Simon Says

30 August 2012

Don't look at the camera, Grandpa. It only encourages her.


In response to a potential boy name a fickle Grace threw his way Simon confidently said, "I think it's early enough in the pregnancy that I don't have to worry about that being a possibility ... but my official answer is no."

While discussing whether or not someone manufactured triple joggers Simon said, "they probably come with endless refills of Xanax."

After watching me go for the 5th time and lay Sebastian back down in his cage during the 'I'll scream and I'll scream and I'll shake this crib down' segment of bedtime Simon said, "you should probably just always wear a shirt that says, 'Enabler.'"

When I returned from my trip with the kids a few weeks ago Simon warned, "in case you should happen to stumble upon my Youtube viewing history just know that I was on a bit of a Hanson kick in your absence."

After listening to my melodramatic recap of discovering Sebastian eating notchocolate Simon said, "I'm just excited for January when over half this family will be both illiterate and still in diapers."

On a recent road trip with 2.5 (million) hours to drive until we reached our destination Simon shouted over Sebastian's inconsolable screams, "I'd say our glass is about a quarter full right now."

After enduring a few hours of a super fun Grace on the same road trip and in response to Grace calling him a party pooper for not wanting to listen to a certain top 40 ditty Simon said, "if I'm a party pooper then you are absolutely party diarrhea."

  2. These posts pretty much make my day. I'm fairly sure our husbands would get a long great while we drank wine and forgot that our children were destroying all our worldly possessions.

  12. Not sure which shirt I want to have printed up for you: "Enabler" or "Party Diarrhea".
    Toss up.
    But if your lady lumps are really as small as you're always insisting they are, I guess I should stick with the shorter option.

  15. I think we can all agree that Party Diarrhea is one of the GEMS of this post. We will all go forth now, looking for opportunities to whip that descriptor out. With glee. All thanks to your blog Grace!
