random ramblings

things i need to never forget: 

Quite some time ago, C was sitting in the corner of the living room, talking to himself and playing.  He looks up at me and says, "Mom, why do pirates steal other people's shi#?"

?!?!?!  "Um, what?"

"Why do pirates steal other people's shi#?" 

Lord in heaven.  Please tell me I'm hearing this wrong.  "Buddy, what do you mean?"

[He sighs, because let's be honest...moms just don't 'get it' sometimes]  "You know.  They have shi#, but then they steal someone else's shi#..." 

"C, are you trying to say SHIPS?" 

"That's what I said.  Shi#s."

[Maybe we just need to say 'boats' from now on...]

who knew?!

Driving home from West Virginia last weekend, C pipes up from the backseat...

"Mommy, when you die, do you want to be buried, or do you want to be blown up?" 

"Uh..."  I don't even know how to answer this.  Who knew these were the two options?!  "Buddy, I won't have to worry - I'll be with Jesus by then.  So, you can decide." 

"Oh."  Settling back into his seat...he seemed to be pretty satisfied with this answer.  I'm wondering if I should be worried...
