Well for those of you that are new or have just plain forgotten about me because it's been so long, I am Lady Di. You know, the best good friend that Amy mentions from time to time in her posts. You know, the one with the goofy 8 yr. o ld son known as JD Boy because he is obsessed (understatement) with John Deere tractors. I have two daughters as well, but JD Boy gets the most press on the blog because we have such interesting, unique and sometimes just ridiculously, outrageously funny conversations. He also is famous for spouting off the most random comment or question. Since it's been such a long time I thought I would share some of our more memorable chats.
JD Boy: Hey mom did you know that army ants are strong.
Me: Uh, okay.
JD Boy: Yeah, they can carry a caterpillar. I think they live in Africa, not in New York.
Me: And why would you think they live in New York?
JD Boy: You know because Uncle Matt lives there, but I don't think they live with him.
Me: And why would army ants live with Uncle Matt?
JD Boy: You know because he was in the Army.
Me: OHHH-KAYYY...so what do you want for dinner?
"So how many years did it take for Abraham Lincoln to invent the light bulb?"
Let me set the stage for this one: JD Boy is in the shower and I notice two large rug burns on back of each shoulder. Earlier that day he had been freaking out at a cousin's party, running around saying his back was on fire because his older cousin dragged him out of her room. Older cousin said, "Well, he wouldn't get out of my room." OK, so of course I was like "whatever" he is being dramatic blah, blah, blah never looked at his back until the shower. This is the following conversation about the rugburn.
Me: Well, your cousin shouldn't have dragged you across the room BUT YOU should get out of people's rooms when they ask. You know, she did that because you were being stubborn.
JD Boy: Uh, I asked her to do that.
Me: (thinking AH-HA) So, you asked her to do it?
JD Boy: Yeah. She said, "Do you want me to drag you out of here?" and I said, "Yeah".......but I forgot about the carpet-fire.
Me: (big sigh) You mean rug burn????
JD Boy: HUH???? (he looks at me like I am the one who is confused)
Me: (big sigh while shaking head) OHH-KAY well, are ya done in there? It's time for bed.
Well, that's all for this post. Trust me, there are more where these came from.
