It's My Action Move

If you show your 3-year-old the movie Popeye, don't be surprised when he starts punching you in the nuts.

If you read superhero comics to your 3-year-old, don't be alarmed when he tears off his clothes while yelling "Naked Jet Pack! Naked Jet Pack!"

If you take your 3-year-old to the store, and he sees you buy his 7-year-old brother a bag of toy stretchy body parts (hand, nose, ear, foot) don't be at all surprised when you go to get the brother from school and the 3-year-old starts hollering in front of all the other children and parents, "Dad got you a sticky penis! Dad got you a sticky penis!"

If you announce a dance contest between your children with the intent of tiring them out for bed, don't act shocked when the 3-year-old runs around in circles bellowing "It's my action move!" then runs up to you and punches you in the nuts.

If your 3-year-old promises not to punch you in the nuts anymore, don't believe him.

I'm going to call him and teach him to say "bag tag!" when he hits you in the nuts.
I've never been gladder that I have a daughter. What? Girls do that, too? Whatever, I'm also her mother.
