If I'm ever at a loss on what to blog about, I know I can always fall back on the crazy things kids say. No matter how many times I've shared their comments here or on Facebook, their little mouths and minds continue to supply an endless stream of new and improved material.
Like last year when my daughter's teacher was going over the three branches of government: executive, legislative and judicial. As she went into deeper detail about the judicial branch, my daughter promptly raised her hand and volunteered this profound statement: "My aunt is a court." Her aunt (my sister,) is actually an attorney. Close enough.
At the beginning of school last year, my son's teacher asked the students to draw a picture of something they did during the summer and write a sentence about it. My son drew a picture of himself and a big fish. He wrote, "I cot a 10 pond CRAP." Translation~ "I caught a 10 pound CARP," which by the way is a fish tale as it was only about 2 pounds. Thankfully, he didn't get in trouble for writing a cuss word on his paper.
My sweet little niece Marin, who just turned 6, says she loves to LERAX. Translation~ Relax Me too!!!!!!
My nephew, Bobby, who is 5 visited us at the lake a couple of weeks ago. We drove him by the dam the Tennessee Valley Authority uses for flood control and power generation. We said, "Look Bobby, there's a dam." His reply? "Did beavers build that?" Then as I got ready to take him on his first jet ski ride he asks, "Does this thing have a seat belt?"
Finally, I have lots of proud mommy moments, but this is not one of them. When my son was much younger, he spotted a woman who had apparently forgotten to wear her upstairs undergarment. He taps me on the shoulder and says, "Mom, look... that lady has dot boobs." What can I say.. he's all boy.
