out of the mouths of babes

I've been jotting down some of the things the girls have said in the past few weeks that have made me laugh.  Here are a few of them:

B to E:  I need you to listen to what I'm saying.  All you have to do is practice if you want to learn how to do gymnastics.

B to E:  (singing) Hush little baby, don't make a sound.  Mama's gonna buy you a principal tonight!

B to E:  (E is crying) I know, sweetie-- it's hard to explain!

K: (in the car as we passed a cemetery) Mom, is that where you go dig yourself in and then die?

*This gives a whole new meaning to “digging your own grave,” doesn’t it?

B: (sitting on the toilet) Mom, we’re all out of toilet paper!

Me: Okay, Berks, I’ll get you some TP. Just a minute.

K: Mom, I need a GP!

Me: What?

K: You know, GP—a green pickle!

B:  Mom, remember when you had your baby?  And when it came out, it hurt?

Me: Yeah, Berks. I remember!

I love a good GP every now and then. These are very funny and it makes me excited to see the girls soon. One last thing, what does a good principal cost these days??

Lisa said...

That is so funny! I love love love when kids are little. They don't even know they're being funny and cute!

yeah, totally not sure where the "principal" came from. never priced them out, but they're a pretty penny, i think!

How funny! I love it! LOL! I was just re-reading my (dust-covered) journal and had a few 'one liners' in there from Jack that cracked me up! I can't believe I'd forgotten some of those things and was really glad I'd written them down, but it made me realize there's plenty of other gems that I didn't take the time to write down.

I think my favorite line is Berkeley's, "I know sweetie - it's hard to explain." So sweet and motherly! LOL!

Those are great! And now, I can acutally "picture" them saying those things. So great to see you -- Happy Thanksgiving!

I love kids! They seriously make the day so much more fun and interesting. Just seeing you list makes me wish that I would write down more of what they say. They can be so funny :) Hope you guys have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Kind of crazy that people went so wild and rented whole theatres. Each person was responsible to pay for their own seat; which covered the cost of the theatre. It was fun. But I am glad that I wasn't the one responsible :)
