The Sweet Things Little Boys Say
This morning on the way to school:
Matty: You’re only 40 so you’re going to live much longer, right mom?
Kathy: Yes, I hope so!
Matty: When you become a grandma will grandma and Han pass out?
Kathy: You mean, pass away?
Josh: Yes, that’s what he meant. Matty, don’t talk about things like that, it makes me sad and I don’t want to be sad today.
Matty: Mom, if I buy you coffee everyday and drive you everywhere when I growed up, will you live forever for me?
Kathy: Aw babe, no one lives forever.
Matty: Maybe because I’m so handsome and a good boy, God will let me visit you in heaven.
Josh: We won’t get married, we will live with you and dad forever and take care of you.
Matty: I already said that to her yesterday…you can get married Josh, I will take care of them, I’m stronger anyway.
Josh: There’s 4 rooms in the house, we can all live at home until the end.
HOLY. FREAKIN. MOTHER. OF. GOD.
I took them to class and cried in the parking lot for a good 5 minutes.
I’m sure they’ll be eager to move out as they get older but it’s nice to hear sweet things like this in their little squeaky lispy voices.
I know that life is unpredictable. I know that even if you do everything right to stay healthy, there’s no guarantee of a long life but there are things we can stop to help at least prevent illnesses.
Not drinking enough water
Eating crap food everyday
Don’t stress over things that don’t matter
Especially when you have kids. They grow super fast as is…I don’t know about you but I wanna live long enough to see their kids drive them absolutely crazy and get phonecalls of gratitude from them saying “Wow, we had no idea how good we had it, thank you.”
And we should do it also for our friends and family.
I’m sure as hell gonna try.
Let’s be rad together.
Love you long time,
