An Anomalous Child

| Madison, WI, USA | Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters

(Mom and I are watching a show in which the characters find openings into other time periods. I’ve been criticizing a particular character for how quickly they went through the anomaly.)

Me: “Then again, you realize that if I ever found one of those, I’d be through it in a heartbeat?”

Mom: *not sounding at all surprised* “Leave a note.”


I Have A Crappy Leg

| USA | Sons & Daughters

(My 13-year-old daughter has been having problems with her upper thigh/hip, and had to get an X-ray. The doctor’s office just called and told me that there is no fracture, so she is probably just experiencing a strain in her ligaments. They also informed me that an abnormal amount of stool is in her colon, and she should probably try and clear it out. Thinking this is hilarious, and knowing my daughter wants to hear the results, I text her and tell her what I learned. This is the text conversation that followed.)

Daughter: “What’s stool?”

Me: “Poop.”

Daughter: “In my leg?”


Santa Is A Big Red Giant

| Devon, England, UK | Children, Sons & Daughters

(I walk into my six-year-old son’s room to tell him to go to sleep. He is sitting in his bed looking thoughtful and worried then says:)

Son: “When the sun blows up and everyone is living in space, what will happen to Santa and the Easter Bunny?”
