When I grow up…

  • August 31, 2010 7:18 pm

“Mommy?”

“Yes?”

“One day, I’m going to grow up and mow the grass, ok?”

“Ok, that sounds like a great plan.”

“And also?  I’m going to play the Wii without dying.  That’s what happens when you grow up.  You mow and are really good at the Wii, right?”

**I guess grown ups have all the luck, don’t they?**

Kid 1:  “So, why am I part Irish?”

Mom:  “Your great Grandmother was born in Ireland-that makes her Irish.”

Kid 2:  “Where was I born?”

Mom:  “Lewisville.”

Kid 2:  “So I’m part Lewisville then?  And part Keller?  and part Decatur?”

**You just can’t argue with that logic, can you?**

hmmmm….

Mommy:  “What are you doing?”

Kid 3:  “Getting a knife and a fork.”

Mommy:  “Ummm, you don’t need those.  Go play with your brother.”

Kid 3:  “But I NEEEEEEEEEEEEED THEM!!  He has the hiccups and I have to get them out!”

I think my mantra of “being a problem solver” might have gone a little too far….

Moms Know Everything

“I can remember the first time I had to go to sleep. Mom said, ‘Steven, time to go to sleep.’ I said, ‘But I don’t know how.’ She said, ‘It’s real easy. Just go down to the end of tired and hang a left.’ So I went down to the end of tired, and just out of curiosity I hung a right. My mother was there, and she said ‘I thought I told you to go to sleep.’”

A Stolen Conversation

  • June 14, 2010 7:33 pm

I overheard this conversation transporting kids around this weekend.  That’s the best time to see just what’s on their little minds, don’t you think?  I found this one extra entertaining….and I guess I need to learn a little more about that Justin Bieber guy.  Or the planets…that might be a little more interesting to this nerdy mom.

Kid 1:    “Justin Bieber is soooooooo hot!”Kid 2:  “I know!  I soooooooooooo think he’s hot too!”

Kid 1:  “He’s as hot as the sun!”

Kid 2:  “No, he’s as hot as Jupiter!”
Kid 3:  “Actually, if he’s as hot as a planet, he should be as hot as Mercury or Venus.  Jupiter’s actually pretty cold.”

Wilbur’s stomach was empty and his mind was full, and when your stomach is empty and your mind is full, It’s hard to fall asleep. But eventually, sleep and Wilbur found each other.

Mother Nature, in her infinite wisdom, has instilled within each of us a powerful biological instinct to reproduce; this is her way of assuring that the human race, come what may, will never have any disposable income.  ~Dave Barry
