One morning I left the girls at the table finishing their breakfast while I got ready in the next room. I was listening to their conversation as they discussed being the queens of different animals. One would say, “I’m the queen of the monkeys, and you’re the queen of the tigers,” and so on. I was enjoying their banter and decided to get in on it. Putting my brush down, I walked into the room and asked, “So what is Mom the queen of?” With out missing a beat, my oldest who was only six at the time called out, “You’re the queen of all donkeys!”
Your kids are the funniest ever.
LOL! Donkeys!!! That’s to funny!
Oh, I do love your stories. It sounds like your kids think quite highly of you!
Your kiddos crack me up! At least you are still a queen though, right?
today’s quote was great! “Queen of all donkeys” I laughed! Esther you are a great mom!

I love this! So cute! I like how kids minds and imaginations roam far and wide…it is a delight to wonder and to try and figure out where they connect the dots in their minds! Fascinating!
Haha! Too cute!

I love kid’s humor. My BBC has produced so many laughs for us. This is a neat way to capture the memories. I know I have forgotten a lot of the best funny stories already. Have a blessed weekend!
Well. Donkeys can be kind of cute…
awesome. simply awesome.
Kids do say the darndest things…LOL
Coulda’ been worse. Way worse. 😉
I think they meant it as a compliment!
Does that make them donkeys? Cuz we know Mama is the queen of the family.
Children say the most innocent things.
Thanks for making me smile & laugh with your posts.
I have given you a bloggy award on my website. =)
Ah! Kids are so funny!
I’m sure she meant this to be the best of compliments. 😉

I don’t think I am brave enough to ask my kids that question. 😉 They couldn’t have picked something cute like kitty cats or lovebirds???! No, it had to be donkeys. I love kids and their humor, even when they don’t mean to be funny. 🙂
Thank you so much for joining my party. Hope you’ll stop by Serenity Now again soon! 🙂

I once heard a story about a well seasoned Pastor who had received a nasty letter from an angry woman. She closed the letter with, “you’re nothing but a donkey!” He stewed on this thought for several days and couldn’t shake being upset. Later that week, he met up with a good friend for lunch and said nothing about the rude letter. Yet, his friend said a upon leaving, “Hey, you know what they say about the donkey right? Even he knew the parade was for the man riding on his back and not for himself”!
I like your funny story and would consider it a privilege to be queen of the humble donkeys 🙂
Love this! Thanks so much for stopping by Sarah!
