13 informed 10 today that dong means penis. So now he sings "ding penis" when "ding dong" is in Christmas music. Then, he laughs like he is the funniest person in the world.— Magnificently 🎄 Messy (@Musings_of_wine) December 13, 2020
My animal-obsessed son has decided that he's nocturnal. He still sleeps at night but insists that he can see in the dark & won't let us turn on the lights for him. The highlight of my evening is him tripping over toys and bumping into walls while acting like he meant to do it.— Henpecked Hal (@HenpeckedHal) December 13, 2020
My 7yo uses an online reading app and she made her username “Poop,” so I keep getting emails with this subject line but I guess I should be glad Poop is reading. pic.twitter.com/aQ0LO2xiCW— SpacedMom (@copymama) December 15, 2020

Me: don’t tell mom where we hid her birthday presents.— WTFDAD (@daddydoubts) December 13, 2020
3yo: I won’t.
Wife: hey guys.
3yo: mom your birthday presents are definitely not under my bed.
I'm a good mom, but not a "not gonna chuckle to myself when you get hurt doing something I told you not to do" good mom.— Sweet Momissa (@sweetmomissa) December 15, 2020

Me, heart bursting: oh my precious girl!

Annnnnnd there it is.
Her: Kids! The moving van is here. Bring the boxes— Son of Dad (@ThugRaccoons) December 14, 2020
Me: All vans are moving vans LOL
Her: And this is why we’re leaving
Sometimes I like to live dangerously by asking my kids what they’d like for Christmas after they’ve written their letters to Santa and we’ve bought all the presents— threetimedaddy (@threetimedaddy) December 13, 2020
