    The Stairway To Adolescence

    | Finland | Sons & Daughters, Spouses & Partners

    (I have just said something that my daughter considers embarrassing.)

    Daughter: “Ugh, mom! You are so embarrassing!”

    Me: *to Husband* “Yep, we have reached THAT age.”

    Daughter: “Well, only when you’re talking…”

    Me: “[Daughter], you might want to start digging stairs.”

    Reading Never Bothered Her Anyway

    | PA, USA | Sons & Daughters

    (My daughter loves the song “Let it Go” from Frozen. She has learned a few basic phrases in Spanish, and she wants to sing it in Spanish. The Latin American Spanish title is “Libre Soy”, which means “I’m free”.)

    Daughter: *singing* “Libro soy! Libro soy!”

    Me: “You just sang ‘I’m a book!'”

    A Love Born Of The Unborn

    | USA | Children, Sons & Daughters, Spouses & Partners

    (My husband is resting his head on what’s left of my lap next to my pregnant belly.)

    Me: *tenderly* “My two babies!”

    Husband: “Do you still love me more than him?”

    Me: “Yes, dear.”

    Husband: *suddenly shoving his face into the baby bump* “Haha! Hear that, sucker?!”

    Daddy Doesn’t Have The Cuddle Bug

    | Spanish Fork, UT, USA | Sons & Daughters

    (My husband and I are trying to re-teach our toddler to sleep in her own bed, as we’ve moved recently. One morning, she comes into our room. Seeing as it’s almost time to get up, we decide to let her cuddle with us. She happily cuddles with me until I tell her I need to nurse her baby sister.)

    Daughter: “But I wanna cuddle you!”

    Me: *trying to reassure her* “Just cuddle with daddy for a few minutes. He loves you.”

    Daughter: *in tears* “I don’t love him!”

    Leaving You In A Pickle

    | Finland | Sons & Daughters

    (My daughter and I are the only two people in our household who like pickles. One day I open the refrigerator to find a pickle jar with no pickles left in it.)

    Me: “[Daughter], why is there a jar of pickle juice in the refrigerator?”

    Daughter: “It’s not JUST juice. I left you pickle debris!”

    Fishing For Some Perspective

    | Nanaimo, BC, Canada | Sons & Daughters

    (I am the dad at home for my three boys, aged 10, 8, and 5. They share a fish tank with a goldfish each (named Ill, Sick, and Stupid – their choices). While the boys are at school, I notice the oldest son’s fish is dead and disposed of it. After I walk them back from school, I break the bad news to my oldest son. Note that the date is September 13, 2001.)

    Me: “[Son], I’m sorry, but your fish died today, so I flushed it down the toilet.”

    Son: *with great emotion* “Well, that’s just great! First 9-11, and now this!”
