Sunk in Depression

(Because summer vacation will do that to you).

Conversation between my 11-year-old son (Thomas) and my 7-year-old son (Matt)...

Matt: "I just love my blankies! I'm never going to give them up!" (snuggling face into blankies)

Thomas: "Well, Matt, you are going to have to give them up soon enough, when you are dead."

Soon? Dead? WHAT?

I told Matt that he could have his blankies for another 80 years or so, if I have any say in the matter. Then I gave him a big hug. He didn't seem too bothered by Tommy's comment.

And then I took away the Nintendo Tommy had been glued to for way too long. What is it about those things that makes my usually sweet kids MEAN?

Yes, I agree completely. And he's generally a pretty cheerful kid. Too much nintendo ds does this to him.

So, no more ds today. He's SO PLEASED with me, let me assure ya. Ahem.

That was a smart move on your part mama. I wouldn't have thought of it.

Why, thank you, Dana! That was very nice of you to say! ;)

Oh dear. Brothers and video games. These stories sound very familiar to me for sure. Hope things are better now.

Happy weekend to you, Chris! :)

Boys are just silly.

Hi ALF!

And they never grow out of it, do they? :)

Chris said...

Hi Daisy,

I'm sure you have lots of great stories about your boys! I so enjoy seeing what fine young men they've turned out to be. You must be so proud.

Out of the mouths of Babes and Boys. Silly and occasionally logical. At that age 80 years is forever. :) Nice going.
