First there was a Man. Then a Woman. Then in quick succession, two cats, a confused dog beast, and two kids. I stay at home with them. I'm the Man

Holy Moley, She got the Devil in'er!

The Peanut tells us this about her day in school last Friday:

"I have friends (yay!) and they drew on my face and I drew on their faces so the teacher had to wash my face and then I didn't want the other kids near me so I blew all their faces (The Peanut loves the story the 3 little pigs.  Her favorite character is the Big Bad Wolf. She often pretends to be him.  No porcine mason for her.  She likes to be the bad guy.  She's pretty cool) and then they cried and fell down."

"You made them cry?"  we asked.

"Yes."  She replied.

My wife facebooked her teacher.

She had to wash the P-Nut's face because of a messy sneeze.

The rest of the story was a complete fabrication.

Part of me is very proud of her obvious powers of imagination and storytelling ability.

 Part of me is scared shitless.


In other news, I've been included in DadofDivas Dads in The Limelight series.  I don't why.  I'm # 57.
Anyway, he is an excellent dadblogger and community builder so if you've got nothing better to do, head on over and check him out.


  1. Peanut can craft a tale of suspense and intrigue. I could slip quietly out of Polite Fictions right now and Peanut could take my place and I'd not be offended.

  2. I love her imagination, too! Good luck, Dad.

  3. The apple doesn't fall too far does it. She is funny too.

  4. I did something similar to this in 1st grade. I remember being too embarrassed to admit I had snot on my face, so I made something up. My story was so much more lame than hers though. She's a little genius!

  5. Just wait until she's 16 and using her imagination for evil instead of good.
    Best of luck to you.

  6. Oh my. It may be a bumpy ride.

  7. She'll be making up words for Sarah Palin any day now.

  8. You done good with that'n. Hope the Pumpkin Man is paying attention.

  9. This skill of hers is going to come in handy during high school when she comes in after curfew.

    Not that you should worry.

  10. As the mother of four girls -- devious girls way back when -- you should start the mental preparation now.

  11. That is hilarious! Sometimes it is amazing what comes out of kids' mouths! Like this one time, on the freeway, a car veered over to the exit at the last possible second, cutting my aunt off. My young grade-school cousin's response was "Hey mom! That guy drives a Focus! Isn't that ironic!"

    Your girl is going to be a genius. If she isn't already.

  12. You have reason to worry. :) That smile was because it was YOUR kid and not MINE.

  13. Found you through Eva's blog. Very happy to be 101!
