Birthday Month

Birthday month at our home has come to a close. The four of us all have birthdays in mid-April to mid-May. Our oldest son turns six tomorrow and we had his party this afternoon. It was a Captain Underpants party complete with Poopy Cake (my son's idea) and a game of Duck, Duck, Poop (mine)! He's been reading Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies From Outer Space (and the Subsequent Assault of the Equally Evil Lunchroom Zombie Nerds a lot lately.

Tonight he asked, "What's a zombie nerd?"
"It's a nerd who's undead," I helpfully replied.
"What's a nerd?"
"A nerd is someone who is uncool," Dad interjected.
"A nerd is usually someone who is really smart but uncool," I added.
My son's eyes grew bright and he sat straight up.
"Like Daddy?"
I stopped laughing about fifteen minutes later.
