So Sunday at church a lady was talking, (a really nice lady I am sure) she was saying in a desperate, yearning for God sort of voice, how hard life can be sometimes (then she paused, gazed up to heaven for a sign of a higher power). This may have been a very moving moment for someone not sitting next to my eight year old son. He said in a DUH, get a grip lady, kind of voice. "UH life isn't that hard, we can go out to eat, we have corn dogs, and we can play with Yo-Yo's." DUH
I think he may be on to something there.
This is the kind of thing that gets written here in my house.
This same child makes the board often. One of the funniest things he's ever said was when he was about 4 years old. I was helping him out of the tub, just as he was stepping out of the tub he let an extremely loud toot. Although I don't know if you can call it a toot. Toot is kind of a cute word. this was the kind of gas passing that changes a boy into a man. He was beaming with pride as he said, "Wo, I just paid my taxes with that one." We still use this line when someone really does themselves proud in our house.
