From the mouths of Babes.......

I LOVE listening to the boys and their banter, conversations, theories. They come up with some amazing ideas on how things work or should work and the things they say are just so entertaining.

Boy #2: I need my rest so I am not crazy in the head tomorrow.

Boy #1: Bricks and stones won't break my bones, but words will hurt me.
What he meant was "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me. " I think he is on to something, words can be VERY hurtful.


Conversation on the way home from school:
Boy #1: Mom, what happens if you walk through a rainbow?
Me: Nothing.
Boy #2: No mom, you're wrong. When you walk through a rainbow your body and clothes turn into the colors of the rainbow and then when you walk out you are back to normal.


Bathroom tooth brushing conversation:
Boy #2: Mom, do you know what my favorite part of my body is?
Me: Huh? (that's all I could muster with a mouth full of toothpaste and a toothbrush)
Boy #2: I like the space behind my ears, they are like little rooms. You could probably fit a crib there.
Me: Hmmmmm........(again, mouth full)


When we get in the truck we have a tendency to play a game called "Chub". This is the same game we played as kids without the hitting....aka "Slug Bug". So the same rules apply, but no hitting. They call the color and the car then they get a point. IE - Silver get the point.
Boy #1 and Boy#2: Red Chub (almost simultaneously - Boy #2 got the point, he was quicker to call it)
Boy #1: I get that point!
Boy #2: Sorry Bro, I called it a bit sooner than you.
I found this funny, Sorry Bro, coming out of the mouth of a 6 year old. The things they pick up when they aren't at home.


Me: Boy #2, I want you to go into your room (he shares it with his 2 brothers) and find clothes on the floor that belong to you and put them away.
Boy#2: Mom, you're breaking my heart right now.
He is so funny, the expression on his face looked as if his heart was truly breaking. Funny boy!

I think I should start documenting! These were great! Sorry Bro! How do they come up with this stuff?

Sally's World said...

Oh my!!! you're breaking my heart right now...too cute

I think he was right about the bricks and stones...words are far more proven when he had to tidy his room, he's probably rather be hit with a stick than hear those awful words lol!!!

this is an incredibly cute post...

i have a challenge for you, nip into my blog, or who says 8 is enough, and ask you sons the questionaire, we did it, and it is hilarious, it really gives some insight into how kids feel about us...okay, its a little embarassing too, but too funny..

so go on, i double dare you...i'd love to hear your answers!!!

Christina said...

Kids are funny. They say some crazy stuff. My also like to get me when I have a mouthful of something.

The Cookie Girl said...

Very funny boys. My daughter is the same way. she comes up with some crazy cute stuff.

Julia said...

I think we need the mini digital recorders going at all time since half the time I cant even remember exactly what they say. #2 comes up with the doozies though. How the heck I write anything I can not figure sometimes...

Running Mommy said...

Kids are so wise! If only we listen to their wisdoms.

Thanks for your input on hydration belts!

So so funny and cute! I love "I need my rest so I am not crazy in the head tomorrow." But I'm afraid if I said that to my husband he would say "ok dear" not "Oh, honey, you're never crazy in the head..."

Bethany said...

Awww, they are so precious! I love the way kids think! :)

monica said...

Kids can be so wise and pick up so much things while at school. All very cute conversations. Thanks for sharing!

monica said...

Grand Pooba said...

Ok, bathroom conversation is my favorite!!

Space behind his ears? A crib? I'm trying to refrain myself from bustin up right now!

Nap Warden said...

I love kidspeak:)

Mammatalk said...

I love kiddie humor!

Rachel said...

Aren't they funny? I'm so glad I blog these kinds of conversations, too. I'd never be able to remember all the hilarious things they say. Especially the ones that are funny only in hindsight!

Aunt Spicy said...

I am so glad that you are documenting these hilarious exchanges! What witty kids you have there...I am sure their comments are only going to get funnier!
