I try writing down funny things the kids say before I forget because I use our blog as part of my journal.
Here is a conversation Tyler and I had last week. Here is some background before reading this- My parents are divorced. Growing up my dad wasn't around very much so, all of the kids had a lot of responsibility. My older brothers kind of helped my mom disciplining, so Tyler heard that Uncle Stephen (my oldest brother) would spank us.
Tyler- "Mom when I am big can I spank the other kids?"
Me- "No, because when you are big then they will be big too."
Tyler-"But Uncle Stephen got to spank you all."
Me- I explain to Tyler that my parents got divorced and why Uncle Stephen had to do that.
Tyler-" When you and dad get a divorce can I spank them?"
Me- "No, Tyler. Mommy and Daddy aren't getting a divorce we love each other. We were sealed together in the temple. Do you know what sealed means?
Tyler- (sarcastically)"Yes, it means we are stuck together as a family."
Tyler-"Well, when Dad dies can I spank them?"
What a crazy child!!
Here is some of the conversation I had with the girls last night. I was getting the girls and Ethan into jammies.
Isabelle- (in a real whiny voice)- "I want another baby."
Me-"Well, we aren't going to have any more babies. Ethan is our baby."
Isabelle- (still in the whiny voice mode)-" I want Ethan to be a baby girl."
Me- "Ethan can't be a baby girl because he is a baby boy."
Isabelle- "Well, when Ethan grows up he can be a girl."
Me-"No, Ethan will never be a girl. Ethan is a boy. Girls have girl parts and boys have boy parts."
Then conversation went into a little more detail for a 3yr. old and 5yr. old and I am not going to type the rest here, but it had me cracking up laughing.
I would love to be able to open up the kids minds and see all they they think in their heads.
