Little Miss Thing, age 7: (holding plush rabbit) “Mr. Flops loves you, Daddy.”
Me: “How is my Grand-Bunny today?”
LMT: “He’s not your grandchild. I got him from the shelter.”
Me: “If you adopted him and love him, then he’s most definitely my grandchild, and I love him all the same.”
LMT: “Hug attack!” (throws bunny in my face)
LMT: “Sorry. He’s just happy to have a family.”
Today I learned two handy parenting phrases: “We don’t use bungee cords as weapons” and “No head kicking in the car. Or anywhere, actually.”
Just signed up me and MOG for a child/parent Zombie LARP at GenCon. Don’t know all the details but I think the parents dress up like zombie teachers and the kids have to figure out how to get out of the school. It may be the most awesome thing I’ve ever heard of in my life. Rock on, GenCon… rock on.
