Jump

Conversation with Alex tonight during the drive back to my house.

This week, Alex stood on a chair at school, jumped, and somehow missed the floor and smacked his head on the table in front of him. He has a lovely bruise above his eye that's considerably smaller than it was when it originally occurred.

I was curious why he did this in the middle of class.

Dad: "Alex, what made you jump off the chair?"

Alex: "My feet."

I asked for that, didn't I?

Dramatic Chipmunk

I talk often about Alex and the conversations we have, because they are genuinely funny and I like to share how funny my child is. I think children at this age and even older, are funny -- something I think some adults lose over time.

But Hayden is funny, too, in his own way, and I've shared some things he's done. But I finally got some video of Hayden laughing so hard I think he wet himself.

YouTube has two videos that Hayden thinks are so funny, he laughs so hard that he almost has a hard time breathing, and in one case coughed and sputtered so hard I thought he was going to throw up. Both videos are by a group called ParryGripp, and all of the videos they make are very silly, but funny.

The first is called "Cat Flushing A Toilet":





This next video is called "Dramatic Chipmunk":





Now, here is Hayden, laughing his head off at the "Dramatic Chipmunk" video. I like that he quits laughing just when the video ends:

NBA Dancers and their Underwears

Conversation with Alex tonight as he and I watched the beginning of the rebroadcast of the Rockets-Heat game from The Toyota Center in Houston, broadcast on FSN Houston.

Rockets take a timeout. Commentators begin to breakdown the game so far to explain why the Heat are catching up (Two Words: Dwayne Wade), and the camera switches to a shot of a blond in a red sequin two-piece dance outfit, shaking what her momma gave her to a bass-thumping dance number. Alex stares at the screen.

Dad: Alex, I don't think you need to stare at the girl in the bikini that hard.

Alex (rolling his eyes): Dad, I wasn't looking at the girl. I was looking at her underwears.

Well, thanks for clearing THAT up...now go get a towel and wipe your face there, Sparky...

Bones

Conversation with Alex last night while he took a bath, Hayden sitting next to him in his bath seat.

Dad shakes the bottle of no-tears soap to squeeze out soap and wash Hayden's hair, and accidentally bumps Hayden in the head. He realizes his mistake and rubs the spot on Hayden's head, and apologizes. Hayden was not hurt, but Alex was upset.

Alex: Dad, be careful. He has BONES in his head!
