
Emma- “I only learned it all from you!”
SNAP! <<cough Well I NEVER!! cough, cough>>
Owen at tuck in- “Mom, do you ever fart in the toilet?”
Me- “Uhm, all the time, that’s where you do your business.” (Who DOESN”T fart in the toilet?)
Owen- “Yeah, but farting in a toilet echos like farting in a bowl.”
Me- “That’s because it is a bowl dear. Not a bowl like in the kitchen, but a big ceramic bowl of water in the bathroom.”
Me- “How would you know what it sounds like to fart in a bowl?”
Owen- “After eating chips once, when the bowl was empty, I sat on it and farted.”
Ba da bump. Thank you. Thank you. Thankyouverymuch.
Tune in next week when Owen yells, “Hey BEYOTCH, get in here” to the dog when she’s outside barking at the neighbors.
