I couldn't possibly make this sh*t up.

Quote of the day, argumentative

Jack: I’m not arguing! I’m just telling you how you’re wrong!

me: Sigh.

That was how our “discussion” ended. 

Earlier…

I didn’t want Jack to mow the lawn with a broken toe in a shoeless ortho boot. I told him to put a sneaker on and then the boot.

Jack: That doesn’t matter! The sneaker isn’t going to protect me from the lawn mower blade, it’s still gonna do the same damage to my foot!

me: Oh that’s a good argument.

Current…

I just told Jack to hurry up in the shower. I went up to look and he had his iPod set up with his black light water speakers. Ready for an event in the shower! Oy!

me: How long do you plan on being in there? Be quick ok?

Jack: I just arranged an entire speaker setup. It’s not going to be quick.

Right now it sounds like a concert in the bathroom. 🙂

Here’s Jack mowing the lawn in his boot! Use the term “lawn” loosely.


Days without accident: 0

We have a running tally in our house. Or, rather, we did until Moca outgrew it…How many days without pee or poop in the house. 🙂

There would always be some freak accident (my fault for not paying attention) or a random pee (someone new in the house) etc. so we would sigh and say zero days without an accident. Then it would get up to a week and then 2… I was hoping for a month. But then I received this text. At the bottom. How prophetic of me to send poppy icons prior to the incident eh?

me: Jack, remember how I said to please come downstairs and watch Moca?

Jack: I was busy!

me: Remember I said she had just eaten and would probably need to go out?

Jack: She didn’t even warn me!

me: She had probably already gone before you even came down. 

Jack: Ewww!!

me: Yet I’m the one scooping it up. At least she was kind enough to avoid the rug. 

Tomorrow we reset the tally!


Moca was spayed in Monday. Here she is resting comfortably with her “stuffy” bear 🙂
