That boy makes me laugh...

Discussing the daily text with the kids today (about Timothy), I asked them what they needed to do.  Ethylwolf {This is what I am now calling Buddy...after I thought about what I wanted to call my son on my blog, I thought it would be funny to use the name that the husband first suggested we name him, hah!}...So, Ethylwolf thought for a long time, wrinkling up his face and then said ...

"I need to control my brain."  

"How do you control your brain?" I ask. 

"Well, one time I was thinking that I wanted to punch my sister..."  

"Did you punch her?" 

"Well, I thought about if for a long time, but then I didn't punch her."  
{shrugs shoulders} 
"But I don't remember if I wanted to punch her, or kick her, or push her, or hit her, but I didn't do it.  That's how you control your brain."

So, the next time you want to punch or kick or push or hit someone, remember to control YOUR brain, and don't do it.

Kids make me smile :)

I wish my brother would have controlled his brain...of course I wasn't very good at controlling mine either. HA!

I am very proud of my young nephew that he is able to control his brain with such precision. I myself am started controlling my brain about the same time in life but later rescinded. Alex's brain is a very powerful instrument which when wielded properly will do great things.
