My Kid Cracks Me Up!

If you have kids, then you know the amazing comedy that can sometimes erupt spontaneously. If you don't have kids, there is no way to really explain what it's like. You'll just have to wait and see.

Tonight, while I was talking to my son and tucking him in bed, our conversation rambled from one topic to another. We started talking about vocabulary, and long words. I mentioned the word sphygmomanometer. If you're not familiar with the word, it is the blood pressure cuff that they use in your doctor's office.

So my son comments that a lot of those medical words are long. Like thermometer. Ther-mom-eater! Grrrr! Well, he explains, that's what it sounds like. Hi, I'm Ther, a mom eater!! He starts snapping at me. We're both laughing, it's a good one!

Nobody can make me laugh like my son.

I don't have kids yet, but I've sure heard some great things coming out of their mouths!! It's good, they keep us on our toes and seeing the world differently!! Mm... those biscuits are on my to-try list because mine always come out like little leaden bricks. I think I have a bad bread thumb...

They are great, just you wait! And you should try those biscuits, especially now that you're living at sea level, they should rise beautifully.
