Yeppers. Yeash.

...

Ever since Warren was tiny, we’ve always sung “What a Wonderful World” to him every night at bedtime. I sometimes like to mix up the words to tease him. Usually I’ll substitute our ending “oh, yes” with “oh, yeppers” or “oh, yeash.” He always corrects me until I do it right, no matter how long it takes. I guess last night he was tired of my games. He, exasperated, told me: “Dad, I don’t want to have this argument every time.”

P.S.- Can anyone name the origin of the yeppers-yeash combo?

Unicycle… Check!

My co-worker Jim Owens brought his unicycle in to work today. I’ve always wanted to try one of those. I think I got half a revolution before landing on my back and elbows on the hard concrete. Maybe I’ll try again tomorrow… on grass.

Warrenism #302

I came out of the bathroom the other day to find Warren standing near the door and swaying a bit from side to side.

Dad: How are you doing, buddy?
Ren: Sometimes it’s hard to stay clean and dry.
Dad: Really? <pause> Did you wet your pants?
Ren: No.
Dad: Did you poop in your pants?
Ren: Yes.

After cleaning up, we discussed the deeper meaning of having two bathrooms.
