You're my hero

I must start with a confession. This is an old story, but nothing stuck out in my mind as "blogable" today. Although, sometimes that's a good thing!

We were sitting at dinner one day and Jeremy did something great for Ben. Ben is into us keeping him safe. For those of you who followed early facebook statuses, we have an on going battle with squirrels and Ben has now decided that we need to keep him safe. So when Jeremy promises protection, Ben things it's wonderful.
On this day, Jeremy said, "I'm I a superhero?"
Ben's response: "Yeah, your just like Super Grover!"

reigniting my blog with a "dinger" of a story

At the request of my sister, I have decided to become a faithful blogger once again. Although life is crazy, this is the easiest way for me to catalog the funny things that happen in our house. Most of these things you wouldn't believe unless you were here.
This story has a number of punch lines, so make sure you read to the end!

We were sitting at dinner having a grand time and eating tacos. Ben said, "I have to go pee." Jeremy replied, "Go ahead."
Exasperated, Ben climbed off of his chair and said, "Ugh, my dinger hates me."
Jeremy and I proceeded to laugh almost falling off of our chairs. Ben ran half way to the bathroom and turned around and asked Jeremy to come sit with him.
Jeremy answered, "I don't want the wrath of your dinger on me."
Ben's response: "Jer, I won't put my dinger on you."
While I continued to laugh uncontrollably, Ben looked at Jeremy and said, "Dad, Mom's a creepy lady."

Aaaaah! Life in the Burnett house!
