What a 6 year old thinks.

Post by unsivilized » Fri Nov 17, 2006 4:25 am

Thought id share what happened on a car ride to a meeting with a group for deployed family members.

Little Eric was in the car with me and Raymond, when Eric said he misses mommy, I asked if he knew were mommy was, he said "yes, iraq" i said "do you know what mommy is doing in iraq ?" he said " yes, saving the world" i couldnt say anything i just went silent and started to tear.....
For those that dont know Eric is my oldest son, Jr.

I don't intend to step on toes or tell you what to do, but hey, daddy, teach yer son what you want to, isn't that the point of having kids so that you can put your own propaganda in to their cute little heads? Mine (if I have any) will believe that the moon is made of swiss cheese and that I won the Nobel Prize until they're old enough to find out the truth on their own :)

My son would believe that the surface of the earth is radioactive and too dangerous to be above ground because of world war 3.

Just so I could lock him in the cellar and not have to take him anywhere. Or maybe even try and make him turn out like michael myers?
