funny things my kids say

I think it is time for another instalment of the funny things out of the mouths of my kids!

*****************************

Kids:   Mom, can we invite some kids over for play dates?
Me:     No, I don't feel like watching a bunch of kids today.
Kids:   But Mom!  You don't have to watch us!  You can just look at your iPad and we'll get you if somebody bleeds!

*****************************


The Middle Child and I were discussing the kids' favorite Christmas traditions as I was tucking her in at bedtime.  Cutting down a tree, getting new Christmas pyjamas, etc.  Then she adds to the list, "fighting with each other!"   Hmmmm....I suppose that happens, too!

*****************************


Last But Not Least comes into my bed for a snuggle in the wee morning hours and starts to chatter:

'Mommy!  I love your big boobies, they are so fluffy I wanna DIE!  It's like they are stuffed with feathers!  Did you know boobies have no bones?  When am I going to get boobies?  By the way, did you know my bare butt smells like butter?"

And so the morning began......

*****************************

Last But Not Least, who is five going on fifteen, has been talking about "marrying" a boy five years her senior for several years.  He is the big brother of one of Big G's school friends, and the sweetest kid.  Anyways, she recently proclaimed the at the "engagement" is off.  When asked why,  here was her response:

"Well, Mom, he is like in grade FIVE, and I am only in Kindergarten.  By the time I am ready to get married, he will probably already be a grandpa.  So, it's better if I marry someone from my own grade."

****************************


Tucking Big G into bed one night, distracted and eager to be off to my "to do" list while he of course tried to prolong the process as long as possible.

Me:       "Big G, go to bed already, I have a hundred things to do!"
Big G:   "I have a hundred things to do, too, Mom, and all one hundred are to hug you."

And then we shared a long, 100+ second hug :)

Omg, 100 hugs! Big G is trouble!

Your kids are awesome. And isn't 99% of motherhood looking at the ipad until someone bleeds?

Sarah said...

Hahaha! Kids are a crack up. The 100hugs warms my heart. The first anecdote reminds me of a time when my son who'd just turned three yelled at me: "mum, hurry up and get off placebook and come help me!"
