Life Family and the Pursuit of Sanity

Funnies May 12, 2011

OK, I had to interrupt the scheduled bitching (oh, yes, there’s more bitching to come) to bring you the funnies of my day 🙂

#1 Conversation between me and Lil C over lunch. Backstory, Uncle G took Lil C to Dick’s Sporting Goods store last Friday.

LC: Can we go to Dick’s house?

Me (having not put 2 & 2 together yet): I don’t know Dick, honey, maybe you can ask your Mommy…

LC: But that’s where my tents are!

Me (aha!): You mean Dick’s at the mall?

LC: Yes!

Me: I can’t go to Dick’s, honey.

LC: Because Uncle G took your car to work?

Me: No, because I’m a girl.

LC: … … … Girls are afraid of Dick’s?

Me: Deathly.


#2 Conversation between me & G regarding Baby G’s bedtime diaper:

G: Get him a diaper and jammies and I’ll get him ready for bed.

Me: OK!!!! Shit, all his covers are in the dryer! Here, I’ll get you a disposable.

G: What? You trained me on the cotton ones, I don’t know what to do with that!

He can no longer claim he doesn’t know what to do with “the cotton ones” now, though 🙂

    Lolololol! Your first funny reminds me of an incident from many Christmases ago. My nephew (now almost 17) was just a little guy, and one of the Toy Story movies was really popular… So, Z-man goes out to get his stocking and finds a toy from Toy Story sticking out of the top. He comes running into my sister’s bedroom hollering… “Mommy! Daddy! Look! I got a Woody!”

    Just a little giggle for you tonight.

    Btw… do you have any tricks for preventing leaks when your LO sleeps through the night?

      Sleeps through the night? Bwahahahahahaha! That’s not happened yet!

      But, he is an exceptionally heavy wetter at night, so, I usually make a really bulky double prefold diaper and cover it with a size 2 Thirsties cover all the way unbuttoned. I have some infant prefolds and some bigger prefolds so typically I use the bigger on the outside and tri-fold the little one in the middle like a soaker. I’ll ask Allison from Samozrejme (the cool-ass diaper store) if she has any other hints and share them 🙂
