Just Heard Thursday
It’s Thursday again and we have been collecting some of the funny things we heard our kids say this week. We would also love to read about what your kids are saying too. We just get such a kick out of posts like these. Here is some of what made us smile this week:
(A Conversation at night tucking Rylee in for bed…often the best times for talking with her)
Rylee: “Mama, tell me what things you love about me”
Mama: “Wow, a lot of things…(I go on to list about 15 things I love about you)”.
Rylee: “Okay, now tell me some things you don’t like about me.”
Mama: “Well, I don’t like it when you talk back to me or when you-“
Rylee: “Nevermind, I don’t think this was a good idea, it might make me sad. Can you guess who my girl friends are?”
Mama: “Thera and Chloe and Payton.”
Rylee: “Yes, and can you guess who my boy friends are?”
Mama: “Yes, Thomas, Aidan, Jake, Tommy, Zack, Adam, Aydin, Cole, Reese-“
Rylee: “That’s enough. But what about my best boy friend?”
Mama: “I don’t know. Who?”
Rylee: “I’ll give you a clue. He’s big, so big. He made the whole world. He’s everywhere.”
Rylee: “Yep. It’s him.”
Caleb: Why is there hair in the shower?
Rylee: Because mommy is losing her hair. It’s falling out all over.
Caleb: Why is that?
Rylee: She’s just losing it!
Rylee: When people try to escape from prison, what happens?
Mama: There are guards at the gates of the prison to keep them in
Rylee: Do they have guns?
Rylee: So if people leave they shoot at them?
Mama: Well, maybe they might.
Rylee: What do the guns shoot? Do they shoot out labels?
(you might be wondering why Rylee thinks guns would shoot labels…around here, every once in a while there is one label gun that gets used extensively…click here for more details)
Rylee: Caleb guess what? It’s dinner time and I’m still wearing my jammies and I’m not wearing any pull ups or panties!
Hysterical laughter ensues.
Mama: Why does the food that’s bad for us taste good?
Caleb: Salt. Lots of salt.
