Because it's Monday and I'm still exhausted from the long weekend, I thought I'd relate a little story about two kids overheard speaking to one another. I don't remember where I read this but I thought it was hilarious.
(Overheard in McDonalds)
Two little boys, approximately 4 or 5 years old, spy each other in line. Their mothers are holding their respective hands, staring straight ahead at the menu board with that dispassionate glazed look -- like they're pumping gas, or waiting for a dog to do its business.
Little boy #1: Hey! You get McDonald's for breakfast too!
Little boy #2: Yeah! I'm getting pancakes! I thought I was never going to get pancakes again.
Little boy #1: How come? Your mom doesn't make pancakes at home?
Little boy #2: No. I only get them here. And I didn't think I was ever going to taste them ever again.
Little boy #1: How come?
Little boy #2: Because after my little brother's birthday party, my Mom said she'd rather take it up the ass than eat here anymore.
(Postscript: The little boy, as he was being led back to a booth by his hysterically laughing mother, was heard fussing, "BUT I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!""
I've always been a big fan of hearing the innocent little jewels that come out of a kid's mouth. And I can't wait until the Peanut starts speaking so we can have some fun conversations together. BossLady and I always say that the one thing we surely won't have to worry about with the Peanut is any lack of personality. With two geeky weirdos as parents, that's a pretty safe bet.
So meanwhile, I'll count on all of YOU to tell me your funny stories. So tell me...
What's the funniest thing you've ever heard your kid say?
