Out of the Mouths of Smart-Alecs

Daddy and Son, having a pre-bedtime conversation on the way up the stairs while Marla is sitting on the couch engrossed in American Idol yet alert enough to catch the following:

Jeff: Time to go to bed buddy.

Exasperated Jacob (age 4): Dad, how dumb do you think I am?

Marla pushes her face into couch pillows to stifle laughter. Jeff rolls eyes heavenward, keeps walking up the stairs without missing a beat, kids still in tow. All in a day's work, right Jeff?


  1. Jeff is way smarter than a 4-year. That's why he just rolled his eyes and kept trudging up the stairs. Reminds me of Kenny Rogers, he knows when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em and when to just plain ignore 'em. Love, the Mom

  2. oh - JEFF is way smarter than a 4 year old! that is obvious!
    however i'm not so sure jacob was convinced. he REALLy didn't want to go to bed.
