So you can laugh out loud too. . .

Yesterday Corban and I were sitting on the couch talking back and forth. Somehow we got on the topic of being kidnapped and what not, so we were practicing his phone number, address, spelling his name and his parent's names, etc. And then we went through what to do if someone tells him his parents never want to see him again, or that they've stopped looking for him, etc. I asked him what he would do everyday while he was gone if that were to ever happen, and he clapped his hands together and in prayer formation said, "I would pray everyday." and then he rolled back on his backside and clapped his feet together and said, "I would pray with my feet too!" So then after assuring him that he was safe, and he would probably never be in that situation if he stayed with who he was suppossed to and didn't talk to strangers etc etc etc, the conversation went like this:

Mommy: "What could you do to ever make mommy not want to be with you and stop looking for you?"

Corban: [very loudly] "Nothing!"

Mommy: "That's right! I'll love you forever and ever and always want you with me no matter what!"

Corban: "Well, someday I'll grow up and move away."

Mommy: "That's true! Won't that be fun to be all grown up!"

Corban: "Ya, someday I'll get boring and go to work."

Mommy: "Do you think you'll get married?"

Corban: "Yes!"

Mommy: "Do you think you'll have kids?"

Corban: [stops moving, thinks for a minute, shrugs his shoulders]

"Aww, I don't know, I might get her fixed."

And then here's our school picture disaster!

That is completely the funniest picture I have ever seen! Priceless! We've had the talk like that before and it always ends in me holding back tears because to practice something like that is heartbreaking but so necessary! One thing I MADE my kids do (and they hated it) was practice YELLING "No, you're not my mommy!!". Like really yelling it! Its harder than it seems and if they ever get in a situation they need to know its ok to use their voice. Not like Corban has a problem with that!!

O ya, and it is true, none of the kids like to do the " No, your not my Mommy!!" thing. It's just plain old weird! . . . . I might get her fixed . . . . Hilarious!!!
