Conversations With Olivia (pt. 1)

Yesterday, walking from Target to the Supermarket:

Oliva: Daddy? Will you carry me?

Gunfighter: Not right now, baby, my hands are full.

Olivia: You used to carry me AND other things!

Gunfighter: You are bigger now than you were then, babe.

Olivia: You'd better get back into the gym, Daddy!

Gunfighter: (Silent)

Being a parent is not unlike being a beast of burden, is it? In college, I used to be a nanny for three little girls. That was the one time in my life when I actually developed some upper body strength!

Send that ungrateful child to Russia! That was always the threat to us when we were ungrateful little sots to our parents.

Children certainly have a way, don't they?

I LOVE when they say stuff like that! :)

Our daughter, almost 7, wants to start sleeping in our bed (which isn't going to happen). But as I explained that there just isn't enough room in a queen size bed for the three of us, she matter of factly stated, "Well, you could buy a KING size bed!"

Kids are amazing. They can make you feel like a super-hero one minute, then take it all away the next.
