Snapshot of a Statement

Have you ever stopped and thought about some of things you say on any given day? Have you ever sat quietly and really listened to your kids’ conversations in the car? Have you ever thought of taking a snapshot of a statement?

 Here's mine...

"Mom, when I come out, I am going to flick a booger on you."

Oh really? So... Archer was in trouble and in his room...and this is what I heard.

Would you think a sweet little face like this would say something like that to his mama?





Now it's YOUR turn...
You can write a post on your own blog and link it back to Managing Marbles 
OR SIMPLY
Leave your snapshot in the comments section of this post.

Can't wait to see what you and your little ones have been saying!

Come back EVERY TUESDAY for Snapshot of a Statement...

"Simon, be careful carrying that, ok?"

"Mom...I'll be careful. I'm 6 years old! I've been trained for 6 years! I can do it!"

Thought to myself... "He's got a point!"

From the archives: Our then almost four-year-old was playing with his binoculars, which he called "noculars." I explained that if there was only one lens it would be called a "monocular." He then said, "And when I turn them around backwards they're called re-noculars."

sam (10 yrs old): i've been thinking about this since i was little...when i die i want to be buried with flowers over me.

me: oh, ok, why?

sam: in case i'm still alive, it would be easier to get out then with a tombstone over me...

ps. i'm pretty sure this is what he was thinking about while he was taking his last math test...:(

Keep 'em coming...I am loving these!

Jenny P.- smart kiddo :)

Jenny B.- that is HILARIOUS!!!

Jenny B - speaking of "death" - A few weeks ago after church I was talking with our pastor's wife, and the kids were running around playing. It had been a loooong week. I said, "well, I'd better get them home before I kill somebody." To which Grace howled, "BUT I DON'T WANT TO GET KEEEYLD...I DON'T WANT TO DIE!!!" Yeah, and she's four.

Hand over the "bad mommy award". When we watch TV in the evening before Abby's bedtime we've been avoiding the more PG visuals (romance or action) but didn't think the dialogue would register with her. Well, now it's time to stick to strictly Super Why and Cat in the Hat whenever the kid is awake.

Grey's Anatomy: "How long have you been screwing my husband?"

Abby: "Husband? What? No!"

I'm just glad it was "husband" and not the any of the other words she could have chosen to mimic.

On my way out for a run at the cabin, wearing a tank top... Grace asks "Mom, why do you have two peanut m&m's in your bra?" Nice.

Kelly said...

Hannah- That is so funny! Yea, good thing... :)

Anne - I actually laughed OUT LOUD!!! That is hilarious!

Today, Isaiah asked me when he could go visit outer space. I told him that he could be an astronaut when he grows up and then he could go to space. He told me, "No, mom. When I'm 5, I can be a kid astronaut. I will go to outer space when I am 5". :)

Since my butterbean is not speaking yet I will be quoting a 3rd grade student of mine. This student of mine walked in to class one day handed me a piece of paper and on the front was a picture of a chocolate bar above it said,"Mrs. Walker is better than a chocolate bar." I still have it in my desk.

My three year old daughter, Abby, picked her nose ate it the other day.

After I threw up in my mouth, I told her not to eat what comes out of her nose because it was gross and unclean.

She looked at me like I was crazy and said, "Mom, I eat my boogers because they are chocolate and I love chocolate."

WHAT?!

There were no words. I just turned and walked away.

Chocolate?! Where does she get this stuff?!

These are great!!!

My ten year old is trying to convince me to get her a Coach purse. She believes that since she is close to her period a Coach purse will prevent her the embarrassment of taking her purse to the bathroom. See when you take your purse to the bathroom everyone knows you have your period BUT if you have an expensive designer purse you are just taking it to the bathroom so no one will steal it (Sigh) She is too smart for her own good!!! LOL

Ha! That is so funny and sounds so familiar! The other day my 4 y/o actually PUT a booger on me! Ew, ew, ewwwww... Your little guy is really cute! (Thanks for linking this up to #findingthefunny last week!)
