That's-Not-My-Kid Thursday


We've been stuck at home all week so I can't really think of anything too embarrassing that my kids have said or done in public lately. That hasn't kept them from saying things at home of course. Here's a random sampling of kids-say-the-darnedest-things fun from this past week.

Anger Management

I caught five-year old Dee playing with my exercise ball after I had asked him multiple times not to play with it. I took it away from him and put it up high. He looked at me and very calmly said, "Mom. You make me all heated inside."

Me: What did you say?

Dee (VERY calmly): You make me heated. Like fire and flames are going to come out. All heated inside.

Me: Are you trying to say you are angry?

Dee: Yep. But more like fire.


The Plan of Happiness

Jeigh to Dee: Heavenly Father wants us to be happy. Heavenly Father wants us to have stickers. Lots and lots of stickers.


Gender Selection

The kids and I were talking about what people are. I explained that we are humans. They just looked at me confused.

Me: We aren't dogs. We aren't monkeys or fish or birds. We are humans.

Dee (looking like he's figured it out): Oooooohhh. Humans!

Then Dee turns to Jeigh and explains, "Jeigh, boys are HU-mans and girls are MA-ams. Right, Mom?"


I'm a Barbie Girl

The other day we were getting ready to go swimming. As I came out in my swimsuit, Dee looked at me and said, "Mommy! You look beautiful!", to which Jeigh added "Yeah Mommy! You're like Barbie!". Ummm, hardly, but hey! I'll take it. You don't think they've figured out how to butter me up yet, do you? Nah. I'm going to stick with my uncanny resemblance to Barbie. {snort}


Barbie Hits Bottom

Oh, don't think they're always so generous with their comments. Yesterday we were once again getting ready to go swimming and Dee said, "Mom! Your bum is HUGE!"

Me (sarcastically): Thanks Dee.

Dee: You're welcome. It's HUUUGE!


Oh wait! I did think of a public one!

We were at Walmart the other day (when are we NOT at Walmart?). As we walked past a couple of girls that were kindly waiting for us to pass, three-year old Jeigh, chock full of all sorts of teenage attitude, smartly yelled (yes, yelled), "EXCUUUUSE US! We're walking here!"

Got any good kid stories this week? Write a post, include the pic, and link up below. Or just comment. Whatever floats your boat.

I'm not a big Link Up fan, only because i never commit:) But this last week we were at payless and there was a very large bottomed women stading right infront of Caden. I noticed and thought he might comment so I was just about to steer him away when he said, "Mama that's a BIG bottom!!!"

I love the heated inside one... how funny is he! I really need to link up again. I've been kinda brain-dead lately.

OK - hilarious! I love that kids can butter you up one minute and then bring it crashing down. Oh and a thought? Have your kids been watching Madagascar 2? Cuz that might explain the "HUUUGE" comment. :)

Love it! They say the funniest things sometimes. I love it when my daughter told me that I was too old to be her mother and I was going to die soon, so she wanted to go live with her big sister!! Yep, that's me, on death's door, any minute now.......

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

LOL, okay seriously, those were pretty good.
I remember not long after I had baby number four, Joseph started pinching my leg. Then he burst out laughing, "Haha, mommy, you're squishy!"
Gee, thanks.

And can I call you Barbie from now on?

Those are hilarious! My boy doesn't say much that anyone can understand, but he is fond of angrily swinging his arm at anybody that talks to him without his permission.

I love the things that come out of kids mouths! I love that he felt like fire. That is a very insightful look at anger! Cute kids Barbie!
