These past few weeks have been packed with kid stuff: Valentines Day, the middle Picky's 6th Birthday, a 125-person breakfast for art kids and their families, paper-mache in the kindergarten classroom. LOTS.OF.KIDS.
But man, these little guys are funny.
As we were prepping for a long weekend costumed as a "Mid-Winter Break", Picky #1 started to talk and ask about our plans for President's Day. She wanted to bake a cake and Picky #2 said:
"Am I going to get presents, too, for Present's Day?"
Awww...sweet little guy. I had to tell him that no, he wasn't going to get any presents and didn't he just have a birthday?
When I was in Kindergarten class, I helped a sweet little boy wash his hands of all the paper-mache gobbly-goo that was on his hands. This was our serious conversation:
"I don't like hot water in my bath."
"Really? Why not?"
"It hurts my skin. Especially my privates."
Ohmygosh, I just wanted to burst out laughing because he was so completely serious, so the only response I could fathom was this one:
"I totally can understand that. You're right, little man."
But inside, I totally lost it.
Winnie, Dog #3 (and also a very playful puppy) finds Picky #3 to be a suitable play-friend. She will chase, nip and knock him over just like she does with the other dogs and most days, he plays right back. A little while ago, I heard a nervous wail from the other room:
"Weeenie! WEENIE. BIT. MY. BUTSY!!!"
What a bummer. he quickly got over it, but Hubby and I have been laughing about it for a while now.
When these vacation breaks get stressful, listen to the kids.
They can provide you with lots of comic relief.
What are some of your funnies?
