Email I wanted to share

My sister Becky sent me this and I thought it was pretty good so I thought I'd share. It's not about Katie, but I can picture some of this coming out of her mouth. My favorite is James.

JACK (age 3) was watching his Mom breast-feeding his new baby sister.
After a while he asked: "Mom why have you got two? Is one for hot and
one for cold milk?"

MELANIE (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied she
was so old she didn't remember any more. Melanie said, "If you don't
remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to six."

STEVEN (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom goodnight. "I love you so
much, that when you die I'm going to bury you outside my bedroom window."

BRITTANY (age 4) had an earache and wanted a painkiller. She tried in
vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her Mom
explained it was a childproof cap and she'd have to open it for her. Eyes
wide with wonder, the little girl asked: "How does it know it's me?

SUSAN (age 4) was drinking juice when she got the hiccups. "Please
don't give me this juice again," she said, "It makes my teeth cough."

D I (age 4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: "How much do I

MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and
kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his
dad: "Why is he whispering in her mouth?"

CLINTON (age 5) was in his bedroom looking worried. When his Mom asked
what was troubling him, he replied, "I don't know what'll happen with this
bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in?"

JAMES (age 4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: "The man
named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but his wife
looked back and was turned to salt." Concerned, James asked: "What
happened to the flea?"

TAMMY (age 4) was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather
wrinkled woman her Mom knew. Tammy looked at her for awhile and then asked,
"Why doesn't your skin fit your face?"

The Sermon I think this Mom will never forget.... this particular
Sunday sermon..."Dear Lord," the minister began, with arms extended toward
heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. "Without you, we are but
dust." He would have continued but at that moment my very obedient daughter
(who was listening!) Leaned over to me and asked quite audibly in her
shrill little girl voice, "Mom, what is butt dust?"

Some of these are beyond compare... "the flea." "How does it know it's me?" "butt dust." Some children are sharper than others.

butt dust...i STILL love that one! i had that on my blog about 6 or 8 months ago, but it's always good to read it!

BlackGirl said...

The flea and butt dust one kill me...lol.

Christine said...

ROFL. I just loved this and I believe a kid said each one of those things. Some of the stuff Anna comes out with I could kick myself for not having the video on her at all times.

Huw said...

I once earnestly told my grandmother I loved her, even though she had a moustache.

It was last week.

No, not really. I was six.

Oh, too wonderful! I love "kid speak."

But butt dust just cracked me up. (No pun intended. whoops.)

I came over when I saw your comment on Kimmyk's blog, and had to check out the "other Mary". Now I'm laughing till my stomach hurts about the "butt dust"!

Years ago, a wandering 4-year-old was watching me nurse my youngest at a church function. "Why did you switch sides?" she wanted to know. Being a bit of a smart-ass, I told her that the first side had white milk, and the second had chocolate milk for dessert.

Kid immediately runs to mummy, calling out across the crowded room, "Mommy! Mrs. P has a chocolate booby!"

Serves me right.

I think that Susan and the orange juice is hysterical but Katie gets to wear the princess crown on that one. I love children's minds.
