Kids Say and Do the Darndest things!

Well I had to post this 1st and then I'll post about the Christmas festivities later. Yesterday we were unpacking everything from Christmas and I was cleaning up the kitchen and cooking some dinner. I walked around the counter to find Madilyn coloring with permanent marker on the linoleum. So now we have a big section of the linoleum with Maddie's art work all over it. I guess looking on the bright side of things I finally HAVE to tile so that will be done! Here is a picture:

Good thing she is so darn cute! After trying a magic eraser and lots of cleaner I finally gave up and this is how it ended up looking. Well sometimes the kids make a big mess but sometimes they say the funniest things too...last week the girls were saying some funny things so I wrote them in my journal and then looked back as saw some funny things they have said in the past. So I want to share some:


-12/17/09 (age 5)-Mike's family had the monthly temple worship time where we do family temple sealings and I was unable to go because as a Relief Society Presidency we had to meet with the Stake President before Ward Conference. When Katelyn's uncles and aunt asked where I was she goes, "My mommy couldn't be here because she has a meeting with the Prophet. She is very important!"

-2/08 (age 3)-We were at a friends house and in their bathroom they had a small garbage can that looked just like our larger one in our kitchen. When Katelyn saw it she said, "Look Mommy, a baby trash can!"

-11/11/07 (age 3)-I was driving on I-15 one day and this lady didn't check her blind spot and almost side-swiped me. I had to slam on my brakes and swerve so she wouldn't hit me. I honked my horn and yelled, "You stupid lady, check your blind spot! You idiot!" 2 seconds later Katelyn yells, "You almost broke my car you stupid lady!" I realized I better watch what I say.

-2/4/07 (age 2)-We were in the car and I was talking to Mike. Katelyn kept saying, "Mom, Mom, Mom!" I didn't answer her right away so she yelled, "MOM!" I yelled back, "WHAT?" and she goes, "Hee-haw! Hee-haw!" and started laughing. So funny!

-2/15/07 (age 2)-Katelyn calls marshmellows, snowmen. There was a 1/4 moon out and Katelyn goes, "Oh no Mom! The moon is broken!" I assured her it was just fine and that we could only see part of it.

-9/22/06 (age 2)-She called breakfast, bep-burr and socks, gee-gocks. When she would get dressed in the morning she'd say, "Mommy gee-gocks?"


-12/17/09 (age 4)-She was at the store with her uncles and aunt and they let the girls pick out a treat. Katelyn was taking a long time to choose which treat she wanted. Mayli puts her hands on her hips and goes, "Seriously Katy, you're taking FOREVER, just choose something!"

-11/30/09 (age 3)-We were at the store and when we got out of the van the air smellled stinky. Mayli said, "Ewww! It's stinky out here, maybe it's cows. Cows stink and so do Daddys."

-9/09 (age 3)-Mayli had fallen and scraped her knees outside on the sidewalk. She said, "Mommy I'm missing a piece of my leg, do you have any glue?" I said, "Glue?" She said, "Yes, the glue you put on Katy's stiches." I said, "Oh you mean the neosporin?" She said, "Yes mom, the evil sporin, I need evil sporin!"

-5/08 (age 2)-We were up in Rexburg and we were showing the girls the temple there. Mayli says, "Hey Mom, can I get married?" I said, "Sure you can someday." She clasped her hands together and goes, "Oooooh, that will be so fun!"

-2/9/08 (age 2)-We were on our way home from Mike's parents house and Mayli pipes up from the back of van, "People are going to my house!" I said, "What?" And she said the same thing again...she was just sure all the people that were driving by us were going to our house. I told her they were going the same way as us and using the same road but they weren't coming to our house. She said, "Oh, ok!" She was happy that they all weren't coming to our house.

-6/6/07 (age 1)-peas (please), manamal (animal), tank ooo (thank you)


12/09 (age 1)-We were in Walmart and Katelyn and Mayli were fighting. I said, "Quit it!" and Maddie goes, "Ow, quit it!" (A quote from the Simpsons I think is funny and will sometimes say).

10/09 (age 1)-hank ooo (thank you), I sorry, ove ooo (love you), peas (please), puppy

Just thought I'd share some stuff that makes me laugh! Hope it made you smile and laugh too!

All markers, tape, glue and scissors are in a box now, and can only be used with "supervision" I'm glad to see it's not just my house. I have a things they say/do notebook, I'll have to do this someday. Fun idea :)

Summer said...

What a FABULOUS thing to post. Great, great idea... Sorry about the linoleum, but if you get tile out of it soon, I might have to "accidentally" leave out a magic marker for the kids to go for it on ours! (Obviously, just kidding... kind of).

Hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Christmas!
