8 Years Old:
Boy: Mom, if I marry a girl and then don’t like her anymore can I switch?
Mom: *shake head* No, that’s why you must choose very carefully.
Boy: Oh. *looking disappointed*
Boy: Mom, when do people get married?
Mom: You can marry in your teens but most people do it in their 20s and 30s.
You have to work hard and be able to provide for your wife and kids. House, food…
Boy: *Nodding* I have to make money.
I would like to babysit.
Mom: Yes, everything, all of creation started decaying when Adam and Eve ate the fruit.
Boy: Even the Tree of Life?
Mom: *stumped* Good question.
Daddy, Mommy said I can get the Pokemon cards for Christmas.
Dad: Why don’t you get it with your allowance?
Boy: Mommy, should we get it with my allowance or yours?
Mom: *laughing* I don’t have a lot of money.
Dad: *hooting* Mommy has a BIG allowance! It’s called a credit card.
Mommy, I realized it’s not good to be rich. People will get jealous and kill you.
You should be medium rich.
Daddy, are barbarians still around?
Dad: What do you mean? Of course not.
Mom: Honey, it’s an honest question. The Western Roman empire fell to Barbarians. He’s wondering what happened to them.
Dad: Well no, Tennyson. They became civilized. BY THEIR WIVES. They were tamed by their wives.
*family laughing* There was the male barbarian. And the even FIERCER female barbarian.

‘They were tamed by their wives.’
Well what a smart kid you’ve got there Diana, sounds like he’s keeping you on your toes. Perhaps a future blogger in the making……?
Btw, I wouldn’t leave for work every morning without my barbarian suit on, I’d be eaten alive before lunch.
Ha ha ha. Dog eat dog world….
Love the photo!

=) Thx for the follow.
Medium rich is exactly what I too believe in 🙂
Ha ha ha. Too bad that’s the worst tax bracket to be in.
This is hilarious. So does this mean that T is in a hurry to marry. I have a funny one myself (and don’t ask me where this came from, cause I don’t really know).
Boy: It’s not good to have a big bum.
Mom: Why isn’t is good to have a big bum C?
Boy: With wide eyes and open arms and big expression: “Well, it’s not good to have a really big bum”.
You had to see his face to go along with it. Hahaha.
LOL. (Can’t help wondering where it came from.) T’s not in a hurry to marry. But he hAs been pondering the big responsibilities of fatherhood and being a provider. 😛
Awwww, how cute.
He’s NERvouS about the responsibilities – bc he wants to live up to them. LOL. Gee. 8 1/2.
That’s funny. Caue’s big concerns right now all have to do with superheroes. Hahaha. He does, however try to convince us that he is not a kid. Don’t try and tell him otherwise or he goes into melt down. Hahah. 🙂
lol. “I’m NOT a kid. I’m NOT a KiDDDD!! GRR!!!!”
Funny read. Children are fantastic and so bright. I can’t wait to have this kind of conversations with my own kid. 😀
Yep. Each season brings it own challenges and its own joys. =)
Thank you for recently stopping by The Fruitful Life and liking a post. I like what I see here. Isn’t parenting a scream? 😀
Noticed that you like my review of my wood burner. I still have not used it this year, after I had flue put inside house. Do you have a wood burner?
I do not. =)
Reblogged this on quirkywritingcorner and commented:
I wished I’d written down the questions my sons asked.
The comment about allowance really resonates – I used to roll my eyes when my mom would say “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” Now I’m the one saying it…
Chuckle. You DON’T have a money tree in your yard?! =)
Thank you for your presence 🙂 love that kind of family talks, remember few with my youngest Sister, on the other note, I heard Pokemons are not good for kids for HarryPotter-like reasons…
“Mommy, I realized it’s not good to be rich. People will get jealous and kill you.
You should be medium rich.” Oh, what a wise little man! Yes, medium rich would be nice!
Very cute 🙂
Very wise point about becoming so rich everybody will want to kill us. For my own part, I’ve been working flat out to become as poor as possible so that it never happens to me.
That’s one way to go about it. =)
