LOOK WHAT MY KIDS SAID THIS WEEK
- "I wanna kiss a girl." - my 6 year old son. Don't jump out of your seats! He was just singing along with Kris Allen on American Idol. My son loves music, and easily becomes obsessed with a song. I think he has watched the American Idol finale about 20 times.
- "Mom, I don't want to watch all girl movies." - my 9 year old son. My poor boy had to hunt through bunches of DVDs to try and find a movie that would meet his princess sister's approval. She insists that every character has to be a girl. Can you believe that he somehow got her to watch X-Men? She said that she liked watching the "girl X-Men fight the bad guys". Her brothers were happy that they didn't have to watch "My Little Pony".
- "Mom, what hockey team do you want to be on?" - my 12 year old son. He loves the NHL. He decided to set up a kind of fantasy hockey league and draw up an "on paper" tournmanent. It kept the boys busy for an hour or two. I was on the Buffalo Sabres, by the way. My team almost made it to the finals!
- "Don't you miss your Mommy?" - my 3 year old daughter said to me. To my daughter, all girls should always be with their Mommies. She doesn't understand why I don't live with my Mommy anymore. She finds mommies for everything. Once we were peeling carrots, she wanted one big carrot and one little carrot so she could play with them as mommy and baby. When my Mom comes to visit, my daughter will most likely ask her to move in with us. Let's see how Mom fields that question coming from her concerned granddaughter. Get your bags ready, Mom!
- "Come on guys! Let Mom watch her show." - my 12 year old son. My two middle boys were battling about something while "So You Think You Can Dance" was on. It' s the one show that I get hooked on every season. I appreciate my 12 year old's thoughtfulness at that moment. I had a rough week, so I guess he knew that I needed to escape watching some amazing, and some hilarious dance auditions. I think I got to watch 15 minutes. My rambunctious middle boys needed a referee. So glad that I have the DVR.
