5 year old philosophy and some stuff

On good advice:

Christian: Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
Claire: A monkey swings from a tree.
Christian: Damn you’re good.


On the original philosophical masters:

Have you ever heard of Socrates or Plato?
Yeah. Those are ostriches.


On animals:

How do animals eat?
With their mouth.
But people eat food. They eat something that they like.


Parrots, horses, donkeys, and dogs.
Armadillos are called parrots. Kangaroos are called jumpy beans.
Christian: I pretty much like all marcupials.
Yeah…It’s a kind of parrot. It’s kind of like a bat.

[insert toot and maniacal laughter]


Some stuff:

Tickets are still available for MomCom Austin! Head on over to Free Fun in Austin to enter a giveaway or get a code for $40 off your ticket!  It’s sure to be a fun day.

Some links:

On allParenting: Stylish running gear for women. Think I can get those abs with that skirt?

Can’t decide if I would have jumped for my life (and died) or tried to give this guy a hug.

How’s your blog doing?

Just Straight Up F*cking Dangling Over Some F*cking Sharks. <— I don’t remember the last time I laughed this hard!

If you’re not following Humans of New York on Facebook, you are seriously missing out. Blog here.

I’d love to see some of these signs on the race course.

  1. I adore that picture! And I love the certainty of five year olds. They know they are right, even when they don’t know what they’re talking about. I’m going to try approaching life this way (probably less cute on the almost 40 set…).

    1. Wouldn’t it be awesome not to doubt yourself at all, even when you’re spouting nonsense about armadillos and parrots?

  2. I love the nonsense! Lately we have been talking about death (?) with regard to my grandmother. Brody says the oddest things at the oddest times. Last night peeing before bed he says to me ‘Does Mimi pee in heaven? Does her mom pee too?’
