Things He Says – Naked Edition

Things He Says – Naked Edition

Sunday we took Robbie and his best bud to the movies to see How to Train Your Dragon. Before the movie began, I insisted on a pit stop at the bathrooms to help minimize during-the-movie bathroom breaks.

Two little boys walk into side-by-side stalls. The best bud closes his stall door but Robbie doesn’t.

“Hey bud, close the door.” I say.

Then from the closed stall comes “Yeah, Robbie. No one wants to see your package!”

Then last night…

We have a constant problem with Robbie wanting to drink, spray, spit or otherwise imbibe the bath water he’s sitting in. We’ve tried explaining this is not hygienically sound but he persists.  So  last night I tried pure bluntness.

“Robbie, please don’t put the water in your mouth. It’s the same water your bum is sitting in. You know, the dirty bum we’re having the bath to wash? You don’t want that in your mouth.”

“No mom, that’s the Jersey side of the tub” he said, indicate his left side. “This is the fun side.”

Not thinking I heard him right, I asked “the dirty side?”

“Nooooooo” he said slowly, as if talking to a small child “The JERSEY side. That‘s the Jersey side, this is the fun side. So it’s ok.”

Honestly, how can you even frame an argument in the face of such non-logic?
