This Monday has arrived like the plague. It doesn't help that it was still pitch dark when I headed off to drop the boys at school. We all need to get up and going with our work week though and that of course, is where Monday Mojo comes in. Each Monday, those of us over at Eclectic Six provide a writing prompt blog hop, where anyone is free to join in and link up. This week's topic is: The Funniest Things Your Kids Have Ever Said or Done. Since I have a lot of them, I am just going to share a few of the most recent ones.
Jase is my youngest and is more prone to funny outbursts than the rest. He is a real ham, although some of the funniest things he does are completely inadvertent. Like the other day in the store Jase was saying "Here pussy, pussy, pussy." Now, for those who don't know, they still call cats on old cartoons pussy cats or pussy's. Of course, this didn't go over too well with the older women standing near us. I explained that we need to just say "cats" from now on.
Okay, this isn't recent, but when Joshua was about 3 and Jordan was 2, my mom and I were out cooking in her kitchen, which is right off the living room. The boys were giggling and we went around the corner to see what was so funny. It turns out, Joshua had dumped the bucket of ashes from the fireplace all over Jordan's head and the rest of the living room. It was a huge mess, but the fact that they were laughing and having such a great time made it hard to be mad.
The other day I was painting the entertainment center an this is a conversation I had with Jordan.
Jordan: "Mommy, have you ever wished you were a black person."
Me: "I don't know Jordan. Why?"
Jordan: "Because I wish I was one."
Me: "Why is that?"
Jordan: "So I could get my ear pierced."
Me: "You do know white people can get their ears pierced too. Right?"
Jordan: "Yes, but it looks cooler if you are black."
I can't think of anything funny that Jayden has said recently, but if I do, I will add it. Blame it on my pregnancy brain. Want to join in the fun, head over and link your Monday Mojo post up!
