Words from a boy

This morning as I was fixing my hair, I had my usual audience of Brayden and Grayson in the bathroom with me. As Grayson was tugging on my pant leg fussing for me to pick him up, I reached into the drawer to get out my molding mud. The following conversation took place as Brayden looked at me bewildered:

Brayden: "What's that grey stuff, Mom?"
Me: "It's for girl's hair" as I am putting it in and fluffing it around
Brayden: " Oh, it gives you a hump in your hair?"
Me (laughing): "Yes, it gives me a hump in my hair"
(as I finish and my hair looks VERY frightening and looks like I just rolled out of bed and hadn't brushed my hair in days)
Brayden: "OOOHHH, Mom you look SCAAARY!"

So, I did what any mom would do if her son told her she looked scary....

I looked directly at him.....

I raised my hands in the air.....

And I GROWLED like a monster!!!!

then I fixed my "hump" to look like a decent hip hairstyle...

1. Brayden got caught poking his cousin in the head. He said he didn't do it. "Jesus did it" he kept repeating. He just continued to poke him in the forehead and was saying "Jesus did it". About 2 days later, it dawned on me that we had been reading the story of Cain and Abel. When Cain killed Abel, God came down and asked Cain where his brother was. Cain said "I am not my brothers keeper". But, God knew what he had done. God cast him out of the land and put a red mark on his forehead so that all people would know he was a murderer. I asked Brayden if he poked his cousin in the head because of something he saw or read and he said "yes, Daddy read me that story." Smart kid....

2. At preschool, the teachers pray in the mornings before school starts, so we are not allowed to drop off early or it will interrupt prayer time. Brayden kept wondering why we couldn't go in. I explained it to him and 2 minutes later, he asked "mom, can we go inside now? They are done pairing"

3. Brayden loves Chee-balls. Those are the cheetos puffs.

4. I asked Brayden what he wanted for Breakfast. He said he wanted the cereal with marshmallows (Lucky Charms). I told him we didn't have any. He sighed a HUGE sigh and said "Ok....fine.....I'll just have some chips"

5. We are at Kaylee's school program. He is sitting on the cafeteria table and I am sitting next to him, but on the bench. I am totally engrossed in my daughter singing and not really paying attention to what he was doing. I knew he was next to me, I just wasn't looking directly at him. He says to me "Mom, look at my butt" and I glance over and I discover that he had pulled down his pants and his butt was hanging out the back....and there were about 20 people standing behind us! He mooned everyone and I have no idea how long he had been like that!!!!!
