Look on the internet

This blog is all about my life as a birthmom.  Generally it is fairly melancholy.  Which is a bit ironic because I am an incredibly positive person.  And the majority of my life is consumed with parenting the crazy boys I have.  Especially the youngest one.

So for a little levity, here is but one of the many little quips that D had for me last night.  This kid makes me laugh out loud. (And he makes me pull my hair out and scream, but those are other stories.)  He is 10 years old and knows just about everything.  Just ask him.

D: Do you know what the center of the earth is made of?

Mom:  Yes, magma.

D: WRONG! It's iron surrounded by magma.  And it will take billions of years to heat up the other layers of earth and melt them too.  Since the earth is only 2,000 years old, that will take a long time.

Mom:  The earth is much older than 2,000 years.  Jesus died 2011 years ago.  That is when we started counting years.

D:  I didn't know that!  That's cool that we started counting when Jesus died.  Who was Jesus's dad?

Mom: God, but Joseph adopted him as his son here on earth.

D: That's what I meant.  I know Jesus is God's son.  I just wondered who his dad was.  When is his birthday again?

Mom: Remember we celebrate it at Christmas time. But no one completely knows when his real birthday was.

D:  It doesn't tell us in the Bible?

Mom:  No.

D:  Why don't we just look it up on the internet?

I burst out laughing.  I love that idea.  If the Bible doesn't tell us something, just Google it!

I love this age. My youngest son is 11 and he got to eat some astronaut food and started calling us all astronauts and I said I couldn't be one because I would get lost in space and he said no you wouldn't that is why they have you wear white!

Kids are SO funny! Just goes to show you the times that our kids are growing up...just Google it! :) That answers everything! :) He is absolutely adorable, by the way! :)

Thank you for your kind words on my last post. Waiting stinks, but patience makes you stronger, or something like that! ;)
