I love this topic! My daughter provides me with a new ridiculous anecdote almost daily.
I've blogged about my favorite one here:
Funniest thing my daughter ever said:
Singing to a Destiny's Child Song: "I'm a Saliva, I'm gonna mate it!" can you guess which song it was? LOL
If my memory serves me correctly, she was 3 yrs old?
At the tender age of nine, my oldest came home with some very disturbing MISINFORMATION about "the birds and the bees."
Yipes. I had no choice but to take her for a short ride in the car, just the two of us, and give her the basics. Just the basics, of course, and I left the discussion open-ended, told her she was welcome to get more information from any other trusted girlfriend of mine, her (woman) doctor... anywhere except from boys. "Why not from boys?" she said.
Er... "Well, boys don't have the same parts, and most of the time don't really KNOW the facts," I grabbed out of the air, not wishing to get into the whole "boys have an agenda, and can't control themselves at that age, and WILL lie, etc...."
Either way, I gave out basically the "need-to-know" info, left things open for future discussion, and told her if she had any other questions, she was more than welcome to come to me anytime.
About an hour later, as I was cooking dinner, she did have a question.
"Mom? Where do the legs go?"
Trying desperately not to laugh, I bit on my wooden spoon as if I was thinking, then said: "When the time comes honey? You'll figure that one out."
Oh there are so many but the one that stand out the most are:
THIS ONE IS KINDA GROSS ---BE WARNED!!!
I see a booger on the wall. (ewwww) I ask my older daughter "Did you put a booger on the wall?" she replies "How far up on the wall is it?" All I can do is stare at her. I guess depending on WHERE on the wall she could blame her younger sister! LOL
I know kinda gross but kids you know!!!
Okay, I can tell this here because my husband will never read it...
One time my husband took our then-potty-training son to the restroom in a store to go to the bathroom. He decided to go too, since they were already there. After our son had finished his business it was my husband's turn. He unzipped his pants and our son yelled very loudly "Wow, Daddy! You have a huge penis!" Of course the men's room just happened to be full of other people at the time!
BTW, I'm laughing my head off at Shawn's booger story! My kids would so do that!
A couple years ago at thanksgiving, my then 7 year old nephew announced to the entire table of 30 people including my 93 year old grandmother that "sometimes my dad sleeps naked".
I guess my sister and her husband need a lock on their bedroom door!! =0)
My daughter who was 3 at the time came in to the kitchen, lifted up her nightgown and had her underwear pulled up in her tooshy like a thong and said "this is how you wear your underwear mommy"!!
