Okay, so last week we are going to the park. (Go ahead, pat me on the back…I am.)


I’m packing the little snack bag (kudos for the snack bag here cause I ALWAYS just send my hungry kids over to my friend’s snack bags and pretend I can’t hear them asking for food…just ask Jessica, Lisa, Jae, etc.)


Bonus walks in the kitchen, looks up at my apron hanging on the inside of the pantry door and says, “What’s that?”

Me: “That’s an apron.”

Bonus: “What’s an apron?”

Me: “It’s for cooking. You know, you put it on and it keeps you from getting food on your clothes when you’re cooking.”

Bonus: “Then why do you have it?”

::shrugs his shoulders and walks away::


See what I mean about the advanced sarcasm?! I totally wouldn’t have thought of that until the next day…

That is hilarious!

Once I tripped over a toy and fell BAD, rolling to a stop near the stove. My 6 year old stood and watched this, then calmly said, "You need Life Alert."

Little smartasses.

Ouch! You know, sarcasm is a very valuable skill, though. You should totally be patting yourself on the back that he has it mastered at such an early age. That kid is a sarcasm prodigy I tell ya!

The boy has mastered sarcasm and the art of casual observation.

Amy - I have sooo been there. In fact, it is a little-known fact that there isn't much funnier than mommy slipping on a toy that she yelled to be picked up 5 minutes earlier.

Angie - I do pride myself on that...except when he uses his powers for evil.

Dork Fish - Looks like you're cooking dinner tonight...smartass. ;)
