I never knew I was a BLONDE!

Our big LCD tv blew a lamp last week and I am still trying to get a replacement lamp. But, that's another post....

Gunnar is used to having the smaller DVD/TV in the basement to himself, however he's had to learn to share some this week.

Tonight, Dad went down after dinner to watch the debate. Shortly thereafter Gunnar runs upstairs, all righteous indignation,

Gunnar - Dad came and stole the TV.

Me -Well honey, it is HIS TV too....remember the other one doesn't work yet?

G - Yeah, but he's not even watching anything good.

Me - What's he watching?

G - Two has brown skin, and the other has blonde skin.

Me - Really? That sounds like the debate, that's pretty important.

Me -What do you mean he has BLONDE skin?

G - You know, like mine.

You never know what's going on in their little heads sometimes!!


  1. That's too funny!

    Man, I only lasted through about 45minutes of that debate and then I was D.O.N.E. So over this election.

    19, 18, 17, 16....

  2. That is to cute! Only out of the mouth of a babe!

  3. It's SO hard to share the TV! Especially when politics is boring to little people.

    Our kids, especially #2, keep saying that "if Obama is elected, he's going to raise taxes." They don't want Dad to pay more taxes, so they don't want him to win. That's the crux of the message they picked up from all the banter.

    I am with Kasey -- I think that's the 15th time I have heard everything they said last evening. Verbatim. Where are the inspiring candidates? Don't we all need to rally around someone right now instead of wishing they'd all go away?

  4. LOL. I think we're all feeling the same way. Chris' comments last night affter the debate were, "Can't we just start over with 2 new candidates??" I agree, do-over?

  5. Oh, and they're BOTH planning to raise taxes. SO either way, we're screwed.

  6. Yeah, that's inevitable now. But that's what the kids latched on to.
