Mondays Muttered Mumblings

Sunday, after dinner, we were all sitting around talking, when the conversation turned to Christmas favorites. #1 ask Adorable Hubby what his favorite Christmas Movie was then answered for him, "Oh, yeah it's Year With Out A Santa Claus, I never had a favorite Christmas movie," he finished wistfully. I don't know what is up with #1 lately you'd think he spent his entire childhood, walking up hill in the snow, naked and starving with out the simple pleasure of a single Christmas tradition.

"Dude," I said in my super cool Boy Mom lingo, "You watched Rudolph so many times you thought you were Hermie the elf. You were convinced you were going to be a dentist when you grew up."

"Oh, Yeah..." He recalled.

"And now you're a theater worker!!!" Said # 5 enthusiastically. We all shared a great laugh.

"From dentist to theater worker, look at what's become of my life." Poor #1 this graduation thing has him pretty stressed out.

Later that night Adorable Hubby and I were in bed cuddling the three youngest to sleep. # 5
asked what was so funny about being a theater worker. To try to explain the humor I asked him what job was cooler, being a doctor or driving a garbage truck...

All three little boys lay there thinking for a minute or two then said they would much rather drive a garbage truck than be a dumb doctor who gives kids shots and medicine.

So there you have it, we're raising Popcorn Pushers and Garbage men, 'cause those jobs are way better than doctors or dentists.

Thanks for stopping by Anniethology.

"Dude," I say in my cool mom of boys lingo, "you have a very impressive family!"

My oldest wanted to be a garbage truck driver just until recently. Boys crack me up! The jobs that they find exciting are sometimes quite interesting.

I am so glad I'm not the only grown up that says "dude". It stops me saying naughty things when drivers cut me off.

We used to time our leaving swimming lessons with the rubbish truck men emptying the pool wheelie bins. They got to know us and stopped for a chat often because they know Lion wants to be a rubbish truck when he grows up.

So funny!! Who needs doctors and dentists when you could have garbage men and popcorn pushers!! LOL

At Makiah's Kindergarten Graduation (celebration at the church for all of our graduates and homeschoolers), so told the visiting speaker and his wife that she wanted to be a truck driver and grocery shopper!!

There is no shame in the game. :) My son has been fascinated with garbage trucks, men, and trash in general since birth. Each week, when the garbage man visits our street, we pull chairs up to the front door and watch the entire event. It is better than TV! LOL!

That 'dude' thing cracks me up! I guess that's what happens with all those boys! I'm gettin' there!

I love to 'meet' families with all boys. Thanks for putting a smile on my face!
