From finding him playing the PS2 looking like the lost member of The Village People to his total obsession with all things Star Wars, it's all coming out.
And when I do, they'll be a chapter called "Things Rakes said that made me laugh so hard I peed my pants".
Take Thursday for example.
Having just taken swimming lessons the other week, the little Tazmanian Devil can now jump off the side of the pool and swim, all by himself, to the steps. Only thing is, he hasn't quite grasped the concept of not drinking the pool water. Which leads to some wicked scary trips to the bathroom.
So it was I found myself taking him to the restroom at the pool for the THIRD time the other day, and he was making noises that put Jeff Bridges, after taking that laxative in Dumb and Dumber to shame.
Actual conversation between Rakes and Me in the poolhouse bathroom:
Me: You OK, bud?
Me: Are you done yet?
Rakes: Dad. Ben your done pooping, your bottom gets to breathe. BEALLY loud, Dad. Me done.
Me: :: rolling on the floor, LMAO::
Can I just say that being a Dad has it's moments?
And when those moments come, they are one's for the ages.
Over in Boston tonight, Wake went 7 innings, gave up 2 hits, 1BB, and 6 K's. JD and Manny went back to back, and Youk hit a Grand Slam and had a career high 6 RBI's in a 12-1 win over the Orioles. Throw in a Rays loss, and the boys head into Sunday .5 games out of first place.I love this team.
