Mouths of Babes...
Kids say the darndest things....
Here are a few samples of the things being discussed in our house!!
I took a bite of Stella's bagel while she was talking. She looked down and noticed a bite missing and said, "WHO TOOK A BITE OF MY BAGEL??" I very calmly told her that I had taken the bite.
She replied, "Well then. I'm gonna kick your ass."
(yes, we had a long conversation about that one.)
Mom- How's the 5th grade drama these days?
Mom- Still got a girlfriend? Amelia?
Finn- Yeah. But Raina is causing trouble because she's good friends with MaryAna. And Mary Ana likes me.
Mom- Yeah. You're pretty cool.
Finn- Raina said she was gonna kill Amelia so I went to talk to her and tell her to stop being mean to Amelia. She thinks everyone is afraid of her and so I decided I better stand up to her and stand up for Amelia. She usually backs down when somebody stands up to her and tells it like it is.
Mom- I'm glad you told her to stop. I sorta get it I guess. She's trying to make her friend, MaryAna, feel better. I guess she doesn't want her friend to feel sad because you have a girlfriend. But saying she's gonna KILL her is NOT ok. Neither is being mean to her.
(all is quiet for about 2 minutes.)
Finn- So I found out there's this "hot list". Supposed to be a list of hot guys.
Mom- So are you on it?
Mom- Well, we have always known you are quite handsome.
Finn- Yeah. Yeah we have.
A couple weeks ago, I ran upstairs...talking to myself the whole way...
Me- "Dear Lord,
Please let Maddy score today. I know I'm not supposed to pray that way. I know, I know- I should pray for guidance and wisdom and stuff like that. Maybe pray that she have a good game and trust in her ability to make the choices she needs to make today, etc. I know. But it sure would be nice for her to score. It's time. She's worked hard, she's dedicated, she's fierce. So a score would be really nice."
Finn- You're not supposed to pray that way? OH yeah. It doesn't work AT ALL. You can't just pray for things you want. I know cause I prayed for YEARS to be a super hero....and NUTTIN.
(side note- She scored in the last 2 minutes of the game that day! :)
Stella- I want another Mother.
Mom- Really? Do you mean you want two? Or someone different?
Stella- Someone different. NOT YOU.
Mom- How come?
Mom- Do you think a different Mother would be better for ya?
Stella- Yes. I want a new mother that doesn't make me wash or brush my hair.
Mom- Ah. I see.
Stella- You do??
Mom- Yes. But you're not getting a new one. You're stuck with me forever.
Stella- That's what I was afraid of.
Maddy came home from school the other day...
Slams door open (CRASH). Slams backpack down. (BAM)
Hair on side of her head in a messy bun, t-shirt, leggings, socks, tennis shoes (looking cute as ever and just like Maddy)
"MOM!! I GET TO PLAY POWDER PUFF FOOTBALL IN KEY CLUB!!!! WOOOHOOOO!!!!!"
(and proceeds to do a little celebration dance up the stairs.)
Maddy- I had my World History midterm today.
Me- How was it?
Maddy- Well I studied for like hours and like none of the stuff I studied was even on the test!
Me- Oh no. Not good??
Maddy- Oh, please. It was really easy. I'm just totally irritated that I wasted all that time studying.
