Ryan, showing off a temporary tattoo of a pirate flag:

"I put it on my arm so the flag would wave when I flex my muscle. See?"

I didn't see. I couldn't even tell when he was flexing. But I acted like I could.

After I spent a good part of the afternoon organizing the play room, making sure each piece of each toy set was in it's appointed storage bag, Jonathan says,

"Why don't you just dump all the toys out of those bags and throw it all in the toy box together? Wouldn't that be a lot less work?"

I couldn't even respond. Potato head pieces and legos and hotwheels and dinosaurs all co-mingling in the bottom of the toybox?, no, no. NO.

Hours later I managed to ask,

"Can you just promise me one thing?"


"Can you solemnly swear that if something ever happens to me, you will NOT just haphazardly dump all the toys in the toy box?"

"Hmm...I don't know... The best I can do is promise to tell my mail-order bride. But she may not speak English."

"Can you get a translator? Use mime? Label the storage bags in her native language?"

"Okay babe. Okay."

He said okay. But for some reason I don't believe him.
