S#@t Gets Weird Around Here Sometimes

Sometimes shit gets weird around here. Real weird.

Let me set the scene. Eric is laying in Kenzie’s bed. Hudson is on one side reading out of his Green Lantern book. Kenzie is snuggled up on the other.

Hudson (reading): “Birrrr…birrr….”
Eric: “That’s a D not a B, buddy. Sound it out.”

Kenzie sits up. She stares at Eric’s chest with a quizzical look on her face.

Kenzie: “What are those pink circle things, Daddy?”
Eric: “Those are nipples. Hudson, don’t just guess. Sound out the word.”
Hudson: “Allll….allll…”

Kenzie stares at her own chest. I know exactly what is going to happen before it happens. She pulls up her shirt.

Kenzie: “These are my nipples.”
Eric: “Yes, they are. Alien. The word is alien.”


The nipple conversation in itself is weird. That fact that my husband was able to have the nipple conversation while simultaneously helping Hudson read, and without ever missing a beat, is telling of how often things get weird around here.

The Vacation Picture to Top All Vacation Pictures

You may remember the school picture to top all school pictures from last year when a certain someone was a wee bit pissed about not being able to go to kindergarten.



Well, she's at it again. This one was taken this summer on our family vacation with our friends. They were trying to take some family pictures of their kids on the beach. Kenzie was told to get out of the picture.


I'll let you guess how she felt about that.
