Pride & Joy

After Blaze finished up his bath the other night, I threw him in a towel to dry off with, but not one to wrap up in. He came running out of the bathroom in his birthday suit to grab his clothes to change into and said "Sorry about being naked... but dad didn't give me anything to cover up my pride with". He meant to say "privates", but I think "pride" works just as well.

Fighting Words

On the way home from school yesterday, Blaze told me about some of the other kids in his class giving one of his friends a hard time about being scared to climb the ladder on the slide due to his fear of heights. Blaze said "I told them that- hey, you guys better stop making fun of my friend Chris or I won't ever play with you again". I said "wow Blaze, good job... you really told them!". He sat there for a sec and then said "well, that's what I'm GOING to say if they do it again. I didn't say anything this time... I figure Chris should handle that himself."


Blaze and I were in the car the other day and he asked "Dad, you know what pinky rings are, right?" I said "yes...". Blaze replies "It's too bad they're extinct now... or are they just very rare?".

While changing him out of his pajamas the other day, Keaton (3) said "take off my boring pants dad and get me some awesome pants".

Got Talent?

We watch "America's Got Talent" in our household. During one episode, a girl came out in a bikini, which caused Blaze to say "well... it looks like it's getting disgusting in here".


While driving Blaze home from school today, he explained to me that there was a video game based on Zhu Zhu pets coming out. "I'm really excited about it dad! You get to make up your own hamsters and make them whatever colors you want and name them and train them and everything!". I replied "hey, that sounds neat", to which Blaze said "don't get too excited dad... I really have no idea if any of that stuff is in the game... in fact, I don't know anything about the game and for all I know it may actually be for girls."

It was a whopper....

A couple of years ago, Blaze came running in to the living room after using the restroom. He exclaimed "DAD! You have to see the size of this turd! It's huge! I saved it for you!". Being a good dad, I walked in and checked it out. It was indeed huge, like the size of a baby's arm. I said "yep, that's a big one son". He said "yeah dad! Take a picture of it with your phone!". Which I did. And still have. It wasn't until months later that I realized there was absolutely no toilet paper in the bowl with it. Blaze was so excited he didn't bother to wipe.
