Crazy Conversations

** A conversation with Benen during supper.

Benen: Mom, you and I are kinda the same.
Me: How's that?
Benen: Well, your skin is kinda peach and look, my skin is peach.
Me: You're right. We are the same.
Chad: Benen, what color is my skin?
Benen: Well .... it's .... it's mostly just hairy.
Chad (trying not to laugh): Oh. I guess it is.
Benen: See this? (Holds up his arm and squints with one eye) I've got some little hairs, too.
Chad (looking closely): Yup.
Benen: Dad, when I grow up, I'm gonna be big and hairy like you.

** A conversation with Chad while watching a movie.

Me: Oh, you have the subtitles on. Good idea.
Chad: That's me. Smartest guy in the world.
Me: You are. You married me.
Chad (slight hesitation): Really not that smart.

Chad claims he wasn't referring to my last comment when he said that, but I'm not letting him live it down.

Oooo! Bad Chad!!!

LOL on the hairy comments. I do believe Todd has had a couple of those from his kids when they were much younger. Now he scares Taylor by saying, "See what you have to look forward to," as he lifts up his shirt.

We scared our kids by taking them to a southern FL beach with old people in Speedos. Now, altho we still don't look so great to them, they aren't quite as grossed out by us... 0:o)

Jenster - Chad pulled up his shirt, too, and Benen's eyes almost bugged out. LOL! It hasn't reached the 'scary' factor yet. He's still in awe. LOL!

Barb - LOL! I'm remembering that one for later. ;-)

Lisa - I have no doubt. ;-)

Katybug - I never thought of it that way, but it is. My kids make me laugh everyday.

Hahahaa! Benen gots some big dreams there! Hopefully his hairy aspirations come true. lol!

Did Chad actually try to talk himself out of that one? HAhahaa!

Deb - He tried, lol, but I didn't let him. I think my jaw actually dropped open when he said that. :-D
