I just stepped out of my office to take an important call from home to help my wife decipher what word my son was trying to say when describing a scene from an episode of Ninja Turtles. I got it all sorted out. Now back to work.
Tonight while driving to Grandma’s house we saw a man on the side of the road with a sign saying, “Got Laid Off. Anything will help.” Chandler asked about him and the sign, and I explained the man’s situation and the idea of begging.
Chandler gazed off into the distance listening very intently the whole time, and when I was done he turned to me and said, “Sawyer begs.”
The other day we found out that Chandler had hidden a pair of pajamas that we had been looking for. When we asked him about it he said, “I was teasing you!” So we explained to him how what he was doing was really lying and that there is good teasing and bad teasing.
Then he asked us, “Is there good lying and bad lying?” We were both taken aback by that question. For the sake of simplicity, we went with “there’s no such thing as a good lie.” We figured we could get into the intricacies of white lies when he turns 4.
Cut to the next evening. We had just finished dinner, Chandler was at the table finishing his last bites of a dessert when the doorbell rang. It was a guy trying to sell something. I told the man I was in the middle of dinner.
“Why did you tell that man you are in the middle of dinner, Daddy? Dinner is over.”
So…maybe we’ll discuss the difference between good lies and bad lies now.
Did you write that joke I made?
— Chandler is starting to take interest in my blog
I want some cheese in my mouth

Hey everyone! Chandler has a new trick! He showed it to me the other night. He was sitting on the toilet (it feels so good to call it that instead of “potty”) and suddenly called me over for something I assumed was urgent.
“I’m peeing! Now I’m not peeing.”
“Okay, you’re don-“
“I’m peeing again! Now I’m not peeing!”
This went on for about a minute or so. Just thought you all should know.
