Innocence Lost

2 Jun

o I’m getting episodes IV and V packed up in the car when they notice that Episode VI isn’t coming.

“Why isn’t the baby coming?” they ask.

“He’s staying here with Grandma while we go to the pool party” I reply.

“He’s getting a bottle while we’re gone,” the know-it-all 5-year-old says to her brother “because Grandma can’t feed him with her boobs.”


“Excuse me?!” I returned, trying to reinforce the more child-friendly, albeit probably unnecessarily puritanical verbiage. “With her CHEST.”

The 3-year-old followed that one up with “Grandma has boobs on her chest.”


There’s one more line item on the list of childhood innocence to scratch off.

    Well, they’re not wrong. And a basic grasp of anatomy seems to be standard in the Dorkdad household.
