Today, Gavin excitedly entered the kitchen as I was preparing breakfast on this President's holiday ready to tell me something. He announced, "Mom, I am not going to go to college." He has told me this before, and I believe in promoting higher education without forcing it upon my kids. A skilled trade or some sort of technical training would also allow them a very respectable living some day and not everyone in our world has or needs a college education. So I inquired why. He explained, "I am going to stay home and go to college instead. I know how. You do it online in your pajamas."

I think it may be time to limit TV viewing again.



  1. I would take a little comfort in him not saying he was going to be in bed with her!

  2. LOL! Love it!

    My son has tried to convince us we need a Sunsetter retractable awning...and Life Alert....all things he saw infomercials about when he wakes up at the crack of freakin' dawn every day!

  3. Too funny! My kids have learned a lot from tv, too. I sold my gold this week and they were like, "Did you do CASH FOR GOLD???"

  4. Ummmm, I think I see an apartment in your basement about 10 years from now!

  5. So glad to see your bloging again. Hope thiings are going well for you. I think of you and your boys often. Keep looking up!

  6. So he is going to stay home with you and go to college at the same time. Hmmm. Sounds like a good deal if he will still do his chores.
    I am so glad to see you blogging again. 3 months without an Angie fix is a long time. My favorites was almost in the invisible stage.
    How are you and the boyz doing? Have you been working at the school. Are you still dating ? (That was a prying question. I am sorry.)

  8. So glad to see you blog again, was afraid you had given up and we would miss those funny things your boys say!
