The Fate of "Roger" the Ant


A conversation between my children...

Son 1: Look it's an ant! (In the boys bedroom...wonderful!)

Daughter: We need to kill him, we can't have an ant in here. (smart daughter)

Son 1: But that's Roger, we can't kill him (Oh he has a name!)

Son 2: Well I just killed him. (Poor Roger)

Son 1: NO! (Poor Son!)

Daughter: Oh wait he's moving... (twitching?)

Son 2: He may have made it. I think he is still alive. (The doctor speaks!)

Son 1: No he's dead and still moving. (Because a 4 year old knows this is possible!)

Son 2: Maybe we should feed him. (NOOOOO)

Mom: NO FOOD UPSTAIRS!!!

Daughter: Maybe we should just kill him then. (Wow, she's really pushing his death...should I be worried???)

Children sneak food upstairs regardless. Mom can't bear to stop the scene in the other room.

Son 2: Look, he likes the cracker (Roger must have told them that...)

Daughter: He's not eating it, maybe we should kill him. (Starting to question my daughters morals at this point...)

Son 1: No, he's eating it (apparently if you look hard enough you can see an ant eating)
Son 2: Maybe not (lol)

Son 1: THAT'S NOT ROGER (OMG!!! This is a tragedy! Although I'm not sure how he can tell the difference between one ant or another...Roger must have had a red stripe???)

Daughter: Maybe we should kill him then. We can't have ants in the house. He'll call his ant friends and then they'll all come live in your bedroom. (Does Roger have a cell phone???)

Son 2: Maybe we should build him a house. (as they break out the Lincoln Logs)

Son 1: Maybe we could step on him (questioning my sons morals now!)

Daughter: Yeah he WAS Roger, but I think we should kill him. (He WAS Roger??? And now he isn't????)

Son 1: I'll just name my Jelly Bean Roger instead!!! (And the problem has been solved! Poor Roger)

Write down all the funny things they say, the things they say won't always make you smile ;)

Awww, that is SO cute! My kids go bonkers every time they see an ant. They know to kill it though, 'cause the kind we have are these huge bull ants that bite. Yikes.
Your daughter is a determined little girl, huh?

Don't you just love the creative minds of our kids! Sometimes if I remember, I try to write those funny things down! Someday at their rehearsal dinners, I'm going to embarass them with the most outrageous things they ever said!

I remember my wife Kat from Heart 2 Heart talking to me about this blog on Roger the Ant! It was and still is hilarious! I even wrote something on Ants as well called Ant Training Class.

Anyway, you have a great Blogpage and the layout is superb! (Secretly saying so no one else can read, Mary Poppins, My favorite all time Movie!)

Take Care,

Steve

Isn't it great that an ant can entertain children for hours...or at least several minutes if they don't build a house for it?
I love your award-winning post! Little Roger had me rooting for him & the kids had me laughing. Too cute!
