Parents – Don’t Read

This is for all the kids out there….if you want to learn how to get your parents to think you are the sweetest kid in the world AND let you do just about anything you want AND buy you things, then continue reading.

Mommy, daddy, and I were all laying on the bed talking and then out of nowhere it came to me – I gently gave mommy and daddy a hug and said in my most innocent, sincere, and loving voice…..wait for it….”I’m so glad God picked you to be my parents. You’re the best ones for me.” BOOOYAH!!!!! I should be writing greeting cards or something.

You should have heard mommy and daddy carry on about how sweet I was and how much they loved me. And they are always hugging on me and telling me they love me. And the best part is that they really haven’t said no too much to anything I’ve wanted lately. Actually, they never really did – they know that will come back to bite them when I get older. But if I time these precious moments right, I should be able to get away with stuff for a long time.

This stuff is gold, I know. Kids, feel free to subscribe to my blog or send me questions on what to do. Just make sure to clear your browser history so your parents don’t know where you’re getting this great material.



Grannies rock…

….at least mine does. This past week I got two spend two whole days with Grannie because she missed me and wanted to spend time with me. The plan was for her to play hookie from work and spoil me for two whole days and give me back to mommy and daddy to deal with me. That is pretty much how it went, but I didn’t spend the night because I would have missed mommy and daddy too much. They really tried to get me to stay with Grannie, but I could tell they were just putting on a brave face because what would they do if I wasn’t there to give them so much to do and wake them up so early?

Anyway, day one grannie and I went to Glenrose, TX  – the Dinosaur capitol of Texas. We went to Fossil Rim where you ride through the park like you were on safari and the animals come right up to the car. Now when they do this they are wanting food so you either need to have some food to give them or you become food – that’s how my 5-year old mind interpreted it anyway. So the whole time I was on alert except one time when I let my guard down and from out of nowhere this stealthy llama popped his head in the car. At this moment, I knew there was only going to be one of us to survive – this was the most basic of all relationships – man vs. beast. My fight or flight instincts kicked in and since I couldn’t reach the gas pedal flight was out of the question so I did what any other manly man would do when faced with the snarling, drooling fangs of a viscous llama would do – I roared – like Simba in The Lion King. Now I thought the roar sounded like when Simba was big, but grannie insists it was more like the whimper he let out when he was a cub – here nor there, bottom line is I am here to tell the story so take from it what you wish.

After surviving the safari we went to the Dinosaur World where we got to see dinosaur bones, fossils, and statues. I even got to go on an excavation where I found real life dinosaur teeth that I got to keep. They don’t look that big so they are probably from some pre-historic rat or something, but I prefer to think they are from a baby T-Rex and the Tooth Fairy dropped them – prove otherwise!

Day two, we went to the Fort Worth Zoo. This was a blast as usual because I got to catch up with all of mommy’s relatives – not sure why daddy and grannie always make me say that and laugh hysterically when I do. It was hot, but grannie and I made sure we drank a lot of water. The only bummer about the zoo is that I always have to pose by this brass elephant every single time I go. It’s one that I have been posing with since I was 2 years old and mommy, daddy, and grannie always talk about how much I’ve grown and then they lament at how I’m getting older – circle of life people (I’m in a Lion King kind of mood I guess).

Dipping dots at the zoo…

How could you not want to spoil me Grannie?

Girl’s Night/Guy’s Night

Mommy had her BFF’s bachelorette party Saturday night and I wasn’t invited because mommy said it was where a bunch of girls got together to read Bible verses and sing hymns all night and that I wouldn’t have  that much fun. So daddy and I had a guy’s night. First we started off at Chuck E. Cheese – video games, pizza, prizes – so choice. Then we came home and watched UFC 148, drank a few cold ones (root beer), rough-housed, live tweeted, and stayed up late acting like guys. It wasn’t very intellectually challenging, but we’re dudes – we grunt and scratch – the bar is kind of low. And in the morning we’re going to top it off with some Waffle House – scattered, smothered, covered please.

‘Cause Baby, You’re a Firework

Just like Katy Perry sings – I am a firework, but this week was about the 4th of July and not just me. For the holiday, I went with my folks to my uncle David’s lake house for our Cousins Retreat 2012 and had a blast. I got to spend a lot of time with cousins I don’t get to see very often – not that I talked to them, I just got to spend time with them.

We spent a lot of time at the lake – they have a beach where all the boats park and we get out and play in the water. I also got to drive the Sea Doo – this time it didn’t break down on us. And when I say I got to drive, I mean I actually pressed the gas and steered us. Daddy said I did awesome, but that I may want to hold off on going so fast just yet. That was definitely the highlight of the water fun for me.

Later that night we were able to see the fireworks show at the lake and also fire off some of our very own. The video below is some of our work.
