I am constantly amazed at the things that my kids say.
They just crack me up sometimes.

My daughter was sitting on my hubby's lap and he says "you're the apple of my eye" my daughter replies "no, I'm the apple of mommy's eye" Hubby asks "why can't you be the apple of my eye?" daughter replies as serious as can be "because you're a knucklehead"

Too funny! My grandkids are funny, too...the 5 year old defends her father (my son) constantly...he had cut down a lot of trees in the back of the house, & I worried about the wildflowers, knowing how much HayHay loves them...but no, she said "MY daddy knows just how many to cut down." Then she took some goldenrod, all dried up, & began scattering seeds in the lawn!

There's a news radio station here in NYC that DH used to listen to a lot. The station motto is "You give us 22 minutes, we'll give you the world". So, one day, my son, who was six at the time, was very angry at me and said he was going to run away. I asked what would he live on? He replied in all seriousness, "I'm going to W-I-N-S and I'm going to give them 22 minutes and they're going to GIVE ME THE WORLD!!!"

Gosh, kids notice everything, don't they? I took 3yr old Anni to the fairy cave in our library. Five year old HayHay asked me what she played with...I said, "Doll furniture" And HayHay said, "I'll bet she just lined them up in a row, & when you do that, there's not much left to do". Analyzing her sister already!

my dd and sil were talking about my broken wrist in the presence of my 3 yr old grandson. i got a late phone call one night and was told that little james insisted on talking to me. he asked "are you all broken!!!!??? can you move at all?? in a very worried tone. he was able to fall asleep easily after he had all the not so disastrous facts. of course he wanted to know why i didn't have a mommy to take care of me while i'm not feeling well. that became another story. time for the meds that will put me out of agony and into lala land.

At the party for my nephew's HS graduation, my little guy had a classic moment. Many of my SIL's family are Baptists. So at most large family gatherings a prayer is said. So everyone held hands and one of the aunts, who is a pastor, gave a nice prayer. Not a quick prayer - one that went on for a few minutes. After finishing, and everyone saying 'Amen', my little one - three at the time - said (not to quietly), 'Wow, that was a great story!'

Much laughter followed.

I know, I love how kids minds work.

I've posted this before, but it's funny so will post again.
My 2 year old niece asked her mom while she was changing her baby brother, "what does Bert have up front?" My sister told her the correct anatomical term. Later her older brother came into the room and she asked him "what do you have up front?" And before he could answer, she went on
"you have a peanuts. But you can't eat them, they're fake. It's not good."

My little guy had a great one the other day. He must have been still thinking about his First Communion. He asked me, in complete seriousness, how is it that Jesus said that whoever ate the bread never die, but then he ate it and died? :-) A classic.

In the car with the kids yesterday, and my little one says, 'Daddy, today I was REMINISCING with my friends on the bus.' I immediately cracked up and said to him - 'You're only eight years old, what can you POSSIBLY be reminiscing about?!!'

He said 'Pre-school.'

Incredible. I certainly did not know that word in second grade!

Awe, I know how he feels, there is nothing like the sanctuary of HOME!

Oryanna has been coming up with some doozies lately...
The other day out of the clear blue while playing with her dolls she says:
"My Daddy works hard, he's a good man." and keeps right on playing. I just had to hug her!
Most of you know I have a handi-capped son, I don't know if you know that he doesn't talk really. Well, his vocab. is limited to mostly names and he really doesn't say much...so when Oryanna yelled to her Mother yesterday that Uncle Justin wasn't talking to her, we about busted a gut!!

Pixie, that little girl sounds like she provides lots of entertainment!!

I spent last week babysitting for my grandson. Needless to say, I got an earful of new material. He was only allowed to stay with me for two week days and of course the weekends. The remainder of the week days he is in daycare. One day he came with a song that Josh taught him.

"I see your hiiiiiineeee.
It's bright and shiiiiiineee.
You'd better hiiide it
Before I biiiiite it!!

When I ask him to do something that he is not really fond of, he mutters under his breath "OK Miss Mezbick". When I ask him who she is, he tells me that Ethan is the one who really knows who she is because he quietly calls the teacher that when he is annoyed with her.

I responded with "OK Mr. Mezbick" and it really set him off, but he did stop calling me that.

Im just 'snooping' around and found this site. Thought I'd add one of my fav's from my first grandson. Andy (4yo) an his mother lived with me for a while. When they came to live they had a dog named Jack. Jack was not allowed in the house. I came home one day to find a broken dish. I asked my grandson how did the dish get broken. Jack did it, grandma, bad dog! I asked him how Jack got in the house and he replied, "I don't know grandma" I asked him if he was lying to me, and he responded yes. He would blame Jack the dog for anything that may have gone wrong, but when asked if he was lying, he would say yes. He would tell these amazing 'stories' and then when asked would admit he was lying. Never came right out and admitted he did it, had to blame poor old Jack first. Jack was one amazing dog, could open the refrigerator door, the cookie jar, the door to let himself into the house, knocked stuff off tables, and scattered stuff everywhere,he was just an amazing dog! I'm Lying.

My DGD who is 3 was asked yesterday if she thought her aunt was going to have a girl or a boy since they had gone to the hospital to have their baby. Her reply - that it would be a girl and they would name her Dancestar. Found out this morning that it turned out to be a boy and his name is Chicago Athanasius Dawson Mallasch. I think I like Dancestar better.

Several years ago I was visiting a friend who has 4 kids. The oldest were a set of twins, about 5 at the time. They were so excited because they were getting a new pink carpet for their bedroom. I was at the house when the contractor came by to measure. He also brought a sample of the color. The kids were bouncing off the walls over the prospect of a new carpet -until he put the sample down on the floor to show them. In unison they both burst into tears. We were all so perplexed until one of the girls finally wailed, "it doesn't fit!"

I had to eject my GS from the store because he wanted to touch everything. When I was walking him out to the bench where my DH was sitting, Jamesy said "she doesn't like me either, Papa, so I guess we'll sit here together".

Many years ago my son, Chris was about 3 years old (he is now 29 - WOW where did the years go?) made a remake that I wanted to disappear over.
We were in church one Sunday and he was his usual fighty self. It was a full time job trying to keep him occupied and quiet during the service.
The church was packed and very quiet as the Minister was closing the service with the corporate prayer and as always ended it by saying, "We ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ."
All of a sudden the stillness was shattered by my son yelling out in a loud voice, "Don';t say Jesus Christ!"
Being a responsible parent I slid in the pew as far away from him as I could and gave him the same look as everyone else in the church.
It was every parent for themselves. You can just imagine the look I received from my wife. I didn't know he repeated every thing I said.

Sometimes you forget your kids are all gown up until they post something like this to their FB page.
It makes you go "WHOA! "

Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
- Edgar A. Guest

I work with a petite, highly energetic physical therapist. She is expecting, and has 2 sons, 5 and 7 years old.
When they told her kids they were going to have a baby, the 5 year old replied, completely straight faced, "lamest surprise ever"
And when she explained how making a baby is hard work, and that was why she would sit on the couch after dinner instead of doing things with the kids, her 7 year old said " I'm so glad you told me, I was afraid you were getting lazy"!

DDIL called me this morning speaking in a low voice because she didn't want to interrupt the moment. The 6 yr old was holding the 3week old on the couch while the 8yr old autistic son(I only mention that because he deals in facts and only the facts, ma'am) was holding one of his animal fact books up so baby Thomas could see the pages and he was reading to him and pointing to pictures. Rachel said Henry pointed to a cow and said that is a cow. That is where you would normally get your milk, but not yet. You get your milk from mommy. She wanted to take pictures, but thought she would ruin the moment, so she called me instead. they are enamored with their new brother. Just wait til he starts crawling. Hehehe

She spotted Dominic and was telling the baby to say hi...I commented how cute he/she was and wondered out loud whether ii was a boy or girl...Lucie my 5 year old GD said" Oh it's to ugly to be a girl" glad there was a glass door between us!

He's so right! Not at all what Santa is all about. My grandson was very upset when he realized that when he and his baby brother sat on Santa's lap something was missing.
He said "I hope that I like some of the things that Santa will bring for Max because I told him what I thought Max would like but forgot to tell him what I wanted. I guess that being a big brother means you love your brother a lot and sometimes his stuff is more important"

I'm not 1 to think all kids are beautiful( I know I know shocking isn't it???) If I think a baby is not good looking I'll comment on their size or their hair( or lack there of) but I'm not gonna lie and say ohhhh what an adorable baby!...my friend's baby was 1 of the ugliest babies I had ever seen. When the doctor showed him to her for the 1st time she said "that's not my baby" she even thought he wasn't beautiful
Now he is a good looking guy took about 1 year for the cuteness to kick in

When Sophie was born I thought she was the most beutiful thing ever, now when I look at her first pics I wonder what I was thinking!! Thankfully she has grown into her nose. Luci actually looked African American and we laughed and joked that she was someone elses child.

Darby and her Dad had a little conversation last night I thought i'd share. Darby is 5, almost 6 and she's a good girl but every once in a while a mischievous thought creeps into her pretty little head...

Darby: "what if I was home alone and opened all of my presents?"
Daddy: "Well, that wouldn't be good because Santa is watching."
Darby: "Is Santa always watching me?"
Daddy: "Yes"
Darby: "Even when my underwear are off?!?!" (disgusted look)
Daddy: (awkward moment) "uhhh no Santa knows when to look"

Last time we baby sat for James and Max, James was invited to go to movies with his friend's family, so Papa took some money out of his wallet for James to take with him. James came over to me and said "did you see what Papa has in his wallet?? A money with 100 written on it!! Where did he get such a big money??" For Christmas, instead of getting the checks that all the other boys receive, we decided to give James his in cash. When he opened his little box and saw 50 one dollar bills and a 100 dollar bill, he was very silent for a moment and then looked up with very wide eyes at his cousins and said softly "I'm a millionaire!!!".

Just watched a 'guilty dog' video yesterday that someone linked on facebook. The dogs need to take lessons from that kid!

My 5 year old grandson loves dinosaurs, sharks, snakes, etc. He also has a hearing problem, thus a speech problem. He was talking about a snake ...I thought he was trying to say rattlesnake or rattler...I kept correcting him, but finally he said, "No, Nana...not a rattler, a wrappleup snake...the kind that wraps around you & swallows you". Laughed myself sick.
