Do you ever feel like writing everything funny or clever your kid has ever said down so that you don’t forget it? It’s easy to make yourself crazy over filling out or not filling out a baby book. But you know what? I really don’t think we’ll forget. And you want to know why? Just ask your parents. Like every time we drive on the NJ turnpike my parents remind me of the time my sister woke up from her car nap and dreamily asked….”Are we in outer space?”
Or often when I see my Mother in Law and she’ll reminisce about things her 5 year old son would say; like the time he scolded her to read his lips: “CHEN-I-CALS” after she tried to teach him the correct pronociation of “Chemicals.”
We had a photographer follow us around recently (she took the above image of P. and D. on the steps.) She wanted to feature our typical day in images and even though she probably took over 500 shots she commented that we should have been capturing every thing the kids had said that day, too. Because kid’s words can be just as great…and pretty hysterical…even touching….and often times painfully honest. We won’t forget you guys! Maybe the story will change a bit, but what story told over 30 years hasn’t?
Now just in case, here is your chance to write it down. Tell us some of your favorite “Kid’s Say The Darnedest Things” moments over on the MIM Facebook page or in the comment section below. Commence collective chuckling.
Me: “D Man, what little boys are you friends with at school?”
D Man: “Brookie”
Me: “She’s a little girl though. What boys?”
D Man: “No, No, No, No No. Mommy. She’s a WOMAN.”
