Children think they know.. but they have noooo idea!

There are worse things in life

I received this in an email today and thought it was too good not to share!

A father passing by his son’s bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to β€œDad” With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.

“Dear Dad:
It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you.
I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice. But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But
It’s not only the passion…Dad she’s pregnant.
Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t really hurt anyone. We’ll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy. In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better, she deserves it.
Don’t worry Dad. I’m 15 and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I’m sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren.
Love, Your Son John

PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at Tommy’s house.
I Just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the Report card in my center desk drawer.
Please remember I love you.
Call me when it’s safe to come home.”

Trying something new

I’m working on getting out of my Blogging slump..

This last weekend, Dylan had his imagination turned to HIGH! I guess it is also natural for a 4-year-old to have a wild imagination, but he was on a role this weekend! He was telling me stories left and right. His little mind was going 100MPH πŸ™‚

This morning on our way to daycare, this was our discussion:

“Once, I was in the ocean and there was a shark, and I had a gun, but it didn’t have real bullets, and the shark had a guy in his mouth, and the guy had real bullets so he got out of the shark’s mouth”
Wow! That sounds dangerous!

“It wasn’t too bad mom. But make sure when you go into the ocean, you have real bullets, ya know, just in case you see a shark”
Can I use a bow and arrow or a spear instead?

“Of course mom! A bow and arrow would work the same, you just gotta shoot it right so you don’t get eatted”
This sounds like a scary story bud!
“Yea, I’m full of them”

BINGO! Stories by Dylan is born!

A couple posts back, I mentioned how I need to do a better job at writing down what Dylan says. I’m going to use the wild mind of a 4-year-old to get out of this slump!

And what a good way to wind down the evening! Instead of reading stories together, we can now write them!

Tonight, we will publish *try to publish* our first story..

Stay Tuned!
