OK, this tops them ALL! Warning: PG-13 for language

OK, well, here's the thing...this is a true story. It starts out with some interesting, usually offensive language...however, when you get to the end, I guarantee it will make you laugh and you will see the innocence in it!

Today Greg took Carter and Jackson with him to the Bass Pro Shop, a favorite place of Greg's (since there is no Cabella's near by). While there, Carter called Greg a "fun f...er ". Greg was HORRIFIED and immediately called me to report the offense. When Greg asked him where he heard that, Carter said, "You". Again, horrified! Greg, of course, knew that was not where Carter heard it, but the fact that Carter said that was unnerving to say the least!
When they got home, Carter was sitting with me on the couch and Greg was again telling me the story of what happened. He tried to avoid saying words that would remind Carter of what he said, but Carter realized we were talking about him and looked at us like he knew something was wrong. I asked him if he was okay and he said, "I called Daddy a fun f...er ." It was so shocking to hear that I laughed out loud. Not wanting him to think it was funny, I quickly explained that it was a very bad word and that he shouldn't say it. I explained that God didn't like it and neither did Mommy or Daddy. I made sure he knew I was serious and explained that if he said it again, he would be in trouble.
He assured me he understood. Then he looked at his thumb and then up at me with a very confused look on his face and said, "So, my fun..." THEN IT HIT ME! He was trying to say, "THUMB SUCKER!" OH MY!!! WHAT A RELIEF!!! I don't think I've ever laughed so hard in my life!
Carter was also telling the truth when he said he heard it from Daddy. Just yesterday, I pointed out to Greg that Lincoln was sucking his thumb and Greg said, "So, is he going to be a thumb sucker now?" Whew! Our little 4-year old is still an "innocent" little boy!

Hope you enjoyed the laugh! I needed it!

I'll have a...

Have you seen the Subway commercial where the couple is in a fast food drive-thru and he accurately orders his meal in "fat" terms, including supersized "blubber"? His wife orders the same, but instead of the blubber, requests some "thunder thighs" and a "badonkadonk butt". We all think it's a pretty funny commercial, including Carter.
Today, we were dining at the Golden Corral. I was ordering our drinks when Carter piped up and said, "I'll have a Fruit Punch and a Badonkadonk Butt." Oh my!

Carter needs glasses!

In the past few months, we have noticed Carter's right eye drifting and looking cross-eyed (also known as "lazy eye"). We took him to a pediatric eye doctor and she prescribed glasses for him. We are hoping that the glasses will correct the cross eyes and that he will outgrow the need for glasses, but he may end up needing them forever.
The challenge will be getting a 4 yr. old to wear glasses ALL day! He looks pretty cute though, don't ya' think? =)
