  • I have a 2 year old.. Hysterical. I haven't laughed out loud at something I've read since "Me Talk Pretty One Day"—and that was seven years ago! You've really set the bar high for yourself.

  • Oh, meant to add:

    I want to watch THAT show!

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, not THAT show!

    I want to watch THAT show, no, that show, no that other show, oh wait, THAT show…

    • That's my son with the sprout channel but he calls it pout!!! Im tired of chika, kipper,and the goodnight show

      • Seriously, what's up with Sprout and all the reruns. 40+ years of Sesame Street, yet all they ever play are a handful of episodes from like 2003.

        • Anonymous says:

          This may be the BEST question ever! We watch it on PBS or Sprout OnDemand and I swear since we started letting my son watch it a year ago, we've only seen 20-25 episodes.

  • OMG, So funny! I laughed, then I had to read the entire thing to my 13yo. I told her it was pretty damned accurate (we also have a 2yo).

  • Seriously hilarious man!

    You could almost interchange "inside the head of my 2 year old" with "inside the head of my husband".

  • not threatening, i swear. you hit the nail on the head with this post! also

    also, pants.
