March 14th, 2008, 10:04 PM #1Kids Say And Do The Cutest Things!
Okay, knowing how many other people here have young kids, and knowing how kids and say and do some of the funniest things...
What have your kids said or done lately that you want to share with everyone?

Okay, I'll start...
Gabriel was taking a kindergarten assessment a couple weeks ago. One of the questions they asked all the kids was "Where do you live?" He answered "Texas". They apparently tried to get more specifics from him, and he said "Texas de Brazil". (For those of you not familiar with it, it's a Brazilian steakhouse that has all the meat you can eat for about $45.)
And another (not quite as recent)...
At Christmas two years ago, we didn't put any of the presents under the tree until Christmas Eve (because Gabriel would have opened them). At church, one of his teachers asked what was under his Christmas tree. He replied, "Carpet".

We were riding in the car and passed an A&W Restaurant. My son asked what the A&W stood for. After he thought about it a few seconds and then he said it must be Amburgers & Wootbeer.

Amburgers & Wootbeer!
I think I shared this before, but my 7 year old nephew and 5 year old niece go around singing "Viva Viagra". LOL. They have no idea what viagra is, but they heard it on tv.-Don't criticize anyone til you've walked a mile in their shoes. Then when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

I asked my friends little girl what her favorite colors were. She was around 4 I guess.
"yellow, purple, and orangesparkly."
My cousins little 4 yo boy told him once, after being told he was correct about something:
"Daddy, would I ever steer you wrong?"

March 14th, 2008, 11:23 PM #8Another wonderful thread, Mr. Coley!
The one that I can remember off the top of my head is my daughter saying the following looking at her grilled chicken at Outback the other day: "This chicken didn't get to have her own children. She was shot down too early..." [word-for-word translation from Russian]
She transfers family associations to everything she sees. Yesterday she was looking at lobsters in a grocery store, and was telling me what the biggest one is the father, the medium one is the mother, and the smallest ones are their daughters.

My cousin, his wife and children live in China and were here visiting last month - his 5 year-old daughter, Beatrice had never met us. The first night they were here, Bea asked my mother if she had a baby in her tummy. It was hilarious because my mother has a big belly but she's in her 80s. Everyone at the table about lost it.

Two summers ago I met my youngest daughter and two of her three boys at a fast food restaurant halfway between our homes. I was bringing her oldest son back after he spent a long weekend with us. The two younger boys (7 and 3) were in top form; they had been entertaining the other customers for at least 15 minutes when I got there.
Picture Emilio (3) as he scrambled upside down from booth to booth, hanging on to the table with hands and feet (playing spider monkey, I guess) The people who were eating at nearby tables were watching closely to see what would happen when he
1- fell and broke his head, or 2- we grabbed him and broke it for him. We were getting to the end of our rope trying to keep him reined in enough to avoid law enforcement.
He stopped bouncing around long enough to yell across a few tables at me - "Grandma, who's turn is it to go home with you?"
I said "Nobody's. Who wants to take care of a bunch of little animals for a week, anyway?"
He jumped down and came running "I do, I do! What kind are they?"

The kids and I go to Chick-Fil-A quite a bit. We usually eat first, then they play, then we usually swap the toy from the kids meals for ice cream. Gabriel has always been interested in doing things on his own, so I've gradually given him more opportunity/responsibility. At first, he would go up with me and I would exchange the toys for ice cream. Then, we would go up together and he would do the exchange. Eventually, I would stand back at a distance at let him go up by himself. Now, I let him go to the counter by himself and just keep an eye on him from the table.
On one visit to Chick-Fil-A a few months ago, when he went up to the counter near the ice cream machine it was a little busy and none of the employees noticed him. After waiting patiently for a few minutes, he shouts out "HELLO! A CUSTOMER!" I was embarassed, but I could see several of the customers in line grinning about it, and he definitely got the attention of the employees.

We have a new Sonic just down the road that has a big outdoor play area (first I've ever seen at a Sonic!). We took the kids there for dinner last night. We got a lot of rain earlier this week, so there were some puddles in the play area including a big one a few inches deep at the bottom of the smallest slide. I noticed Grace at the top of slide and said "Look at Grace. This should be good!" I figured she would go feet first into the puddle. When she got to the bottom she fell butt-first right in the middle of the puddle. I wish I would have had a camera! We were almost rolling on the ground laughing.

One young friend of my kids stated "Meat is my favorite vegetable!"This World is Not My Home
We're gonna go inside, we're gonna go outside, inside and outside. . . And then we're gonna go go go and we're not gonna stop til we get across that goalline! Quotes from the movie Rudy, 1993

My step-cousin use to say when he was little that he wanted to grow up to be a dog.
But more recently, a few days ago as a matter of fact, I was in bed sleeping, and heard my 2 year old yelling quite insistantly "mommy, mommy come here" a earlier then usual. I got up and went into his room, and the poor thing had leaked through his diaper (a new brand we are trying this week while starting potty training). Anyhow, I walked in and said .. "Awww did you leak Braedon, poor thing .." and he looked at me as serious as can be with a frown on his face and said, " NO, Daddy pee in my bed!" and as he walked out of his room .. "Daddy mean!" Daddy of course was still asleep .. lol.KK

A friend of mine's daughter was in kindergarten....the teacher reported this to her. One day her daughter sneezed really hard and blew some snot down on the front of her shirt.
Then she looked down at the mess on her shirt and said "Oh, Sh*t."
Mom and dad started to watch their language and the teacher got a story she can tell forever.

My son, who just turned 6 yrs. old, and his cousin were talking about riding bikes today. My son didn't have his helmet and his cousin said he could borrow one of her's.
He replies, "I don't need a helmet. I'm a professional."

LOL - I love all these kids quips.
And Michael, laughing at poor little Grace for landing butt first in a puddle is mean (but a cute visual).

My daughter has a T-shirt that says "100% Loved". She cannot read in English yet, so she asked me the other day (when I was helping her put that T-shirt on): "What does it say, Daddy?" I said: "100% Loved". She goes: "The T-shirt is?" :-)

When my daughter was 3 (and in a very open, unstructured campus pre-school), I asked her one day "What's the difference between girls and boys?"
She thought for a couple of minutes, and replied, "Boys go to the bathroom standing up."

Here's another funny one...
Last year at Gabriel's four-year checkup, the pediatrician asked him a number of questions to evaluate his mental development. One of the questions was "If Mommy is a girl, Daddy is a..." Later, the pediatrician confided to us that one little girl had answered "an a__hole" when asked that question. Her mother was totally embarassed.

My 10 y.o. son recently got into a huge argument with me. Wouldn't go out to the bus stop because he was all riled up with an online game he plays all the time - it was really ugly.
He comes home and I say "no computer" and you need to write me an apology note before you'll ever see the PC again.
Hands me a note 10 minutes later which I have to give him credit for, he put a lot of thought into it:
I'm sorry for yelling at you. I know I needed to leave but the guy I was playing
on the game was a real prick and I should have left. I won't do again. Please
forgive me. Love, H"
We're laminating the apology note & will show it to him again when he's 20 and has a girlfriend over ;-)

Gabriel noticed a sign at a Sonic that said, "Open 24 Hours", and exclaimed, "Open 24 hours? That's past our bed time!"
