His wife better own a chicken farm

This morning I've been painting (and painting and painting). My arms are noodles as I type, that's how tired they are. Around noon my 8 year old came in and said, "You're still painting?"

"Yes,"I said, "and I'm getting tired." I'm a results girl, after all. Instant gratification, y'know? Tedious edge-painting be hanged.

"Don't you like to paint?" he asked.

"Yes," I admitted. "Just not for a really long time."

"I like doing things I like for a really long time," he said. "Like, I like to eat chicken for a really long time!"

This is why I can't wait until Cameron can talk. I love the things they come up with, always with a perfectly serious look on their little faces.

It is nice that he stays present and enjoys all of his chicken eating moments! ;~)

See, now the next time I eat chicken, I'm gonna remember to take it nice and slow and enjoy every second. Hmmm....sounds like a trip to Rack and Soul is in order....

he is old enough to talk, he is old enough to hold a paint brush


of course if he is like my 4 year old it means you have to go and clean up a bigger mess than you have ever seen later....

That title wins the "Best Title I've Seen" award. Not a real award, actually, I'm just sayin...

That sounds like a hint to me, "Hey mom, when's lunch!"

I can eat chocolate for a long time, too. And I love to paint.

I laughed out loud the first time I read this, and now I'm making blogging chick rounds, and got a 2nd laugh. That's really good mileage for one post!

I love it - the story, the 8-yr-old, the noodles-for-arms.

Paint a mural on the hen house wall.

Very funny. I hate the edge painting, too, but do love the results. I guess I could read, or blog or surf for really long times.
