The Chronicles of Biscuit - Our Day at Oklahoma City

The Chronicles of Biscuit:  Stories about our youngest son, Tyler, whose nickname is Biscuit.

This week has been filled with lots of tears in Tipton, so I thought I would share a few funny things Biscuit has said recently.  Laughing is good for us.  Maybe you need it, too! :)

Last Friday Biscuit had an eye doctor appointment in Oklahoma City.  He was looking forward to us spending the whole day together and looking forward to having a day off of school.

When we were about 15 miles away from home, I said, "Oh, I forgot to print off the Hobby Lobby coupon."  Biscuit replied, "I don't have a problem with that!".

I laughed and laughed!  Biscuit didn't have a problem with me forgetting the coupon because he didn't want to go to Hobby Lobby.  He doesn't enjoy going there at all. (I think he gets that "No Hobby Lobby" attitude from his daddy :).

However, Biscuit did have a plan to go to a mall, but he didn't want to shop.  He wanted to go to the food court, sit in an "old, rusty car", and eat Chinese food!  The Quail Springs Mall has several old classic cars that are booths.  We were excited to actually find the pink cadillac booth empty - just in time to eat that yummy Chinese food.

Later on in the day Biscuit asked me if I could get him a rotten, old motorcycle when he's sixteen.  He said he and his brother, Jacob, could fix it up. 

On the way home from Oklahoma City, Biscuit wrote in a spiral notebook.....for the whole two hours and fifteen minutes.  He made his football schedule out the whole way - filling out every little detail about the game, times, teams, and all sorts of other "important" information.  It's amazing that he can stay so focused on something like that, but can't stay focused for five minutes when he's supposed to be straightening up his room!

Thanks for the laughs, Biscuit!
