JUST ANOTHER ROCKIN' SATURDAY NIGHT

Scene: Me, sitting on the couch with the three year old, watching The Princess Bride.

Cary Elwes (on screen): Whatever happens to us, I want him to live a long life alone with his cowardice.

Kid (turns to me): Ask me if I'm going to do that.

Me: I'm not going to ask you if you're going to live a long life alone with your cowardice.

Kid: Ha! I wouldn't anyway because I'm Brave.

Me: Okay.

Kid (fishes in pocket): Also, I have this! (pulls out a new, unwrapped bar of Lever 2000 soap, jumps off couch and runs through house) Super bar of soap! Super bar of soap!

I used to go out drinking. It wasn't half as crazy as this parenting thing.

  5. Makes sense to me. Brave + bar of soap.

    What's that famous quote? "Give me a bar of soap and I can move the world."

    Archimedes.

    1. Leave it in the closet, within reach, and tell them they shouldn't touch it?
