Conversation with Jess

Jesi comes walking into my room holding a DVD.  "Dad, instead of two shows can I just watch a movie since that would be the same as two shows."

Me (assuming Christi must have told her she could watch two shows):  "Who told you that you could watch two shows?"

Jesi:  "I don't want to watch two shows!  I want to watch a movie!"

Me:  "Yes, but who said you could watch two shows in the first place?"

Jess (with a furrowed brow):  "But I'm not watching two shows, I'm watching a movie and that's the same as two shows!"

Me: "But did somebody tell you it was OK if you watched two shows?"

Jesi (a pitying look on her face):  "You don't get it do you?  A movie is the same as two shows, and I want to watch a movie."

Me:  "Let's wait until Mommy gets back and then we'll talk to her about it."

Jess:  "You're still confused, aren't you."


  1. Poor, confused daddy..............

  2. Poor, confused daddy..............

  3. Here's the thing, if you add up the time it would take to watch two shows......never mind, you will never understand!!

  4. Morning guys - I took a week or so off in order to spend some time with the family and Bella before she heads home next week - and haven't been "in the blogs" because of that.

    Lots of great stuff here - absolutly LOVE the pool story and like you bro - wouldn't have passed that up for much of anything either!

    Jess is SO much like our girls - and Chase is quickly learning the same 'techniques' - and I have a real love/hate relationship with what we call 'parent shopping' to get the answer they want - it's so stinkin cute - but still - AAARRRGGGHHH!!

    And loved the pics of the show at your daughter's orphanage - wow - can't wait to see her where she belongs!

    love you guys - one dad to another - Happy Father's Day!

    aus and co.

  5. It's the scene from Monty Python's Holy Grail..."You stay here and make sure he doesn't leave."
