The absolutely wonderful snow that came today! I laughed and danced and played in it with the kids. It was amazing!

Sunchimes 01-31-2012 07:04 AM

These didn't happen today, because I have the miraculous mid-week day off.happyface But they are funny and since I have nothing to do today but cleaning, sanitizing, taxes, laundry, and cooking, I'll write them.

I have this baby toy that plays music while the Pooh characters scroll across the screen. Since dcg#1 was an infant, I've identified the characters and made Piglet sounds and Pooh sentences and buzzy bee noises. When Tigger shows up, I tell them that Tigger bounces, and I make bouncy movements. (Thank goodness you guys understand-I couldn't admit that to just anyone!) Now, they all know the characters and what they do-they make buzzy noises and quack and squeak at the characters. If I'm playing with one of the kids, when I say "Here comes Tigger" the other kids playing around the room will pause and bounce for a second then go back to what they are doing.

I like the idea of teaching the kids an instance response when I say Stop, in case of emergency. I really haven't purposely done much about it, but it seems they have learned it anyway. I have 2 day care cats (another whole post!). Now and then, being cats, they do things they shouldn't-the current favorite being scratching the pnp. I saw one starting to claw and yelled "Stop that". I noticed that as soon as I said "Stop", all 3 girls froze. This is a good thing. But, I don't want to wear it out, so I have to remember to say, "Cat, stop that."

When things get too quiet around here and everyone is sort of lethargic, I put on some good old 50's rock n roll. Real fun is watching a toddler trying to do Hand Jive with you.

Countrygal 02-01-2012 12:34 PM

OK, it really wasn't that funny, but I have two kids who don't like MARSHMALLOWS!!!! I have to chuckle every time I think about it. It's like one of our favorite unhealthy snacks!

There goes making our own, I guess..... :p

karen 02-02-2012 11:06 AM

Today I couldn't take the kids out so I took out balls...I have a small ball pool for the days that we can't go out it's filled with those plastic colored balls. The kids were having fun throwing and catching the balls but as we know things can quickly get out of control so it did they started running around and jumping on each other...So I yell "That's it everyone sit down on the carpet and play with your balls" I can only imagine what the neighbors must think or if someone happened to be walking by my house at that time. Oh yes let me not forget the best detail of all somehow I have ended up with 6 boys!!!!!!! :D:D

sahm2three 02-02-2012 11:24 AM

One of my little dcb's who is almost 2 has started saying, "Awwwww man!" and when he does it, his face is perfect and he almost has a southern drawl. SO STINKING CUTE!!!! I just love him! lovethis

AmyLeigh 02-06-2012 01:07 PM

Have new drop in today, laying down in a semi-dark room, trying to nap. The older boys were playing, making too much noise, so I told them that the next one who makes noise was going to have to lay down like J was. They all said, OK, and went and laid down!! So much for being too old to nap, huh?

Camel-lope
 
I made butternut squash today for lunch and my pickiest eater said "oh yum camel-lope (cantelope)". Dcg shoves it in her mouth. "OMG, why did you cook the camel-lope?!?" Dcb quickly responds "who cares you weren't going to eat it anyway!" :lol:

SilverSabre25 02-10-2012 09:22 AM

Me, after being told by DCG that DCB had hit her with a block: "DCB, DCG says that you hit her with a block."

DCB: indignantly, "But....but I hit her with the drum, not the block!"

He was then surprised when he got in trouble.

Goober.

Countrygal 02-10-2012 01:39 PM

Just finished baking the banana bread we are giving for Valentine's gift:

GS: Grandma, where is my gum?????

:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

Maybe we'll SLICE the bread before we give it out....... :cool:

Country Kids 02-10-2012 01:39 PM

Ok this is from my own son!

Mom, why doesn't igloo's melt when the eskimos build a fire in them?
Me-well, there is usually a whole in the top but it probably get hot so I'm not sure why it doesn't melt. Thinking to myself, now I have to look it up because its going to kill me till I get the answer!

Then-Mom I just saw a picture on the computor of a baby husky. Next to it was the caption-I'm not fat, I'm just a little husky-:lol::lol::lol:

By the way my son is 15 and he always has been so curious of the outdoors. I'm sure if we had snow we would be building a igloo and testing the fire theory.

He must have known it was going to be a tough day because he brought a smile to my face both times-:)

DCB will be 4 in less than a month. Shortly after drop-off today he looks at me and says: "I'm gonna have a girl baby soon in mommy's tummy. Her name is gonna be Rollie because I like that name."

Part of me wonders if he knows something I don't. :confused:

The younger brother will be a year in a little over a month. I know mom wants a girl, but I think she'd tell me if there was news. She told me right after she found out with #2 because she was so excited and couldn't keep a secret. ;)

AmyLeigh 02-15-2012 02:59 PM

I have one dcb who says the funniest things. Last week he told me dh and I need a night away from the kids. Cracked me up. Today he gets on a swing and asks, does this make my butt look big?
He always makes us laugh.

sahm2three 02-16-2012 09:13 AM

We had one of our littles diagnosed with RSV, so I spent all night sanitizing everything thoroughly again, and put some of the little toys away. We got a couple new toys, one being a big playhouse (not huge, but for the littles it is pretty big, one of those plastic playskool ones), and when the kids came in they were so excited! They were squealing and laughing. Then, one of the little dcb's came over to me and hugged me and said, "Thank you! You really love us! I love you too!" lovethis Days like this make me love my job! lovethis

vocab practice
 
Testing a SA boy (4th grade) on his vocubalary for the upcoming test. He is trying to rush through so he can join the others playing. I ask him what "surfaced" means. His response "one who masters surfing". Hahaha

Michelle 02-17-2012 01:57 PM

On the way home from dance class today

"Molly" says to "Sally" ...."Hey Sally"..

Sally- "what?"

Molly- "Are you awake?'

Sally- "umm yea"

Molly- "oh"

MrsB 02-22-2012 08:38 AM

DCG turns 3 today! I ask her "so how does it feel to be 3 now" using a wii remote controller as a microphone. :Sunny::Sunny:

She doesnt skip a beat, "well my mom and I talked about it and now that I am 3, I dont need a nap anymore!!"

:eek:Uhhh, is it mom or daughter trying to pull a fast one on me!happyfacehappyface

SD DaycareMOM 02-23-2012 07:11 AM

Two of my dck and my ds this morning were trying to say "Holy guacamole!," but instead kept saying, "holy crack-a-mol-ee!" Made me laugh out loud. :lol:

AmyLeigh 02-23-2012 03:20 PM

4 yo dcb "Y" was watching me season the turkey we are going to have for dinner.

y: Hey, look at the big chicken!

Me: It's a turkey, Y, not a chicken

Y: Someone killed a turkey?!?!

Me: Uhhhh...yeah....

Y: Cool, someone killed a turkey!

Me: :eek:

Cat Herder 02-28-2012 11:21 AM

I debated which thread to put this in. :confused:

For me it is a VENT....grrr....:mad:

BUT I think, for you guys, it will be funny.....:p I may even think so, tomorrow. :cool:

I spent HOURS going through cabinets, sorting, getting the spring curriculum together and rearranging to put the linens behind lock and key. (the DCK's are in a peeling phase, "Safety First" products CANNOT keep up)

I whip through lunch, get everyone cleaned up from outside and start getting ready for nap...then it hits me.

Where is the key?????????:eek: Somewhere between here and the playground, I presume. :rolleyes:

Yep, diapers, wipes, blankets, mats, sheets.... EVERYTHING....locked. :mad::mad:

After a brief delay I located a drill/screwdriver bit, took the hinges off the cabinets and got back on track. :o Ugh...two Mondays in a row for me this week.

Msiferllc 03-01-2012 01:27 PM

Funny
 
My 2.5 year old was doing laundry with my wife, and noticed the cat box needed cleaned. She turned to my wife and said "I think daddy need to clean lilly poops". Very cute!

I normally wear contacts but wore my glasses today because I have a 4 yr old DCG that just got her own glasses and is having a tough time with them.

I thought I'd wear mine today to show her that it is ok and a lot of people wear glasses.

A 4 yr old DCB came in this morning and said "Whoa, Miss C! You look funny today! Are you still you?" :lol:

Countrygal 03-07-2012 02:22 PM

My dgs was at a friends house (gs is 5 and friends are 4 and 3). On the way home I asked if he had fun and he said YES!, but _____ and _____ really need to learn to pick up their things!!! ROFL!!!!happyface:lol:

GretasLittleFriends 03-07-2012 08:25 PM

DCB (Turned 4 on Monday), DCG almost 4, and DD (almost 2) were crawling around today pretending to be puppies. This is VERY common lately. The light must have been just right today, DCB stops, jumps up, and (very quickly walking) comes over to me.

"Greta, I'm a real puppy, look I'm all fuzzy. I don't want a tail." He, apparently for the first time today, noticed that he has clear fine hair on his arms. I assured him that everybody has hair on their arms. After examining my arms and several other kids' arms, he decided he's still a little boy and won't turn into a dog.

On a side thought, I wonder if he's watched Disney's Pinocchio at home lately...

SilverSabre25 03-12-2012 07:20 AM

Watching Signing Time, one dcg said, "Eew, yucky skunk!" and then dcb ( who loves to argue followed with , "No, yummy skunk!"

Then everyone began declaring, "Yummy ______" for each and every animal :lol:

I have a drop-in 3yr old today. She picks up my etch-a-sketch and starts sliding her finger across the screen. "Mrs B, this thing doesnt work" :Sunny:

I have a mac and an ipod and sometimes when I am on another type of computer, I try to make things bigger on the mouse pad or try touching the screen

Blackcat31 03-13-2012 01:06 PM

I have a 4 yr old DCG who recently got glasses. Her eye Dr is telling her to tell him if her eyes aren't seeing correctly so he can adjust her prescription if necessary so...

Today after rest time she says to me "Miss C, when I was napping today, I couldn't really see that well without my glasses."

I told her that happens to everyone when your eyes are closed. :lol::lol:

So cute.:Sunny::Sunny:

Reminds me of a few of the little ittie bitties I've had over the years. They reach for something, and I tell them no. They close their eyes and reach for it. As in, if I can't see me do it, neither can you.

BigMama 03-14-2012 09:33 AM

As we were getting ready to trek down to the playground this morning, I reminded each child to use the potty. "I don't want to," very newly potty-trained DCG said. "But DCG, there is no potty at the park," I reminded her.
She replied with, "But there is nature!" "Ummmmm...there sure is but we should still go before we leave." She relented and went potty but as soon as we got to the park she asked, "Miss _____, can I pee on the grass?" :lol:

Sunchimes 03-14-2012 07:50 PM

My 19 mo old dcg came back this week after being gone since mid-December. Her mom said that she had started telling her when she had to go potty by saying "pa" or "paw paw". I was skeptical, but I agreed to try it out if I happened to notice. Actually, I took her 4 times the first day and she went once. The other times seem to have been ploys to get out of the play room and explore. :D

Anyway, when I flushed, she stood by the toilet and waved saying "Bye bye".

I was telling her mom and she said that she taught her that. Her niece was upset to see the toilet flush her efforts, so she decided to avoid that by making it a "bye bye" occasion. :lol:

Two DCK's (age 3.5 and 4.5) are playing in the other room.

The older one says: "Stop doing that or you are not coming to my birthday party!"

the younger one says: "I will call your mom and I will come anyways"

older one: "You don't know my number!"

younger one: "Uh huh, its 8, 15, 7"

older one: "Wow, how did you know that?"

:lol: :confused: :lol: :confused: :lol:

A few funny moments today. I think my kids are destined to be comedians when they grow up.

1) Dcg3 is watching me as I feed and burp my newest 4 week old infant his bottle. Infant lets out a big burp and dcg freezes, adopts her :o face, puts both hands over her butt and says, "That didn't sound good!" and bolts to the bathroom. :lol:

2) I change dcg2.5's diaper and send her off on her merry way. She goes up to her friends who are playing with blocks and says, "Hey, guys! My butt smells really good now! Ms. Queen used wipes and everything!". :confused::rolleyes::lol:

3) Dcg 2.5 is counting the stuffed animals in the dramatic play area.

First try: " One, two, three, seven, eleventeen.........."
Second: " One, two, three, seven, eleventeen..........."
Third and final: " One............Mary had a little lamb, little lamb...."

Gotta love short attention spans.

mema 03-28-2012 09:06 AM

Dcg 3 was watching the eagles. She started to talk about how big they were and that the wings are bigger than her arms and their tails are bigger than her tushy too! :lol:

After dyeing eggs today, a little boy says, "Wow, thanks Mrs. Blair. That was a GREAT idea!"

Sunchimes 04-10-2012 01:27 PM

One of the girls ((19 mo) favorite signs is bird. I don't know why they love it so, but at the least hint of a bird (movement outside, a picture, a noise) those little fingers are in front of their mouth clapping while they say "Bird!" Well, actually it's more like "bud". (The sign is the thumb and first finger held in front of the mouth and sort of pinching like a bird's beak.)

Yesterday, we were watching the birds in the yard and I asked dcg to show me the sign for bird. She looked at me a minute, then tucked her little hands in her armpits and starting flapping her elbows, saying "Bud". I almost fell out of my chair laughing.
