Has anyone ever said something that was so shocking you just started laughing, especially your children? If so, you should enjoy this story.
This past Saturday my wife was attending an all-day conference. As a result, I got to spend the entire day with my daughter. I can’t wait for these times. They are well planned out in advance. You see, I want to create great memories and at the same time not bore her to death! I also enjoy them because these are a few of the times when I can simply hang out with someone who is agendaless and wants nothing from me except my time.
As we were having lunch at the Atlanta Bread Company, I began to talk to her about boys. I was actually very impressed with her reasoning and thought processes. Her mother has done a very good job with her in this area.
Here is how the conversation went:
“Daddy, I’m not planning on even having a boyfriend until I’m 16. But there are some things that could change that.”
“What could change that? How good-looking he is?”
[And here is comes]
“No. I’m more interested in the spiritual. Looks aren’t that important to me. I mean, mom married you.”
Upon hearing this I just started laughing. What else are you going to do. I just laughed. However, later that day I decided to schedule an appointment to have her eyes checked! The girl is obviously blind!
Kids say the darndest things. What incredibly funny things have you heard recently from children?
