A little funny from this evening....

My BIL and SIL were visiting this evening with my 2yo nephew. They're very much into identifying colors and numbers and stuff right now, so my BIL was playing with my nephew and dog and asking him what the dog's name was.

BIL: What's his name, Aiden?
Aiden: Mu-ki (Mudkips)
BIL: MUD-KIPS
Aiden: Mu-ki
BIL: MUD-KIPS
Aiden: Mu-Ki
BIL: No, MUD-KIPS, say it, Aiden, MUD-KIPS
Aiden: Dog

We giggled for bit. It's one to get around that troublesome pronunciation ;D

I remember having a *very* entertaining Passover dinner with my relatives once when LittlePenguin was about 2.  We would ask her to pronounce things like "matzoh" and "Manishevitz" (sp?) and "gefilte fish."  She got really into it and would shout the words happily when we asked her to.

ToddlerPenguin is just too sophisticated.  She won't pronounce *anything* you ask her to, or even repeat words when you tell her what something is.  She'll say things in her own good time, and that's it.  Bah.

At least BabyPenguin still squeaks on command.

"Daddy, want to eat lots and lots and go round and round and round very fast and go *bleah* [include hand motion and great sound effect here] and have vomit come out of mouth and go all over floor and mommy clean it up?"

(I think this is a result of Babybartfast wanting DH to twirl her around right after dinner and DH trying to explain it will make them both sick if he tries . . .)

When I was 4 years old, there was this TV show that had a special episode in Acapulco.

My grandparents owned a condo at a local beach.

One day I said: "This Sunday, I do not want to go to Anvil Beach. I want to go to Acapulco!".

And then my folks enlightened me that Acapulco was in Mexico!!!

And I have yet to go to Acapulco- only Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum in Mexico.
I have pet mice!

Last night my 2YO was sitting on my lap, and he stuck his hand down my shirt and said, "I got you boobs!" I told him to stop it, and he grabbed my shirt and said, "Gimme those boobs!" and started killing himself laughing. I can see where this might be a problem when he gets older.  ;D
Everybody in this family needs to just calm down and eat some fruit or something.

My wife worked in an after school facility for a little while and had a child of about 9 do that a couple times.  He'd touch her and then say "I touched your boob."  She talked to the parents and all that stuff.

After she told me that sotry I still have to do it every once in a while.

My DD was telling me how she split up with her boyfriend! (Boyfriend! She's 9. :o)

Apparently she sat him down and broke it to him gently. 'We have to break up. It's not me, it's you.'
I asked if that shouldn't be the other way round. She replied 'But it is his fault. He's a jerk. He doesn't understand the offside rule and thinks rugby is rubbish.'

I'm glad she has such high standards (I think)! ;D

Yeah, he's obviously not good enough for your daughter.

I, for one, find her breakup style refreshingly straightforward. She could give lessons.  ;D

DD's teacher had them all write out a nice thing that they liked about each other (anonymously).

Her classmates said some lovely things about DD.
'You have beautiful hair'
'You are funny'
'You play with me and make me feel not left out' etc  ;D

Two gems:
'You have many times brung the happiness'
and
'You can burp ABC'  ::)

We were having a dinner meal one night of a style we like to call "FFY" - or "fend for yourself".
A wide assortment of leftovers were on the counter.

DS walked up to the leftovers, raised his hands a-la Moses and boomed out "Make me..a sandwich!"

Yeah. Didn't work.
He still had to make his own supper. :)

One of my cousins started calling the disposal garberator (garbage eater)

Sis it snowed in Houston I was 5 or 6 so she was 3 -Mommy this nasty stuff keeps falling out of the sky on my coat.

 I'm driving with both Loren and Brett in back. This idiot decides he is going to slide across a very crowded I10. I have to slam on the brakes to avoid him hitting me. Me are you all ok. Loren Yes he's a bad driver. Brett Daddy should have driven Dad drives fast. (yes he drives very fast)

The natural place for a farmer to store his hay is in a halo, right?  (I didn't get "halo" and "silo" straight for a very long time - and I lived in a rural enough part of the country that I saw a LOT of "halos" on a regular basis.)

My young son watching me fix the baby's bottle of formula:
Son, looking puzzled:  What's that?
Me:  Formula
Son, brightening: For ME la?
Me:  No. Form U la.
Son hopefully:  For ME la? 
Me:  No.  Form U la.
I forget how long this went on, but I'm sure I let it go on and on because it was so funny.

I was in the kitchen and asked someone to close the window above the sink, because, "There's a draft coming in".  My three year old daughter literally climbed up me and clung to my neck crying hysterically because she thought I said 'graiffe', not 'draft'.

I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

We live right by a zoo - our bedroom window overlooks the back grounds, and we see giraffes every time we go over a bridge to get home. We've hand-fed them Romaine lettuce (the keeper gave it to us with permission), so we have a great fondness for them.

And a second-story window they're welcome to stick their heads in should they ever want to visit.
