When Rhyming Goes Wrong

My 5yo likes to rhyme and will often repeat what you say with nonsense rhyming words. Today in a video message I got this sweet sentiment:

Mom: Say “we miss you daddy.”

5yo: We piss you paddy.

Being a Modern Dad

This is what it means to be a modern dad. (don’t take this too seriously)

Getting The Punch Line

Last night right before I left Chandler’s room I told him this joke: “What did Batman bring to the party? PUNCH.” He giggled and I left.

This morning before I left for work I went in to say hi and the first thing he said was, “Dad, I think I got that joke you told me last night. You were talking about punching bad guys and fruit punch, right?”

It was the cutest thing, I just imagine this little 5-year-old laying awake in bed trying to figure this out and thinking, “What does it all mean!?”

My wife was searching for Paw Patrol t-shirts last night and noticed something was missing. 

Paw Patrol is a show that features 6 dogs that use their special talents to help their owner, Ryder, save people and solve problems in their town. 

There are 6 dogs, and only 1 is female. That’s bad enough. But then she was searching for some Paw Patrol t-shirts and none of them, not a single one, have the girl dog on them. 

I’m raising my boys to be feminists because when they grow up it will be a great way to get chicks.
