Apparently, Q just told his Daddy that when he gets bigger, he wants to smoke like Grandma.

Now, coming from a 3.5 year old boy that also thinks he wants to be a soldier, a cop AND Santa Claus well....let's just say I'm less than concerned about this, at this particular moment.

Examples of the randomness from Q lately:

1) DN and I are getting married, with flowers and everything.

2) The Other Woman is very pretty, and is DN'sBestFriend'sName's GF. She visits sometimes.

3) Skateboards are presents for birthdays. They are on the list for groceries.

4) Cookies aren't snacks. They are cookies.

5) Boys can paint their toenails like Mommies do, but only if they use blue. Or Orange, on their birthdays.

As you can see, not much in the way of "panic inducing", and I can only assume the smoking thing is in direct relation to the fact that I am the only one living here that does not. BIL doesn't, but he is rarely around, Little Sis does. When we are all outside playing, the Nicotine Heads are puffing away. Not much I can do about that.

I am sure that, at some point this last weekend, Quinten said "I want to smoke" and Grandma said "Only adults can smoke", which his brain translated into "when I get bigger, I want to smoke." Tomorrow, he will do the same thing with another object or bad habit. It's just....something....his brain does to process things.

I certainly don't think I can have a serious discussion on why smoking isn't a good idea, even though the rest of this relatives (INCLUDING DN'S) do, not at his age. Maybe at 5, when I start with the condom talks?

So anyway, DN tells me that I should "talk to my mother" and tell her to.....what, I'm not precisely sure. <sigh>

thought red was for birthdays
