Life, under the bus

Birthdays loom big on the horizon; all conversation leads back to the mighty joy ahead. At least if you are Zack.

Zack: Daddy, Mommy's birthday is before yours. He is smirking, mindful that his birthday is days before Lexi's - great fodder, to harass her with.

Lexi: Actually Zack, Daddy's birthday is in January, the beginning of the year. Besides Daddy is older than Mommy.

Me: MUCH, much older. (Can't resist.)

Lexi: Well, it's not like he's an old man, per se. He just has spiky hair.

Zack, cackling: Yeah...spiky hair and a bald head....

They both start giggling as I finish tucking them in to bed when I hear Greg in the distance.

What are you guys talking about?

Nothing, dear.
