Overheard at Our House II

General, Memoirs, Toddlers

Ethan was lying on the couch next to me watching tv when Shawn came over to tickle him.  Ethan was giggling uncontrollably when Karis marched over and pushed Shawn’s arm away from Ethan with a very stern look on her face.  Apparently she was trying to ‘protect’ her big brother from the big, mean Daddy.  🙂

Shawn saw her look of concern and said, “Oh, baby.  I’m not hurting him, I’m just tickling him.  Besides, he’s Daddy’s boy.” and he ruffled Ethan’s hair.

Karis looked at him, shook her head and said, “Un-uh” (her version of ‘no’.), then pointed at me and said, “Mama.”

Shawn and I looked at each other and started to laugh.  “You think Ethan is Mama’s boy, not Daddy’s?”

Karis nodded her head firmly and said, “Ya.”

Holy cow!! Great use of visuals to help explain the proposed budget cuts and their actual impact on the overall budget.

You’ll never fold tshirts the same way again!

If you ever wanted to hear someone put a mommy’s day into a song, try this one! (I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off.)

A little on the political side, but interesting nonetheless…
