"Mama," my eight-year-old son said. "I'm going to go fly a kite."
"I thought your kite fell apart last year and ended up getting tossed," I replied.
"It did. I'm going to make a new one."
Okay. I knew this was going to be interesting.
It was indeed interesting. I went out to the garage about fifteen minutes later and discovered my son playing with his fishing rod. At the end of the line was a paper dangled from the hook.
"Do you like my new kite?"
I looked at that thing. "Does it fly?"
We went out into the wind. The paper blew into the air and whipped around, just like a kite.
One thing that bubba definitely has, is logic! Plus he is very innovative. Great combination.ReplyDelete
He's a brilliant boy!Delete
My hubs flew kites as a little boy and still loves them.
I still love flying kites, too!Delete
I want to watch Mary Poppins now!ReplyDelete
Haha! Me too!Delete
I miss having a little boy who likes to invent things. Mine is grown. He is a computer science major and writes software. I guess that is inventing.ReplyDelete
Yes it is. Just a different kind of inventing.Delete
That's awesome. Little boys are great. My grandson is two and he loves flying kites. :)ReplyDelete
Two is such a sweet age! And yes, little boys are great!Delete
It's great that he can make himself happy without begging you to spend money. And now the song from Mary Poppins is running through my mind.ReplyDelete
Haha! Sorry for planting that little ear worm.Delete
Good for him! He is inventive for sure.ReplyDelete
It truly is amazing the things he comes up with!Delete
Damn song is in my head too haha kites can be fun, sounds like he made a great one.ReplyDelete
Sorry. It's a payback for all the songs you stuck in my head!Delete
That's awesome. We had fancy, expensive kites at the beach this summer and couldn't get one up in the air.ReplyDelete
