Quote of the day

June 21, 2006

We arrive at the beach where there are some children who are building what appears to be a castle with a moat around it in the sand.

“What are you doing?” my 7 yr old asks.

“I’m making a dam.” one of the children replies.

“A damn what?” asks my 5 yr old.

The other child looks at him, confused.

“Ooooooh, I get it. you are making a damn castle! Can I help?”

Scary sand monster

Like chubby thighs, some things are only cute on toddlers

some things are only cute on toddlers

the beach set can be found here.

    My 2yo days Damma instead of Grandma. So one day as she arrive he was outrside yelling “DAMMA, DAMMA, DAMMA!” The neighbours think I teach him to swear.

  6. Kristina says:

    Oh my heck! That is so, so funny!

  7. Katie says:

    Ha! My kids say “damnit.” Because well, I do. My husband says “Jesus Christ!” and then gets mad at the kids when they repeat it. I just laugh cause I’m evil like that.

  8. Wendy says:

    You (and your kids) never fail to make me laugh! :-) Thanks.

  9. Kristen says:

    LOL. We were recently visiting a lake and explained the concept of a dam to our four-year-old, who started (innocently, believe it or not) exclaiming, “WOW, I really see a whole lot of dam water!”

  10. Saucy Momma says:

    That’s pretty dam funny!

  11. Mary says:

    That story me up. What a riot!

    Nooooo!!! That is too damn funny!

  14. CaliforniaGrammy says:

    Too cute and so damn funny! Thanks for your daily humor, Chris. My husband and I both look forward to reading your blog.

  15. Miss Peach says:

    That’s hysterical! The beach looks like a ton of fun, by the way!

  16. Karin says:

    You are wonderfully funny, and what a cute tushie.

  17. Amy says:

    So, so funny! Future plumber, perhaps?

  18. nabbalicious says:

    Ha! Your kids are hilarious!

  19. cheeriobutt says:

    That would be a great joke! Soo funny! We used to love to visit Dams as a kid because then we could say all kinds of things with the word dam in it and not get in trouble! Ha! I loved this post. You are truly a great writer!

  20. the Smocklady says:

    I love baby butt crack.

  21. jen says:

    I found your blog through House In Progress, and I can’t stop reading–I’ve gone all the way back to the beginning, and I’m working my way forward. I can’t get over how similarly we think! I’ve been laughing out loud to see some of my own gripes and celebrations written down by someone else–it’s freaky! I have three boys (ages 5, 3 and 2), and we’re thinking about the next one. I’ll keep tuning in for a preview of what lies ahead. Your family is beautiful!

  22. Marie in St Paul says:

    When our 9 year old daughter was younger (about 7 or so), she would refer to my mother-in-law and father-in-law as “grandpa and grandpa”. We never bothered to correct our Little Miss Malaprop - it’s too entertaining to just let her talk.

  23. peepnroosmom says:

    Looks like you and your kids had a whole lot of fun at the beach. Love the plumber crack.

  24. Heather says:

    Ok I am sure you’ve heard this, but here goes: I went to the dam to get some dam water, the dam man said I couldnt have any dam water, so I told the dam man to keep his dam water!

    I have remembered this since the first time I heard it. I was 9 years old!

    Best quote so far…

  26. peek317537 says:

    You know, kids are the only ones that can pull off that look. It loses something on a hairy-assed over-weight guy (or woman for that matter). Thanks for the cuteness.

  27. kathy says:

    Now I know our boys would get along famously. I’m just worried that yours might learn “shit!” and “JEZUS CHRIST!” just a little too well.
