Bringing Up Boys

I know, I know. I'm totally stealing the title from Dr. Dobson. But, since we've been watching the videos in our Thursday night small group, it's been on my mind a lot.

Today the boys had some friends over, and I heard one of the things most moms would NOT want to hear from her 12 year old son:

"Mom, can I use the video camera?"

"Ummm... why?"

"So I can film destruction."

(Honest answer. I guess that IS what we teach in our household.)

I saw his lips continue to move, but only after my heart found it's regular rhythm could I hear that he was explaining to me why. The great lego army he had built over the last year and had been storing on top of the air hockey table (Because those aren't actually for playing air hockey, their for storing things.) was meeting an untimely end and he wanted to film it.

Makes perfect sense. Filming destruction.

So... did you let them?

Yes. =^) If I had more time and were more technically adept, I'd upload the video.

Sometimes I read your blog and then thank God that the majority in my house fell on the chick side.

Yes, of course! Makes perfect sense to me!
