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.

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.

Here is another conversation we had with our kids today at the dinner table.

Setting: Eating fish and discussing rather or not we (Rhonda and I) are still “hip”:

Rhonda: HEY – I USED TO BE COOL!! (Notice the key words “used to be”).

Micah: It’s not that your old – its just you guys are a little too adult to be fun.

Today I thought I would post about a couple of conversations Rhonda and I have had with Micah, our 9 year old son. I am sure in days to come I will share some from Megan as well.

Setting: Rhonda and the kids at Blockbuster.

Rhonda: Hey guys, this was a movie that came out when your dad and I were in high school. (Looking at the back cover.) Yes, it came out in 1988.

Micah: WOW – is it in black and white!
Setting: The kids and I hanging out at the house.

Micah: (with a very serious tone and look) Dad – are you sure Megan is not an alien from another planet.

Megan: MICAH!!!
Micah: Father, are you jealous of my thick, luscious hair?

Me: (Outloud) No – I am very happy with my current hair count. (Inside) VERY MUCH!

Here is how a recent conversation with Micah went just a few days ago:

Describing his experience in the hospital:

MICAH: I would say this has been the second worst experience in my life.

(Mom and Dad with questioning frowns on our face.)

MOM & DAD: Micah what has been the worst experience in your life?

(Micah with a twinkle in his eye)


This is how we know he is back to normal!!!
