Thumbs Up!

I think I read once that babies (and baby animals) are cute by design.  They have features that we instinctively find endearing and cause us to want to protect them not only from predators but to prevent us from putting them on the curb with a "free" sign when they drive us crazy.

And now that I have kids, I totally get it.

 Not only are Cael and Graham a perfect genetic blend of Joel and me, but they possess a perfect combination of skills that have been genetically engineered to irritate the daylights out of me.  And what's worse is that they find it so, so funny.

I could tell them knock-knock jokes until I'm blue in the face.

I could make a funny face and hop on one foot.

I could sit them down in front of the television and show them both Hangover movies back-to-back and I wouldn't get a smirk.

But let them shout about their thumbs at the top of their lungs while trapped in the van, and they are set for life.

Watch out, Hollywood.  There's a new comedy duo in town.


  1. Ummmm......that was really cute and their giggles are adorable, but why did I let my 3yr old watch that?? He is now yelling out thumbs up while running in circles like a mad man!!!

    1. Ooh.. I'm not sure why you did that either! :) JK But they sure do know how to have a good time...


Leave your own "ism". Cael and Graham double-dog dare you.
