Dirty Pictures

My kid overheard me jokingly accuse a friend of looking at dirty pictures while I was on the phone today. He thought I was talking to my dad. And he's been talking a lot about it to family friends and strangers ever since. I'm hoping that it's one of those things he forgets about tomorrow. But, in case you happen to see him in the next few days and he mentions to you that "daddy and grandpa look at dirty pictures" please know that

A) it's an unfortunate misunderstanding (not a cry for help)


B) He thinks dirty pictures are photos that fell on the ground

Patience Please

Me: We just had a parent teacher conference with your teachers, Kyle. What do you think they said?

Kyle: We'll talk about that over lunch Dad.

Old Hippie on Acid?

Today Kyle told me that the full moon told him that it was dying, but the it just turned into a half moon. Sometimes he's like an old hippie on acid. I love his crazy stories.

First Debate

Just had my first civilized debate with my kid. I think I lost. Either way, we (he) decided that we (I) need to do a better job of sharing the toothpaste tomorrow. Geez, he's just like his mom. He's not even 2 1/2 - He just learned to form sentences.

Actual Transcript (remember he's 2 years and 4 months old):

Ian: Kyle, Please give me the toothpaste. Please give me the toothpaste. Give that to me.

Kyle: You know... I was holding the toothpaste and you just took it from me anyways.

Ian: Er. Uh. (trying not to smile)

Kyle: I had it and you grabbed it from me. That was naughty.

Ian: You're right. It's naughty to grab things from people. But when Daddy asks you to do something you've gotta do it.

Kyle: You better believe it.

Ian: What? You better believe it? (in disbelief)

Kyle: Yeah. You better believe it.

Kyle: Kyle and Daddy will share the toothpaste better tomorrow.

Kyle: Why do I have to do what you tell me?

Me: Because I'm the boss of you.

Kyle: Well then who am I the boss of?

Me: You're the boss of nobody.

Kyle: No. I'm the boss of yesbody.
