I'm Thankful for Moments Like These

Joe-Henry: WHY can't I have a tv in my room?
Me: Because I want you to grow up smart. So you could be president, or an astronaut...
Joe-Henry: I just wanna grow up to be a guy who plays video games. (pause) And drives a bus.
Me: aim a little higher, please
Joe-Henry: Don't worry mom. I won't be a hillbilly in a tank top.

Who needs Hallmark, when I've got this kid?

Feeling thankful for conversation and communication. I think I'll make a turkey to celebrate!

He won't be a hillbilly in a tank top, but I bet he could play one on TV. Happy Thanksgiving, and a great holiday season to you all!

he is so funny! 'hillbilly in a tank top?' did you know that tank tops on men are commonly known as 'wife beaters?' I was stunned when my son told me that..
