The boys are big into the "Who Would Win?" books. 

Who would win--a scorpion or a tarantula?  You have to count speed.

Who would win--a Wookie or Sand People?  You have to count special moves.

Who would win--Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker?  You have to count weapons.

Who would win--a saltwater crocodile or a great white shark?  You have to count endurance.

Who would win--a polar bear or a grizzly bear?  You have to count ferocity, not just size.

So the other day I asked them "Who would win--mom or dad?"

Their response:

To the death or what kind of a battle are we talking here?

For some reason that just cracked me up.


  1. Ar least they assume that there are battles that you will win.

  2. It could be that they assume you'll win, but are checking to see if there are any handicapping factors that would give the win to D.

  3. I'm pretty sure Emma's answer would be a definite "mom". If I knew an emoticon for a smirk, I'd put it here.

  4. They have to be careful how they answer that one!

  5. Gotta have the specifics before you go into battle Mom.
    Endurance? Mom Wit? Mom Patience? Mom
    Muscle? Dad

  6. If it was a battle of folding washing wiping running its mom by a mile or maybe 26. Til the death ...definitely dad. I don't even kill spiders and I HATE them


Spill it, reader.
