My Son is an Old Man Trapped in a Two-Year-Old’s Body

It has been a long standing morning ritual for Quinn:

Wake up, get a sippy cup of milk, go stretch out on the couch and drink it.  On a good day mom will even turn on PBS Kids for him.  After kicking back with his morning beverage he may or may not eat breakfast.  But he must drink his milk while reclining on the couch.

Just now?  After finishing his supper and having a small dessert?  He wanted a cup of milk.  Sure, no problem.

His eldest sister gave him his cup and then he began whining.  Because?  He doesn’t yet have the verbal skills to say, “I need help taking my pants off so I can go crash on the couch with my sippy cup and NO pants, because I’m 87 years old and tacky.”

So instead he stood in front of me whining and grunting, saying something akin to “Off, off!” and trying to pull his jeans down with one hand (because the other hand wasn’t about to relinquish the can of beer cup of milk).

He is now pants-free and chugging his favorite brew (two percent) while watching his shows (Cartoon Network’s Boomerang).

And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt is off to finish the dishes.

  1. love it – my miniature old man loves his low sodium v8 while watching PBS kids in the morning- cuz “adventure waits when you’re with Super Why!”


  2. That was so A.J. many years ago. We even have pictures. 🙂 Routine feels good, doesn’t it? BTW, some of my cousins (including the one that is in your stake) call going pantsless late in the day “Phase 2.”

    I was going to post this on the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but I wasn’t sure if you’d see it, so that is why I am posting it here.

    I saw your post on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and thought you may like this too. I have read the first one and am just starting on the one in the link. Hope you enjoy.

    Ok, Binh does the exact same thing in the morning. His drink of choice is Pediasure/whole milk (cause I’d like him to break the 25lb. mark before kindergarten). Don’t talk to him before his first cup of milk in the morning. He’s like a man with a cup of coffe.
    He also has to have milk before bed, but he is okay with leaving his pants on!
