As a result of my omitting these episodes, my wife and I have forgotten a lot of the amazing and super-cute things the girls were doing just a few months ago, and have no record of them.
We've had a number of these conversations:
Wife: Did you hear Cobra say such-and-such tonight?
Me: Yes! So cute!
Wife: We should write that down somewhere.
Me: Yeah. One of us should start a blog or something. Lol.
Wife: You never write about this kind of stuff on your blog though.
Me: Yeah, I guess not. But it doesn't really matter. That was so cute, we'll never forget it.And these:
Wife: What was that thing Butterbean used to say for "zipper"?
Me: Oh man! That's right! She was obsessed with zippers for a while. Was it "fschlawbie"?
Wife: No...that was what she said for "flowers." It was something like "zhu zhu."
Me: "Vroo hee"?
Wife: No...more like, something like..."vun vun" or "sha sha."
Me: "Roo too"?
Wife: "Fahr fahr"?
Me: "Wah hah"?
[etc.]So from now on, I'll be documenting in excruciating detail just how brilliant (by which I mean "within the range of normal development") and adorable my kids are, so my wife and I can look back and remember these times once they have reached the age of unbearableness.
Please join me on this amazing journey through the exact same thing most parents have experienced since man started walking upright and using language.
