Anyone Else Sick of 2012?

Well I am! I just want to hear about 2009 right now! Sorry everyone, I just had to get this off my chest. Sure I enjoy watching the programs on such things now and then, but today it finally crossed the line. You see, I have two children, a boy age 7, a girl age 4, and two step children, a boy age 8 and a girl age 11. While they were sitting at the dinner table I overheard a discussion from my step children about the end of the world. Apparently in school, this is a hot topic. What concerns me is not that my children and step children are staying up with the news, what concerns me is if they are taking this to heart and it is interfering in their thought process about their lives. All of the kids thought this was pretty funny from what I could tell, except for my son, the one who is 7. You see, Bowen, well, he is a very sensitive young man, he is very caring and loving. He is very compassionate and always has been, almost more so than any child I have ever known before. Well, as soon as he heard this, I could see the emotions rising, and he says, "I don't want to die." Immediately I announce to everyone that I will hear no more of this subject, that this is nonsense, and that nobody, nobody knows for sure when the world is going to come to an end. Sigh... for all I know it may or may not happen, the point is "It's not what matters today and I don't want my children fearing that they are about to die within the next few years!" Ugh, ok I am done, venting finished! Don't worry I promise to hardly ever do this, just mostly happy chatter and good giveaways. ;)

P.S. I do love to watch the history channel and discovery channel and I do love watching stuff like this for the heck of it, but I am an adult and I would hope that other adults aren't telling their children to prepare for eternal doom and spread the news at school.:P Oh and yes, I will watch the movie when it comes out because I do love a good disaster movie! lol Ok I am done now!
