I am thinking that my "Car Ride Conversations" might have to become a weekly post. I love the car ride home from church Wednesday nights...Maddie normally falls asleep pretty quickly and my little man and I get a chance to talk about his life....with no interruptions...just me and him. I love it! This is how our conversation went this week...
Me - Hey Ty man...what's new in your life
Ty - Well...I still like video games
Me - Anything else?
Ty - School is good and everyone was nice to me today.
Me - Awesome bud. So...what do you want to do this weekend?
Ty - Maybe we should go to Bailey's house
* Bailey is the girl that Ty says he is going to marry. She is the daughter of Dustin's bass player. Dustin and I love Danny and Becky (her parents) and my kiddos love Bailey and Brookelynn (yes..they are twins...and are some of the cutest/sweetest girls you will ever meet)*
Me - Why do you wan to go there?
Ty - Well...it has been a little while since we have been over there and I miss her
Me - Are you still going to marry her...when you are 35?
Ty - (laughing) You are silly mommy...and yes...I am still going to marry her
Me - Are you sure?
Ty - Yup
Me - How do you know that?
Ty - Because she told me I was going to marry her
Me - (chuckling to myself) That is a good answer
Ty - Can we have a sleep over with them?
Me - Well buddy...you are getting older...and you probably won't be having sleep overs with them
Ty - Can Maddie still sleep over at their house?
Me - Yeah...but that is because she is a girl
Ty - Well why can't I?
Me - Well buddy...boys and girls aren't really supposed to sleep over at each others houses when they get older
Ty - Why?
Me - Well...Sometimes they can get into trouble...and it is just better to not do that.
Ty - O...I get it (and he seemed like he was deep in thought)
Me - What do you get (I am now a little concerned that he might be understanding what I am actually saying...and I really don't want my little man to know some of these things yet...)
Ty - They can get into TROUBLE....you know...like big TROUBLE
Me - (hoping that we are not even closely thinking about the same thing) Yeah buddy...what type of trouble are you talking about? (Now I am starting to get a little nervous)
Ty - They can start to hang out...and get a little hyper...then...(his eyes are getting very wide at this point like he has something HUGE to say)
Me - Yeah buddy....
Ty - They can break things...like a lamp...because they are not paying attention and they are hyper because they are playing super heroes.
Me - That is EXACTLY it.
Ty - And I don't want to break any of Miss Becky's lamps because that would make her sad...and I don't want to make Bailey's mom sad.
Me - That is a good point bud...we can definitely go and hang out with them...just no sleep overs
Ty - Sounds good to me...can we stay late?
Me - Sure bud...I think we can do that.
O how I love my little man!!
