Why do we have parents?
After Peanut got yelled at for changing her clothes about 4 different times, she went to Booger and asked him "Why do we have parents? All they do is boss us around and tell us what to do. If we didn't have parents we could do whatever we want and eat candy and sweets all day". Booger paused for a bit and then said, "We need Parents, God gave us parents to help us do the right thing, and to teach us what we need to know. Plus if we ate candy all day we would be fat, and I don't want to be fat, Do you want to be fat?" Hubby and I were stunned at his response. Wow. I mean really, this is coming from a 7 year old boy. God certainly knew what he was doing when he put Booger in our lives. I don't even want to begin to imagine where we might be without our son......or how 'fat' I might be....lol
