My Weekly Crack-Up

Time for What I Learned This Week.... hosted by Musings of a Housewife!

Some of my most amusing times are listening to my two girls discussing something with each other. At 8 1/2 and 11 years old, their conversation is always peppered with interesting tidbits. Ususally it comes from 8 year old Clara, who is always making me laugh. This week I've got two new phrases, courtesy of Clara.

Scene one: Emma and Clara, arguing in the back of the van. I guess they couldn't keep their hands to themselves (WHEN will that end??) and Clara was sick of it. Emma threatened to pinch Clara. Clara, with her fist in the air, proclaimed "Well then, my hand will just go on an adventure to your face!" An adventure?? Ryan and I did everything we could to keep from busting out laughing. Is it ok to laugh out loud at physical threats??

Scene two: Me, Emma, and Clara in the hammock. Clara: "Emma, you're going to be a teenager soon. Now you have training bras, but pretty soon they will get really big and you'll wear cup holders!"

There ya go.... what I learned this week.

So what have YOU learned this week? Have your kids said anything that cracked you up?

So funny. Kids say the craziest things. It's a good thing we have our blogs to document and remind them of what they said. My husband and I crack up all the time...so hard to keep a straight face.

The "adventure to your face" comment is hysterical! Kids do say the best things...it's a true parental challenge to keep a straight face when you're supposed to!

That is too hilarious!
I was having a particularly tough day last week. My daughter was terribly cranky and i was becoming irritated. My 3 year old son picked up on this and said "Mom are you frustrated?" I said "Yes, Meadow won't stop crying." He looked at me and replied "ya and the kitchen is a blinking mess."
Sigh how insightful our children can be.
