and the hits just keep on coming....

Driving my son to Football this afternoon,
his usual headphone bound head trapped in thought....

I tap....

He turns to me....

I say..."so, what's on your mind?"

He replies, "wondering why if we are going to move we don't just move for real...."

Me: For real?

Him: up to the Avenues or something....

He continues: [talkative....yes, I am shocked]
Why not just sell both houses and all of us move in together?

By all of us he means
his Aunts and Uncles [4 of them]
his dad and myself with the kids.......

Me: Ummmm, and that would be a good idea why???

Him: Well, someday us kids are going to have to take care of the aunts and uncles as well as you and Dad.

We can have a whole retirement
community set up there!!!!

Me: You had better be able to read my mind buddy!!!!

[if you are confused about the read my mind
refer to previous post....Football Funny!]

How old do your kids think you are???


Cynthia said...

That's awesome! Well, the upside is that you're raising a boy sensitive enough to think about caring for others, right?

Mamma Christine said...

I was just going to echo what Cynthia said. Not every boy thinks so kindly, I assure you.

si tu veux said...

Hey thanks for the reminder, you are certainly right, he is a thoughtful boy. I will thank him for being so considerate, and still smile when I think of the conversation!!!!

I've already made my children solemnly swear that they would feed me, water me and change my diaper.

I'm set.

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
