My Son Loves Minecraft More than Me & Other Truths

My Son Loves Minecraft More than Me & Other Truths

Being a parent is one of the most frustrating and rewarding jobs in the world. I am constantly amazed at this small person who gets smarter and more sarcastic every single day. Being a part of molding him into the person he will become is equal parts terrifying and cool. Unfortunately, most of the time I think I am just teaching him to be just like me….which can be good or bad depending on the day.

Here are some of my favorite things he’s said and done recently that will give you a little view into our crazy world.

Last night Evan was playing Minecraft. He was showing me how he could make an entire army of snow gollums (sp?). To further show off he decided to spawn some ghasts and let the snow gollums kill them. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Minecraft, ghasts spit fire balls. All was going well until Evan starts screaming “Oh no! Oh no! Oh no! Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! My hotel is burning! My hotel is burning! Help me! Help me!” The ghasts overtook the snow gollums and burned down his hotel he built from scratch. The screaming and crying was like nothing I have ever heard. I can guarantee, he doesn’t love me as much as he loves that hotel….or Minecraft.

Yup. I am second rate to a video game. While we were discussing this he came out with another doozy.

“Mom, you and Daddy only want me here to be a servant.”

I had to catch my breath from laughing to even answer this one. You see, Evan does the bare minimum around the house. We are trying to work on it but he has a LONG way to go before he could even get a job as an unpaid servant. He would be fired FOR SURE.

Evan and his Minecraft Coat

Last year I bought Evan a coat at Wal-Mart that looks Minecraft-ish. Now he refuses to wear another coat. He wants a new one in a bigger size. I explained that Wal-Mart no longer sells that particular coat. His answer? “Go on the Amazons, mom. They sell everything at the Amazons.” So if you can’t find me, I’ll be searching for a random Minecraft-esque jacket on “The Amazons”.

The good part of all this is that I thought the cute behaviour might go away as he grew up. I missed the days he called “Ancient Egyptians” “Agent Diptions”. Thankfully, though those days are gone, even funnier craziness has taken its place.


I thought things were going to get boring. 🙂

This is a fun age too, we're enjoying it with Hannah. Though, the almost 5 year old clearly takes the comedic cake around here.

I love when they get a sense of humor. It is hysterical though they often tell the same joke ten times. Yes, I got it the first 5 times. Please stop. LOL.
