Michael is letting me start sticky for funny things we see and hear.

So, what made you laugh today?

Many things made me laugh today; mostly just what comes out of those precious children's mouths when we're having snack and lunch, AND, especially AND, when they had a "marching band" going on with my musical instruments and I was supposed to clap and wave and they are just so darn cute! We had a lovely day. Life is GOOD.

DCB 2.5, who is NOT very verbal, told me his tummy hurt. I asked him if he thought he was going to throw up (I ask even though I know he doesn't answer) and he grinned brightly and said excitedly, "Okay!" and ran off. er...guess you don't know anything about throwing up, kid, lol. I laughed--even though I am now on "vomit watch" with him. He did go on to eat two bowls of cereal for breakfast, so maybe he was just hungry...

My 3 yo DD is into pretending to be other people--right now when she puts on a particular purple dress she's Angelina from Angelina Ballerina. When she's Angelina, I am known as "Angelina Mommy" and DH is "Angelina Daddy." Woe betide you if you forget that she is Angelina and actually call her by her given name!

Yesterday my 3 yo was drawing pictures of thunder. DH corrected her (he is so clueless) by saying, "You mean a thunderstorm?" And she gave him a perfectly withering look and said, exasperated, "No, Daddy--just thunder. BOOM!"

I have two 3 yr old boys who have been "at each other" all week.

This morning while playing with the wafffle blocks the tension started to get a bit elavated and I said, "Boys, why are you guys fighting now?"

One looks up and says, "Because we're friends...."

Ohhhhh, I don't know why I didn't realize that....duh!!

I have been told it's my birthday today so I have been given the little people barn fully stocked with a leapfrog plastic basketball for a birthday present about 6 times so far this morning, all wrapped up in invisible wrapping paper.

Child #2 I want one, too.
Me: It's ok if both of you have babies, people do that all the time
both children smile
Child #2: How about I have a baby in 100 yrs?
Child #1: Yeah, that'll work. You can have a baby in 100 yrs.
Both children happy and content at the agreement!

2 yr old comes over with his hands clasped together.
"Got somefing for ya."
"Oh yea, what is it?" I replied.
As I opened his hands, he smirks and replies with pursed lips "a moochie!"
Followed up with, "Say mank you. That's your manners!"

All 3 kids (ages 2,2,3)found flat pieces of ice outside and pretending the ice pieces were drums. They were all saying "dum ditty dum ditty dum dum dum" from Hand Hand Fingers Thumb. It was so cute and it was hard not to laugh at them so that they would keep it up.

The other day the children were learning about their bones and a plastic little skeleton was hanging on a hook sitting on the table to show our skeleton and bones. And one little boy who is 4 said, "I just don't get what I am seeing here?"

almost 3 yo dcb spotted a little people building that has some steps on the outside. He gasped and declared lovingly (but loudly), "MY 'TEPS!!!" and proceeded to walk a little person up and down the steps for about ten minutes.

My almost 2 yo dcb spent a good ten minutes this morning throwing a toy for my cat to fetch. It was my cat's favorite prey (aside from prey that's actually, you know, alive)--a pompom puff. DCB would throw the puff, the cat would chase it, and dcb would jump up and down and clap with joy that the cat was chasing it.

DCG has been sitting very quietly looking at books. After a few books and swtiching chairs a few times she closes her last book, looks at me, and says "Can I get off my time out now?" I look back at her and try not to laugh as I say, "Honey, you were not on a time out." She looks surprised and said, "oh!"

Now I wonder if she should have been on one.

When I asked my son "Do you want to go potty now or in 1 minute?" and he replied "In lots of minutes"! He hasn't said anything like that before and neither have I, he's 2.7 yrs. I thought it was cute!

We were playing Simon Says today and the boys were all having such a good time and laughing and it was just pure FUN! We took turns letting them decide what Simon would do next. It was a lot of fun, and with how stressful it has been here the last couple weeks, it felt really really good!

PLUS, it is warming up out side and the snow is melting, which means we can play OUTSIDE next week! YIPPEEEEEE!!!!!

A 4 yr old told me yesterday, "kids they grow up fast don't they?"

I said what did you just say and he repeated it like it was nothing. I just laughed.

It's not daycare related, but it sure is cute.

My DD, 3 yo, is going to her cousin's house for a sleepover tonight. She's SO excited about it. Last night she started packing...and picked out about 4 pairs of pants, 6 shirts, 3 pairs of jammies, 4 nighttime diapers, and about 12 pairs of underwear for her 24 hour stay! She was so serious while she was doing it that it was all DH and I could do to keep from laughing. I don't have the heart to try and convince her that she doesn't need all of that stuff...but I am laughing uproariously inside!

She is also helping us paint some rooms today. She has her own little roller (a trim roller, but the perfect size for a 3 yo!) and was painting "robots" and "carnivals" all over the walls. I almost hated to paint over her masterpiece, but I did get a good picture.

My two dcgs came up to me holding hands and the older one said Miss Morgan we discussed it and decided that you should let us watch tunes all day. I had to admire them for working together but it didn't work. They get to watch a cartoon on Friday for 1/2 hour.

My mom told my 2.5yo daughter that the stuff between her toes is "toe jam."(meaning like the lint from your socks.)
Now she is obsessed and takes her socks off and shows everyone that will listen that she has toe jam. Right now she is showing dcb between her toes the invisible "toe jam."

I have such an educational child care huh? hahaha

I like days that start off with two funnies before breakfast!

1. DH has to dress up for work today (Mmm, dress shirt, tie, the works...yummy!) and 3 yo DD just looked at him and announced, "You look like an office man today, Daddy!"

2. 2.75 yo dcb is in big boy underwear for the first time (at daycare) today. I asked him (in a really excited tone), "Hey, dcb, are you wearing big boy underwear today?!" and he grinned the biggest sunniest grin, twisted around so his butt was towards me and pointed at his butt and announced, "THOMAS!!!"

My DCB2 was playing with the Little People when out of the blue, gets up and runs up to me, says 'I'm hungry!', runs to the play kitchen, grabs a plastic drumstick, runs back to me and tries feed it to me then pretends to eat it himself.

My 3 yo DD sat for a long time with the lacing cards, lacing the string through near the top two holes, then leaving a long loop and lacing the other end through the top two holes on the other side near the top--then declared them to be "trophies" and hung them around everyone's neck. I did tell her that you call a trophy around someone's neck a "medal" but it was still super cute. She bowed adorably after bestowing each person's "medal" on them.

DD is wearing a dress today. It's a regular dress (it's also day 5 of 7 that she's worn it, but that's another tale--don't worry, it's been washed...). My almost 3 yo dcb keeps whining about her wearing a "princess" and wanting "princess" of his own--meaning a dress up dress. I keep trying to explain that it's not a dress up dress DD is wearing, but her clothes. He's not buying it. He just pointed at DD and said, "But my turn now!"

The dress up dresses are put away right now though so he's outta luck.

I still think it's funny...just you wait kid until the weather gets nice...I'm pretty sure DD is going to wear almost nothing BUT dresses this year!

Dcg 2 was singing her alphabet "abcdefghijk yellow pee qrstuvwxy and z".
I don't know if that is really what she thinks it is or she heard someone else sing it like that (her older brother maybe?). Either way, it did crack me up.

My DD for a long time said "elmo p..." now the way she pronounces it, it sounds a bit like "emmalo p".

2.75 yo dcb does NOT get the kind of pretend play that my DD is into right now--the kind where she says something like, "Can I have some paint?" and you can hold out your hand and say, "Okay, here you go, here's some paint!" and she "takes" it and "paints" something with it.

So this morning, DD asks DCB to "go get me some vitamins!" and he wanders off into the kitchen with DD shrieking at him, "NO! PRETEND!!!!!" and he just looked confused, so I showed him what she meant, and "gave" him some "vitamins" too. The look on his face as he studied the nothing in his hand, looking back and forth from it to me, was just priceless.

sorry I meant to add this yesterday and forgot....


it's only annoying because I watched part 1 and 2 back to back, and it's the same sound over and over. That's all I meant by annoying. It's cute how they have an entire conversation.

2 boys making noise with the instruments and yelling just to hear themselves yell. They're having fun.

DD, who is in that opinionated stage of the age of 3, yelled at them "STOP!!! I DON"T LIKE THAT NOISE!"

And then they kept right on playing, except instead of just yelling noise, they started yelling, "STOP! STOP! STOP! NOISE! NOISE! NOISE!"

kids are on a beetlejuice kick right now.

They said Beetlejuice, so I said it 2 times and their eyes went wide (because 3rd time he comes right!). They each yell out his name 3 times! So I pretended to be all scared, and said oh no we're in trouble. Who will save us daddy's not home!


Anyways, my youngest (3yo ds) goes potty, yells "mommy wipe my bum" so I go, help him, dump out the potty and clean it, but while the bowls out, he sees a beetle (moisture bug) on the floor under the little potty! He yells "mommy BEETLE BEETLE MOMMMY FOR REAL BEETLE!" he's scared to go in the bathroom now. hahahahahahahha

"You can NOT use the cat as a patient!"--said to my 3 yo who is trying to "doctor" the cat with the doctor tools. She's trying to "take blood", "look down her throat", and put "casts" on her tail. The cat is not amused, but is too stupid/lazy to move her fuzzy butt somewhere else.

Thought my autistic daycare boy was eating his broccoli. Upon taking a closer look I see he is slowly eating all the shredded cheese off each piece then putting them back on his plate. Gotta love the effort!

Finally got a dck to pee on the potty after running him back upstairs every 30 mins. (totally exhausting btw!!) Anyway he peed and I did the silly potty dance and sang our silly potty song he was happy, flushed, washed his hands and dried with a paper towel. I handed him a sticker for his chart and said "great job now when u feel that feeling again let me know so we can run back up here and u can get more stickers and I will sing and dance for u". He said "well ok but i am NOT putting my poop in there!" Put his hands on his hips and struted out of the room with his nose in the air and tp stuck to his shoe!

I was untangling a spool of wire for a project and the dckids were trying to guess what it was for.

Dcg3 asked :"Is that a plugger?"
Me: "What is a plugger?"
Dcg3: "The phone cord that you plug into the hole in the wall?"

My 3 yo DCB made me giggle today. 2 yo DCB had just arrived and was standing off to one side. 3 yo DCB, from across the playroom stared at other DCB for a minute, then came to me holding out a finger and crying, "B hit me, right here on my finger!"

I managed to avoid laughing (but only barely) as I cocked an eyebrow at him and said, "Uh, I don't think so, kid. Nice try. Go play."

The look he gave me could have withered an evergreen...

3yo dcg- (farts in an almost quiet room)
3.5 dcg: "What's that smell?"- with a pointed look directed at the culprit.
2yo dcg (from a few feet away) "Umm, air?" complete with the 'duh' voice.
3.5yo huffs away as the the two remaining friends share a look of understanding.



I love the level of loyalty my daycare children have for eachother.

We have been going outside a lot and most of the kids are pretty self-sufficent about getting jackets, shoes, etc on. I have two 3yo's that have tie shoes, so they have wait for someone to tie them before going out. My dd was helping me out today and everyone had gone out except these two. My dd looked at them and said 'what do you guys need?' They looked at each other then looked at my dd and said in unison:

Velcro.

DCB comes in today whispering insistantly to his mother, "SHE isss....she IS magic. She can do IT! I know she can." Mama tries to shush DCB saying they will go to the store this weekend. I asked, "what's up bud?" to DCB. He turns to me and says, "I'm tellin mama that you're magic and you CAN make me a pilot (prounced PIE-LOT) costume. You bring home favric from the favric store in a bag and take it downstairs. Then when the favric comes back its stuff. I tolds her you have magic playroom curtains and magic pirate and cowboy costumes but she doesn't believe me. I don't know hows you do it but I knows you're magic."



The magic is my sewing machines in the basement which he hasn't seen in about a year since I switched things around so I guess he's forgotten the source of my powers. lol I told him I'd make him a pilot costume this weekend. How can I resist after that endorsement???

Ok, even though it has been so stressful for me here lately, I have to share a kid funny. One of my little 2 yo dcb's says to my 22 mo dcb as they are finishing up breakfast, "X, you suck it!" I hear it, but don't believe it. So I asked him what he said. He says, "X suck it!" I stand there, shocked. ThEN he says, "I fuuust (1st), and X suck it (second)!" OMG! So funny! I about died! This comes from the littles hearing all the big kids saying "I'm 1st" and "I'm second!" when I ask them to wash hands for lunch/snack/breakfast. They are good comedy relief, aren't they?!

DCB (Just turned 3) says "Gawa (He doesn't say Greta) I don't feel good today. I need to go to the eye doctor to get my eyes checked. Then I will get a band-aid and I will feel all better."

Me:" Careful, dcb, the pizza is a little hot. Give it a minute."

DCB: [looks at me, looks at the pizza, grins, pokes the pizza, bursts into tears] "IT'S HOT!!!!!" he screams angrily

Me: "Well, I warned you...and it's not *that* hot...

Other DCB: [looks at his pizza, pokes it, laughs] "Ow!" [pokes it again] "Ow!" [and again] "ow!"

My friend's husband is a police officer. We had him come to talk to the kids the week we learned about community helpers.

He was showing the kids his belt and the stuff he had on it. Gun, handcuffs etc. One little girl loudly announced

"My Mommy keeps HER handcuffs on her bed!"

Ever seen a police officer cry with laughter?!

My DH has a new nickname. Today my newest dcb3 came in and ran up to my DH and said "Good morning, Papa-doodle-do". So cute, we've laughed all day.

That IS cute!! Speaking of nick names, this reminded me about when the DC kids and I were singing the BINGO song and 8yo DCB makes up his own version. My hunny is a red head and my sons nickname is Fredo so they sang
There was a redhead had a boy and Fredo was his name-o
F-R-E-D-O, F-R-E-D-O, F-R-E-D-O and Fredo was his name-o

We had ham sandwiches for lunch today. I have a 4 yo loves buttered bread and a 3 yo loves ham. While I was making mine, they each ate their favorite part and switched plates. Um, sorry guys, that doesn't work.

The two boys were wild beyond belief today. No matter what I said or did, they ran circles around the house, non stop. After the 10th time of stopping them and redirecting their play, I decided it was time to sit in the other room for a few minutes to regroup.

I called them to come because we were going to go sit in the dining room for a few minutes. They both yelled, "Yeah!!!!!!!! We get to go have a time out!" They were both so excited. I wanted 5 mins of silence. They won, I didn't get it.

Default children's honesty ;)

Okay, I burped (a little burp) and teased the kids "oh, so and so, did you burp?". They responded no with a giggle. Then, another child chimes in matter-of-factly "Oh, it's my breath!" and smiles. Now, I know it wasn't their breath and they just brushed their teeth as well, but too funny. Cracked me up

We were having some work done on our sprinkler system the other day. 4 yo dcg was very interested in watching them work and talking their ears off. She was telling one of the boys working that her mother wasn't feeling very well because she had her boobs lifted. Her mother recently had some work done. We laughed so hard! My kids think it is the funniest thing and tell everyone the story.

One of my kids asked me today if I have boobs while stroking her mom's breast. After a quick laugh I said 'Yes, I do.' Her mom states that she's going to go right that one down and on the way out the kids very excited tells her mom that I have boobs. Kids are awesome!

One of my toddlers (B) lifted up the bottom of my shirt today and poked my love handle repeatedly. He then looked at me and smiled. I told him laughingly "stop poking my belly goofball!" He kept doing it. I love that kid.

DD and DCG are currently "sneaking" up the stairs to scare me. This would be a tad bit more effective if it wasn't accompanied by a lot of giggling, the squeaking of the front door closing so they can get past it, the fact that I can see the front door, and the fact that the staircase is more-or-less open to the living room.

But I still jumped and "yelped" when they popped out and "scared" me, and they fell on the floor giggling wildly and proud that they managed to "scareded" me!

And I'm laughing inside at how sneaky kids think they are, but really aren't...so cute.

ds: "mom look what I can do!"
me: "sorry hun, mommy's busy right now I'll look in a minute"
ds: "look with your eyes on the back of your head then"




Background, not sure if it was everyones mom who used to say it, but "mom's see everything, we have eyes on the back of our heads" was something I was always told. I remember checking my moms head for the invisible eyes...


Normally the only time my eyes are not on the kids is when I am doing dishes and they are eating lunch. My microwave is in a cubby above my sink, and the window is directly behind me (beside kitchen table).

SO I can see the entire kitchen in my peripheral and through the reflection on the microwave which basically acts like a mirror. Kids don't know this, so they start acting goofy, and I always tell them "stop making that face" or whatever they are doing, and they are STUNNED because they were watching to see if I was looking and clearly I was doing dishes with my back to them. So I tell them I have eyes on the back of my head.

I love it when my daycare kids ask me when I will be going to work. I try to clue them into the fact I am working but they don't get it.

What made me laugh today is the absolute absurdity of life. I summed up my friend's recent months in a few short phrases and made her laugh. Here's her last 6 months in a nut shell: "Hey I just met an awesome guy! We're in love and moving in together! I just landed the most awesome job! I'm buying a house! I'm getting married! Can the world please slow down just a little bit!" She's happy having fun and realizing things are moving far faster than she would have planned but it's working for her either way.

Also my husband is buying a scooter and did a bunch of house work today to make up for the fact it's a bunch of money!

My neighbor's youngest son timmy made me laugh today. They were about to travel for a family visit when he ask me if I would like to come. I told him I'm not part of the family, he then stopped and suddenly gave me his stuff toy and told me, now you're part of the family teddy is now your child and teddy is part of our family so you're now part of the family. It was really sweet, I just told him that I can't come because I'm busy, he smiled and told me, O.k can teddy come grandma will look for him but only if you allow. That was really a funny and sweet conversation. I was never interested for a baby talk until I meet this sweet boy.

The kids were all quiet eating snack, out of nowhere DCG 2.5 says "I'm the king of the world!" DCB 5 says "Don't you mean princess?"

Older kids talking before lunch about resturants. DCB 5 says they went to a new one called "Nooty's" and my DD 7 pipes up, "ever been to Mall of America? They have a Hooters!"

My 4 yo found that bag of marshmallows on the counter and was eating them. My husband asked him where he got the marshmallows. A looked at him square in the eyes and said, "From the marshmallow bag, where else" and walked away.

We were playing outside this morning and dcb 3 was hanging around me talking my ear off. The fact that only 50%ish of what he says is intelligible doesn't stop this kid, lol.

So anyway, I was holding my 7 week old.
DCB: "That's your baby!"
Me: "Yep, it sure is."
DCB: "You buyed him at the store, did you?"
Me: "No, sweetie, babies don't come form the store."
DCB: "Oh, you got him in the jungle! Babies come in the jungle!"
Me:

I can't WAIT to relate this conversation to dcm tonight

last winter when my great nephew was 3 he was watching the birds at the bird feeder. Most of the birds were grayish in color and then there was a beautiful red cardinal that flew to the feeder. He said my mother-in-law grandma, who painted that bird?

Default Happy Meals, if only

Well it was not today, it was last night. My family eats a weird diet on a daily basis. Well of course my 3 yr old son sees at Mc Donalds commerical and says wow mom I want one of those happy meals. So I called my hubby to ask if it was ok. I might be a health freak, but it's america and I don't think it would hurt once or twice a year.

So off we go in the car to Mc Donalds. I pull up to the drive around and we are at a menu sign. I honestly have not been to a Mc Donalds since my college days, so I was not sure what they had.

So as I am reading the menu sign to my 3 year old, I ask him do you want a hamburger or chicken strips... His reply:
I would like to have steak and shrimp with corn. So I have to tell him they don't have that here. He gets really upset and is whinning..... I talk him into french fries, which I am not too sure he has ever had before from a restaurant/ quick food.

So we end up with a milkshake and a small order of fries. He takes two bites of fries and says mommy I want to take them back.....

so we went home and ate dinner there.

Default Gee...I wonder which of you is responsible?

I had to answer the door briefly this morning (up six steps from the playroom and within sight of most of it, but my back was turned). When I got back down there, my two dcks had gotten into the art stuff and were playing with a massive amount of pipe cleaners. I gasped and one looked at me like a deer in the headlights. The other dropped to the floor behind the art table and tried to crawl under it. Gee, i wonder which (NUMBER TWO) of you decided to get into that stuff?

I called my 15 yo down to help me clean the kitchen. It's a bit cluttery from the day, but not bad.

She takes one look and asks, "What happened in here, it was clean last night? Do I have to sweep the floor again, I mopped it last night?"

Uh, life happened and yes, you have to sweep the floor again.

Went into the next room to answer the door. Children were playing with rubber stamps and WASHABLE ink pads. The little darlin went home tinted a nice pale green. 30 seconds outta site, that's all I was gone and btw, this kid is 4.25yrs.

Default Funny, because if I don't laugh about it, I'll scream...

DCB 3 has finally started getting his shoes on the right feet fairly consistently. I say "finally" because his mom makes a big deal out of it, not me...I could care less at this age if they do it right the first time. But anyway,

so now that he gets them on the right feet consistently, he comes to me and says, "Look [silversabre25]! I got them right feet!" and I tell him "Yes, they are the right feet, you did it!"

Then what does he do? He goes and sits down and takes them off and switches them!!! EVERY DANG TIME. "That was wrong feet. now they right feet!"

I feel like banging my head against the wall...

Yesterday my DS (who will be 7 tomorrow) ran inside while we were outside playing. He grabbed a piece of computer paper and a yellow marker. He wrote a recipe and insisted we make it last night.

Aggs, flour, buter, humey, bnanus, penut buter. It is apparently a cake recipe. I told him we couldn't make it last night because we don't have the right measurements. He said yes we do. It's 2 eggs, 2TBSP four, and proceeded to make up measurements. I thought it was great!

Little does he know that when he left for school this morning I googled the following : Egg, flour, honey, bananas, peanut butter and came up with a peanut butter banana bread recipe. (I don't have any peanut allergies). We are going to make this tonight and that will be our afternoon snack (treat) for his birthday tomorrow.

OH, that is too sweet! And how awesome that you were able to find a recipe that uses his ingredients (and for something resembling a cake, too!). Since he wanted it to be a cake, you could "frost" the "cake" with a simple glaze. Or make a simple cream cheese frosting (cream cheese, powdered sugar, a little milk).
