What he says when he is seven...

Mommy: "So, how was everyones day?"

"Good"(they reply in unison.)

Ben: "Except for that I almost cried in music class."

Mommy: "Oh really...why?"(said with some concern.)

Ben: "Have you ever heard the song "Puff the Magic Dragon"?"

Mommy: "Oh....yes, I've heard that song...kinda sad, right?"

Ben: "I was on the verge of tears."

Mommy: "What was it about the song that made you feel sad?"

Ben: "When the little boy grows up and never sees the dragon again."

Mommy: "Yes...that part is sad."

Abby Sue: "Well Ben, than you will cry your eyes out when you read "Where the Red Fern Grows."

Ben: "I don't think I will."

Abby Sue: "Yes you will. The dogs get attacked and die."

Ben: "That is not as sad as never seeing your dragon again."


  1. obviously losing a dragon trumps losing a dog Abby Sue, sheesh! :) Love it!

  2. He is all boy, yet with a sprinkle of tender heart. Dog dies, hey thats life, but NOT seeing your dragon that will pull at your heart. He is the perfect package for a very special young woman one day!!!

  3. That is soooooo my Benji, Oh sorry Ben:-) Give him a big hug for me cuz I used to cry at the song too!!!

  4. LOL!!! side note MG hid under his kitchen table for hours crying after finishing where the red fern grows... and he doesn't even like pets.
