A Floyd Christmas Eve

Posted in Christmas, Conversations with Micah, Family, Personal Updates with tags , , on January 15, 2011 by Lee

Recently, Micah, was given a writing assignment at school. ‘How did you spend Christmas Eve?’ was the assignment. Here is what HE wrote:

My night before Christmas begins with me and my family coming home from eating out. We always go out to eat on Christmas Eve. When we get home my parents let me and my sister open one present. After that, we all gather around and watch “Holiday Inn.” By the time we get done with the movie it’s one in the morning so it’s Christmas day. We end up opening all my presents. And that’s how I celebrate my Christmas Eve.

Pretty accurate I must say.

Here is a recent conversation with my son. It is brief. It is a sign my son is moving ever closer to a teenager.

Micah: “Dad, I am growing up.”

Dad: “Micah, why are you telling me this?”

Micah: “When boys grow older they become interested in girls.”

So, I’ve just been informed my son is interested in girls. So it begins.

Man Time with Micah

Posted in Conversations with Micah, Family, Personal Updates on January 19, 2010 by Lee

Micah and I had our “Man Time” this past Saturday. We hit the new ‘Cork and Pig Tavern’ Fantastic pizza. You need to go.

Before that we hit the bowling alley and knocked around the pins.

Our discussion went from Dallas Cowboys, best pizza around, comic books, best comic book movie, super heros, and Abraham’s obedience.

We had a great time.

Setting: Family sitting at the dinner table enjoying some Chicken Empanadas.

Mom: Micah, this is a type of food you can eat with your hands.

Micah: (in his best Simon/British accent) Mother, I am not a savage – I am a gentleman!

(This was just after he pulled his shirt up and starting rubbing his belly at the dinner table)

Setting: Mom, Dad & Megan browsing through JC Penny’s

Megan: Mom, I am going to get a shirt that says, “Some one needs to spend Daddy’s money!” (She throws a coy smile at mom, along with some attitude, and adds) And its not going to be you!

I wonder who she is implying will spend my money.

More from the mouths of M & M

Here are a few more insights from Micah and Megan. I was able to laugh at these after the shock wore off.

Megan and Dad sitting at the table a few weeks before her 9th Birthday.

Dad: Well, Megan you are soon to be nine years old. What do you think about that?

Megan: Yes, Dad, I am becoming a mature woman.

9 years and mature woman are not equal to me. HELP!

Dad & the M & Ms returning home from swimming at the local high school

Micah: Dad, I say this in love – Your getting old. You will be dead soon!

Pray son gets to see Christmas!

I Wouldn’t go that Far!

Here is another little conversation between Micah and Mom.

Mom is browsing through Micah’s school work sent home for our review.
Rhonda (commenting on the work): Micah you are doing so well. You are making great grades and your attitude is so much better.

Micah: Yes, mom.

Rhonda: You really seem to be enjoying school this year.

Micah: (with his smirking smile) Well, mom – I wouldn’t go that far!

Rhonda: (a bit deflated – but almost expecting that response) Micah!

Micah: (With a deep laugh knowing he has zapped his mom once again.)

“That is what she wants to hear.”

Micah brings home a short paper he wrote for an assignment in school. The following discussion takes place:

Mom (reading Micah’s story): “My name is Micah Floyd. My favorite color is red. My favorite food is pizza. My favorite pet is a dog. My favorite activity is reading.”

Micah: The reading part is not really true. I put reading because that is what the teacher wants to hear, but in my head I was thinking video games.

Mom: MICAH!!

The laughter of a 9 year old follows.
