Heaven Help Me

A few weeks ago Middle Twerp was outside playing and wearing out some of his vinegar. ya know what i am sayin. When he came back in I asked him what he was doing outside.

He said "Playin with a bird."

Mmmmm-kay -- whatever, the kid has a imagination like no other. I made lunch, we run a few errands, take a nap and then the Twerps are back outside again.

Middle Twerp comes in all sweaty and red-faced. He goes to get a drink of water and I inquire once again what he has been playin.

He replies, "Bird Football."

Huh? What is up with this BIRD OBSESSION and what is Bird Football??

He says, "You know, where the bird is the football."

Huh?

And then he takes me by the hand, leads me outside, and suddenly...it all makes sense. Heaven Help Me!

well, look at it as a teaching moment. I guess.
I dunno.

boys and animals, it happens, but you know, they can understand these are God's creatures and maybe give it a decent burial and all.

You don't think they killed it do you? I was thinking they found it dead?

Amber said...

lol..it's funny that you didn't freak out when he said he was playing with a bird and thought it was just his imagination. What a story! :-)

Poor birdy! :-(

not to be a negative nellie...but.. dead birds out here in Cal-ee-for-nee-uh (said in Arnold voice)are sometimes dead from West Nile Virus. Had one in my yard, and when the animal control guy came and got it, he was practically wearing a hazmat suit. Pls be careful :)

boys will be boys is not a good adage to follow in life. boys are cruel and you just say "boys will be boys" so that makes it ok? Boys bully and pick on other children, or animals, and you excuse it with "boys will be boys"? wow, thats depressing.

Lisa (Jonnysmommy) said...

Oh....so now I read the post and um...yeah...in this situation...boys will be boys. Yuk! A dead bird. I didn't even think about him killing the bird....just that he found it and was kicking it around. Boys this age don't think of stuff like life and death and what is "right" or "respectful" to do with a dead bird.

But...ew...that was gross! :-)
