  1. I know that children really do need a dad – my husband lost his when he was 5, and I think it still affects him – but still, you’ve gotta love the humor in that!

  2. OMG! Well, now I know what compression shorts are! At my age, you’d think I would have heard of them by now! Great answer though, Laura. You are doing a great job with those kid! We luv ya!!!

  3. OMG, you are so funny! Nice to see the humor is coming back even in this awkward time. I agree, a Dad would come in handy here for these things.

  4. Nah, compression shorts are the new jock straps. I don’t recall when they came into the male sport scene, but they are a bit more comfortable than the old jock straps.

    Me, I have a different problem. I’m a father, alone, with daughters….

  5. I have to laugh—with two boys of my own we have had these conversations more than once.

  6. Oh my, leave it to kids to just say it as it is.
