"I said it"

A few months ago, Aspen came home sporting some new jokes learned at school. Aspen: What’s your name?Tim: Daddy.How do you spell it?Tim: D – A – D – D – Y.Aspen: I said, “It.” I – T. Well, Lindy brought her own flavor to it today. Lindy: How do …

"I was just offering."

Tonight, we had dinner on the screened porch, and had recently finished. Aspen and Lindy were wrestling on the floor inside, and Oakley was finishing up her strawberries. (Yes, we finished the 16 quarts from last week, and yes, Jenn bought five more this week.) Oakley stood up to go …

"I like the way he looks"

So, we were at the Dolphin Club last night… it was about 7:30 and we literally had the pool entirely to ourselves. I was hanging out with Oakley, and three of the lifeguards walked by. Oakley: That’s my favorite lifeguard.Tim: Really? Which one?Oakley (somewhat shyly): Don’t worry about it.Tim: What? …
