Lewis And Clark And What's-Her-Name

Going into this summer, I was mentally prepared to neglect myself. There's no such thing as time management with my two maniacal monkeys who make me fight for order every minute of the day. My feet look like they've walked a thousand miles barefoot in downtown Beirut and my armpit hair can use a good brushing. Ironically, about the only thing that is going smoothly is the one thing I thought would surely be Hell: our morning reading sessions. Thank you Captain Underpants and Super Diaper Baby. And that's about the strangest thing I've ever said.

Starting today, we have to travel into Manhattan every-friggin-day for Zuki's speech and language program. Supposedly, it'll help him with his learning issues and it's covered by insurance, so the only harrowing part of the arrangement is, I have to entertain the crotch-grabbing-nipple-obssessing-foul-mouthed-midget (a.k.a. Samu) for the hour that Zuki is in session.

Today wasn't so bad - then again, it's just day one.

I decided to take him to the playground across the street. On the way there, he announced to the world, "I gotta take a PISSsss."

I told him to hold it until we got to the restroom and his response (again, to the world) was, "But it's an emergency, so I can PISSsss on the street, right?"

He likes that word, therefore he says with unbridled enthusiasm: PISSssss......

My plan is to use these afternoons for exploration - be their "tour guide" of sorts. I feel like Sacagawea explaining the obvious to two numbskulls in Washington Square Park.

"Can we go listen to that lady over there playing the drums?"

"Zuki....that's a banjo."

"Oh, how 'bout that guy over there playing the drums?"

"Zuki...that's a guitar."

At least they didn't ask for a fork and a knife to eat their Greenwich Village pizza. I would've had to get all Jon Stewart on them if they did.

  1. Ah man, I was so looking forward to the picture of your beloved child watering a stump, or two. You’re such a tease, Namzola! Okay, which one of you fine parents, (I’ll bet it was daddy, eh?) is responsible for your son’s adult vocabulary?

    1. When it comes to colorful language (and permission to Christen a stump), Daddy has me beat hands down.

  4. That's not even close to the strangest thing you've ever said.

    Did you ever find someone playing drums?

    1. Yes. We did. And he wasn't even remotely interested. Imagine if he wanted to be a doctor?

  5. Oh, I want to meet your boys so much! Maniacal monkeys are tiring, but adorable. I think I'm growing 2 of my own :)
    I can just picture Zuki in the middle of Manhattan say, "Piiiiissssss" Hilarious!

    1. All boys grow into monkeys. Then into apes. I think that's God's punchline. Thank goodness for Mrs. Santa Claus.

  6. Yeah, eating pizza with a fork just ain't natural. But PISSssssing on the street is! :)

    1. The street, between cars and their favorite - fire hydrants. Just like dogs.

  7. Oh, Nami- I wonder where he heard that word? haha! I can't judge. My kids have dropped some bombs and I have no one to blame but....the dog. :) Except, we don't have a dog.

    1. Yes, I did see the video you took of your daughter saying "sh*t." You're the only mommy I know who actually incriminates herself!
