07-24-18 The Dirts

Baby E has a favorite toy and that toy is a broom. He calls his broom ‘Dirts’ and he wants to take it everywhere with him. He begged to take it to a playdate this morning, but I talked him out of it. After all, it isn’t not good form to bring a used broom into someone else’s house.

Most of the time the broom is Dirts, but sometimes it is Moana and other times it is Joanna. (Yes, he names his broom after me.) This afternoon he was on the couch with Dirts. I don’t typically condone Dirts being anywhere but the floor so I asked him what he was doing and he said that he was Tim and that Dirts was Joanna and they were cuddling. A little while later I found him asleep there, still cuddling Joanna Dirts.


While we were sitting on the front porch this evening I asked the kids a few questions. Here are their responses…

    3. Baby E- A dog because it has four legs or a mouse because it has two legs.
  4. What would be the funniest animal to see driving?
