Texting With The Boy...

On Tomatoes…
 
The Boy:  What should I do with a half of a tomato?
 
Me:        Um…wrap it up and leave it on the counter.
 
The Boy:   But, I already put it in the refrigerator.
 
Me:        Then why did you ask me what to do with it? 
 
The Boy:  I dunno.
 
Me:   By the way, what are you doing with a tomato?  (I ask because he hasn’t eaten a sliced tomato since he was 2)
 
The Boy:  I made a sandwich.
 
Me:        But you don’t like tomatoes.
 
The Boy:   I still don’t like tomatoes.  I didn’t do it for me.  It was done for the sake of the sandwich.
 
Me:  Stop texting me. 
 
               
On Getting a Puppy…
 
The Boy:  Can I get a puppy?
 
Me:  No
 
The Boy:  Why not?
 
Me:  Because I’ll be the one left to look after it.
 
The Boy:   No you won’t.  I’ll feed it and take it for walks and clean up after it and it can stay in my room.  You won’t have to do a thing.
 
Me:        Have you fed your goldfish in a while?
 
The Boy:  No, I keep forgetting.
 
Me:  If you had a puppy in your room, it would have died by now.
 
The Boy:  Good point.

Harsh lessons, but parents have to teach them. Oh why can't kids come with a USB drive to just upload information?!
LOL! That is hilarious! Hope you had a great weekend!

LMAO I think we went through about 2 dozen vermin (assorted mice, rats, hamsters etc.) before my Midget learned the all important 'If you don't feed them they die' lesson. Thankfully she hasn't asked for a new one since Lyle died. lol
