"'Mom, when did we meet?'" - Joanna, mom of one, Willowbrook, IL
My daughter and son in law are in the process of potty training my granddaughter who is 2 ½ years old’
This girl just loves smarties so the deal is if she uses the potty she gets rewarded with smarties
She was having a sleep over with us so we went and picked her up and as soon as we got home I asked her Do you need to go potty
Too funny as she just looked at me straight in the eye and said “ Do you have smarties?
I told her yes I do and to the potty she went
When my daughter was about 3, my hubby & I were starting on the "stranger danger" training. I happened to be in WalMart with her after a lesson, when a nice WalMart employee bent down to ask Kimmie if she was having fun with Mommy. Kimmie turned her back on her. I was rather embarrassed, but the lady reassured me that it was fine. She tried again, and again Kimmie turned her back on her. When the lady asked why she wouldn't speak to her, Kimmie replied, "I can't talk to you. My Mom says you're strange!"
My friendsvery young daughter once came into the living room with a pot on her head and said: Look mommy I'm a Pot Head.
One hot summer day I decided to take my 2 year old to the local, public swimming pool,........as we were getting undressed to get our swim suits on, a bunch of older ladies were getting changed from their 'fitness class' just just finished in the pool,........I saw my 2 year old scanning around the room so I quietly told him,...."its not nice to look at other people when they are changing" to which he very loudly replied,......."Look Mommy!! dat yady has free tummys!". (meaning,...that lady has 3 tummys)
After I received a very dirty look from "dat yady",......I quickly picked my child up and headed for the pool area feeling VERY embarrassed to say the least! LOL
Our oldest is a boy, then we have 5 girls. Our house is non-stop singing and talking. My daughter, who was 6 at the time, was talking as usual, when she all of a sudden paused and said. " I have thinkings in my head when I am not talking." Yeah...go with that!!
Another daughter was trying to be diplomatic about the food on her plate that she didn't like: "Everyone has different taste bugs, you know!"
Another time, the same daughter states, " I don't like butter nut squash, it tastes like the stuff in my ears!".
One Sunday evening my 5 year old son and I were on our way home after a pleasant dinner with his God parents when he started telling me about what he had learned that day at Sunday school. Mommy he said, Jesus died you know. I said yes I know sweetie. He said, yes but he died and then he came back to life. Again I said yes your right. Then he told me that Jesus died, then he came back to life... and when he comes back to life he brings us Easter eggs!
My Dad was driving my family through Winnipeg and we drove past a Tim Horton's (a coffee and doughnut shop for those who don't know) and my brother said "I know why Tim Horton's is never robbed" everyone else said "why?" "Because the police are always there" We all laught hard because it's true there's always police or amblance people there. He was so upset that we were laughing at him. we had to explain we were laughing because it's so true.
