I Don't Want to Live on that Planet

I was in the car with Bones and Mr. T when the frickin' ODDEST conversation came up. I swear it went exactly like this:

Bones: Mom, if you date a guy and he is mean to us, would you stand up for us or would you not believe he was being mean to us behind your back?

Me: *blink*

Bones and Mr. T:

Me: I'm lost.

Bones: IF you date a guy and he is MEAN to us, would you stand up for us or would you not believe he was being mean to us behind your back?

Me: *long pause* Bones. I'm married to your Dad. I'm not going to date again.

Mr. T: Yeah, but IF...

Me: There isn't an if. You don't date if you're married and your Dad and I are married...

Bones: No, we get that, but like if you and Dad got divorced and you started to date again.

Me: We're not getting divorced. Everything is FINE. Really.

Mr. T: You're not answering.

Bones: yeah, we know everything is fine and you're not getting divorced, but if something happened and you had to date, what then?

Me: Of course I'd stand up for you and believe you. Of course. You are mine. I love you. You come first.

Bones and Mr. T: Good.


So WTF was that about? Did they watch something that I don't know about? Holy crap...

(And no... we are having ZERO marital problems. We don't argue. There is no tension. We laugh alot... Good grief.)

Sounds like a friend of theirs might be talking about this and of course Bones then had to ask. heh.

I came to the same conclusion that Teresa did. A friend of theirs may be dealing with such an issue. That's why I always ask my kids where they got their ideas from, or if a friend told them something. Besides you never know, you may pass some sage advice to your kids that they may pass to their friends.

I recall seeing a movie when I was about eight. It had a divorce situation occurring. The child was placed on the stand. The judge asked her which parent she preferred to live with. When I got home I instructed my baby sister if ever we have to be on the witness stand tell the judge you don't want to live with either parent. Our folks will feel bad and they won't get divorced. As you know my folks had a fabulous relationship. :)

There is a new movie out where a mom dates what seems like the perfect man but instead tried to kill the kids....I forgot what it is called.

Rave - It's called "Any Movie on Lifetime, WE, or Oxygen" :-)

Being with Bones in a vehicle is like being in a Pachinko machine. He bounces all over, light sound motion, constant, all over the road. As soon as the conversation ended, I had every intention of asking from where the questions came, but then "BING!" he was gone. He was on some other tangent and I got pulled in with him. It's like some crazy ride being with his mind... funny as all get out at times.
