"What's drunk?" TD asked startling me. While she had been upstairs napping I was taking advantage of the quiet time to get in an episode or two of 'Freaks and Geeks'. Apparently she had been in stealth mode and watching the show with me for a bit.

Wonderful, I thought. She's three and already I'm having the conversation with her about drinking. I tried my best to explain that being drunk is when grown-ups sometimes drink too much wine or beer. It isn't good for them and we should never, ever get into cars with drunk people. EVER. To go into more detail than that would have been over her head. Right?

She looked at me, smiled and said, "Daddy has too much beer and then he is drunk! Then I have too much juice and then I am drunk!"

Thank goodness school is done for the year because I really don't want a phone call about that one.


  1. That's going to be awesome when she tells some stranger that she's drunk and then look at you with alarm and then nasty stink eye as they scurry off...

  2. That is amazing. How adorable. I wish I could get drunk off a juice box.
