Beans has however, taken a different approach.
First off, he names anything female after me, and everything male-like after daddy. However, sometimes I swear the kid is messing with me and trying to break me via self-confidence-destruction.
These are "Mommy" and "Daddy" ... and no, I don't really want to discuss who is who.
I mean it was all fine when we were talking Hot Wheels.
I was willing to just take the whole chocolate bar themed car as Beans knowing his mommy well, rather than it being a comment about my exceptional and nutritional take on life. But a muscular one-eyed, bearded dude? Come on!!!
Feeling a bit miffed about the whole thing I packed Beans up and went about my usual errands, which this day happened to include a Costco run.
I don't know why, but the people at Costco who check your receipt at the door think that no matter how impatient and completely pissed your child is, they can cure them with a cute smiley face drawn on the receipt with a highlighter. So while Beans is losing patience and our items are being counted, I take a deep breath as the gentleman at the door flips the receipt over and begins his Picasso moment. He wraps it up and hands his masterpiece over to the Beans who takes one look at it and gasps. Three people, plus myself and the Costco employee look down at him as he proudly holds the page up and yells
Its my Daddy!!!
Suddenly, I felt a lot better about being a bearded pirate.
