Just a few funny things my guys have said/done recently.
I hope they give you as much of a giggle as they have me.
1. 5 year old is standing on the top of the stairs just outside the kitchen back door. I'm in the kitchen folding laundry. Child tells (YELLS) to me that he has picked a 'wishing flower' (you know those things that look like dandilions but they're white and fluffy) and is now going to make a wish. In the loudest voice he could muster (and boy can this child be loud!) he bellows out his wish...
"I wish my mummy was beautiful!"
I LOST it!!!! I threw my head back and screamed of laughing with tears freely flowing.
My son looks through the window positively baffled. "Mummy, what's so funny? Why are you laughing?"
Without waiting for a reply, he looks back to his flower stem and then back at me and gasps, "Oh look! It worked!!" Mind you, this 'punch line' he says in a quiet voice, so all the neighbors must have been thinking, "This poor kid is sick of looking at his ugly mother."
Isn't that fabulous?!! I have had laugh over laugh over that one. Great stuff!!
2. 8 year old is playing a Star Wars computer game as I huff and puff my way through 3 miles of aerobics. When I stop and shut off the DVD player, son turns around and says, "How much did you do today Mum?"
I answered, "Three miles today."
Son - "Oh. Well I think you could have done better than that." said with the most dismissive of voices and looks on his face. But then again, he has every reason to critique as he sits there giving his pointer finger a workout as he protects the galaxy with the mouse!!!
Can you believe it? Too funny! He really is the sweetest kid though!
3. Playing "guys" with my younger son. I'm waiting as he assembles his Lego Buzz Lightyear. I make my guy say, "Hey Buzz, how come you're not put together?"
My son, oops, I mean 'Buzz' answers, "Well you know I always say I come in peace."
LOL - isn't that great!! I come in peace - like, I come in pieces!! I thought that was so clever for a little guy that only turned 5 this summer. Ahh.. they amuse me so!
4. Last Thursday I was gathering my notes together and son #1 asked what I was doing. I told him that I was preparing for the talk I'd be giving that evening for the ladies at church. He says, "Oh, and do you feel a little shy about being up in front of everyone?"
"Yes, a little." I answered.
"Wait a minute." he tells me. He then emerges from his room with a stuffed Spiderman tucked under one arm, a Serta sheep under the other and hands filled with Star Wars guys and plastic pirates. "Here you go Mum. I'll put everyone down stairs so they can be your audience. You can practice your talk in front of them and then you'll feel good for tonight."
How bloody cute is that??? See, I told you he is sweet.
Ok, that's enough of that.
Actually, no it's not. I have a video!
My 5 year old could not get enough of "This Little Piggie" for some reason the other day. Enjoy!!
