    From the mouths of 2e babes!

    Parenting a 2e child is full of surprises – some are good, some are frustrating and well, some are downright hilarious. Or least completely unexpected and astounding. Often our brilliant children say things that leave us dumbfounded – we just can’t believe the totally original thoughts that come out of their mouths. They have ways of seeing the world that are fresh, insightful, enlightening and totally unique.

    Do you have a funny 2e story, joke, insight or one liner your 2e kiddo gifted you with? Share it with the TECA community – let us know the funny things your 2e child dropped on you. Lord knows we could all use a good laugh!

    My son is almost 14 yet he still wants me to tie his shoe laces. I have heard this is pretty common among the 2e set. None the less, I find it so annoying. One day, in exasperation at being asked once again despite my past refusals, I told him that the only reason I would tie his shoes for him was if the house was on fire.

    The next morning as I was once again rushing to get him out the door in time for school, he asked me for a match. After a moment of confusion, I looked at his face, then his shoes, then we both burst out laughing. At least he has a sense of humor!

    My 7-year old son passed wicked gas, laid down on the floor and said with a grin, “Mom, I feel so deflated.”

    My 7-year old was working on a reading assignment and his teacher was encouraging him by saying “you are getting warmer” In response, he found the answer and asked “Is that hot enough for you?”

    DS knows I hate the Kardashians. He figured out how to program Siri to call me Kim Kardashin when I talk to her. And sometimes it even says my email is addressed to Kim Kardashian. It drives me bananas. I’ll fix it and then he will change back. He also took a picture of himself flipping his eyelids inside out and then used that photo of himself as the profile picture of everyone in my Favorites so when they call me I see that gross picture of him.

    Why let our kids get all the credit for being funny and original? I was just talking to a few other parents about anticipating calls from school. One mentioned constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. I replied that having a 2e kid is like an octopus – there are 7 more shoes to drop.
