Girls and Buffet's

...and the things they say!  Seriously the material these kids come up with is unreal sometimes. There are days I sit back and wonder to myself why no one told me certain things about kids.  Or how no one talks about the weird conversations you have with your kids...death...cemeteries...heaven...; you get the picture. Or what about the things you never thought you'd be doing, like picking a pebble out of your child's nose OR picking/blowing out googlie eye (you know those weird eye things they use in kid crafts...the black part of the eye moves) out of their nose!! (really gives a whole new meaning of keeping an 'eye' on things!!)  Anyway, there is a point to what I'm saying here.

    A few days ago we had to go to the Super Mall to return some clothing the boys got while shopping for school with their Grandma (and FYI...there is a reason they provide dressing rooms...I HATE wasting my time returning things cause nothing is tried on...and we do this EVERY year...it's OLD!).  So off we go to return things and the store happen to have a good sale going on and we were able to get more than we went in for.  Lee got more shirts and Ian got one more pair of jeans (YIPPEE!) Hey it was a red letter day because I even found a cute shirt and it was on sale along with another 30% off!  Man I felt special!
    On the way home we passed a casino and Lee piped up and asked if for his next birthday if we could all go to the casino.  Was he serious?  Yes, yes he was.  I could see the gears in that kids head working on overtime!  Who doesn't want to go there right? They make it look like Disneyland and we drive by it all the time.  I looked at Lee and said no, you can't go to the casino for your birthday.  You have to be 21 years old (should have seen the crushed look on his little 7year old face!).  It was brought to my attention by a wonderful friend (not where Lee could hear however) that we could take him to the buffet (which I had told Lee all he could go in there and do was eat...which wouldn't be so bad in his eyes!)  I chuckled to myself and pondered what exactly that might look like.  A $25 per person buffet and all my children there to eat until they have to roll themselves out.  All you can eat desserts and drinks, and food.  I would be there for a really, really long time.  Paints a pretty picture though doesn't it? 
      We keep on driving home and I'm laughing the whole time and just laughing at the stuff kids say and really it's the stuff Lee says.  One time as a toddler (we are talking 2) he kept getting out of bed and coming out of his room.  Finally he was told to go to bed and he said no, that he didn't have to. His dad said oh?  Lee said he didn't have to go to bed because his God told him he could get up and get a toy (you really have to imagine a 2 year old saying this and with that little bit of attitude and learning how to use it).  It was hysterical!  I thought Frank and I were gonna bust a gut.  Frank of course who thinks well on his feet said well His (Frank's) God told him that a certain little boy better get in bed before he got his butt spanked.  He went to bed but not with out a fight and a few words...so many more Lee'isms with so many more years to go....life continues to get interesting!
    Much to my humor we continued about our day at home.  While the boys are eating lunch after we got home that day, we had the TV on to watch the Huskies kick some butt! (in case you were curious...Huskies won the game...wasn't pretty but they got it done)  While they were eating (because for whatever reason my boys eat slow...or I eat too fast...hhhmmmm) I was moving laundry about.  While I was doing my thing the boys were talking and I wasn't listening.  Yes..yes you read that right...I tuned them out.  They don't stop talking and I have TWO that chatter non-stop...there are days I want to bang my head against the wall. 
     Not to get off track... They were talking and all the sudden mom instinct kicked in and I heard "is that girl hot Ian?" from Lee.  It took awhile to register just what was said.  Once it registered I asked "Lee??? Did I just hear you ask Ian if some girl was hot?  Very bashful and embarrassed I heard a small ....yes???" 
  I just kinda giggled and thought to myself that I thought I had more time before they got to this point.  Actually I'm really not ready for girls...well them liking girls in that way. So I continued with the laundry and stopped dead in my tracks and thought...Wait a minute!!! "Ian??? Yeah...what did you tell Lee about the girl? Was she hot?"  A small squeak of a voice and a bashful and embarrassed voice said "Yeah...she was hot, it was the girl in the Dr. Pepper commercial, she was hot"
       There are days that I just can't stop laughing about my life!  These are some of the things that help me make it through the day sometimes!  I think God knew what he was doing when he made kids and parents...he knew we would need things like this to just make it to the next minute!  I tend to forget it a lot but I do love being a parent and I love the blessings God gave me and the job of being a parent and all that I feel that job asks of me

***On a side note...we are thinking of taking Lee to the breakfast buffet to eat and see hot chicks****

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

*****For those of you who were wondering, I did tell my boys that perhaps we should use other words to describe girls/women.  Because using words like hot and chic are disrespectful and not nice.  I asked what words they could use were.  Ian piped up with beautiful and I said that was a good one.  Then Lee...my Lee-Lee...he piped up with skinny.  I didn't even know what to say to that....she was skinny...****

   One thing at a time I suppose....

I hope you all enjoyed a good laugh...this happened last weekend and I'm still laughing over it!

Let's ring in October in a wonderful way!
