The unfortunate fate of my future grandchildren

A few nights ago at dinner, Max didn't want to eat any of the food I had fixed. One of the kids told him that he needed to eat vegetables so he could grow, but Max still didn't want any.

"Max, if you don't eat healthy food, you won't grow any bigger, you want to get taller, don't you?"

Max rolled his eyes and said "Yes, I want to grow bigger so I can be a dad!"

I asked him how many kids he wanted to have and he said he wanted to have 5 kids.

"What are you going to name them?" Brielle asked, and Max replied "I'm going to name one of them Human."

"Human???" we all questioned in unison.

"Yes" Max said, "Human Chen. I'm going to name one of my kids Human Chen."

That is funny! We had the same conversation the other day with my 5 yr old son. He said he was going to have 10, 5 girls, and 5 boys. My grandchildren will be named, girls: Cherry, Girlfriend, Rock Down, Fish, and Microphone... makes you wonder what he thinks about girls huh? The boys however will be stuck with, Ironman, Darth Mall, BumbleBee, Sam, and MoHawk. I think I must start making some biker baby quilts, maybe with a little black and flames??? What do you think?

Where does he come up with these things? Have you ever asked him that?

My kids are in this big "alien" phase thing. maybe, by the time he gets married, we'll have interplanetary relationships. So "HUMAN" won't be so far off!

Is your last name Chen? That Max is a corker! My daughter came home from 1st grade talking about a boy named Josh. I asked what his last name was and she said it was Ua. (Get it--Joshua?) I still chuckle. I thought it was hilarious...

I'd blame that one phone commercial that talks about having a friend named Human.
