Don't say hate

Daddy:
please don't say hate. It is not a nice word. You can say "I don't like" but not "hate".
S:
why is it a word then?
Daddy:
there are lots of words that are not nice, that are still words, but you don't say them.
S:
oh. Okay. Well what are they for then? Are they for dinosaurs
(My daughter. Kind of getting the point but somehow getting wildly off track with dinosaurs)

Daddy I hate lemurs. I super hate lemurs and I don’t want to eat them.

My son 3 years old.

Apparently he doesn’t like lemurs. Just for the record I am not perpetuating any lemur stereotypes or discriminations over here. This is a lemur friendly house.

My kids just watched the cartoon Clifford for the first time. Of course, as a mature 35 year old man, all I can think of is who picks up the giant shits this dog must take. That’s got to be one big pooper scooper.

Daddy you should have totally taken a video of that (holding her breath in the bath tub) and put it on Instagram. That would be awesome.

My 6 (?!) year old daughter.

It scares sometimes to think of what her life will be like when she is older and how she will use technology. She is 6 years old and knows how to use an iPad, cell phone, a computer, pvr, knows the basics is surfing the web and will likely find and read this very blog.

Our summer as illustrated by a 6 year old.

1. Playing in the sprinkler.
2. Daddy’s new car (not a spaceship).
3. Our week at the cottage (is there something dead in the corner?).
4. Playing in the pool.
5. When they found baby bunnies at the park. (Notice the love. Lots of love)
