Kids Say the “Darndest” Things

I actually had to get to a meeting this morning at 8:30 a.m. I know whoa is me! Since I work from home, I know I have it made in the morning. Trying to just get Sydney and Jason out the door is one thing, but me, too! OMG! It's about an extra hour. So, the first funny thing is I need to walk out the door and all of a sudden everyone has to go to the bathroom. Really? Sydney needs me (and it's not #1 for the record), Jason is upstairs and can't help her. I am in a sweater that is so hot, I think I am going to pass out. It's only 7:45 a.m. What the heck does this day have in store for me?

Well, I made it out the door, get in the car and start driving through the rain. This time of year, I listen to the holiday music on the radio. But, of course, it's drive time and the morning show is on. They are hosting kids on the air to ask them questions about Christmas. Pretty funny. One girl says she is sure that reindeer eat oatmeal with sparkles in it. Of course, the DJ thinks that is great and goes on to say that it gives Rudolph the "runs." Get it? I know, silly. But, anyway, it gets me thinking about some of the funniest things that kids say. Whoever came up with the card line that has kids sayings on them should be a millionaire by now. In light of that, I thought I would share some of Sydney's latest musings. Of course, just imagine a 3-year-old saying them and they get funnier. Not too long ago I started trying to write them down. I haven't done such a great job of it (here comes the guilt), well, because they never happen at an opportune time (driving the car, sitting on the potty, etc.). So, I'll try to keep them coming when I remember them. I also encourage you all to add your kids' funny sayings here. I think we will all get a kick out of them and all probably need a good belly laugh this time of year. Hang in there everyone!

"Mommy, are those your jammies?" – Sydney to me as I get her in the car standing in the driveway in my PJs with boots on, lovely scene.

"I want to see your boobies." – Really, we're starting this already.

"What the heck?" – Jack G. and Sydney's favorite thing to say with passion when they don't know what is going on.

"No, ma'am, Maddy." – Sydney yelling at our dog who is coming over to be next to Sydney since Sydney called her over, hello?!

"No, mommy, Maddy's your friend." – Talking about Maddy, the new dog, a few months ago when Sydney wanted nothing to do with the dog. It nailed it to because I was the dog's only friend and still wanted to give her backJ

And my favorite for the last year or so…"I want my daddy!" cries Sydney and I say back, "I want your daddy, too!"

P.S. I don't think darndest is really a word, but it sounded so good!

  1. Cute Shelly,
    You don't know how many times we've been headed out the door to go somewhere, (usually running late) and the boys had to go to the bathroom!
    Cute pics btw! & OMG, I was looking at that pic of Sydney, and thinking...I didn't know they had a desk just like mine...just realized that's at my house.
