My Little Comedians

Ya'll ask some great questions! One of my dearest friends asked me what the funniest things my kids have said are. She knows my kids in real life, so she's heard some zingers out of their little mouths. Oldest kiddo used to like to ask her if he had a chicken on his head.

My kiddos are really funny. Oldest kiddo has a very dry sense of humor. If you aren't listening to him, it is very possible that you will miss some of the funniest things you've ever heard. Recently, hubby's sister informed him that he's going to be an uncle. (Well, technically, he's already an uncle, but this is the first one on his side of the family...) We decided to tell the kiddos. First thing out of oldest kiddo's mouth was, "But how? She doesn't have a husband!" He was dead serious, but hubby and I couldn't hide our laughter.

Middle kiddo is also very funny. He knows he's funny too. However, like so many kids, he is his very funniest when he's not trying to be funny. This evening I was trying to explain gout to the kiddos. (My dad has had it for a long time and recently had a flare up.) So, I was telling them about uric acid crystals building up around Pappy's knee. Middle kiddo looks at me and says "Is Pappy sparklely?" After a little Q&A, I figured out that middle kiddo thought that the crystals meant that Pappy was sparkling. It was pretty dang cute. Middle kiddo also says "My Bag" on a regular basis, but what he really means is "My bad".

The baby doesn't really talk yet. However, she has been known to growl (like the dogs) when you get to close to her food. She's got older brothers, so I'd say this is purely a defense mechanism.

So, there you have it...some of the funniest things that have come out of my kiddos' mouths lately. I'll be back tomorrow with some more answers to your questions. Think I might tackle the one about my best crock pot recipes...

    Don't tell the other kiddos, but the middle one is my favorite! I miss hearing him tell me all the going ons at home.
