the quotable dad

Nathan: When will Nell be old enough that I can pick her up by her head?
Sarah: .... ???? .... NEVER?!?! .... ????
Nathan: Well, my dad used to pick me up by my head.
Sarah: .... That... explains... a lot...


Nathan: I think I get nervous about giving her a bath because I'm worried I wouldn't know how to deal with certain eventualities.  Like, if she pooped in the bathtub, I wouldn't know what to do.  I guess I would grab her out of the tub, wrap her up in a towel, and run into the bedroom, where I could sit in a corner and cry.

{Incidentally, she has never yet pooped in the bathtub.}


  1. In about 9 months Nathan can throw Nell so high in the air you will have to look away. And when Nell is 3 Nathan can hold her by her ankles and "shake her sillies out." It's not the head but, you know, still fun.

  2. Oh, wow, I love that poop quote! Your husband is hilarious.
