He’s obviously thought this through

Yesterday I told Brad he could not do something that he wanted to do.  It happens several times a day because he wants to do things like invite everyone he knows over for an impromptu barbecue, fly down the stairs with a bungee cord attached to his knight costume or trade his sister her valentine’s day candy for a piece of toilet paper.  It happens a lot.

Anyway, when I told him no this time he informed me he was going to run away.  I told him that was a really bad idea and that if he ran away he would have no one to take care of him, to which he responded “DUH!  Tenille!” (Tenille is my sister who I’m sure would take him in without notice).  I said, “How would you get to Tenille’s house?” (which is 35 miles away)  and he replied “I would take a cab.”  I’m not even sure how he understands the concept of a cab except that this kid remembers everything.  So then I asked “How would you pay for a cab?” to which he answered “I would hold a sale of all my McDonalds toys.”

He’s obviously thought this through, so my question is, how much would you pay for this?

oh my gosh Natalie! that is so funny. By the way, I let Jaxon take a look at the picture and asked him how much he'd pay - he said 89 dollars, which I'm sure would cover Brad's cab fee!! :-) To be 4 again, huh?!

I am cracking UP! What a funny guy you have. So - does he have your sense of humor or your hubby's? BTW - we are HUGE penguin fans over here so I'd try to win this auction with a whopping 2 dollar bid! :)
