A House Divided

We've had a lo(oooo)ng weekend with Shawn at home, due to his previously scheduled, now canceled vasectomy. We decided to spend Saturday morning Daddy-Daughter/Mommy-Son style. Here's how it turned out...

OPHIDIOPHOBIA, n : abnormal fear of snakes

OPHIDIOPHOBE, n: One who fears snakes; see Jenny (aka:Ninny).

ASSHOLISH, v: The act of doing somehing mean just to, you know, be mean.

ASSHOLIO, n: One who performs act of doing something mean just to, you know, be mean; see Shawn and Ryan (although I firmly believe Ry was working under duress).

Yep. Ninny's apartment, fake snake, planted by you-know-who.

Meanwhile, Jax had to suffer through Mommy's once-a-month spurt of "creativity":

I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.

"Why?" my daughter asked.

"Because it's been on the ground, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs" I replied.

At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Mommy, how do you know all this stuff?"

"Uh," I was thinking quickly. "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy."

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information. "OH...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test you have to be the daddy."

"EXACTLY" I replied back with a big smile on my face and joy in my heart.
