Not easy being green

Proof #1231 that I’m a good father:

As we were leaving the house this morning, I realized that TheMonk was not wearing any green.

“I can’t let you get pinched, big guy!” I tell him.

He looks at me and smiles. He agrees.

We go back upstairs and find him some green socks.

“There!” I say after putting on the socks. “Whew! That was a close one!”

As we get to the twins’ daycare provider, I show her that TheMonk and Swee’Pea are wearing green and that it was a close call with TheMonk. “Well, it doesn’t matter” the daycare providers says with a smile. “He gets his cheeks pinched anyway.”

Well, dude, I tried. I really did.


  1. Those cheeks do look very pinchable. Mine aren’t wearing green. But I’m Polish, so what can I say.

  2. The Peanut Butter & The Jelly are proudly wearing green today as they do have some Irish blood in them.

  3. No Irish blood here. Some Scots, some German, mostly British. But what’s with the pinching?

  4. I tried, but Claudia began her day by rubbing her breakfast – which happened to be an entire banana into her shirt, and Ian demaned his “soccer” shirt.

    If they get pinched, it is their own fault.

  5. I miss those cheeks! I need to smooch those cheeks!

  6. I gotta say, those sure are some cute babies! And certainly some pinchable cheeks.

  7. We have green here! I have to agree with everyone else – those cheeks are prime pinching opportunities. :)

  8. Maybe the lack of green would have gotten him pinched somewhere other than his cheeks, giving them a much needed rest! :)
