A Cute Kid Story  
This one's for 60sfreak and rainpuddle13.

So I watched Across the Universe last weekend, and I liked it.  I LOVED the music, and one of my very sweet friends burned a few songs for me.  (Should anyone want to burn the whole thing, I would accept it HAPPILY!)  So while I was cooking this afternoon, I was listening to the music.  The boys were wandering in and out, pilfering stuff from the pantry and doing homework, playing, stuff like that.

So right before the guests arrive, I'm going through the house picking up, and realize I hadn't been upstairs all day.  So I go up there and call the boys to come with me, and they helped make up the bed and pick up their toys.


Ethan.  (looks at me thoughtfully)  Love is not all you need.

Me.  Do what, now?

Ethan.  Love is not all you need.  (sings) "All you need is love"?  (speaks)  Love isn't ALL you need.

Me.  Oh, yeah?  What else do you need?

Ethan.  (Begins indignantly ticking things off on his fingers a la his FATHER)  You need shelter.  You need food.  You need clothes.  You need water.  You need -

Aaron.  (interrupts)  Batman.

Ethan.  (looks at him, considers for a moment)  Some people do, yeah.


Indeed.  Some people DO need Batman.  Everyone in Gotham City, I expect.  :)

Your kids are so cute.

Efrayim has started asking "why", and when I'm doing yoga and pose too long, he says "okaaaay" (in a very sarcastic tone) and moves me.

Holding one pose for too long is boring, Mommy!

I AM a rock-n-roll Mama! Not everyone's kids have all the lyrics to every Queen song ever written in their heads. *nods*

And he was totally making floor angels the other day again. I just have to shake my head.

Well, this explains a lot about my life. Lack of Batman. I'm suffering from a serious lack of Batman.

And who COULDN'T use more of the Dark Knight, really? One quick fix for all your problems!

Oh my goodness. I don't know whether to laugh more at the fact that he's upset that the song is lying, or his admitting people need batman. :D ROFL Your kids are adorable.

He was very indignant about it. Like he couldn't believe that I actually BELIEVED it!

All you need is Aaron and Ethan. And maybe Nolan. ^_^

Thank you! I have to post about all the cute stuff, because if I told all of you all the things they do that make me want to spontaneously combust, you'd all report me to Child Protective Services.... :)

OH MY GOSH, I didn't even think of THAT. Heck YEAH, I need me some Batman!

Oh my gosh, that's an awesome story! That's one that you're going to have to keep to tell Aaron's future girlfriends when you show them his baby/kid pictures!

Across the Universe was fantastic. :)

And also, your kids are completely awesome. Batman! ♥

We ALL do need Batman! So I'd have to agree with Aaron.
