Parental pride

My son invented a new word this weekend... butt nostril.

Allow me to use it in a sentence for the full effect "Hey mom I wiped my own butt and now my butt nostril is clean."

Genius! Dash-1 is a genius! And really I'm not sure if I'm prouder that he wiped his own butt, no small feat for a 4 1/2 year old boy (trust me on this) or that he invented a new word.

I should run to get the Harvard application now... and look into getting butt nostril into the Webster dictionary.

This also illustrates a good lesson in parenting, you take moments of pride where you can get them.
