1/4/13, Potty mouth magic

“Petrify!” the six-year-old shouts wielding a make-shift wand at his father who is stomping around like zombie Death Eater.

“Petronis!” yells his friend running after them.

A second later the three-year-old plows past.  He’s holding a Hot Wheels car and shouting all the magic words he knows, “Toilet!  Poopy!  Penis! . . . Daddy!”

“What?”

“You’re frozen.”

1/2/13: Jingle all the way…

“How do you like my socks, Mom?”  Clink. Clank. Clink. Clank.

“What did you do to them, honey?”

“I put money in them!”  Clink. Clink. Clankety-clank.

“You did?”

“Yep!  Three dollars each!”  Big grin.

“Okay. . . Go tap dance in your room then.”

Jingle. Jingle. Jingle.  He shuffles off.

The three-year-old pokes his head out.  “Hey, what’s that noise?”

“That’s money in my feet!”

And . . . scene!
