Some Kid Funnies . . .

Haven't done this in awhile, lets see . . .

  • A slightly PG rated funny . . . a couple weeks ago we talked about where babies come from and such as part of our science/anatomy (which was really the whole reason I chose to do an anatomy unit right now, to fit in some prep for the upcoming homebirth). This included a brief, age appropriate, discussion about male/female anatomy. When we talked about it during school time, A mentioned that she thought the male "thing you pee from" (I did tell her the proper name, she didn't bother to retain that information, I don't see a need to reiterate it if she's not interested at this point), would be "annoying" and she's glad she's a girl and doesn't have one. Which I found amusing enough, but nothing compared to the following Sabbath morning as we were getting ready to leave for church. I'm not sure what made her think of it then, but totally out of the blue, she said "hey Daddy, you know that little thing you pee out of because you're a boy? Isn't that ANNOYING? I think it would be annoying!" the look on DH's face was beyond priceless, I was dying laughing.
  • This morning the girls were getting Papa to tell them stories "about when he was a little kid" somewhere in all the story telling he told them about his great-uncle who had to have a finger removed due to cancer. A was very interested in this and wanted to see what he looked like with 3 fingers. Since Papa didn't think he has any pictures of Uncle Bill with 3 fingers, A decided that we should go to where he's buried and dig him up so she could see his 3 fingers. I suggested there wouldn't be much to see anymore (should've known better), which brought the inevitable "why?" I said because when people are buried their bodies start turning back into dirt. "What do you mean BACK into dirt?" So I asked them what Adam was made out of, "mud" So since we call come from Adam, when we die we turn back into dirt. . . at which point they drew the logical conclusion that since WE (as in females) were made from a rib, NOT dirt, we must turn back into a rib once we die. LOL. There IS a certain logic to that . . . And at least I know they've been listening to the details of the creation story LOL.
  • The girls got their birthday coupons for a free kids meal at California Pizza Kitchen, so we "had" to go eat there. The coupons included a dessert and both girls chose the ice cream sundae. It was a LARGE Sundae for a little kid, they were in heaven. As they were eating it, dh, who was sitting next to L, told L to "look over there" and promptly swiped a bite of ice cream (no, he doesn't LIKE ice cream, he just wanted to tease her). She thought it was HILLARIOUS and the rest of the meal was spent trying to get each of us to "look" (even if we didn't have anything to swipe) and making sure they (girls) didn't get " caught" again. L figured out to satisfy her curiosity AND protect her food by, when Daddy said "hey look over there" FIRST putting her hand on Daddy's arm, and THEN looking to be sure there wasn't anything to look at LOL.

That first one was a SCREAM! Kids are so funny! Since my daughter has a little brother so she hasn't "forgotten" what "its" called but I would imagine if she had a little sister she wouldn't remember either. What I've always found amazing is the early facination little boys have with it!!
