My kids are nuts!
They are always saying things that just make me chuckle and shake my head at them. I usually just call them a "knucklehead" and move on. I've decided that I need to start blogging these things so that I have them to remember and maybe even use as blackmail some day.
Here's a classic example of some Austin "knuckleheadedness":
We're talking about the new extra-curricular class he's in (cause he missed being put in Spanish on account of he told the teacher last year he was gonna be home schooled this year, don't ask. It's a post all it's own.) called "guidance" . This "class" is supposed to introduce them to different careers and prepare them for when they are ready for that decision? Um yeah, still not really sure.
Me: So, what do you think you want to be when you grow up Austin? An architect?
Austin: (with very bland, dry emotion, typical Austin) Nah....
Me: An engineer?
Me: A chemist?
Me: doctor? lawyer? what?
Austin: (straight faced and without missing a beat) Superman
If he was 5 I'd say, "Aw, how cute!", but he's almost 13 so I chuckle and say "Knucklehead!"
