Convos with the Kiddos: Part Nine

Holy cow, it’s been over a YEAR since I’ve posted a Convos with the Kiddos post!  Can you believe that?  I couldn’t, but c’est vrai! So, you would think I have an entire year’s worth of gems, right?  Well, I have some, but I may have slacked off a bit on the collecting of data.  I know, I know, bad blogger.  No cookie. 

But, without further ado, I present to you my now 5 and 8 year olds and their bon mots of brilliance:


5:  Anakin was a baby at one time.

Me:  Yes, I’m sure he was.

5:  Everyone’s a baby before they become a human.


5:  I wish I was a grasshopper.

Me:  Why?

5:  Then I could jump over buildings and jump over the house.

Me:  What kind of crazy grasshoppers do that?

5:  All of them!


5:  Do they have fireworks at a wedding?

Me:  Fireworks?

5:  Yeah, you know, fireworks that go off after they fall in love?


Talking about smoke stacks:

5:  Those are the machines that make clouds!



Preparing to go to a wedding and my kids see me in a very rarely worn dress:

5:  Wow mom, you look like a woman!

Me:  Um, ok.

5:  Or like a grandma!

Me:  No, let’s go with that first one.


Me:  How’s dinner?

8:  Good.

5:  Not good.

Me:  Why not good?

5:  My tongue doesn’t fit in the spices.


Me:  Hey, there’s one more carrot on your plate saying, “look at meeeeee.  Eat me!”

5:  ((giggling))

Me:  Don’t laugh at me!  That’s the carrot talking.

5:  Yeah, but he has a severe case of the hookabellies!


Me:  Wow, you’ve really worked up an appetite playing baseball!

8:  Yeah, I’ve worked up an appetite and a drinkitite!



Fall/Halloween Convos

On a hayride:

5:  A big fat rabbit would like this habitat!


5:  Skeletons are almost like people except they don’t have blood and skin and all that.


On Halloween morning:

5:  I wish I could fast forward my day!

Me:  To what part?

5:  To the part where I get treats!


8:  If any monsters come in here, I’ll just toxicate them!

Me:  What’s toxicate mean?

8:  I don’t know, like making them toxic?

(I thought he said intoxicate at first.  That would have been quite the defensive move!)


Bonus:  Convo with the hubs . . .

Trick or treating with my son’s baseball team and their parents, riding around on the back of a truck, wearing a Halloween mask:

Hubs:  I’m in a truck full of ladies with a rubber on my head.  I believe in safe trick or treating.

    “You look like a woman”. HA,ha! That is great! I remember reading a story in Spanish to five 3 year-old little girls and in the middle of the story, one of them yelled out, “Maria, you look like a man!” Needless to stay I lost my place in the story and was speechless for quite a while. 🙂

    There should totally be fireworks at a wedding.

    Also, “Hookabellies?” What are they, prostitute’s tummies? And how would your son know about those?

    My daughter used to argue that babies weren’t human until they reached the age of five. The fact that her little brother was three at the time had a little something to do with that.

    If you’re looking to up your inane, irreverent humor game and learn to write like a Douglas Adams or a Tom Robbins, just talk to your kids. They are brilliant!

    Hilarious! You should put your children on the next “Kids say the Darndest Things” show with Bill Cosby!! 😀

    P.S. One day I’ll have to blog about the comment my daughter made regarding our Swiss friend’s Speedo bathing trunks. I think I’m gonna have to get her permission first… 😉

    I had a severe case of the hookabellies last weekend after we tried a new Mexican place.

    Misty, what’s with all the Frenchification all over the place? Are you posting from Quebec? You’re a multi-lingual smartypants, vraiment?

    I think your children are quite brilliant, be careful they will soon have you running in circles.

    A human sized grasshopper probably would be able to jump over a house. Why isn’t science working on this?

    Those are great! Yesterday my 5yo niece said she wanted some alone time with the boo boo on her finger and my almost three year old nephew wished my baby was a squirrel so he could feed her the acorn he found.
