What the duck?


Yeah, so, the Spawn has been carrying around a rubber duck for three days.

He’s been sleeping with it. He’s been eating with it. He’s bathing with it (duh). He took it to the nanny share this morning. When she asked him if she could hold it, he handed it to her and then he immediately took it right back and held it to his chest. I think it’s the first toy that he really, really loves. I think he would be upset if something happened to it, which means I need to go to the store and buy a backup rubber duck immediately.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. it is just the right size for him to carry around. I think it is cute that he loves his little ducky. Since he is teething it probably feels good on his gums!!!

  2. Install a tracking device. Get it fingerprinted and photographed and placed on file with the missing duckie people. Because if lost I’m sure he would notice a difference. Maybe like a mother bird–reject the foreign upstart. Oh, what a pickle… Keep track of the original. Couldn’t begin to tell you where my duckie is.

  3. Don’t get one replacement, get at least two. And start rotating them in as soon as you can. If you wait too long and something happens to the old, chewed-up one, he’ll notice the shiny new one and be pissed.
