5 Things That Will Make You Go, Hmmm?

  1. Cheese puffs are good.  Cheese puffs are so good that Ace will eat them until there are none left.  So many, in fact, that his fingers are permanently discolored, and his digestive system shuts down.  I’m talking orange polka-dotted-poop here folks…
  2. The dog has bad breath…really bad breath.  Almost smells as bad as his silent but deadlies.  And he loooves to lick your face.  😐 So, we got him the dog food that is supposed to clean his teeth when he eats it.  It works.  Kinda.  However, Ace likes dog food.  He eats it.  All the time.  Do we still need to brush Ace’s teeth?  I mean, I wouldn’t want to over do it…ya know!
  3. Baby dolls are for girls.  Ace is a boy.  He likes baby dolls.  Not in the carry them around, feed them, burp them fashion.  More like the poke thier eyes out and lick their face while holding them down on the floor fashion.  Should I be concerned?
  4. We have digital cable.  The kind you can pause and rewind.  Ace likes to play with the remote.  A LOT!  Ace puts it on Slooooowww Moootiooon all the time.  Is he telling us that he thinks we are slow?  We can’t keep up? Is it really that obvious?
  5. Shiny, streak free windows are good…to lick, according to Ace.  Is this glass licking fetish an early sign of “kid in the back of the short bus licking the window” syndrome?  God, I hope not.

    About the baby doll thing. Lorelei does the same thing. She’ll also try to poke my eyes out. That – and slam the baby’s head on the ground, saying “Ow, ow, owwwwww!”


  2. Honeybell says:

    Awww, my little Monkey Butt does the same thing with licking glass. there is a perfect smudge line across the glass screen door where he likes to look out the window and, um, lick.

    Hey Jared, check my site. I have something for you 🙂

  5. Joe says:

    Eating dog food, playing with dolls and licking windows…is he on x? LMAO! Dude, funny post. All those things as strange as they are, are definitely universal, Ace is normal…not sure about the dog breath.

  6. Kim says:

    The baby doll thing .. I am still going through that phase and my son is almost four. When he is at his girl cousins house he will spend a large chunk of time “not being” nice to them.. 🙂

  7. Jared says:

    Ashley: Kids are sooo nice! 😀 I’m surprised my dog is still alive after all of the beatings he has taken too. 😀

    Honeybell: Windex must taste good. It’s the only thing I can think of. 😀

    ZoeyJane: In my best Beavis and Butthead voice: Hehe…you said oral! Back to normal voice: I still haven’t tried the pudding paint. I’m putting some pudding on the grocery list for this week. 😀

    Katy: Thanks Katy!

    Joe: I thought my stash was running low!

    Kim: I guess it’s better than “not being” nice to the girl cousin. 😀
