The mister has a new favorite saying that goes like this:

you can't shine a turd
(I know, classy-- right?)
Well, he has been inserting it in conversation all over the place to see how it will be received. So tonight we are sitting with the kids before bed and he says it.
Z Kid: What does that even mean Dad?
The Mister: It means that it's bad no matter what you do to it, just like a turd.
R Kid: Well, you could put googly eyes on the turd that would make it look better.
B Kid: Maybe a wig and some arms and legs. That would make it way cuter.
The Mister: But at the end of the day it's still a turd, stinky and gross.
Kids: Wow, you're right Dad.
The mister is our guru master. So mystical and mysterious. It's hot!

i am awe-struck! seriously deep thoughts! But googly eyes? Pure genious! I have a feeling the hubby may just start "product testing" that phrase 'round these parts!

Sounds like a great family night activity. Save some of Rusty's frozen stuff, spray some finish on it so it doesn't crumble, and see who can make the turd look good. Then have no-bake cookies for dessert. Chocolate, poo, and a lesson, who could ask for more?

You've got some good thinkers there. I NEVER would have thought of goggley eyes on pooh, but that is brilliant. I love your kids!

I can't wait til R-man, or better yet, E, discusses this with his teacher. Anna has taken to saying "crap" and "pissed" thx to her Daddy. Nice.
