Kids say the darndest things

Yesterday, while wrapping the gifts, my sons were horsing around and started whacking each other with the empty paper tubes. It devolved into heavy rough-housing, silliness and a risk of material damage to things like hanging lights, etc. – they each stand about 6’2″… They seemed to have agreed to a truce, and dropped weapons when the youngest suddenly picked up a roll, still containing paper.  The paper was flapping like a flag as he waved it threateningly towards his older brother.

In defense the oldest grabbed a pair of scissors off the counter, opened them and assumed a defensive posture. We had a standoff.

Then the oldest said to his brother, in a totally deadpan voice, “You’d better have a rock.” 

(pause)  “Oh. I’m not proud of that one.”

I lost it. I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes and couldn’t breathe…

My boyfriend said, “Now look what you did. You went and made your mother cry.”
