Convos with the Kiddos

Me:  You’re a good kid, you know that?

6:  Yes, mom.

Me:  How do you know?

6:  You tell me all the time!

Oh, oops.  🙂


Driving along, 6 views a golf course that we are driving by:

Wow, that golf place must be really good.  It has TWO port-a-potty’s!

Yeah, I’m not touching that one.


6:  I wish we had something we could just throw up on the windows to make it dark in here like a movie theater.

Me:  Then we would watch a movie?

6:  Or play Mother Knows Best.

(Anyone with kids and/or who has seen Tangled a bajillionty times, will get the hilariousness of this statement).


He had a couple days off for teacher conferences and then President’s Day . . . .

Me:  (jokingly)  Are you going to miss going to school for the next couple days?

6:  I’m going to miss math class.

Me:  Um, O-Kay?

(I love my little geek!).


For V-day, he made me a couple things.  They are the sweetest and most adorable.  Thought I’d share:

TP Butterfly.

And then this . . . the boy knows how much I love free stuff!

Three Free Hugs!!

I love it when I don’t have to pay for his affection.  And I get three opportunities for hugging without compensation.  Yay!!  🙂

(He actually just asked why I haven’t used them yet, and I told him I was saving them for when I really needed a hug.  So then he tells me that he is going to give them right back when I use them.  So that means . . . never-ending hugs, y’all!!  I am totally saving these for his teenage years!).


My 3 year old apparently has big plans for his next year of life:

When I turn 4 . . .I’m going to go to bed later, eat hot dogs, handle sharp things . . .

Your brother didn’t handle sharp things when he was 4.

But I will be bigger then.  And big people handle sharp things.  Like you handled the sharp thing when we got the tree.

Here is Exhibit A of my 3 year old son actually holding “the sharp thing” when we got our tree:

Yeah, we only gave him this because the machete was a bit dull.  Mom of the year, right here.


Please note that this is the last day for submissions from all of you of any pictures you have to contribute to the weekly whacked.  If you have them and just haven’t gotten them to me, today is the day.  If you haven’t caught anything yet but are desperate to be included, get on out there and start shooting!  Then get them to me by the end of the day (EST).  (Oh, and THIS MEANS YOU, JEN!!  Get me something whickety whacked, P-town style, stat!).  Happy hunting to all!

    I love the TP butterfly!

    Also, I still shouldn’t be allowed to handle sharp objects.

    My six year old is a constant source of amusement too, I wish I could capture all of the eye rolling, the silly faces and the duh Mom faces that come out of their small bodies. They are sure dynamo’s

      That’s why I started trying to capture all the silly stuff they say. This way, when I’m old and grey (too late!!), I can look back and remember . . . while drooling on myself and sitting in a wet diaper and forgetting my own name, no doubt!

    My two youngest sons spent a week making me “Mommy Money” for Mother’s Day one year.

    It came with instructions and a list of things the Mommy Money could be spent on.

    It was truly the most priceless and precious gift I’ve ever been given. I still have it.

    I shall do my best not to disappoint you, Misty. But then again, I AM an asshole…or so I’m told. 😉

    I always thought you were a “three hugger”

    I have the most awesome pics of a 40 something year old woman, in the mall, wearing a bright pink hoodie with a gold sequin peace sign, turquoise leggings and a damn TUTU! I stalked this chick to get a picture, just for you (my parents played wing man….how awesome are they?!). BUT, my retarded ass phone has decided not to give me access to my pictures. *sigh* If they decide to pop back up any time all, I will have to share this gloriousness with you.

      Did you get the pics back? So sad that such a specimen, captured in it’s natural habitat, should go unreported and shared with the world in general. You can still send it to me when you get it back! I’ll do a second edition in the near future!! 🙂

    I love that he’s looking forward to holding sharp things! I remember using grown-up scissors the first few times and feeling like a god.

      He watches his brother use grown up scissors all the time and is so jealous.

      Should I be concerned that third on his list of things to do is having sharp instruments?

    Hee! I get to hold sharp things…and eat hot dogs! Love love love 🙂

    So I tried to get a photo for you yesterday. It’s a long story, but she caught me doing it and I started laughing so hard that the camera was shaking and the pic is nothing but a blobby blur.

    I tried hard to get one for you. I wanted a picture of the hair and the only picture I got was not close enough to really capture it.

    Your kids are too cute! I want FREE HUGS!
