Ism of the Week

"Daddy, you're bigger than Mommy."

"Yeah, and thanks for pointing that out, Cael."

"Are mans always bigger than girls?"

"Not always, but usually."

"Are they smarter?"

(Before I proceed with this, let it be known that my husband was teasing me and in no way trying to undermine my intelligence.  This is obvious, of course, because it simply can't be done...) 

"Oh, yeah.  I'm smarter."


"Yep, and I'm stronger, too.  And older."

Cael knew that we were being silly, but I still wanted to defend myself.  And apparently he did, too.

"But I'm so much prettier!" I piped up.

"Yeah, Mommy... and I have the most gas!" 

No argument there.


  1. Ha!! He is so funny!!! I love that he says mans instead of men. I'm always sad when my boys grow out of saying cute things like that. You guys seem like a fun couple!

    I wanted to thank you again for sharing about Cael's toes- after hearing about your podiatrist experiences we took my son to the podiatrist and he has to have surgery on his toe, but we got him in at just the right time before he grows another bone and the surgery becomes more complicated.

    1. Oh my goodness, I'm glad you discovered that before it turned into an even bigger problem! I do need to get Cael checked again, but his have definitely not gotten worse, so I'm a little less anxious than I was the last time around.


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