What if there's a fire?

So, Thursday night Michael's school had a Halloween "Trunk or Treat" event. Chris was part of the set up and break down and had a few jobs to do which meant Michael was there with minimal supervision.

We let Michael walk around a bit on his own and went over some ground rules with him. Here's the conversation:

Chris: You know where the van is right and how to find your way back to the van?
Michael: Yes
Chris: You don't go on the other side of the cones no matter what! OK?
Michael: OK, but what if there's a fire? Then I would need to go on the other side of the cones, right?
Chris just shaking his head.

Would you jump off of a bridge if he did?

So, Michael got in trouble in school for doing something he shouldn't have. While discussing it, he mentioned that "RJ and his brother did it too"

Chris set up an analogy of "If they jumped off the sunshine skyway, it doesn't mean you should do it to!"

What does my boy who has an answer for everything say......

without missing a beat....."Sure, I would...because I would have my parachute and a bubble suit to help break my fall"

Daddy I have an Idea...

I need to set this up.
A few weeks ago we checked out a Scooby-Doo DVD from the library. One episode on the DVD was about a villain that was a counterfeiter who had a printing press in the basement of a haunted house.

A few days ago the TV was turned to a cable news channel, not CNN or MSNBC, and muted. It was a split screen of the President and the printing presses at a US mint printing $20 bills. Michael saw the image on TV.

So the stage is set; in comes our wise and curious sprog…

Michael: “ Dad I have an idea; I think Barack Obama is a counterfeiter”
Dad: “Well you are not far from the truth there…”

So the subject was dropped, until a week later when Granma and Papa came over . Michael told Grandma that Barack Obama “is a counterfeiter” and “he better not put any of that counterfeit money in his bank account”

I never knew political ideology was a genetic trait.

Michael-Scott in 2010, has more sense then most and is only 5 years old.

little known facts about werewolves and China

Chris: So Michael what would you like to be for halloween
Michael: a werewolf
Chris: OK
Michael: yeah, a werewolf with a sock puppet
Chris: I didn't know werewolves wore sock puppet
Michael: they do in Chinese!

You just can't make this stuff up!

the Earth according to Michael

I'm not sure what the obsession was with New York??? Africa is included because one of his classmates recently moved there and his class had been talking about it a lot.

should I take him to the dentist?

Oma put the silly teeth in Michael's Easter Basket. He got the biggest kick out of wearing them.

something for the bunny

We went on a train ride, hunted easter eggs, hay ride, and saw the bunny. After the hay ride everyone was getting back on the train. My sweet, sweet Michael says "Can I give the Easter Bunny a piece of candy?" He goes over and gives him a tootsie roll out of his basket.

Michael said it was because he was so nice to put out all those eggs for everyone to hunt.!!

He can be so sweet and thoughtful
