Not our Father

Griffin is outgoing, social, compassionate, funny, and a cutie. Although we discourage it, he says he has 3 girlfriends. We believe him. He doesn't know it yet, but he has a date for prom, my friend has her heart set her daughter and my son going together. I must admit, they would be a cute couple.

Imagine my surprise when he announced his latest choice of profession.

Griffin: Mom, I want to be the world's youngest priest.

Me: First of all, we aren't catholic. And secondly, priests can't go on dates, have girlfriends, or get married.

Long pause.....

Griffin: I changed my mind.

I told Ben, I don't know why he said he wants to be a priest. He doesn't even know what one is. Ben said, he wants to have communion all the time....I bet that is it. He loves the first Sunday of the month!

That is awesome. I wish my girls wanted to be nuns. A mom can dream. Happy POW!

It would probably save you plenty of sleepless nights in his older years. Maybe you should try reconvince him.

Oh good grief that's the funniest thing I've heard in ages. Although I do kinda have to agree with Carol. At least you'd always know where he was. *lol*
