Slap that bitch off the moon

IMG_0954“Cadeisms,” its what I call the wonderful quotes and bits of advice my son shares with me. “Slap that bitch off the moon.” This came along one day while he was watching a Dreamworks Studios movie. The Dreamworks logo of a boy sitting on the moon fishing appeared and Cade got up and slapped the television. When asked why he hit the television Cade replied, “Dreamworks fisher boy.  Slap that bitch off the moon.” Cade is doing much better than the dreadful night we just experienced. I can tell he is struggling and I told him, “Today we are going to take that headache and slap that bitch off the moon.” He chuckled and immediately began talking about Aladdin. Aladdin is by far his favorite Disney movie.

Cade likes to compare people to characters from movies. For instance, Cade may say, “Mr Carlos is like Aladdin.” Being compared to Aladdin, by the way, is a pretty big deal. As I mentioned, Aladdin is his favorite. He doesn’t leave out the ladies either. To them he may say, “She is pretty like Jasmine or Cinderella.” I think most women would love to hear that. Another comparison he likes to make is with super heroes. Occasionally I may ask him what super hero Daddy is like. Admittedly, I am hoping for Superman and hearing that really makes my day. Sometime I do get the Joker or Riddler and that’s just fine because it makes me laugh.

Cade is staying home from school today to get some rest. I ran my fitness boot camp class this morning and I am back at home so that we can spend the rest of the day together. Good news for Cade, I called Mr Carlos and he is coming over to hang out with him. It’s going to be a good day. The dark clouds are breezing by and today the sun is shining and the birds are singing. Remember that when things seem to be their worst, keep your bitch slapping hand strong and slap that bitch off the moon.
