What I Overheard

Last night, I didn't go to Trivia. Kory had homework and Andrea and Jeremy had church to attend. So my mom and I went out to eat and to a movie - Just Go With It. The movie was great! Really funny. I loved it.

We ate at Perkins because it was Customer Appreciation Week and they had some really good deals. A family of five sat behind me. Two little boys and a girl. I overheard a lot of their conversations, and I just have to share some of what I heard, because it was so cute.

The mom to her son: "I love you too much to argue with you."

The mom asking one of her sons: "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
He replied, "I want to be an electricity man like my uncle!"

The two boys conversing about K-Mart across the street: "How many cars do you think are out there?"
"20-30, maybe 55."
"I think 2." He laughs, "No, I don't think 2. I was joking." He laughs more.

It was just so fun to listen to these kids talk. And while they kept me interested, the little girl in the high chair kept smiling at my mom. I'm happy to say that these kids didn't complain or scream or cry about anything after their mom said, "I love you too much to argue with you." Good parenting. Good job!


  1. This is my first time here and I enjoyed my visit! I love to eavesdrop on peoples conversations and have dinner with my mom. So fun! =)

  2. Aw, I love it when parents know how to be with their kids. I can't tell you how many families my mom and I came across this week on vacation who let their kids act insane - crying, screaming, wailing, flailing. And what was so bad was that the parents just seemed to ignore their children while they were having their little temper tantrums. It makes you wonder what their home life is like for their kids to act out like that in public. Now, I don't know the first thing about parenting, because I've never had kids, but there has to be a reason why kids act out like that in comparison to why kids act the way they do like in your post.
