I've said it before, and I'll say it again: one of my favorite things about being a parent is the funny things my children say.
One of my least favorite parts of being a parent is how many brain cells have disappeared from my head since giving birth to my children. Can I get a what-what? I know if I don't write down the cute things my kids say, those cute things will be gone from my memory by next week.
So I write them down, more for me than for you. But if you get a good laugh from them, I am very happy. I like to make people laugh, and so do my kids!
Snapper (age 7)
"I have been doing a lot of pondering recently. I have made a careful conclusion to start making wise decisions."
"Mom, forget going to McDonald's! I used to think you could win $50,000 for playing that Monopoly game thing, but now I know it's nothing but a big admitiser (advertising) gimmick!"
"Don't look now, Mom, but I think my brother is trying to pull the wool over your eyes!"
at her swim meet, right before the first race: "I'm so nervous that the butterflies in my stomach are also in my bladder and I think they are going to make me pee in the pool!"
Pepper (age 3)
when walking through the athletic club, yells at the top of his lungs to the 5 people on the treadmills: "Hey there! Keep on working it! Go get those muscles! Get those muscles! Get those muscles! Go, go, GO! I know you can do it!"
to a lady at Snapper's swim meet: "My name is Spiderman Kid Boy Pepper!"
to the nurse who did a blood draw for me on Tuesday: "You hurt my mommy, so I'm going to squash you like a bug right now! Be very afraid!" (she pretended to be scared, then beat it out to the hall where she burst out laughing)
"No Mommy, I'm not your boy! I'm your precious, adorable boy!"
after I hung up from a phone call with Matt: "Mommy, you weren't talking to my daddy, you were talking to your sweetheart!"
"I'm not Spiderman yet, but I will be any minute! I'm just waiting for my webs to come in."
"Mommy, I'm NEVER sleepy! And I'm NEVER naughty! And I'm ALWAYS hungry!"
I asked him if he wanted to exercise with me: "No Mommy, I don't like to exercise. I would rather sit on the comfy couch with my cozy blanket and eat cheese and crackers!"
"Don't be angry at me, Mommy, I'm just too cute for that!"
comes into my room wearing blue and yellow plaid shorts, a Hawaiian floral patchwork shirt, and red socks: "Look at me, Mommy! I got dressed all by myself! I'm so handsome, Mommy! Aren't you proud of me?"
"I hafta go potty right now! I can't wait! I think the candy I just ate is going to push the poop right out of me!"
while watching me exercise: "Wow, Mommy, your butt sure is big!" (Mom's favorite line...)
Have a happy Sunday!
