Right In The Neck

I was away all day at a conference and so when I got home somehow the crazy things that my kids said were cuter than average.  By dinnertime my patience was worn way less thin and everything was generally funnier.   

Ben went to pick up a pizza for dinner and we sat around sharing the interesting parts of our day.  After a while Chase interjects with Dad! Your shirt says I love hot moms!  See?  I love hot moms.  Which, of course, makes me laugh.  A lot.  Which makes Ben laugh.  She can read! I say but that not the point of this story.

Chase doesn’t like being laughed at and she didn’t see the humor in her statement so she blurts out dad, stop it or I’ll punch you right in the neck!  Which makes me laugh even harder because, wow, that’s crazy.  Or it would be crazy if she hadn’t probably heard me saying it at some point.  Why would I say something crazy like that?  Who knows, I probably saw it on television.  I mean it she says, right in the neck!

Ben decides to set things right by removing the offending tshirt (this reading business is seriously going to cramp his novelty tshirt style).  And that’s when Avery decided to jump in with ow, ow, ow take it off!  I suspect that ow, ow, ow was unrelated but, man, what a scene.  A nice way to end the day.

Did you have a good day?  I think we’re going to take it easy tomorrow.  I have some research to do on repairing/replacing book binding.  Do you know how to do it?  I found that giant Thomas compendium up there today and it has no cover but is in good condition otherwise.  I know.  I know, I will regret bringing that book home but how could I not?  It’s Toffy after all.  If you know what to do with the cover you will drop me a line won’t you?
