Shooting pigs

Having a six year-old is pretty much Heavenly Father's daily gift to ME. Everyone should, at some point in their lives, try to have a six year-old. Really. It's a worthwhile investment.

As we were driving down the road yesterday Cameron spotted a group of teenage boys walking down the sidewalk. He pointed them out to me and said, "MOM! Those boys are all by themselves without their moms!" I assured him that, since they were big, their moms were probably okay with them being by themselves. To this he responded that he couldn't wait until he was old enough to go places without me.

Insert knife. Twist.

Trying to play it off I said, "Oh yeah? Well, where do you want to go without me?"

Cam: "Somewhere so I can buy stuff."

Me: "Oh. What are you going to buy?"

Cam: "A bb gun."

Now, we had been at the pool earlier and I heard some bigger boys talking tough about their bb guns. So I just rolled my eyes at the gun reference/request.

Me: "Well, what would you do with a bb gun?"

Cam: (without missing a beat) "I would go into the forest and shoot a pig and bring it home to eat the meat."

Me: stunned silence

Me: now laughing uncontrollably

Me: So what you're saying is that you're going to bring home the bacon?

Cam: (in total seriousness). Yeah. And the pig.


ALLLLLLSO, during the same car trip Cameron tried to convince me that we should buy happy meals because "McDonalds does such a nice thing giving toys to kids. They're being so nice. We should buy them."


Anytime you want Cam to come over and say awesome stuff at your house just let me know. He's here every night.P1040960

Awwww! And then when he's almost 10, he'll walk 10 steps behind you and pretend that he really is there all by himself, and you and Chase can giggle at the thought of him actually thinking that someone else actually thinks that he got there and is actually by himself ... buying BB guns.

Cameron is awesome. I'm slacking on sharing my kiddos recent hilarity. Here's a sampling: Gaby thought that it would be way more fun watching World Cup soccer if Uncle Chase was playing for the Germans. Owen thought that cousin Chase was getting a new baby instead of Uncle Chase. And Lydia pointed out that there's this new restaurant she wants to go to, it's called HuHor (which is actually HuHot in case you don't have those where you live, but I certainly hope you don't have the other either also too).

I feel the SAME way! Mia cracks me up all the time with what comes from her brain and out of her mouth. But, she can also be very sassy and I don't enjoy that quite as much.
