In Which My Daughter is Wicked Smaht

In CategoryNavel Gazing

The scene opens with the kids playing in the family room… 

Big: What kind of dinosaur should I be?
Me: I don’t know – how about that burrowing one?
Big: Ok, what’s it called?
Me: I don’t know.
Little: Oryctodromeus.

Me: What? 

Little: Oryctodromeus.

Me: What?
That’s it. My kids are officially smarter than me. Thanks a lot, PBS. I kind of thought I’d have more than three years before I was the dumbest person in the room, know what I mean? I about fell over. Oryctodromeus? Who knows that? Little weirdo. I’m still the only one allowed to drive, though. So I took my ass to Starbucks and got a venti mocha. Maybe I can keep up if I’m all hyped on caffeine. Then we found a construction site and watched a crane load roofing onto a building. I might be stupid, but I can at least show them a good time.
