That moment when you’re at the park and you’re (mostly) sweet little boy starts fighting with another little boy on the playground and proceeds to call him a mother f’er.

And that moment when you’re visiting your great grandmother at the assisted living facility and you pass an extremely obese woman in a wheel chair in the lobby and your (mostly) sweet little boy loudly declares that is a really large human.

    This is classic; being the father of 3 boys, I’ve heard my share of fantastic words/phrases at the most amazing times. I look back those times and just smile from ear-to-ear; those times are priceless!
