The Weiner Dog & Coyote Boots

My kids are the absolute best when it comes to providing comedic relief.

Take this conversation for example:

(Background): The kids and I were talking about going over to my cousins house and that she has a dog.

Emma, “({cousins name}-I’d reveal her name, but making it seem mysterious and secret is more fun) has a dog?”

Garrett, “Yes. She has a dog. What kind of dog is it mom?”

John, “I know what kind of dog she has. She has a weiner dog.”

Me, “her dog is not a weiner dog”.

(wondering to myself when he started differentiating between dog breeds, since he is only 3).

John, “yes he is. I saw it“.

Get it?

I rest my case.

Or, take this converstation we had yesterday morning:

John: “Mom! Can we go to the boy store today?”

Me: “What do you want from the “boy” store?” (What is the boy store anyway?)

John: “Coyote Boots”.

Me: “Why do you want “coyote” boots?”

John: “So that I can step in Coyote Poop and it won’t get on my feet”.

Clearly, he is need of “coyote” boots……….I mean, it’s everyday that he almost steps it IT, right?

    Comic relief is right!!! It's all in the little things too. The other morning I was showering and Tristan was still sleeping. But all of a sudden he nonchalantly walks into the bathroom to pee and says "wassup mom?"

    It's so true, my kids come up with stuff all the time that make me wonder where they're getting their information.

    Coyote boots are totally neccessary.

    ps You have the follow me buttons too…how did you get yours?? Jill gave me the code, but I can't figure it out and I don't want to bug her. Is there an easy way?

    donkeys are big here in Texas with beef cattle rahencrs too for the same reason. unfortunately with the drought, and so many folks selling off their cattle and not being able to feed what livestock they have left, counties are finding a bunch of them turned loose on the roads to fend for themselves…
