My friends’ daughter typed this on a real typewriter (for any of you under 30 years old, “typewriter” is what we used to call Microsoft Word).
There are many gems here, but probably my favorites is the explanation of what her Dad used to do at Amazon, how her Mum never gets days off, and of course how she and her siblings don’t always get along.
Fabulous report Genevieve! Well done.
Our 3 year old boy has just started attending play school this year. Naturally, he has now picked up 125,870 different colds, sniffles and flus and, I can only assume, is basically a walking petri dish.
Thus, I give you the Before I Had Kids before/after starting school bacteria comparison . . .
“KEEP YOUR VOICE DOWN OR I AM GOING TO SCREAM!!”
One recent Sunday I made a point to jot down all of the things our 3 and 6 year old kids said in the span of a couple of hours. Trust me – this is a completely random sample, in no way out of the ordinary . . .
Daddy look at me, I have a bin on my head!
I wish Princess Leia wasn’t Luke’s sister; they make a nice couple.
Is “okie dokey” a bad word?
I like the way Play Doh tastes.
Daddy you should blow that thing up!
Daddy I put my glasses in the water and now I have water glasses!
Do you know how to say “no” really fast?
Is this Toyota or turquoise?
Wanna see something gross?
Oh! I heared something. I heared my bum.
Oh it’s just the toot. It go-ed away.
Note the very important inclusion of “wine” on the dinner menu and the fact that first on the mother’s day dinner list is “steakapalooza” because that is what my wife likes best.
Yep, I married good.
