If “Kids Say the Darndest Things” ever makes a comeback, some of our children really ought to make an appearance. I suspect they would be a big hit. Here are a few lines that we’ve heard around here recently:
Mommy, Gameboy feels wessiless. Can he have a book?
(Wessiless = Restless)
Speaking of which…
We’re really hot from playing. Can we have some refreshners?
When I grow up, I might eat my wife. If I marry an apple.
Sometimes… I just like… to stare.
(A dazed-looking child, in response to the question “What’s going on?”)
Mom! No! No!
(A wide-eyed 2 year old, pointing to a coloring page that he just pulled out of the trash. What was I thinking, throwing that away?)
Leave my house now. Or I will shoot you.
(Our soft and delicate 4 year old, while playing with dolls.)
What are some things that your children have said that made you smile, laugh, or pause in dumbfoundedness?
