Trash Talk Starts Young

Last night Jordan and I were playing SpongeBob Squarepants Uno¹. Jordan is four, but I guess I've been rubbing off on him. After a hand in which he got me with a couple of Draw Twos and a Draw Four, I said: "That's it, Jordan. You're going down."

To which he replied, "No, Daddy. You're going downer."

I'm going to be in real trouble when these boys have a real command of the language.

¹Highly recommended. Classic Uno with the addition of four "Super Absorbency" Wild cards -- the person with the fewest cards, thus the most absorbent, draws a card from each nearby source -- the player on the left, the player on the right, and the deck.

I must be a parent. I find that incredibly cute.

See, now that I have some friends with one or more children, I can put these stories in print :)
