He's so MY son....

I actually got up and made a family breakfast yesterday, homemade waffles (with pureed sweet potatoes for some hidden veggies), turkey bacon and fresh strawberries. We all sat together and talked and had a great time....love family meals together! Anyhow, this is how the conversation went:

Jake: I love Star Wars (it was on Friday night and we watched it, commercials and all, even though we OWN the movies...why is that? ...OK, I digress)
Isaac: I love Star Wars the most
Jake: No, I do
Isaac: I do, because I play the game AND watch the movies
Me: I actually think Dad likes them the most (Jason, nods his head in agreement).
Jake: Fine, I like decorating shows the best (yes, Jason winced but did not say anything)
Me: (trying to be gender neutral--you know because I'm such a together-21st-century mom) That's my boy. (and yes, Jason did wince again)
Jake: Mom, I was trying to get you to argue with me.
Jason: Now, THAT's your boy.

Yep, I saw that about my youngest, he may look like his daddy, but he's 100% his momma on the inside!!!! (which most days that's ok)

Jason and I must have gone to the same school. When my kids act up, I tell my wife they get that from her.

Hahahaha! Keep him away from decidedly unChristian decorating shows like "Chrisssssstopher Lowel!"

Huh. My oldest is JUST LIKE ME! Obsessive, compulsive, people pleaser, intelligent (except about people) but don't tell him that.
He is JUST like his Daddy. After all, he copies him and works hard to be just like him. Poor thing.

What's turkey bacon ?...

Rock Chef said...

No, I like Star Wars more!

Do your kids play the Lego Star Wars games? My kids love them, even more than the serious Star Wars games.

Too funny! My husband looks at me at least once a day and says something like "gee, I wonder where he/she got that?"

BTW, I completely agree with you on 'Knocked Up'...ugh.

Love this -- it made me laugh -- and also made me think "Maybe I CAN have waffles, if I puree sweet potatoes to put in them!"

SIS---turkey bacon, is just regular bacon, but they make it out of turkey so it's a less fat and more protien...and rock chef..yes, they LOVE star wars legos!

Add Humor and Faith...Sneaking veggies in our food has been a fun game for me and the boys...they see if they can taste it...I'll put cauliflower in their mac and cheese....

daddy forever and diva...seriously it can't be a bad thing that our kids take after us in some ways...right?????even with the quirky they get some of the good stuff...scott..i'm not a big lowel fan myself...
