KU: Mom, you just had a birthday, right.
Me: Yes, KU
KU: And you didn’t like it because you are so old
Me: Something like that
Kullen: Well, I have an invention that might help
Me: So what is it
KU: It is an invention that removes oldness
Me: Really . How does it work?
KU: You put the person in one end of this big box and when they come out the other end they are younger
Me: Does that mean I would be your age when I came out
KU: You can’t expect miracles. Nothing can remove that much oldness.
Me: Thanks son. So how much oldness could it remove?
KU: About 60 years
Me: Kullen I am only 50. Thanks again.
KU leaves the room and comes back a minute later
KU: I thought of a better invention
Me: What’s that?
KU: a machine that snatches back your words before someone else hears them
Me: That’s a great idea. It might even save your live someday.
KU: That’s why I thought of it.
Me: KA you can't be doing things like that. Other people don't like it.
KA: But mom I'm an adorable boy
Me: KA, I think you are adorable but not everyone else on the planet does
KA: Why not?
Me: It's called love, KA. Love makes the people who love you think you are adorable when others who don't love you may not think so
KA: Okay, well then I am just cute....actually I am a little too cute. I think sometimes I am so cute someone might kidnap me.
Me: That is why you need to stay close to your parents and not go off on your own.
KA: I think I do have one thing going for me if I am kidnapped
Me: What is that, Karson.
KA: I talk alot. That might make them give me back.
Me: It's a definate possibility, son. A definate possibility.

KU:Mom why do you waste your time ironing my clothes?
Me: (Yes, why do I... by the time you get dressed it already looks like a truck ran over it) Because I am a mom that cares about her kids
KU: Why don't you just iron my clothes when they are on me?
Me: Because putting a hot iron on a child is called child abuse and I don't want to hurt you.
KU: So wouldn't it be cheaper to iron all the wrinkles out of your face than to get that shot? It would take longer to get all the wrinkles but you would save a lot of money.
