Future extreme fighter? And inheriting a healthy fear of sea creatures

This is transcript of a conversation that actually occurred:

N-man: Mommy, will you play a game with me?

Me: Sure. What do you want to play?

N-man: I know! You try to hit me, and I'll try to kick you.

Me, mouth hanging open: [Pause....]

N-man, with much excitement: That'd be a good game!

Here's another actual conversation with little N-man:

N-man: Mommy, I was so happy when I lived in your tummy.

Me: Oh good.

N-man: You kept me safe.

Me: Yep!

N-man: From mosquitoes. And bees. And sting rays.

Me: [Pause....]

hahahahahahah....I can't help but laugh out loud. I have five boys (teens and older now) and that is so in line with what a few of mine would come up with ;) You just have to wonder.......

HAH! Sting rays. Totally laughed out loud at that.

N-man can "wrastle" with Burke - I'm sure he'd LOVE it. ;)

but sting rays are so smooth and nice! :)

He has a point. You COULD have swam with sting rays while you were pregnant with them.

LMAO. I love him.

I think most little boys would agree that hitting/kicking is an excellent game, enjoyed by males of all ages! Must admit, the sting ray line is pretty awesome.

STINGRAYS??? Where did you live when you carried him?

What a hoot! So, did you play the game?
