I have been into lists lately. Sometimes I take notes when my kids say funny shit. I like to think this will not be damaging to them, but who am I kidding? My seven-year-old boy is a serious mix of ambition, angst, and affection. He will definitely have road rage as an adult, but he will also be the first person to reach out for a hug. In the meantime, he makes me laugh. Here are some things I have heard him say recently:
I like Hailey. I would never fart in front of her.
It is a good thing there are squid or else I wouldn’t have anything to hate.
Do we have any Kaboom with Oxi Clean?
If we ever go to war and have to use fruit, we are going with pineapple because if someone threw a grape at me, it wouldn’t really hurt.
Going to bed is my worst enemy.
When we don’t have any Gatorade, which is pretty much every day, then I like to drink water.
But seriously what would happen if there was no sun?
The baby was pooped out, just like mom did to us when we were born.
I also have notes from my five-year-old daughter, and I have thought about writing a list with her comments and asking people to guess who said it, either some old man pervert or my adorable girl. I am pretty sure most people would guess wrong. Here are some of the memorable things she has said to me recently:
Can I touch your boobs?
Girl, get in here and let me see your style!
Those pants make me like you more.
When can we have some drinks?
I am pretty sure that when she is older we are going to be great friends.
