The boy called Iron

Last time I fell off my horse,husband said we should look into a good life insurance for me. Not just any, but a 30 year term life insurance.

Life insurance is very important and for anyone who needs a physical exam in order to qualify for it 30 year plan is an ideal solution. Particularly if you have mortgage and want to secure an income once you pass away for the ones left behind. Mozdex is your one stop resource for an easy online quotes to find the best solution for you. It takes less time then brewing a cup of tea to fill out a form online and receive comparison quotes from leading insurance companies. And if like me you are young, the premiums are low and set for the duration of the 30 year plan.

But seeing how I am younger then my husband I can only assume he thinks I am going to die before him. Other then riding a warmblood there are many reasons why one would think I will not live to be hundred. I call a scone from drive through coffee shop lunch. The last time I went to the gym we still wrote 1999 on checks. Well we still wrote checks period! I sleep less hours a night then expected wait at the queue in DMV and I am convinced that cocoa is fruit and therefor chocolate is one of my five a day. At 2AM. Let’s be honest cocoa does grow on trees and has seeds right?

But the main reason I am possibly going to have a heart attack soon is my son. He never stops talking. EVER. Most of the time I listen. Or at least I try. His stories are very elaborate and long. We pull out of the garage and he will say: mommy, did you know? 35 minutes later he is still deep into his monologue as we arrive at our destination. Sometimes, not on purpose, I tune him out. I find myself thinking about what needs to be done and traffic and the prices of fuel and Presidential candidates and cupcakes. Then I randomly hear:

“…we would be doing it in the hotel and concert and I would unchain them after.”

I learned after that never to miss any of the details of his stories of course. Because I am sure that would have made sense otherwise. So yesterday as we are driving to Deception pass park Little J says:

” Mommy I think it is a big mistake you only have me. When I am a grown up I will have many babies. They will come from my church. All the women will be inside the church and they will bring me babies. I think I will call all my boys Iron.”

This as you can see will be the end of me. My son will probably move to Utah and support all his Iron Men with my life insurance.
I better sign up, there will be a lot of mouths to feed.

    Haha…the very things that drive us crazy about our kids, are probably what will propel them into successful lives. Imagination is a wonderful thing :)

    Oh, to have a grandchild named Iron…a boy or a girl…but maybe a boy because then you can call him Iron Man…those are some big britches to fill, but if your given name is Iron I have no doubt they will be. Hil-fudgin’-arious!

    I have a feeling he might either a) write a blog someday or b) write a book. He’s a born storyteller!

    Out of your entire post, all I registered was Little J’s quote because I read it four times, twice outloud. Between him and his babies and Reese (Bridget/Twinisms) solution to getting a girlfriend, I am reminded why sons rule.

    My step-daughters are 6 & 8. They talk NONSTOP so I feel your pain. And not only that, if they are not talking, they make noise. Humming, singing, squealing, or barking. It’s mind boggling. Lol!

    He sure seems to have a fabulous imagination. Future author?

    That’s one advantage of having more than one little critter–they can talk each other’s ears off! Your boy sounds like a character!

    I hope you’re starting to knit socks of all the mini Irons! 😉 It’s just hilarious what little kids tell us! But yes for the life insurance. I have one, too – even though we agreed that no one gets to die first 😉
