Grinchy

*Updated to add: The Dad in this "story" just walked away upon hearing Jack's judgement on his parenting skills. Perhaps he'll be a bit less "Grinchy" this season...!

An unassuming Dad was the source of Jack's full attention at Target this weekend...

Though this poor man was at his wits end, and presumably in the midst of one of those hair-raising, "please put that back", and "no, we're not getting it" shopping trips with his son, Jack was watching intently.

Jack pointed at the man and loudly proclaimed for all to hear, "Daddy, that man is the Grinch!"

  5. You know, it really makes me wonder what other kids (or parents!) are saying about me when I've got one screaming, one whining and one looking shell-shocked as we walk the aisles of my favorite stores. What's the female version of the Grinch? BTW, was *was* the dad's reaction?

  8. Oh, goodness -- well, at least you have a blog to document it in! :) My son said something similar the other day about a scowling elderly gentleman. He said "Mommy, I think that man needs to remember how to smile! He's too grumpy!"

  15. Patrick has a similar story from when he was a kid. He was enamored with a black man in line behind them at a store. He turned around and said to the man, "You's gots big lips!" His mom wanted to crawl into a hole. :)

    Great story!

  16. If someone is being Grinchy, my son calls it being "like Rabbit" (as in Winnie-the-Pooh). And yes, he points out when I'm being "like Rabbit."

    Love their honesty.
