Same, kid. Same.

Took our 9-year-old son to see MARGARET for the first time last night. (I spent the last few weeks reading him the book in preparation to see the film.

My son’s school was having issues with messy bathrooms so every month they reward the boys or girls with ice cream depending on whose bathrooms are cleaner and according to my son it’s become a prank war where they just fuck up each other’s bathroom.— Octopus/Caveman (@OctopusCaveman) May 7, 2023
We have ants and tonight at dinner:— Lucy Huber (@clhubes) May 9, 2023

3yo: I can.
Me: No, humans can’t smell it.
3yo: *sniffing loudly* smells like ants.
Woke up asking myself important existential questions like: *does* the shape of a toddler’s food really affect the flavor, can the color of a cup determine the outcome of a morning and is *true* happiness arguing about nothing for absolutely no reason until ur mom’s head explodes— Mommy Owl (@Lhlodder) May 10, 2023
