Tonight the boys and I went to Chick-Fil-A for their mother/son date “knight.”  My boys were in medieval boy heaven!  The back corner of our C-F-A was decorated like a castle, we were served at our table, they were allowed to have a milkshake, AND we had a tour of the kitchen and a limo ride afterwards!  Talk about exciting!  The boys will probably remember those things, and that’s okay–I will too!  But what I never want to forget are their answers to the questions that C-F-A had left on the table for conversation starters.  Here are the questions and answers:

  1. What does a boy have to do to become a knight?   Jack- “Fight some dragons!”
  2. Do you remember a time when you had to be brave?  Daniel- “At the fair with the hand dryer”  (By way of explanation, Daniel is just overcoming a strong fear of bathroom hand dryers and had a major feat of bravery at the fair last week.)
  3. If you had to hide something in a safe place, where would it be?  Daniel- “In the closet!”  Jack – echoed Daniel
  4. Who is the bravest person you know?  Daniel- “Owen!”  (Another word of explanation- we saw the Powells as they were on their way out, and Tess shared that Owen had named himself as the bravest person he knew.  I guess that was good enough for Daniel!)  Jack- “Me!”
  5. What kinds of things can you protect me against?  Jack- “Dragons!”  Daniel- “and bad guys!”
  6. Would you rather have super strength or the ability to fly?  Both boys chose flying.
  7. Would you rather be a spider for a week or an elephant for a year?  Daniel chose elephant, and Jack chose spider.
  8. Would you rather give up candy or ice cream forever?  Daniel said candy, and Jack said ice cream.
  9. Would you rather live on the moon or underwater in the ocean?  Both boys said on the moon.
  10. Would you rather wear a clown nose or clown shoes to __________?  (the paper said school/work but I said church)  Daniel- “Nothing clown!”  Jack- shoes
