So... after "layin' down the law" to my youngins.... my smartelic 14 yr old just informed me that I could not make such a ruling without 2/3 of a majority house vote, otherwise, he would have to consider himself living under a dictatorship.... not quite sure how to respond to that one!!
Said the little 7-yr old while saying family prayers: And please help us to be good, and do what's right, and to be able to work our little hinnies off...." Hmm? Where did he EVER hear that one!
"Mom... when we go to bed it's like recharging a battery, isn't it?"
Which movie do you want to watch, to the 4 yr old... Pete's Dragon? "No that's too scary.... I want to watch Jurassic Park!!!"
Walking down the grocery isle... trying to have the little 3 yr old keep up with me... the store clerk happened to be stocking the milk... I turned back in time to see the 3-yr old take off his hat he was wearing and wack the store clerk right in the backside as he walked by....
After a scotch-blessing was given to a 7-yr old on how important it is to always be truthful, he replied by saying.... "I'm trying so hard.... but that mean old devil..... he's playin' hardball with me!!!"
13-yr old..." I know now why Heavenly Father doesn't let us use magic.... it would make things too easy and then we wouldn't learn to work!" Finally!!! I think he gets it!!!
The little 8-yr came home from school the other day, telling me that his friend has over 200 girl friends... then he informed me that when he goes to school the next day, that his buddy was going to give him some "safety" tips about girl friends.... like, how to be cool, and all that sort of stuff. Yep, you gotta be careful with those girls.... who wouldn't want a safety tip or two!
