it just can’t be done

>> Monday, March 1, 2010



Today is first time that I am forced to recognize that my 7 year old son is part of the male race.  My son is a smart boy, however often the Male part of boys will override the brain. I’m in shock and denial over the following conversation.



Jonah: “hey mom! Do you know what is impossible to do?”


Me: “get you to brush your teeth with out asking twelve million times?”


Jonah: “Duh, I CAN brush my teeth! But do you know what is IMPOSSIBLE to do?”


Me: “Do I get a prize if I guess right, and can that prize be… you-brushing-your-teeth?”


Jonah: “Would you just guess already!”

{Clearly he has his dad’s humor genie, because at this point he is completely annoyed with my foolishness}
Me: “No Jonah, I don’t know what is impossible for you to do. Please, oh please please, tell me…so you can go brush you teeth.”


Jonah: “It is Impossible for me to touch my head to my pee pee.”


I don’t even know what to say to this, why would anybody want to spend anytime at all attempting this?
Ok... I am so not going there…this is my sweet baby boy, my middle son.
I couldn’t even bring myself to ask, why he knew this was impossible, and why he would want to do it at all. Although I couldn’t help but wonder why he couldn’t, he can get his leg over his head after all.

I’m guessing every little boy has tried this feat at sometime in their life. (however my husband completly denies it)

Me: "Jonah go brush your teeth, and never touch that thing again! stop trying to do what-ever it is you are trying to do."


Jonah: "You mean touching my head with my pee pee? I told you its IMPOSSIBLE, it just can’t be done."


Me: "Praise Jesus!"

Boys are beyond the range of anyone's sure understanding, at least when they are between the ages of 18 months and 90 years. ~James Thurber

Funny! I can't tell you the number of times I'll walk away from my son, muttering, "Only a boy would..." or "He's such a boy...". Sigh... I'll do my best to make him a good boy so that his wife doesn't hate me forever...
