Why Girl Child and Boy Child should be Co-Presidents of the Universe.

On Halloween (pics!soon!I promise!) we went to a neighboring community and Trick-or-Treated with my former boss/current good friend and her daughter whom she adopted from China. Jason came to the house wearing...

A clown wig.

No, I'm not kidding. One of those rainbow striped, curly, glittery ones.

People who know Jason in real life? Were saying things like, "Who are you and what have you done with the real Jason?"

Because, um, to say that was out of character for him would be an extraordinary understatement.

And? He wore it that day. At work.

So, once we got over that initial shock, we (read: Boy Child and Girl Child) were all mesmerized by the glory of the clown wig.

We came home that night and I threw the wig into the bag in my car which also held some other random things. I tossed it behind the seat and didn't think anything else of it.

Last night coming home, Boy Child noticed the bag and decided it would be HYSTERICAL to wear the wig.

Okay, actually? It was pretty funny. I love that he's such an enormous dork and it really doesn't bother him at all. It's actually one of my favorite things about him.

So we came home, parked and were unloading everything out of the car when the following conversation occurred:

Girl Child: Brother! Take off that wig! You'll never find a chick that way!
Boy Child, took off the wig and placed it on Girl Child's head: Well! Now! How about you? You'll never find a man like that!
Girl Child, scoffing: Who says I want a man anyway?
Boy Child: You will when you are a grown-up!
Girl Child, shrugging: Maybe I will, maybe I won't. You don't know.
Boy Child, frustrated: Girl Child! You have to have a husband! Who will buy cookies for your children if you don't have a husband?


Who indeed?

That? Is the best thing I've read all day. Who WILL buy the cookies??? It's such a timeless question that goes unanswered.

I'll be over here, pondering quietly.

Who will buy the cookies - good think you wrote that down. It really is a very good question.

Amy W said...

Ha! My husband is the cookie buyer in my house as well...

Hey, I'll send you the email with that stuff in it I was talking about on my blog.

Now, here's the comment for your blog post:

Wow. That? Was hilarious.

:snort:

Hilarious! We mustn't forget about cookies :-)

Mich said...

Ok, your kids are too stinkin' cute! I love it. Boy Child is right--the husband/dad is sort of the "all things fun and non-nutritious ambassador".

Kimberly said...

Oh my freakin' heck...how can you stand having two such fantastically fabulous kids? Seriously?!

Although, I saw the title of this post and thought, "Well, yeah, of course they should." That's how much I am aware of their awesomeness.

I want me a set of twins just like those two darlings. Cause they just never stop!!

SJ said...

Too funny! Cookies.....hehehehe.

And I too wore a crazy blonde afro wig to work on Halloween and also to the Library, to Safeway, and to my kids daycare and while out trick-or-treating with my kids.

It was fun I have to say. So fun that I almost wore it again the next day.

Angie said...

I love your kids, too. But, I would never call Boy Child a dork.

BTW, I swear I saw them on Live at Five on Halloween night. I assume I was wrong, right?!?

You and I are going to have to sit down very soon so you can have a little chat with my ovaries. I would like you to inform all the eggs that if they do not produce children as awesome as yours, I will cut them. Will you do it? For me?

Blue Tissue Box said...

Oh dear. As funny as that is, they are absolutely right. No cookies here, no husband either! lol

And, see what a little Disney World can do to a man?? Clown wigs.

Sarcasta-Mom said...

LOL. I'm the cookie buyer in the house, but I don't know what I'd do without my husband to clean the toilet. :)

I just LOVE the thinks kids say, they crack me up.

So glad your on the NaBloPoMo train with me!

Stephanie said...

My husband isn't actually the cookie *buyer* because he's the cookie MAKER, which is also very important to my kiddos. I'm pretty sure they know they would go without sweets, and pretty much anything else in life besides Macaroni and Cheese and Ramen Noodle if he wasn't in the picture... so they like him... A LOT. Glad Jason is up there on their list, too.

Jocelyn said...

Bless the fact that you're raising those kids with such fine values.

It's all about the cookies and who's buying.

"Who will buy cookies for your children if you don't have a husband?" that has got to be the funniest thing I've heard all day!
Kelly is the same way about the wig thing it would be totally out of character for him but he's done that before and everyone would just look at him like "who are you, and where is Kelly/my dad?"

Rachel said...

It is very clear that Boy Child has got his priorities straight!
