The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

  • My husband and I are bilingual. We live in Canada, but were born and continue to live in Quebec. We speak French but at home we speak primarily in English. That being said we still want our kids to learn French.
  • Yesterday I was going over some animal names with my son and this is what happened...
  • Me: Dog
  • My son: Chien
  • Me: Good job!
  • My son: Yeah! (While clapping his hands)
  • Me: Cat
  • My son: Chat
  • Me: Very good!
  • My son: (Holding his rooster puppet) How do you say this?
  • Me: Coq
  • My son: Mommy I have a big Coq
  • Me: (Uncontrollable laughter to the point of tears) Yes you do!
  • Yup my immaturity is still completely intact. Maybe I'll hold off on telling him the French word for Seal.
