Out of the Mouths of Babes

My favorite kid quote from within the last month comes from my second son, but you'll need some background first. He brought home one of those Scholastic "newspapers" sometime around Thanksgiving. It showed images of a Native American family in their home participating in a variety of domestic activities. My son was showing me the paper and explaining what each person was doing.

Here's my favorite quote: "The moms take their girl sons outside to teach them how to cook and the dads take the boy sons out in the woods to teach them how to hunt!"

I think I need to have a daughter.

Love it! And I bet those girly sons are so happy about being raised in domestic bliss! But having just spent a rather pleasant (not to mention amusing) afternoon in the presence of a whole bunch of testosterone-charged teenage boys I still hazard a guess that doing the boy thing is a tad easier. I can't even manage one pre-teen girl without losing my cool.

That is so funny.

That is great. I guess if you don't have a daughter that is what they would think.

When I was on my mission--the Northern Irish would ask if we were Catholic Mormons or Protestant Mormons.....same idea....

"Girl sons" That puts a whole new twist on the term "Tom boy". Kids are great!

julie, great piano solo yesterday! I think my favorite part was when your son wanted to help you play when he ran up the isle and to the piano. Amazing.

Thanks! I think that was my favorite part as well. (hee hee!) Maybe I'll write a blog about it.
