Some conversations as of late:
Travis: Should I just keep growing my hair until it's long?
Becky: No, thank you.
Becky: Because of the way it would look...And the way it would look is dumb.
Travis: Yeah, that's true. Okay.
*Even though it's crazy and our kids are crazy, and did I mention CRAZY? I've been feeling pretty baby-hungry lately. I constantly try to subtly convince Travis it's time for another. Like below.**
Becky: Oftentimes, I want to do things just for the pictures. But it ends up being worth it.
Travis: Like what?
Becky: Um, like cloth diapers. I wanted them because they're so cute, but they turned out to be awesome otherwise. We saved money and the environment. Or like, going on hikes in the fall. I just wanted fall family pictures, but it was a fun activity.
Travis: Yeah, okay. That makes sense. I decided I do a film about ice climbing because I thought the footage would be sweet, but it turns out that it's crazy cool and fun to ice climb, and now I want to go all the time!
Becky: Exactly! So all these pictures of my friends' newborns cuddling with their older toddlers makes me want to have a cute baby to take pictures of. Sweet pictures of the boys and their new baby!
Travis: That probably would be pretty cute...
Becky: And it would totally be worth it. In fact, afterward I bet you'd be like, "The pictures are so cute, but I love this baby in its own right! It was totally worth it!"
Travis: I suspect that's true, but...
Travis: My feet are cold. ARGH! What is that? Bark? Off a tree?!
Becky: No! Those are my feet, I was trying to help warm you up!
Travis: Don't! I'd rather be cold! Why do your feet feel like that? You're a monster!
Becky: Grey, did you pee on the floor?
Becky: Are you supposed to pee on the floor or IN THE POTTY?
Becky: NO. You're supposed to pee... in the...
Becky: POTTY. You should pee in the potty! In the toilet!
Becky: Should you pee in the potty?
Becky: YES. IN THE POTTY. NOT IN YOUR UNDIES. DO NOT PEE IN YOUR UNDIES. Should you pee in your undies?
Travis: Um. Have you shaved recently?
Becky: Not VERY recently, why?
Travis: No reason.
Becky: Why? You can feel the hair on my legs or something?
Travis: Well, yes.
Becky: It can't be that bad!
Travis: They feel like bear legs. Or.... Sheep legs. They're all rough and fuzzy and-
Becky: Wait, this? This is what you feel?
Travis: Yes! Gross, stop!
Becky: I'M WEARING WOOL SOCKS. Those are socks! Not my legs!
Travis: Oh. I guess that makes sense.
Becky: You thought my feel were covered in wooly hobbit hair?
Travis: I did. I wasn't even surprised. Just grossed out.
Mom: Your Dad was like, "Hallelujah! Jack is normal!"
Me: Haha, were you worried about that?
Mom: No, we just thought he was like you, you know.
