How High Can You Go?

The other day my 4 year old stood on the scale in my bathroom. He was very proud of himself for making the numbers go up to 40. He got off and on again, hoping to make the numbers go higher than 40. He tried jumping and standing on one foot and still it didn't go higher than 40. Then he looked closely at the scale and saw that it went up to 300 pounds. So he turned to me and asked how high I could make the number go. Being a lady, I wouldn't give him an answer. I told him that wasn't really a nice thing to ask a grown up. Of course my kids never listen to me, so I really shouldn't have been surprised when he kept asking me and finally said, "mom, can you make it go all the way up to 300?!?!?!" *sighs* Guess that was a hint that I need to end this all ice cream diet and go back to the all lettuce diet!

Hi! Off-topic, but I couldn't reply to your comment on my blog because you don't have a public e-mail address on your Blogger profile. If you change that, you'll probably get a lot of responses to your comments on different people's blogs. It's fun!

Anyway, the cast of characters for my blog is listed at the top of the sidebar to the left. Larry is my husband, Anna my teen daughter. They were leaving for workcamp early the next morning.

Thanks for stopping by!

Alright, you made me snort/laugh. Hee hee hee! I don't know how, but Mister Man has never asked me that question (although he did go weigh himself yesterday and also weighs 40 pounds and announced that he's HUUUGE!). I love it!
