Memory Monday

Having a three year old is a constant exercise in patience, fortunately this job also comes with built in humor relief. Kid's really do say the darnedest things......

Out of the Mouths of Babes

  1. Last night I roasted a chicken for dinner. O was helping me while I carved it and we discussed it's anatomy. First she said she wanted to eat the wings, next the legs. Finally she asked me "Mom do chicken's have butts?" "Why, yes" I replied. "Good I'll take the butt, I want to eat chicken butt." Lovely!
  2. Last week we were driving in the van and O was sassing her brother. T yells "You are not the queen of me". O looks at him with hate in her eyes and screeches "I know I'm the princess!"
  3. I was putting the children to bed last week and gave them a 15 minute warning. When time was up I told O. She proceeded to tell me "I still have 5 minutes left". I replied "No you don't. You can't even count to five" Again O looks at me defiantly and states "Yes I can on my fingers,see" she raises her hand and shouts "1,3,17,8,5...time is not up!"

Some days this job may be thankless but luckily it is not short on laughs...
