Child Humor

Me to AJers: "Don’t go down in the basement right now."

AJers: "Why?"

Me: "Daddy has to make a phone call for work and he's down there."

AJers: “Are you sure there’s not another woman in his life?”

Me, in the bathroom, Tukey comes by and yells through the door:

“Mom, you still taking a doozy?”

~ ~ ~

Diva, overheard with her friend in the backyard as they practice hitting for softball:

“Get mad at it girl! Get mad at it!"

And, in preparation for batting, where they have to plant their front foot down in order to hit: “Squish the bug! Squish the bug!”

~ ~ ~ ~

AJers, sniffing around in my bathroom: "Ewwww, it smells like updog in here."

Me: "What's 'updog?'"

AJers: "Not much, what's up with you, dog?"

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Tukey: Mom, do birds lay eggs?

Me: Yeah, of course! They all do, penguins lay eggs, all birds lay eggs.

Tukey: I only thought chickens lay eggs.

Me: Nope, all birds lay eggs.

Diva, entering into the conversation: Well, how exactly do they come out? Do they throw them up, or do they poop 'em out?

Me: Well, actually, they come out of their vaginas.

Tukey: Mom, you scare me.

Were u set up with the updog thing and played along? :)

Manic Mom said...

I TOTALLY, TOTALLY fell for the updog one, and then I tried it out on our babysitter - I said, "Ewww, that smells like updog." I waited for her to fall for it, and she just stared at me and Mr. Manic and said, "Uh... sure."

I want to know what your kids said when they discovered you used up all their sidewalk chalk.

Ok this is one of my favorites from college...(and note its not G rated)

You say to someone "Do you have any fromunda cheese?"

They go "Fromunda? Never heard of that kind of cheese... What is it like"

Its cheese fromunda my toes (or another place which I wont say here).

Your kids are soooo going to want therapy when they realize all these comments have been saved for all time. These were too funny.

Just a slight change in emphasis and mayhem ensues.

birds have vaginas?

Manic Mom said...

Lainey--I think only the girl ones do. The boy ones have penises.

kids are funny.

That updog was from the Office..you let your kids watch the best show on TV??! Well done if you do.

Rusty Nails said...

Ahhh...children say the "cutest" things, don't they? Mine are becoming masters of sarcasm. They get that from their mom.

You're failed attempt at "Updog" is hilarious!! The babysitter must think you're crazy.

Manic Mom said...

The babysitter KNOWS we're crazy!

And I've never seen The Office. Don't you guys know the only show I watched this season was American Idol. Other than that, and the occasional tear-jerker Oprah, I don't watch TV. I prefer chalk-quilting and blogging.

I love the updog one too...

cubmommy said...

Those are some great quotes!

I used the updog one on my husband. He thought I was lame. Go figure.

The Office is the best show. I love it.

I like the last line of this post.
It made me chuckle out loud to my computer. Does not happen very often.
