My son has now been saying em-oh-gee whenever something blows his mind (it’s at least a daily event when you’re a kid) and I’ve just figured out it’s because he’s got OMG a little mixed up.

#TMCAMTD – The Last Boss


My Son had a buddy over for a playdate after school and I listened in on them and my daughter (the youngest of the 3) role-playing something…

Son’s Friend: …okay okay, if you’re the boss I wanna be the second boss.

Son: Okay. So I’m the boss and you’re the second boss.

Daughter: Yeah, okay, and if you’re the boss and he’s second boss, I wanna be the LAST boss.

Son & Friend: …Okay.

#TMCAMTD – Jumping Antelope

We have been talking about animals that can jump for the past 5 minutes…

Me: …And Antelopes! They’re excellent at running and jumping.

Daughter: The lovely beautiful ones Daddy? They have horns?

Me: Yes! (She loves them! How sweet!) They would jump SO high if they were here now, they’d be SO happy to see you!

Daughter: …Oh no Daddy. The horns would spike (Gestures with fingers upwards and shouts BANG!) the ceiling.

#TMCAMTD – Swimming Hat

Me: …so you’ll need to make sure you  wear your swimming hat buddy.

Son: Okay.

(He looks at me and my wife. He is thinking. Obviously.)

Son: Is it a humungous giant hat? Like a Mr Wonka Hat daddy?

Me: Er, no, professional swimmers stopped wearing those a while back.

#TMCAMTD – A Bald Egg

Me: Oooh, I think I might have a BOILED egg for breakfast.

(Son looks at me very puzzled)

Me: What is it?

Son: Well you can’t eat a HAIRY egg Daddy. That would be disgusting.

Me:Wha…? HA! Very good…Bald, boiled…very good.

(Son looks very pleased with himself)

#TMCAMTD – Moo is the only Word a Cow can say

We had been discussing the special abilities of different animals…

Me: You’re a human being. Your special skill lies in how smart you are. You are smarter than all of the other animals in the world.

Son: Yes. Yes I am (He is very pleased with himself). Cows are not smart. ‘Moo’ is the only word they can say.
