Kids say and do the darndest things!

  1. Ok.... How many of us have ever been totally embarassed by something one of your kids said.... I know I have....

    Here are my 3 favorites!

    My darling daughter has is a hoot!... We have to be very careful what we say in fron of her!

    We had a neighbor last year who was a stay home dad.... I was a stay home mom..... all last summer...the other moms, myself and him would sit outside our homes and watch the children play!

    That would drive my hubbie insane.... because our neighbor was always gossiping... and would have an opinion about everything... My husband was always commenting... that he needs to get a job....maybe then we would stop complaining, etc. etc.

    Well he we are sitting outside..... and what does my daughter do

    She taps him on the shoulder and says " My mommy said you need to get a job" I died! I nervously smiled and said no I didn't...andmy daughter says...ooooh i'm sorry... I meant to say my dad!

    Last month her and I were shopping at Macy's... naturally I always complain that I can't find anything to buy, can't find anything that fits nicely! She loudly , enough for everyone in the particular department to hear...Well mommy,,,, if you would get on the treadmill more often...maybe you could lose some weight, find something to wear and we can go home already!

    I was soooooo embarassed!

    Then there was the time we were at Yankee Stadium, and my son gave my daughter a nursemaid dislocation.... at least that is what they doctor there called it! my daughter starts crying...she can't move her comes along...takes the entire family to first aid... the doctor explains to us what a nursemaid dislocation is,,, and that he just has to pop it back in....he then asks how it happens..I tell him the truth... my son was pulling my daughter....all of a sons mommy it was daddy...... I saw him do it..... he pulled her arm! The doctor just looked at us.. we were so nervous....we thought for sure...they were going to call security back in!

    Does anybody else have funny stories...please share!

    When my middle daughter was ten, we took her to a therapist to evaluate why she thought at age ten she needed to be on a diet (she was and still is tiny). The Child Psychologist asked her a lot of various "How many were in a dozen?". She would not answer him. He asked her again. She sat staring out of her glasses at him like he was nuts or something. He asked her a third time, and she said "You're the Psychologist. You tell me. I already know how many are in a dozen." :chuckle

    The phone rings...the kids rush to answer it after hearing me who could that be. I don't have time to talk right now.

    One of my kids grabbed the phone and said, "My mommy says she doesn't have time to talk right now so call back later." CLICK. :chuckle

    I try to have Emma NOT answer the phone. Many times, she has said, "My mommy can't come to the phone right now, she's having a bowel movement."

    Once after a very long day I looked in the back to see my son yawning and made the comment, "I'm tired too son".......he popped back, "I'm not tired!" To which I said, " Then why are you yawning?" His reply I will NEVER forget.......I'm not yawning I am stretching my mouth! It was precious.......

    My older daughter has zinged me since she was tiny.

    Once when she was almost 2, I was sitting on the potty, and she came into the bathroom and put her hands on my knees and looked up into my eyes and said "I love you, Mama, but I've seen enough of your face. I'd like to spend the day at Aunt Maggie's."

    My own baby!!!!!!!

    Two years later, I wanted to see if I could cut my hair short enough that it would spike up. Ha!!! Well, I watched Saturday Night Live and then I took a nice, soaky bath (as only us British middle-aged women can do) and then I got out of the tub and decided to start cutting my hair. NOT a good idea. Too short - MUCH too short.

    Daughter woke up the next morning, walked past me in the kitchen and just shrugged and said "That's what you get for cutting your hair in the middle of the night."

    Oh, my younger daughter just says strange things.

    She's so laid-back. When I took her for her 1-year old checkup, she was quiet through the blood test, and didn't say anything for the ... hmmm, I wonder what it was - they gave her something Sub-Q. But when they gave her the IM injection, that was obviously escalating things and poor senile old Mama wasn't saying anything. She opened her mouth up really wide and told that nurse "Hey!!"

    She was about 2 - I'd taken her to the park and she was playing like a little dervish. Sandy playground - she down and a kid accidentally kicked sand into her face. She got up and was playing some more, and I was thinking that eye didn't look good. It was FULL of sand!!! I had a cup I was able to wash the sand out and I told her I couldn't believe she was playing with an eye full of sand, I'd have been yelling and crying and *I* had to MAKE her stop playing so I could check out the eye. I asked her didn't it hurt a lot? She said "Well, yes. It boddered me."

    Another time, she was trying to screw in a lightbulb into a lamp too close to the wall and kept barking her knuckles against the wall. I said that looks painful. Yes said "Yes, it is. And yet.... I Persist."

    LOL - that kid just kills me

    My five year old grandson was sitting on the commode during a phone conversation I was having with my middle daughter. I could hear him moaning and groaning in the background as if he was trying so hard to pass his stool. All of a sudden he shouts at his mother, and said "MOM...I'M PUSHING HARD AS I CAN, BUT IT WON'T COME OUT OF ME!" :chuckle :roll :chuckle My daughter and I laughed so hard! I told her to give him some warm water in a cup, drink it, and sit there a little would come out.

    She said, "What if that doesn't work?" I said, Then, I guess you'll have to express it out of him, dear. She said, "EEEUUUU, I'm not going to do that?" I said, Why not? It didn't bother you to handle his stinky diapers when he was a baby, did it? She said, "That's different, but express it out? Come on!" I said, You're a nurse...if one of your patients was impacted, you'd glove up and express them, so......don the gloves and help the child.

    "I've got two stories...

    My 5 y/o daughter and I went to the grocery store and while we're at the check out counter bagging the groceries the cashier sez to my daughter, "You're a big help to your mom, how old are you?" Katie sez, "I'm five and she's (pointing to me) FOURTY YEARS OLD!" :imbar Well, everyone stopped what they were doing and just looked at ME...I could have died right there.
    My son was three and I just came out of the shower. I sat on the side of the bed rubbing this bunion I have on my left foot. I said, "Geeze, mom's bunion is hurtin'". He yells down stairs to my husband who was watching a football game, "Hey dad, mom's onion hurts!" :chuckle He was right. the dang thing felt like an onion!

    Jacob was about 5. I had ordered my husband a leather jacket from the local Harley shop. I was just stepping out of the shower, (Yes, my husband was in the bathroom, but NOT in the shower with me!) heard the phone ring and my son answer. I heard Jacob say, "No, she's in the shower." THEN: "Nope, he's in there with her." It was the Harley shop calling to tell me his jacket was in!!!
    Yes, I was embarrassed to walk in that place! It's a local shop in a VERY small town! And since my husband was a big-time biker, he knew them all.....and worse, they knew us.

    Another time, he was about three or so...still taking naps. One day after he woke from his nap, he came and woke mommy and daddy from their nap! THEN went and told his grandparents that mommy and daddy take naps just like he does, only mommy and daddy's naps are "Naked naps".

    One more! We were standing in the hallway of his school one day while I spoke to some teachers. He hugged me around the waist, felt my "pouch" and said " OH MOMMY! Are we gonna have another baby?"

    I LOVE MY HEATHENS!!!!! Hate my "pouch", but LOVE my heathens!!
