License to Drive

R shows up in our bedroom in the morning.

R – Mom, I don’t have any clean underwear.

Mom – We need to buy you some more.  Can you get in the car and go to Walmart for some underwear?

R – Umm… I think I’m not old enough to drive a car.  I think you need to be like 15 or 16.  I don’t even know if I could get a license.

Dad – Well, can you ride your bike to Walmart, then?

R – Not without underwear!


Groooovy, baby!

B brought this one home from school.

Getting to know you

R’s tribute to Dad (a fill-in-the-blank sheet he was given at church):

Ancient history

R — Mom, what was your favorite thing to play when you were little?

Mom — Hmmm… I’m not sure.

R — Well, did you like to play with remote control cars and trains, like me and B?

Mom — I didn’t really play with a lot of remote control toys.

R — Why not?  Electricity hadn’t been invented yet?

Weight control

B — Dad, how much do you weigh?

Dad — About 170 lbs.

B — Is that about the same as what a car weighs?

You are all the present I need

B’s inventive spelling doesn’t take away from his sweet message.
