School Shopping Funnies

Yesterday we took Jimmy school shopping and we had a reasonably good time, though he likes to push limits a bit and sometimes just says annoying things. However, I thought this conversation was hilarious.

Jimmy: I have to take Government this year.

Mom: Wow. I heard that can be hard. It's lucky your Dad is really good at government. He can help you.

Dad: Yup, Jimmy, I know a lot about politics and government.

Jimmy: I heard you have to read a lot.

Mom: Yes, and you have to memorize all kinds of stuff. LIke how many people are in the Senate, and the House of Representatives.

Dad: Yeah, Jimmy. For example, each state has two senators.

Jimmy: Does Minnesota have one?

Dad: Jimmy. EACH state has TWO senators.

Jimmy: But does Minnesota have one?

Dad: Jimmy, LISTEN. EACH state has TWO senators.

Jimmy: I know Dad, but does MInnesota have one?

Mom to Dad: Best of luck to you.


Today we took Wilson school shopping. It was one of the most delightful experiences I have ever had. He had already chosen shoes to order online, so we did everything else in one store. 30 minutes and clothes and supplies were purchased and he was happy.

Wilson loves crab, so he chose Red Lobster for his special lunch out with Mom and Dad. He doesn't talk much, but he is very witty. Here are a couple examples of the puns he made while extracting meat from his crab legs:

"Wow, this is hard to get out. I hope it doesn't make me crabby."


"While you guys were talking I just ate a crab-load of food."

Gotta love him.
