I’m not an elephant.


No post yesterday. I forgot.

Hey….Poop happens. I can’t remember everything.

I love elephants and they clearly love apple stuff like me, but I am not a memory magician. Okay. It was really my mommy’s fault, but I have to protect her. You know….because she’s my mommy.

Elephant

So….Besides making you aware of me not being an elephant. Here’s something else you might not know. I don’t always wake up amazing looking or feeling. I know…I know….it’s hard to believe.

BUT……Just like a regular dude:

I sometimes need a little time to get myself together.

And…..Just like a regular dude, I sometimes put my hands places they don’t need to be, especially when others are in the room, watching and worse….taking pictures.

Grandparent’s Day: (PreK Day 13)


TODAY was Grandparent’s Day at my school. All the old folks got to come in this morning and eat breakfast with us and take pictures. I think it’s fun for them because they are retired and bored.

My “genetic” grandparents were all unavailable. I guess they have a busy retirement. I decided to adopt a grandma. Who says you can’t pick your family? Actually……A lot of people say that, but I did, because I’m awesome.

Mommy! Look! I’m pretending to be you when you were on those angry-loopy pills.

“I am a mommy zombie. I will destroy you.”

Okay. Make sure I don’t fall. I know how to call social services.

Daddy. You can let go now.

We’ve been doing this for a few weeks now.

Daddy

I guess mommy and daddy hung around since they had me in their 40’s. They could pass as grandparents.

And what is this? I get a lousy banana peel.

13-2

Um….Tastes like……

13-3

Well, it doesn’t taste like chicken.

I’m hiding it in this cup.

13-4

My adopted grandma gave me money.

Hmmm……It looks like the real thing.

13-5

 Let me find some ladies so I can flash my money around.

13-6

Wait. Concentrate.

What did daddy tell me about wasting money on the ladies? 

Get a haircut so you don’t look like Eddie Munster?

No. That’s not it, but that’s a good idea. Oh yeah……Don’t!

13-7

Grandma. I’m going to use the money to show you a magic trick instead.

Okay. Now you see it and now you don’t.

13-8

Pretty impressive right?

I bet you wanna know how I did that trick.

13-9

(“Daddy better pick that up before they figure me out.”)

13-10

Grandma was so impressed, she’s letting me play before school starts.

13-11

So you think an introduction is in order?

Grandma. It’s not real. I think I’m safe from being stung.

13-12

Oh no! We’ve been discovered.

13-13

That mommy is everywhere grandma. I can’t get anything by her.

Is it in the mommy manual to look so serious when kids just wanna have fun?
