11-year-old boy on life

Photobucket

Today, Charlie turned 11. As his mother, I thought it would be good to know what he thinks about a variety of topics. His answers, unedited, are below:

Girls: Nice and sweet and stuff.

Money: Use it only for good reasons, like to buy video games.

Basketball:
You should pass a lot so other people will pass to you.

Football:
You have to make the right plays to make it to the right place.

Favorite color:
Butler blue.

Favorite food:
Lasagna and pizza.

Favorite day of the week:
Wednesday, because it's gym day in school.

Favorite book:
I'm not a big fan of books.

Favorite movie:
Iron Man 2 (Note from the mom: I sure hope that's age appropriate. If not, blame the dad.)

Least hated chore:
Unloading the dishwasher, because it's fast.

Most hated chore:
Everything else.

United States:
We are awesome.

President Obama:
He is awesome and I want to invite him to my birthday party. (For the record, he invited Dubya to his birthday party a few years ago.)

God:
I love Him and He gave us all this (motioning to the space around him).

The oil spill in the Gulf:
Sad, sad, sad.

School:
Boring and stupid, except for the fun parts.

If you had a whole day to do whatever you wanted, what would you do:
Play video games, play sports and boss Robbie around...no...I would have Robbie help me boss Annie around.

If you were in charge of making dinner, what would you make:
I would order pizza.

If you had to give up one thing for the rest of your life, except school or chores, what would it be:
SKIP! I'm not giving up anything.

If you were going to write a book, what would it be about:
ME! and video games.

What do you want to be when you grow up:
A sports player, then maybe an announcer when I retire.

If you could change your life in anyway, what would you do:
Get a girlfriend.

That's where the line of questioning stopped because a.) I had to catch my breath after that last answer and b.) I had to launch my "you're too young for a girlfriend and you should just be yourself and be friends with girls" speech.

This one, yeah, he's gonna keep life interesting.

Beth,

Annie can handle Charlie and Robbie with one arm tied behind her back - no prob.

Boring and stupid except for the fun parts...that's life in a nutshell.

The secret is always finding the fun.
