What? You wouldn't have thought of this?




After seventeen years of parenting, either I am completely tuckered out, or I have plain lost my mind.

When my little girl told me that her balloon was stuck on the ceiling, I didn't bat an eye as I watched my teenage son take matters into his own hands.

There is a new Sheriff in town and his name is David.

I do believe that is called having a "boy brain"! It comforts me to see this. Now I know my boy isn't the only one who does things like that!!!

I miss you!
How's the book coming?

Did it work? Was he able to get the balloon down?

Hahahaha! Loved it! I love how a boy's mind works, don't you?

A Stone Gatherer said...

It could be there you were just stunned and amazed at how he thought of that! I know I think that often when it comes to some of the things my son does!

spit wads here, pop guns there...ahh the life of having boys. aren't they clever indeed!

Hee, hee - I love that! Looks like something my son would love to try!

Seriously, nothing surprises me anymore.

I just want to know if the balloon actually popped or if the ammunition just bounced off. And if the balloon did actually pop, did creative son climb on the counters and retrieve all those annoying balloon bits?

You can see I'm gathering information for next time we have an errant balloon.

Rebekah said...
