Conversations with the Boy Child

At the risk of revealing too much in the way of domestic arrangements information, I will share with you the few small words passing between the Boy Child and me last night, long after he should have been asleep:

Boy Child (from bed): Mamma!

Me (arriving on scene): Yes, honey.

BC: Pappa? Mamma come check on me?

Me: No, honey, Mamma is in bed and asleep.

BC: Oh. (looks closer at me) Pappa, nagunk? (Nagunk is his combination of naked and naken -- Norwegian for naked).

Me: Yes, honey, I'm nagunk.

BC: Pappa go up in Mamma's bed nagunk???

Me: Yes, honey.

BC: Hmmn.

And he went happily back to sleep after we cleared that up. I have no idea what it means but I was vastly amused.

That is one of the many reasons I'm looking forward to being a parent.

Not so much the thought of YOU being naked, as there being somebody else in the household that has a fondess of asking random questions and being content with random answers.

I'm giggling. Thank you for sharing.

Naked sleeping?

Well! I NEVER!


Too cute, RP.

The boy's doing his part to make sure that your connubial duties are proceeding apace. ;-)

Mamma and Poppa are nagunk. All is right in the world.

Thanks for the laugh, RP. That was pretty funny.

There are million stories in the nagunk city.

How cute! :) And wonderfully random. It's so fun to read ... the world always seems like a better place after a bit of fresh air like that.

You owe me a new keyboard, RP!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to clean up the latte that came out threw my NOSE.

HHAHAHAHA! Wonderful!

My son's Kindegarten teacher told us at our first parent night that she now knows which dads don't wear pjs. So you nay not be the only one sharing with the rest of the world.

All I have to say to that is, "Hmmn."
