(holy dark hair, Ali!)

Josh at 6 is a pretty awesome kid.

He is by far my best sleeper and by far my worst eater. but give him a pound of chicken wings and he’ll go to town. or steak. yes, he’s all boy, my child.

He is a superhero, a power ranger, a transformer.

He is a lego-maniac. and a Star Wars freak. He loves Webkinz and Xbox.

and is a master of the one-liner. some of his greatest hits:

Josh: Daddy, Britney Spears died.

Husband: No, she didn’t, Josh.

Josh: oh right, that was Moses (yes, that Moses. from the bible. because the two are so easily confused)

“daddy! i just farted in my own face!”

husband: Josh, please don’t knee me in the balls, thanks.

emily, giggling: Daddy, what are balls? (giggle, giggle)

husband: they are the things underneath your penis.

josh: no, Daddy, those aren’t balls. they are poisonous beans.

Josh: Daddy, I will be Luke Skywalker. Who will you be?

Daddy: I’ll be Obi-Wan Kenobi

Josh: Okay, but if you see Darth Vader, don’t kill him….cuz he’s my dad.

i seriously could go all day with these…

Happy Birthday Joshua! :)

*i published this EXACT post last year on when Josh turned 5. the funny thing is, it’s EXACTLY the same. i mean, i would probably add Bakugan and Ben 10 and Indiana Jones and Wii and Super Smash Bros Brawl to the list of things he loves…but, really, he’s still the king of the one-liner, a shitty eater (unless it’s meat) and a good sleeper.

  1. I’m totally telling my daughter about those “poisonous beans.”

    Happy birthday to the king of one liners.

  4. Poisonous beans? Is that waht they are? Well, that certainly explains a lot of my behavior! Cute, if weirdly introspective kid. I like that! Probably because I understand it…

    And Ali, you don’t look old…

  5. Aw, I think Josh is AWESOME.

    He and Graham are only 2 months apart – they would be fast friends.

  6. That boy is 100 percent awesome! Happy 6th birthday!

    Six is so fantastic and fun. My youngest is six, and I get the impression he and Josh would be great friends, and not just because of the Wii. :)

  25. I hear the Moses had a recording contract and everything before he turned to religion. Rumor has it that he moonwalked down the mountain with the commandments.

  30. Poison beans, I gotta remember to teach my girls that. Sounds so much scarier than buttermilk factories.

    OMG thats funny.

    and I just learned that Ben 10 is real? My 5 (who turns 6 in one week) year old talks about benten all the time but I thought it was a mispronunciation of pretend or something like that. hmmmm….

    so anyway, I like your hair color better now. Thats just me.

  35. lol – I love the Moses line! Bearded biblical character, smutty blond singer…yup, I can see the opportunity for mistaken identity.
    I think my boy (turning two this Thursday) is going to grow up to be a comedian like Josh! If he ever hears his father pass wind he yells “Uh oh – daddy pooped!” and runs to hand hubby a diaper and wipe.
