Conversation #4

I make it a point to bring a small notebook with me whenever I go out with the kids, you'll never know what "funny" and/or "intelligent" things they would say! Actually I just started this recently after reading it in an article (which I can no longer find to link it here). Anyway, being a forgetful mom, I had to write it down so I would remember later on his/her "exact words." Here's one of them...

INTRO: On our way to a birthday party, I had to make a quick stop at the store to pick up some digital photos that I ordered through the internet. Hubby was at home studying for an exam to upgrade his certification. When we got there, my daughter was fast asleep in the car, so I ask my son:

ME: Can you go inside by yourself and get mommy's pictures while I stay in the car with Trish?
SON: Hmmmm... (thinking really hard)... No. I don't want to.

Then he offered me an alternative:

SON: But I'll stay in the car with Trish. I know how to protect her. Mommy, I'm strong, really strong. (referring to his recently acquired Tae Kwon Do skills)

This made me smile, he is so protective of his sister.

So I ended up waking Trish and we all went inside the store. It's a good thing that my son didn't feel like going in himself, because the store was a bit crowded. I would panic waiting in the car wondering what's taking him so long.

It's nice to know that you' re son is growing up to be a man because of your intelligent upbringing. Letting your son make decision however minor it is will certainly help him when it is tome for him to make major decision. I will link you up.

Hi Dops, hope to see more of you here.

Hi Evi, naku I don't want to think about the teenage life of my kids yet. But I do hope that they will grow up taking care and protecting each other.
