Boy 4 (age 6, G):
I volunteered in G’s classroom the other day and one classmate is a vocal know it all. I must’ve heard her say “I already knew that. I know that. I knew that before you.” no less than 10x over my two hours. And while there are many funny responses, this one came from my child.
They were walking down the hall and she (let’s call her X) says,
X: I know so much because I have a library in my house. My very own library. Full of books and so I know most everything
G: Well I know a lot too and I don’t even need a library to know a lot
X: My library is so great that it lets me study so I can know more than you
G: Well I know so much that I don’t even need to study
Then G looks up and pulls my head near him as he whispers,
“Mom, what does study mean? I don’t even know what I’m saying to this girl!” And then he laughs.
Gotta love this kid!
Boy #2 (age 6, P):
Lying in bed reading a Cat in the Hat book together and the two kids in the book were left home alone to shovel snow out of the driveway…
P: Where’s their mom?
M: Well she maybe had to run an errand or maybe she works.
P: And she left them home alone to work outside in the cold snow?
M: Yes, it appears that way.
P: What a bad mom. You would never do that to us. So glad you are my mom.
M: Yes, aren’t we lucky that if we had to shovel snow we would do it together. Some people just don’t have that option.
P: We are lucky.
Ahhhhhh…pulls on the mommy heartstrings 🙂
Boy #3 (age 6, S):
Said at breakfast this morning:
Mom, I just wanted to let you know that I get milk at school every day with my lunch and I always pick the one that says “fat free” so it doesn’t cost you any money.
Love this! So damn funny.
