Hijacked by Brandon

Mandy has been really slacking on the blog lately hasn't she? So I decided that I would fill in as a guest blogger unbeknownst to her! I've got to hurry before she gets home from work...she should be on the way right now.

So, I'm driving home with the kids tonight and we get into one of those really weird conversations Mandy is always describing...you know the ones that begin, "I never thought I'd hear this come out of my son's mouth."? Well it happened again - enjoy...

Dane: (After long discussion on Star Wars the Clone Wars) And he never even got to be a Storm Trooper!

Dad: (Wanting to change the subject and as I am want to do, choosing the most inappropriate way possible) Your Mom's a Storm Trooper! (I work with high school students - my speech patterns are considered an on the job injury)

Dane: (Serious as a heart attack) No she is not. (You don't joke around with Star Wars lore in our house)

Dad: (Feeling duly chastised) I know, I know...she's an ER nurse, right?

Dane: Yeah, a hot nurse. (My six year just referred to his Mom as a "hot nurse" - ewwww!)

Dad: (Coughing) Uh...Dane...that's really only something that Dad is supposed to say about Mom.

Dane: (Arms and eyebrows upraised, defensively) Whaaaaaat?

(Insert awkward silence here...maybe some crickets chirping)

Dane: Man, I wish I had a Death Star.

I can't possibly explain to you how much I love being a part of this family! Every day is another adventure into the world of cool, creative, hyperactive, destructive, weird, inappropriate, awesome kids. I can't wait to get old and see what kind of freaks my children and the strange people they marry will sire...it's gonna be so cool to watch!

I think I hear the garage door opening - gotta go! Hope you'll forgive the spelling, my strange use of punctuation and the butchering of the English language (Remember, I'm a youth minister!).

(But really, this was written by Brandon...oh wait, excuse me - "Hot Brandon.")

P.S. - Coming soon - "Aidan's 2010 Edition of the Infamous Rodeo Boot." It rocks!
