Kid Thoughts

Updated: Aug 21, 2021

I think the single greatest thing about being a parent is the heartwarming interactions you have with your kids. I know the details of many moments are lost to time but they all brought me joy. Luckily I had the forethought to save a few and will update this list as I encounter them. In no particular order...


I went to wake up Bridget this morning and she said, "STOP IT DADDY, you're ruining my life by waking me up early!"

It sort of worked because it took me a couple of minutes to stop laughing before I tried gain.

Scene: Men's bathroom and Bridget is yet again complaining I didn't take her to the ladies.

Bridget: What makes boys boys and girls girls?

<Temporary horror sets in>

Me: Well I've talked to your siblings about this but never expected you to ask at this age.

Bridget:<Cutting in>BECAUSE BOYS WEAR BOYS PANTS AND GIRLS WEAR GIRLS PANTS! (Followed by forced fake laughter, lots of it.)

Me: Saved by toddler logic.

Things you don't expect to hear from your (almost) 4 year old:

Bridget (While washing her hands): "How did you choose your career"?

Bridget (flippantly): "I don't know"
