Question Of The Day

Lately Seth has been saying that when he gets older, he is going to have twin boys. Although I'm not sure where this came from, I do find it quite amusing.

Today, he informed me that "his boys were going to have to eat broccoli" (although the DOESN'T).

"Oh?" I said. Then, just out of curiousity, I asked him if he was having any girls.

"Yes," he said. "I'll be having EIGHT of them," he informed me.

And before I had time to react, he asked me the million dollar question of the day:

"But how in the world am I ever gonna GET so many?!" he asked me earnestly.

NOTE: He told me later today - unprompted - what ALL of his kids' names were going to be. The boys will be Jack and Oscar, and the girls will be Julie, Mandy, Jenny, Brooke, Connie, Crystal, Donna and Liz. (Think he's just a little influenced by Odyssey?)

Of course, I had to record these in the official family chronicles so I could remind him when he has his first child, as any good mother would.

As I chuckle reading this, it has been a pleasure being around the little imp these last few days. I have to say he has QUITE the imagination and he definately keeps you on your toes.

I think his next gift from "THE BOSS" will for sure have to be a Calvin and Hobbs book. :)

Ha, ha, ha. Not in this lifetime.

There is always reading them at my house! ;) I think he needs the "help" Mr. Calvin can give him...don't you?

Have you ever read the comic "Zits"? That's Seth as a teenager..... How wonderfully innocent and SO full of imagination!! I do so love reading your stories, Darla. They remind me I'm not the only mother with an insanely crazy child!! -RG

I have not read "Zits", but you've definitely piqued my curiousity, Rachel. I'll have to look it up on the internet.
