The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

DYLANism: What’s that in your pocket?

This morning I woke up and got up for breakfast. I made it all the way to the shower before either of our kids woke up. Dylan usually wakes up before I do but she seems to be running a bit of a fever the past two days and so has slept a little bit later.

I got out of the shower, dried off, and started the rest of my routine. Dylan walked in our bathroom, all quiet, sleepy and passive, about the same time Mom rotated into the shower from her nightly slumber. Luckily,  I was able to get my underwear on before Dylan turned the corner.

Dylan stood there watching me brush my teeth in my underwear. When I was done she asked, “is that a pocket Daddy?” looking at the sewn fly in my boxers.

Now, I realize the bulk of my readers are female but I have to guess you know what athletic boxers look like, so I will spare you the description, and how the fly is sewn on to the front.  🙂 For those of you that can’t imagine, I would just like to leave you with the adjectives: snug, majestic, and Micheal Jordon.

OK, I would like to leave you with that description but it wouldn’t be entirely true. And I know Micheal Jordan isn’t exactly an adjective but Hanes is.

Dylan left the door hanging wide open for a witty reply however with the ‘pocket‘ question. But, as I looked over my shoulder to see Mommy looking at me in a somewhat unglamorous position, after staggering into  the shower room (she rarely opens her eyes when she makes this trip), I figured I better behave.

I replied, “why yes Dylan it is a pocket?”

“What’s it for Daddy?”

The one liners are just sitting on the tip of my tongue but rolling with it I told her, “Well I can put my keys in there. Or my wallet…..Or both.”

Dylan deduces, ” Isn’t it hard to find there Daddy?”  (thanks sport)

I agreed, “Well that’s the idea Dylan” as I looked over to Mommy for approval.

Mommy just shook her head and flushed her face into the palms of her hands in disbelief.

I don’t know what she was shaking her head about? I was proud of myself for keeping the conversation to a ‘G’ rating and yet still a wee bit amusing (pardon the pun)

So, to all you new parents out there, you have these conversations  to look forward too!

No, there’s no money in there…

  1. She is doing better, thanks for checking. So much so we went to the aquarium this weekend. And you are very accurate, she is very brainy, I’ve been warned she will be causing me to lose sleep in 12 years, and she us a sweet heart. Thanks for dropping by! ~Have a great week!

  2. Haha aww,She’s such a sweet heart. Hope she gets well soon! Curious kids usually turn out to be the brainy one’s! You better keep an eye on her 😉

  3. Your wisdom with children is amazing! She already has brought it up again. It was less comical this time. I am sorry to hear about your kids being sick. My mom told me tonight that the ocean / beach was one of the worst places for picking up viruses. Dylan had been to the beach about 3 days before she got her virus. Our youngest got an ear infection last year when we visited the beaches in NJ. I hope they are feeling better soon!

  4. You know that this conversation will come up again, right? — As a side note, we are also dealing with illness in our home. There must be something about summer that makes kids want to get sick. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  5. OK Karen, sometimes I embellish a bit. I was reaching for ‘adjectives’ but couldn’t come up with ‘appropriate’ ones and so Micheal Jordan came to mind; rather ambiguous but all good. But as I reread it. I figured I better qualify it with the remark with his Hanes. It was fun. Your job sounds fun and a blog unto itself. Like….today Dylan wanted to go to the water park. I said, but Dylan you can’t go to the water park if you are running a fever. Very reassuring Dylan responds, Oh Daddy its OK, they don’t let you ‘run’ at the water park. She was trying to convince me it was OK.

    Have a great weekend Ms. Karen! Give those kids a hug for us!

  6. Andy, Andy, Andy. Michael Jordan…..ha, ha, ha, ha! That was a LOL moment. This post BTW is part of what I do at my job….. well not exactly but something like it. I take statements, quotes & snippets of what our 3, 4 & 5-year-olds say and tweet them….for example…..4-yr old Joe says to a crying 3-yr old Sally, “I’m sorry. I guess I should have asked if it was Okay before I licked you.” Ha, Ha! Kids, you gotta love them! This reminded me of that . Very cute, Andy! 🙂

  7. lol..I didn’t think of that. Normally she is the one that is stockpiling things in her pockets..bows, coins, toys, M&M’s. What if she reached over to see if was a fake, decorative pocket or not? That would have led to more questions! Thanks for looking in and commenting Jessica.

  8. She is too cute and completely curious the whole time. It was priceless! Thanks for looking in Diana!

  9. That was brave of you! She might have had something she wanted you to hold on to for later. I would’ve told her it was a decorative pocket – in a sense it could be.

  10. Hahaha that is too cute!

I would love to hear from you...
