    My 4 year old asked what happens when you drive over a stick of butter. I said, it’ll flatten. He asked how I knew. And that’s how we got here. So what I’m saying is, when we have a hypothesis in this house, we test it. I’m also saying, my wife is away.

    My toddler, like many, calls every man she sees walking around a “dada”. Today she pointed at a man in target and said “dada”. The way this man freaked out 😭 “no no not possible”, he turns to his wife to say. The toddler def exposed him somehow

    I set out a suitcase to pack for my flight later today and spotted my 3 year old crawling inside it to hide. I casually zipped it up, yelled "I'M OFF TO THE AIRPORT, EVERYBODY!", and carried it to the car. I've circled the block twice and my luggage hasn't stopped laughing.

    4 checked me over with his doctors kit and said “you’re too old I think you should stop breathing now” then told me to give him 600 thousand. His bedside manner is appalling and I need to remortgage my house to pay him, do not recommend
