So I saw another post that mentioned something funny that a kid said. I was thinking, while I love those e-mails that pass around the internet, sometimes the things our own kids say are even funnier.
So post the funny things your kids said and did. I’ll start.
This weekend Little jr. decided he wanted to make S’mores (he saw a box of graham crackers with a picture of them). Anywhoo, he wanted to make some for daddy and “the neighbor baby”. I told him that we don’t have marshmallows at home but one of these days we’d go get some. He wanted to know if tomorrow is “one of these days”. I said “nope, we’ll have to go some other time”.
He looked at me (you could see the wheels turning in his head) and he says “Oh! I get it! marshmallows aren’t in season, so we have to wait!” I was trying not to laugh, as was the guy behind the counter. I explained that marshmallows don’t go in season. Only growing things go in season. To which he replied, “Oh, so you just don’t want to get them?!?” I said, “You got it in one.”
He then asked, “How do you know when things go in season? Do you get a chart when you turn 18? Or do you just start to learn that stuff?” I told him you just learn that stuff over the years.
He then announced that “Wow, there sure is a lot of stuff I still don’t know” (he just turned 7 a week and a half ago). I told him there is still stuff that Daddy and I don’t know. So the rest of the weekend when he would ask a question and Daddy or I would begin to answer, he would want us to qualify “Is that something you [I]KNOW[/I]? Or are you just [I]guessing[/I]?”
Gotta love 'em.
