The Talk

This morning I took little man on a post-workout date to Panera to have 'the talk.'

It went something like this:

Jenny: "Joey, how do you feel about the new baby coming soon?"

Joey: "NO."

Jenny: "What are you most looking forward to about having a sibling? Having a playmate? Having a roommate?"

Joey: "baba!"

Jenny: "When mommy and daddy decide it's time to have the baby (ha) we are going to the hospital and you are going to stay with Grandma for a while...are you excited?"

Joey: "YAAAAAH .... ALLAH!"(my child has Islamic fundamentalist tendencies...what can I say?)

(uncomfortable glances from other restaurant patrons)

Jenny (shifting tactics): "So are you nervous at all?"

Joey: ...

(crickets chirping...stuffs more bagel in mouth)

--End scene--


  1. Jenny... this is great! I love Joey!

  2. ha!

    Julia held the same cup tonight at Panera with water -- and eventually spilled it --- Joey is already ahead of the big sibling game.
