“Phil-ism”…something said or done by The Younger Boy that incites laughter, bewilderment, or joy.
Today’s Phil-isms are brought to you by the phrase “Lord help me,” which I say often in relation to this child.
“Don’t you hate it when your sink messes with you? You know…when the hot water comes out cold, and the cold water comes out hot?” –Philip, age 6
“Ummm…I think you’re turning the wrong knobs.” –Me
“Hm. I never thought of that.”
“Philip, you can’t watch Power Rangers before going to bed! You’ll be doing karate flips off of the top bunk.” –Me
“That’s why I’m on the bottom bunk.”
I have a tire in my trunk that needs repair. Looking in the backseat this morning, The Younger Boy says, “Whoa, Mom! You drive like a maniac! You were driving so crazy that the tire flew off the car and landed in the trunk!!!”
Everyone’s a critic.
