M:  If I thought a girl was cute, I would never tell you!  That's awkward.

Me:  Why?

M:  Because moms gossip and nothing good comes from that.

M;  Mom, the litter we put in the ocean, if we keep going at the same pace, will double by 2025.  I think anyone who litters should go to jail for a year.   It should be like the earth detects litter and sweeps it into a tubes that sends it to the police who tests the DNA and finds who littered.

Mom:  That's horrible, but I don't know about going to jail.  Do you think that's kind of harsh?

M:  Mom, we are not just talking about the ocean.  This affects everyone.  If we kill fish, we effect the web of life.  Then animals who only eat fish will start to die, then everything will be affected.

About a Carl's Jr. ad, "That is so rude to girls!  They make her get into a bikini for a hamburger.  That's humiliating!"

Reading the Star magazine headline, Celebrities without Makeup, "That is sooooo mean.  And they only do that to women!"

Don't save that one, I don't want to remember how nervous I felt.  No wait, keep it, keep it.  I feel proud of myself that I got past it.

Me and Ixx aren't spoiled.  We learned to live with what we have and accept what we have.


[About Ferguson]

The police are lying.  It's simple.  If his back is to them how can he punch them? You can know it's a fib by hearing that.


If you can't talk about your feelings with someone it's not really a relationship.  It's just knowing someone.

After being told he couldn't eat a cookie with an article referenced about effects of sugar: 

You base my life on articles.  You should go on your gut instinct.  Articles are other people's opinion. You read  and you read those parenting books, I know you do.  And they tell you if we get mad, to be more strict with them and then when that happens, we get more mad. Then its harder for you guys and you don’t know what to do because you never trust your instincts.  This is the truth.

I don't understand myself.  My life is a big question mark.

Daddy just tries to protect us.  He is worried that what happened to him when he was a kid will happen to me.  But he is thinking about the past, not what is happening now.




Walking very slowly carrying his plant, worried about the sun and heat, "I might be over protective. They told us we are our plant's parents, I named him Matt Kemp Jr."



Me:  You have the same chance of winning the lottery as you do of having debris from an airplane land on your head or becoming president.

M:  Well, I think I have a pretty good chance to become president.

Me:  I am excited our cousins are coming to visit too, but I am a little upset that our house isn't as clean as I would like.
M:  Mom, success and failure hold hands.



They are running a free spa at school, I booked a massage for tomorrow.  They just take invisible money. They aren't that professional though, because they don't really keep track of who has an appointment and when.  And they shouldn't really call it a spa, because they don't have like cucumbers and lotion and stuff.


M:  Your the best mom in the world.
Me: Your the best son in the world, how did I get so lucky?
M:  You didn't get lucky, you're the great parent who raised me to be great.



M:  It's too bad life is so short.
Me:   What made you say that?
M:   I don't know, it just is.
Me:  Most 8-year-olds are not thinking that.
M:  (laughs) Yeah, I know.  Well at least you are in a good place.  I wonder what heaven is really like. Is it like souls floating around or just like life only really different?



About national testing at school:

"I mean they are talking like it's all fun and games.  It's serious.  It is nationwide, the information goes to the government and it represents OUR school and OUR 2nd grade and OUR class.  They need to stop acting like it's not serious, they could get themselves fired!  What if we do horrible and they think they aren't teaching us??"

You angerized me, you put anger in my body. 

About food shared:
"It's just a gift from me to you to tell you how much I took care of you."

I can proudly say I have a daddy who cares about the earth.  


I wish I had my magical little spirit back when I used to like to get up really early.

Why do they have such inappropriate things on the billboards?  Don't they know children are driving to school??

Sunday, November 24, 2013




M:  I remember I used to be so sad on the way home from school everyday because I was thinking about what everyone else had.  Like they would say, I have an Xbox 360 and I do this...I just wanted to have what they did.  To be equally matched.

Me:  Do you still feel that way?

M:  No, I don't really care.  I just want to live up to my own legacy.

I think sometimes my dreams tell me about the future. Like not every moment is familiar but sometimes I have a moment and it's like, wait a minute I remember this.
