Grand Bunny

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.”

(pause)

LMT: “Hug attack!” (throws bunny in my face)

Me: “Oww!”

LMT: “Sorry. He’s just happy to have a family.”

Road Trippy

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.”
