Mom 101 The Dragon, the dentist and the Silver Marker!?!??!

The Dragon, the dentist and the Silver Marker!?!??!

Today 5/29 my 4 year old son Brandon explained to me why him and his brother Quinn my 1 year old can not go to the dentist tomorrow...  here was our conversation
First off "There is going to be a dragon there and we won't be able to get by him."  Warned my 4 year old.
                   I explained "I'm not afraid of dragons and I'll demand he lets us by."
"Well then" said my 4 year old "its raining and Quinn (my 1 year old) can't swim."
               I explained "I can swim and carry Quinn."
At this point my 4 year old was getting frustrated and told me
"The dentist called and said she is sick and will not be at work."
               I told him "well I called her back and she feels better now and told us to come in."
Finally having enough of me my 4 year old said very calmly, "mom between the dragon, the flood and the sick dentist I don't think Quinn should go and he can't stay home alone so I will stay with him."
:)  I love these conversations with my 4 year old, he has a huge imagination!  I love that in his mind dragons and magic are real.  I miss the good old days when my only worry was if my mom packed cookies in my lunch!!  
I plan on writing more of me and my 4 year old's conversations I hope you enjoy them 

Today I lost my silver marker 5/30.

Today I lost a silver marker and could not find it anywhere!  After looking for a bit I gave up and deemed it POW :)  
A half hour later my 4 year old gives it to me and says "here mom I found it."  
Thinking nothing of it I said "thank you!"




.....
20 minutes later I looked at my black lab and could not figure out what was wrong she looked weird......
Because my 4 year old decided to draw silver eye brows on her!!!
 When I asked "why"  he told me:
"I wanted to make her look fancy."

Hope this made you smile!!

  1. That is so cute! I am so glad kids still have an imagination. Working with my 4th-6th grade classroom, I was afraid that tv and video games have sucked all the imagination out of them. I hope when Brandon gets older, he'll put his ideas down on paper. What great stories he'll write!

    And who knew silver eye brows is all you need to make a dog look fancy. That must have been a sight! Wonder how your dog accepted the beauty treatment. She must be really patient with your boys.

    1. :) Thank you Kris! I def. think my son will be a writer one day, he loves when I read stories to him and he loves to tell them! He impresses me everyday with the things he says!

      And yes my lab is a sweet heart! She just accepts it when my kids do this kind of stuff, somethings I believe she thinks they are her kids. When I first had Brandon Jr and he would wake up crying at night she would beat me to his crib and wouldn't leave his room until he fell back asleep. Lucy is a great dog, We love her :)
