So Gavin pipes up in the van that his teacher," let them do something cool"...
"What did she let you guys do?" I asked.
"We got to mark our own math test!" He exclaimed.
"Really? That's great."I responded.
"And the great thing is mom....I really,REALLY, really wanted to cheat, but I decided that wasn't the best thing to do! Isn't that cool?" he smiled.
"It sure is" I answered laughing.
So I'm proud to say my boy has a conscience!!
Later on, on the way back from hockey we had the following conversation.
"Gavin, what do you want Santa to bring you this year? I asked.
"Umm...not sure....I have a few things on the list, I'm trying to narrow it down."he replied.
"Well...what's the top things on your list?" I asked.
"Hmm.....a cellphone." he responded nonchalantly.
"A cellphone. Umm...Santa is not going to bring a seven year old a cell phone!" I stammered. (long gone are the days of trucks and games)
"Why not?" he asked.
"Well it's just not the type of thing Santa or mommy would like you to have!" I answered.
"Besides mom, sooner or later the big guy is gonna have to start keeping up with the times!" he smiled.
"And where did you hear such a phrase as that?I asked trying not to laugh.
"I heard it on family channel!" he smirked.
And just for the record Santa will not be bringing this seven year old a cellphone.
Hope everyone is warm and happy tonight!
