I used to write much more often about the latest funny things the kids have said. Lately I find myself much more often posting them on Facebook , so if you follow my Facebook page, then some of these will probably be familiar to you.
Me: Does the baby have a stinky diaper?
My husband: Yes.
5 year old: Oh, I thought it was the food.
Big brother has little brother trained. Big Brother says, “I won.” Little brother says, “I lost!” Wonder how long that will last!
“Mommy I made a little thing for you…with some of the trash I found in my room…”
“I need to eat the chocolate or my mom will steal it,” I heard my daughter say to the friend at church who had given her a goodie bag. I was aghast! For the record I do not steal my kids’ chocolate. (Loot from candy collecting day in October doesn’t count.) I will on the other hand purchase chocolate, hide it, and not share. That I confess to.
My daughter: Mom, which word needs a helping word, began or begun? Me: Usually the one that ends in “N” needs the helping word. My daughter: Uh…
“Aw no. We don’t need boogers on the desk…” I told my two year old. The rest of the kids burst out laughing. Maybe not what you hear every day?
“Mom, how do you say ‘English’ in Spanish?” Totally legitimate question, but it made me laugh anyway!
In a weak moment I blubbered to my husband, “You’re my only friend and you’re not even nice to me.” To which he died laughing. Serves me right for feeling sorry for myself! Ha ha!
“Let’s have a white meal!” the kids suggested. They love themed meals. So we were thinking of what white food we could have: white bread, marshmallows… Trying to think of something healthier I said we could have milk for the drink. That didn’t sound special. We have milk all the time. “I know! We could have Root beer with white food coloring!” exclaimed my daughter.
Feeling my age: We were singing the orchestra song one morning at Classical Conversations. I whispered to the mom sitting next to me that the first time I heard that song was on the movie “You’ve Got Mail.”
“That’s a really old movie! I was just a little kid when that came out.”
“Oh. I was a high school Spanish teacher.”
And the other night during prayer time my two-year-old, completely on his own, with eyes closed and hands folded prayed, “Jesus love me. Bible tell me. Amen.”
