Years ago, we took my then four year old son to the state capital to see a manger scene at Christmas. We had a wonderful evening, walking all around the capital grounds and looking at the decorations.

Months later, in the middle of summer, we were driving along the interstate and you could see the capital off in the distance. He looked at me with his big brown eyes and very solemnly announced, "That's where baby Jesus lives."

my son is obsessed with cacti and I bought him one last night to surprise him this morning. So he's talking about the thorns and says, "momma why does the cactus have so many pricks?" and kept on talking about the pricks this, the pricks that. I must be all of 13 and a pre*****cent boy at that because I couldn't stop myself from giggling while hubby explained that thorns prick but they are not pricks.

I'm loving the stories on here.

This is a little conversation I had with my friends nephew last year. He's by the backyard door/gate thingy playing with it so I go over to make sure he doesn't get his finger caught or hit himself with the door and I go:

Me: Hey Aaron what are you doing? Are you playing with the door?

Him: NO!

Me: So then what are you doing?

Him: I'm playing with the door.

Oh and I almost forgot to tell yall what my little cousin told me a couple of years ago. She was around oh I don't know maybe 7 or 8. I had ran out of gel and didn't have time to go and buy any so I had to make due with the very little tiny bit of gel that was left so my hair was looking a bit poofy that day. My little cousin comes up to me and says:

"Your hair looks tacky"

A couple weeks ago, I was watching a Battlestar Galactica episode. The teaser music came on, and my little girl came tearing out of her room and yelled, "Cylons!" at the top of her lungs. I almost fell off the couch from laughing so hard.

Now her new thing is calling everyone "buddy". She'll grab my hand to show me something and say, "Come on, buddy!" It's so cute.

Priceless - don't you love it when they don't miss a beat?

When my youngest daughter was about 4 or 5 she had snuck upstairs while the rest of us were downstairs watching a movie. She came into the room and said, "See my new shoes!" We looked over & she had gotten oldest daughter's pantylines, and put them on her feet, carefuly putting the 'wings' over her instep to hold them on. My sons started groaning and rolling in the floor, I buried my face in the pillow, oldest daughter started shrieking...hub was the only one to keep a straight face - he's good at that. We admired them (she had colored them--somehow!) and told her that she really needed to stay out of those (I told daughter to find someplace to keep them -put them in our bathroom if necessary). So I calmed down and took her upstairs...to find that she'd also put a couple on our cat - the longhaired cat. Who was NOT happy when I peeled them off.....

Our oldest son went through a period where he called us both 'dear'. He'd come up and tug on a shirt and say, 'Dear, can I have some teddy grahams (and whatever happened to dinosaur grahams?) My MIL heard him one day and couldn't figure out where he'd gotten it. Well, DUH! Your son & I call each other that all the time, we call him dear....in fact, pretty much the only time I used their names is when I am calling them for something...and all the endearments are interchangeable. I can walk into a room and say 'Sweetheart' and everyone in the room says, what? Then I have to single out WHICH sweetheart I am talking to...

I adore kids...and these stories bring back a lot of memories.

Susan I'm rolling over here!

I had a similar episode as a 4 year old. Mom saw me walking funny one day and kept hearing a crinkling. After asking me she realized I'd gotten into her pad stash and put some on - UPSIDE DOWN. So I was walking around with a gimp while trying to pretend to be like mom.

Alicia Bridges' I Love The Nightlife was on the radio and I changed the lyrics to, "Lilly loves the nightlife, she's got to boogie," as I sang along. Catherine promptly responded, "she doesn't have any boogies, mommy."

Emma's latest thing is pointing out who has boobies.

"Emma has boobies."
"Yes, Emma has boobies."
"Daddy have boobies?"
"Yes, daddy has boobies." This is usually followed by a nose crinkle and a "Ewwww....yucky boobies." (Yes, I do say, "No, boobies aren't yucky, silly girl." or something similar).

She also has a habit of going, "NAAAYYYYKEEEE!!!!" and putting her arms up when she's nekkid right before bath.

The other night they were outside and I heard her say, "HEY GUYS! What's going on?! What happened?!" It's cute because she's two and her speech is still developing, but the excitement and emphasis on certain words is the best part.

Ah, the joys of being a nakie baby...my daughter loves it too. When I tell her it's bathtime, she runs to her room and says, "Nakie time!" while bouncing up and down. She also will tell me she has a beautiful bum-bum and beautiful girl place when I'm doing her diaper change.

Last night, we were watching the end of American Idol and Jason got voted off. For some reason, she really liked him, and when they were showing his goodbye package, she said, "Bye, Jason," in the most wistful little voice.

When my nephew was 3, my friend had him in the car and I guess the sun was shining on him pretty heavily and he looked uncomfortable. As she tried to adjust the shade she asked him if he was upset by the sun. He said, "Yes, I'm stress-strated."

As I have stated many times before. Korbin is a monkey, he is always climbing up something. Well the other day he was climbing up his headboard to look out the window. We told him "Get down ya monkey!" and he said "I'm NOT a MONKEY, I'm a Korbin!!!"

"Be nice mommy. You know better."

"Cover your mouth when you cough, mommy! You know better."

"Boogies, mommy! (as she pulls them out of her nose) it looks like apple pie!"

ROFL that sounds like my Korbie with the "you know better".

I was doing a facial one day, and when he seen me after I put the mask on. He got so mad at me! "NO MOMMY!!! That is not your face! You go wash face, you know better!"

And here's another from the other day. He's only 2 and is usually in the bathroom with me playing in the water when I take my baths everyday, so I never worried about being undressed in front of him, until the other day. After my bath, I went to the kitchen (best light), still in my towel to touch up my legs and underarms with my epilator. When I did my underarms, the towel slipped, and he yelled at me. "No mommy! You get clothes on, you know better!"

He lectured DH similarly over scissors after he cut his hair over the weekend. He took the hair out of the trashcan and told him to put it back.

This is one of my most favorite threads. Heartwarming, funny, at times a little gross, hilarious in such a sweet way.

Perfect for Mothers Day coming so soon!
