Bad Dog

Danger Monkey, age 10: “If you could be any animal with three super powers, what would you be?”

Me: “I would be a bear, with Flying, Invisibility, and… X-Ray Vision.”

My Oldest, age 15: “A flying invisible bear? You terrify me.”

Me: “Don’t forget the X-Ray Vision.”

Little Miss Thing, age 7: “I would be that dog that has a bad word in it.”

Me: “What? Do you mean a Shih tzu?”

LMT: (giggling)


I wish

Little Miss Thing just got glasses.

We’re going to pick them up, but I haven’t seen them yet. She tells me they are pink with black zebra stripes, with lasers and x-ray vision.

Part of me wishes she were telling the truth because those would be pretty awesome.
