I oughta record that!
Nothing new in the fact that kids say some amazingly funny stuff. It's also nothing new that I have yet to record any of it, despite the fact that people remind me to with amazing regularity. So today, when a few greats were uttered in the backyard, I wondered: if I post them on uM, does that count as recording them? Can my children use a blog as their mother's scrapbook (since I so ain't creating my own)? Time will tell, I guess. Regardless of how history (and my kids!) treats all this blogging stuff, I am compelled to share these two from my 2-YO daughter (sadly my 5-YO doesn't generate nearly as many):
- While watering the garden with a hose: 'Mama, it sounds like pee-pee.' 'Yeah,' I said, 'like when Daddy and your brother pee-pee.' 'No,' she replied, 'like the plants are pee-peeing.' Never even crossed my mind.
- While eating watermelon outside with my 2-YO after my husband and son had both fallen asleep inside the house: 'Shhh, Mama, we have to be quiet with our teeth because Daddy and brother are sleeping.' Those noisy teeth, waking everyone up again.
Can you share a LOL kid saying from this summer, and give us all a chuckle this Monday morning? Plus, do tell if you've got a tricky system for actually recording or remembering them. I'm open to it even if I know deep down it just ain't gonna happen - the recording and the remembering, that is. But the best part is the joy I get in chuckling to myself when they say such great stuff so very earnestly. Truly a joy of parenting.
