Amusing Things My Kids Have Said

Guest blogger Kieron Casey shares some of the hilarious things that his children have said.   Children’s use of language is a constant source of amusement as they learn what phrases mean and what is socially acceptable to say out loud. The early years are a wonderful expressive time, and I would never stop a child from speaking their mind, but sometimes you just wish they knew how to whisper… Editing their rapid thought processes...

Facts That Prove That One-Year-Olds Are Cold Calculating Heartless Creatures… That You Can’t Help But To Love

  We have what I’d like to call a “reading corner” in the living room of our home. In that reading corner stands an old hand-me-down bookshelf. The bottom two shelves of this bookshelf are neatly stacked with board books and kid appropriate games, and the top two shelves are known to the kids as “mommy and daddy’s books”; which are off limits. My kid’s favorite pastime is to go over to...

Rox Fontaine I made a conscious effort to allow my son to define his own style. I always found it ridiculous and juvenile when parents dressed their children in miniaturized adult fashions.

I feel as though many parents think it’s cute to see their little ones in the hottest brands but don’t consider the later ramifications...

Tampons & Cheeto Bags

As a child, I heard tell from my parents of how they’d spend their hard-earned money on some extravagant toy only to find that most of my fun and enjoyment was provided to me by the box the toy came in. I would often roll my eyes at these stories feeling as though they were full of exaggerations… that is, until I had children of my own. One night I watched my son stumble across one of my tampons. I contemplated for only a...
