conversations with benson

Benson is seriously full of insight these days and I really need to start keeping track of his little pearls of wisdom. We start with conversations we had today:

Ben- "Where do you want to go on a mission when you get bigger?"
Benson- (after a few seconds of serious pondering) "Home Depot."


This one was at dinner:
Ben- (to Banks, and pointing at the appropriate person) "Daddy, Mama, Benson."
Benson- "I ARE NOT BENSON I ARE BONECRUSHER (pronounced Bone Frusher).
Ben- "I wish you would choose a nice Transformer. Don't you want to be Optimus Prime?"
Benson- "I ARE NOT A NICE ONE. I ARE THE THE MEANEST FRANSMOWER IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!"

Isn't it funny how I skip around in one short paragraph? I'll do better at not confusing everyone...maybe.

hellloooo, why is no one else worried about benson's evil desires? just because it's funny doesn't mean it isn't serious.

I had a hardy chuckle from that. I hope you keep these sayings somewhere. It might be good to bring to mind if he gets called somewhere that is not too appealing to him. So cute, so perfectly Benson. Love him.

I think my favorite is the last saying. He is so funny. I still have a picture of him and Spencer hanging out around here. What a stud.
