Eats Poop and Sleeps

Ever seen that book with the panda on the cover?

Well, I had one of those moments the other day ...

My step-son Johnathan brought one of his friends in the house, and for some reason their first stop is always over at the crib to look at his new little sister Jaiden.

As they walked away from the crib, they asked "how come whenever we come in the house, she's never awake?"

Well, me wanting to be the knowledgeable and informative dad, proceed to tell them ...

"She's only a couple of days old, pretty much all she does is eat poop and sleep."

Now, I'm pretty sure Jeff wasn't serious, but his timing sure was pretty good. He immediately scrunched up his face, looked straight at me, and in a dead serious tone of voice said ...

"Ewwww ... she eats poop????"

baby scrunch face

lol, ugh, kids.

So that was my lesson in punctuation. From now on, I know that when describing a typical day for my 5 day old daughter, I will be sure to clearly states that she Eats (comma) Poops & Sleeps.

Keep havin FuN!

p.s. I hope you enjoyed my attempt at humor writing.

  1. Thanks for the chuckle! It's been a long time since I've had little ones in my life and I really do miss how they literally interpret things. I'm hoping my son will soon give me a grandbaby to dote on! Your daughter is a cutie! Congratulations.

  2. Hi Maureen,

    Thanks for the kind words ... yes, my daughter's smile always makes the day seem a little better ... no matter what else has happened. I hope you get your grand baby soon ... doting is fun ... especially when you can give them back to their parents huh? ;-)

  3. Oh yeah! Giving them back is the best part ;o) I think the thing I'm going to like best about being a grandmother is that I can just love them without having to be the disciplinarian. I don't have to worry about homework, teeth brushing, curfews, etc. I get to be the "good guy" all the time! What could be better than that!
