Conversations With My Kids

familyKids say the darndest things. I love conversing with my kids because they're so brutally honest and unintentionally funny it's always entertaining.

Periodically I'm going to share conversations I have with them. James is five and Michelle is two, and here's a discussion we had recently.

James: My allegiance is to the Republic! To Monoxacree!
Daddy: Monoxacree? I'm pretty sure that word is Democracy.
James: Dem-ox-acree.
Daddy: Democracy. (In my best Obi-Wan) My allegiance is to the Republic, to Democracy!
James: Democracy!
Michelle: Good job, James!

We talk an awful lot about the Star Wars universe and superheroes. Here's a related discussion we had on the weekend.

Daddy: If Spider-Man fought Darth Vader, who would win?
James: Nobody beats Spider-Man - Darth would lose!
Daddy: But what about his Sith powers? Surely his Sith powers would be too strong for Spider-Man.
James: Actually, Spider-Man is too strong. He'd beat Darth.
Michelle: I'm Wonder Woman...
James: Michelle, we're talking about Spider-Man and Darth Vader, not Wonder Woman.
Daddy: Wonder Woman would beat up Darth Vader and Spider-Man and would look good doing it.
Michelle: (To the tune from the theme song) Wonder Woooomaaaaan!

I'll share more, soon. There's an endless supply of content.

From the mouths of babes.....nothing is better and reminds you just how simple life really can be. You need to print these off and keep them in a journal to share with them one day. And by the way, James is right Spiderman.....nobody beats Spiderman.

Actually Jill, the whole reason I'm doing this is so I can keep this stuff somewhere where it won't get lost. The truth is this whole blog is really one big post-it note for yours truly.

Dude, I'm just impressed that a 2-year old knows how the Wonder Woman theme song goes. You're raising them right, no doubt about it. :)

Dude, it's YouTube. They watch old Spider-Man cartons, 1960s Batman, etc.

They know all the old retro tunes - hell, they even know The Alphagetti Gobbler!
