Wednesday wonderings - your funny kid and pet stories



The Pea recently had "blog" as a one of her weekly spelling words. When we first read the list, she giggled and said, "Mama, I read your blog!" I was startled and asked her to explain. She said, "I googled it on my iPad!" Her iPad is not web-enabled, but it seems Miss Thing knows her way around the interwebs or thinks she does.

What's the funniest thing to come out of your child's mouth recently? Or, if childless, feel free to share a furbaby story.

Upon waking my little 4 year old began talking about TV shows she wanted to watch and I suggested a book. Her reply was "I have a story for you. Once upon a time. Blah, blah, blah, the end"
She is our funniest one.

Too funny. I see tots on ipads and phones in the stores these days..wonder what that generation will be like later on. My kids (20's early 30's) are so savvy it makes me look totally impaired. Have a lovely day, you and the Pea. xo Nancy

My 8 year old came home from school today and told me that the chorus they went to see at the high school sang that rock song, you know the one, "Living on a Prairie". I died. Bon Jovi meets Laura Ingalls. And I still haven't corrected her because I am looking forward to seeing my husband's reaction when she tells him.

Raina, we need to be able to like comments, because EAC's made me bend over in my chair laughing.

My daughter attended her first dance last week (she's in 5th grade and her brother, Jack, is in 8th grade). When I picked her up, she hopped in the car and said, "Jack said he hated the dance. Not sure what planet he's on? It was the best night of my life!" Yikes - thinking I've got a party animal on my hands.

I was in the kitchen while caring for my 7-year old grandson at his home. He came up to me and said, "Do you want to see something that's very important to my family and me?" Of course I said yes. He led me down the hall, asked me to turn on the light, then opened the linen closet door. From the floor he pulled out a large,gray plastic storage bin and lifted the lid. Looking up at me, he said, with solemn mien,"Chemicals." The bin was filled with cleaning products. He said no one knew about them, especially his younger brother. We agreed his brother was too young to know about these serious items.

I really should start writing stuff down because I forget most of the funny things they say or do by the end of the week. A couple of recent stories - my kids got their eyes examined and thus dilated in their early morning appt. before school. My 6th grade daughter refused to wear the goofy disposable sunglasses, saying she was fine. My 2nd grade son loved his and hopped out of the car wearing them into school. When he got off the bus that afternoon (6 hours later) he was still wearing the sunglasses. He wore them ALL day. Must have looked like a mini Stevie Wonder walking down the halls of the school but he didn't care at all. Then just the other day, my daughter misspoke and called the movie, "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" - "Cloudy with a Chance of Balls." We just cracked up.

When I was bemoaning to/teasing my son that Stanford was just so far away (he was accepted in December) and that it was not too late to consider some freezing midwestern colleges. He said with mock sympathy, "Mum, you shouldn't have read me Kipling and D' Aulaires Greek Myths as a kid if you weren't prepping me for a prestigious institution."
My ten year old then popped her head up from her oatmeal bowl and said without missing a beat, "You know, he's got a point." I love when they express their sibling bond.
