A conversation with Ethan

Image hosting by Photobucket

My husband is a fan of the reality television show Miami Ink. I've never seen the show, but I believe it is basically a "life in a tattoo studio" show. Whatever my husband like, Ethan loves. If Adam thinks the show is good, then Ethan thinks it is Emmy Award quality. Whatever. Right?

Last night they were watching an episode, and the scened centered on a woman that was getting a tattoo. The following conversation traspired:

Ethan: Daddy, you want to get a new wife like that?

Adam: You can't just trade-in a wife. Once you're married to someone you have to stick wtih them.

Ethan: Do you think Momma would be mad at you if you got a new wife that looked like that?

Adam: She would be REAL mad.


Now, I don't know where this conversation came from, but here's my guess. My husband has several tattoos. I have none. I don't want any. Whenever we ride by a tattoo studio Adam always asks, "You want a tattoo? I'll pay for it. C'mon. Right now. Let's go."

I guess Ethan really listens to eveyrthing we say.

It cracks me up how kids qualify relationships, totally not getting that new wife might just equal new mom with lots of tattoos!!!

That kid is a comic genius, seriously.

Yes, I have learned they listen to everything the hard way.

Come on, go ahead and get the tatt. I am with ya, don't have one, don't want one...could not handle the pain.

You should get a tattoo of your husband's name. Nothing says love like a lifetime of regret.

LOL!! That's too much.

I have one very small tattoo... and my husband has a couple.

In re: to the above comment, a name tattoo isn't a lifetime of regret - well, not for some. My husband has my name on his arm band - it's tribal writing and most can't even pinpoint it says my name... they just it's just a tribal pattern. He totally surprised me with the tattoo and I'm still not sure what prompted him to do it but it's my fave tat on him.

Out of the mouths of babes they say. I have decided that my kids only pay attention to what I'm saying when I don't want them too...

You'll say something and then three weeks later, out of the blue, a small child will ask you about it. My brother did it to my mom ALL THE TIME. I'm sure my nephew's not long off from doing the same! :D So cute.

maybe you could get one of those lick and stick ones for special occasions.
i'm with you, i'd never get one.

Down here in Texas there are places that will give a woman a free tattoo if she comes in with her husband or boyfriend who gets one for himself.
