All I want for Christmas are some STD's

I hope the title of this post shocked you into reading it because I was shocked in a humorous way by the story I'm about to tell. My Sister-in-Law called me yesterday to let me know what my little boy had said on Wednesday night in Children's Church. What transpired was too funny to keep to myself so I had to write a post about it.

She started telling me about how her husband Steve was looking after a few of the boys in the Under-5 class. When they had finished the lesson and their craft, it was time to play. Steve was playing with my boy Will and another little boy named Landon. He proceeded to ask Landon what he wanted for Christmas and Landon quickly replied, "I'm getting an X-Box 360!". Steve then turned to Will and asked him what he wanted for Christmas, and Will responded with:

"I want STD's for Christmas!"

A bit shocked at his reply, Steve asked him what he had said. Once again, Will told him how he really wanted some STD's for Christmas. By this time, Steve was laughing so he told Will that he really needed to talk to his Daddy about that one.

Will then proceeded to tell Steve, "Why Steve? My Daddy plays with them all the time!"


I'll end the story right there and explain...

Over the past year, I've watched my little boy grow up. In fact, he's gone from playing with The Little People to imitating Power Rangers. Just the other day, I received a sneak attack wheel kick to the shin that would have made Bruce Lee proud. Actually, he and I play Power Rangers and we act out the high karate kicking, power-packed action that only a true ninja warrior can perform.
I have a history with martial arts, but since I was already out of college when the Power Rangers came on the children's entertainment scene, I knew little about them. Actually, my only experience with them was the time at Disney World when I walked around a corner and into the middle of a group of them that had jumped out of their car and started doing karate kicks all around me. Unbeknownst to me, I had accidentally injected myself into the middle of their show and all I could think about was that I may have to fight my way through them to get to my family. If you can, picture the back lot at MGM, six power rangers, one mean looking villain, and an overweight thirty-something carrying a cup of coffee. But that's another story for another time.

So, I did some research and what I've found out is that there are many variations of the Power Rangers that have been produced over the past decade. These include Power Rangers Time Force, Wild Force, Ninja Storm, Dino Thunder, Mystic Force, and mine and Will's personal favorite Space Patrol Delta, or SPD for short.


What my little Will was telling his Uncle Steve was that he wanted some Power Rangers Space Patrol Delta (SPD) toys for Christmas. I don't know if he mixed up "T" with "P", or if Steve only heard a "T" from his three year old lips. At any rate, it still makes for a funny story from the mouths of babes...

Oh, my GOODNESS! They really say the craziest things, don't they?! I can just picture you guys sparring in the yard. hee hee

One weekend at church, during the fellowship meal, I was sitting at the "girls" table and Jay was sitting with the "guys" at another table in the fellowship hall. The ladies had just brought out desert when my 4 year old son, Jed walked up to Jay, dropped a handful of M&M's on the table in front of him and said in his loud toddler voice, "Here Daddy, here's your VIAGRAS!" My husband just about DIED!! Of course, the other men at the table (including the Pastor) weren't sure whether to laugh or cry. Total silence for a second, then everyone was just dying with laughter. Poor guy...

We still have NOOOOO idea where Jed got that from? TV maybe??
He did some other really embarassing things, too awful to mention here. ;o)
