From the Trenches of Motherhood, Act III

(In the “things I never thought I’d say” category.)

I-6: Mo–om! E2 won’t stop pwning me!!

Me: E2, stop pwning your brother.

E2: Pew-pew-pew!!


(A consequence of marrying a gamer and making little gamer babies. I should mention that pwn is pronounced “poon” in our house, even though “pone” makes more sense.)


From the Trenches (of Motherhood), Act I

E: lemme go! Let go my foot!

J: E, I’m trying clean your tushie. You have poop all over your scrotum.

E: I wanna see the poop.

J: (holds up a wipee) See? it’s really stinky.

E: (laughing) Eww! It’s really gross.

J: (finishes up) There, all clean now. Up you go.

E: (stands) I wanna see the turd!

J: (opening the soiled diaper a little so E2 can peek in) See?

E: Eww! Don’t eat it!

J: (snork) Don’t worry.
