“No. No. I disagree, I disagree, I completely disagree. And after I get Noah down for a nap, I am going to find passages to support my argument.”

—My wife, demonstrating perfectly what it’s like when we argue over an interpretation of a book (via englishprof)

This isn’t normal? I thought this was normal.

The boy is already arguing semantics with me.

englishprof:

Me: Please don’t eat your pancakes like a dinosaur.
3.5-Year-Old: But deinosuchus was not a dinosaur!

I once told him, “Be careful, you’re going to fall and break your head. You only have one head.”

He responded, “Nuh uh, I have a FOREhead right here!”

The smart aleck gene is strong with this one.

Tony and I wrote these letters on hotel stationery on the last night of our honeymoon and addressed them to ourselves five years in the future. I was heavily pregnant on our fifth anniversary last year, and it slipped our minds. We agreed to open them this year instead, and then forgot again. We finally read them tonight, and oh, the feels. (Notably, I predicted we’d have two boys. Just for the record.)

God that is such a terrible/wonderful idea. No one mention this to Taco Bell or Paramount or they will totally acutally do it.

But how will they pronounce it?!

For what it’s worth, I showed the above picture to my 3.5-year-old son, whose entire knowledge of the movie has been gleaned from like four YouTube clips. Here’s a transcript of our conversation:

Me: Hey. What’s this?Son: A dinosaur.Me: What kind?Son: Triceratops. Me: What’s it from?Son: I don’t know—ummm, oh, Jurassic Park!Me: Thank you.Son: Why was that triceratops sick?


The mystery of what caused dinosaur extinction has finally been solved. Damn you, Spielberg. You son of a bitch.
