These are great! Keep 'em coming!

GH's twix story and singular/plural confusion reminded me of something else Morgan said once. We were getting ready to go visit grandparents and she asked "Mom can I wear my new clo?" Clo??? It took me a few to figure it out. She had gotten a new shirt that day and I guess since it was the only new part it was a clo, the singular form of clothes

Having already raised two strapping boys, makes me glad we're now empty nesters! But oh, I remember the "Good 'Ol Days" of embarrasing comments! One time, standing in line at a craft store/nursery, it was obvious that someone in line let out a really stinky cloud of "wind".... The oldest crinkled his nose and loudly exclaimed, "Mom! Something stinks!! What's that awful smell?!" I don't remember exactly, but I think I tried to smooth it over with, "Oh, you never know honey", or something lame as I truly believe it was the person directly behind me! Or, how about the time when the youngest shouted out in the grocery store, "Mom, that lady's fat!!!" These are the moments that leave us with stuttered tongues and red cheeks.... Ahhh, youth! :)

when I was a baby, my babysitter was often my mom's very best friend, named Charlotte . I could not say "charlotte", so called her "Caca". (which is Spanish for #2). You can imagine her distress, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, when I would shout out in public my loud calls to her , "Caaaa caaaa! Where are you?" Caa caa!"

I think the true kids stories are the best!! I have more I will share... but not tonight. Have to head off to bed. Granddaughters are spending the night and I have to get up early to get ready to head out for a ride. Can't wait to come back here and read some more of our wonderful, funny children!

Oh these are great!! Glad E is older but I miss the funny stuff!

I have a similar story Lockwood,
We live out too and drive over an hour to the grocery store in Fayetteville. It's one of the windiest most dangerous hwy's in the country. E was about 18 months and we were heading to the store and meet for dinner with my parents. Going around a corner I got run off the road by a logging truck, barely missed a culvert and screamed out "Oh Sh!t!!!!!!". Those were her first real words.

I went out to feed one evening and left DH in charge of the kid (1 1/2), usually I took her with me but it was raining. We were living down by the river in our cabin, 1 room, about 450 sq. Ft. Not including a loft as big as our bed where DH & I slept, E's bed was under the ladder in the kitchen. Oh good times!!!
So I'm out for all of 2 mins and go back in to get a rain jacket. Did the Mom scan and INSTANTLY knew the kid was GONE! DH started looking for her and ran out the door, I looked up to my right and low and behold that kid had climbed a 15ft. Ladder and was standing on the edge of the loft!!!!!!!
Another Oh sh!t moment. How on earth do you loose ONE kid in ONE room?

I went to visit my Mom and left the kid and DH at home. (I know, should have known better right?) I got a call 5 mins after I walked in parents door, DH was screaming bloody murder:
"HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DOOOOOO!!!!! HELP ME HELP MEEEEEEE!!!!! OH MY GOSH!!!!!"
I started shaking and asked as calmly as I could "Is there blood?"
"NOOOO NOOOOOOOO!" he screamed "It's alll OVER, HELP MEEEEE!!!!"
I asked "What's all over dear?"
"YOUR MARKERS!!!!" "SHE'S COVERED AND I CAN'T GET IT OFFFFFF!!!!!!"
LOL!!
DH had spaced out on the computer and thought E was coloring next to him with crayons... Oh noooo, she was coloring HERSELF with my permanent art markers. Her body was SOLID purple, brown, black, green, and her face had brown swirls and patches ALL OVER. Didn't come off for a WEEK.

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!

One more.

Mom took E and my Grandma to Eureka for an outing. She was little little. They were talking about PaPa not knowing how to really fix anything and in frustration Grama hollers "For Heavens Sake, it only took one SCREW!"

The rest of the day all over town E screamed at the top of her lungs: SKA REWWWWWW! SKA REWWWWWWWW!

I have a 5 year old daughter that cracks me up daily. One of the cutest things I've heard come out of her mouth recently was a couple of days ago. I watch a 3 month old baby girl during the day and my girls love to help as much as they can. So they're sitting next to the baby in her little bouncy seat and I tell them "You should talk to her, she really likes that". My 5 year old says "Uhhh ok" looks down at the baby and says "Soooo, do you like giraffes or something?". I busted up laughing as my other daughter tells her "Not like that, like baby talk".

I thought this was a really cute and pretty spot on diagram of what takes place in my bed every night with my 3 year old son. Sorry, the picture seems like it came out really small, but hopefully people can read it. If not, the pictures are pretty self explanatory.

#6 was hilarious Whisper!

First time E had cough syrup, age 4.

And well, I just don't know about her sometimes, this kind of freaked us out! She just stood there.

Love the real stories and pics. This is fun

Fly, that last pic is hilarious! Did she put down her poor stick horse to make a hat? LOL

Here's a few funny pics. There is the time she put "lipstick" on - her lipstick was a red marker. Yikes!

Then there was the time she cut her own hair a week before we went on vacation

And my favorite picture ever, she was supposed to be playing IN the washrack but instead sprayed the water in the barn aisle and made a mud pit while I was riding in the indoor. This is her in truest form!
