How We Warp Our Children

Raising Stinky and the Moth has been a fun experiment for us. We are not very good parents, but we sure are having fun.

In one of our annual Christmas letters, we alluded to the fact that our children think clowns live in sewers because they saw a part of Stephen King’s IT once. Grandma just shakes her head whenever the spare lectures her on the clownth in the dwain.

But the best is what I heard the Heir lecturing Mothy about washing his hands… well he was quoting what Dad says when he gives them showers:

“It rubs the soap into its skin or else it gets the hose again.”

My kids quote Silence of the Lambs. Mercy me.
