Let's hear some of the hilarious things your kids have said lately (or not so lately). Our house is an uproarious comedy of the stuff the kids say. It's the stuff you have to memorialize. I will go first: Claire had a friend over this weekend for a sleepover and we painted nails. Her friend says to Claire, while holding up an orange stick "What's this for?" and Claire says "One end is for taking off stickers (which is true - I use the pointy end for removing decals), and the other end is for pushing back your tentacles."
Last night at dinner the 3 year old was grumpy. Dh said "He sure is fun tonight" and Carson yelled "I am not fun today"

Yesterday before dinner Ben is standing in front of me in the living room and he's got his head tilted to one side and shaking it like he's got water in his ear. I say "Ben, what are you doing?" and he said "I'm shaking out the Scooby Snacks." I almost peed my pants.
Oh my gosh, thank you for posting this. You spurred my memory, I meant to write this down a few weeks ago!
Weston has trouble with the word yellow, it comes out as Lellow. Which is funny because he can say yell. A few weeks ago I was working with him to pronounce it correctly while we were unloading the dishwasher. Tiven came into the kitchen & told him rather rudely to move out of her way. He said, "Don't yellow at me!" Obviously he meant yell, not yellow, and we all started laughing. Then Tiven said, "Well, you oranged at me first." Weston thought for a minute and said, "You better be quiet or I'll blue you." To which Tiven replied, "I'm going to go green over here," and she left the kitchen. We laughed about that all night.
Join the revolution & take back our holidays!

One of my favorites from Nathaniel was a few years ago. He'd started going to church with Dave so they used to have talks where he'd ask Dave questions. One day he asked why Noah had to bring two of each animal onto the ark. Dave explained that if you want to make MORE of one kind of animal, you need a male and a female.
"I'm sure I don't want to hear the rest of this...." said Nathaniel. And changed the subject.

Ha ha we have some funny kids.
Today, we took the kids bowling for the first time. We planned to go and swim at my grandma's after so I packed beach balls. I explained about how we bowl and how you send the ball down the lane. Corinne got all quiet and sad and said..."but mom, what if it pops?". Took me a second to realize she thought she had to bowl with her beach ball! She was so happy when we told her that they have different balls to bowl with.

I took Leia to the dentist last week and whilst there she needed the toilet (surprise!). The regular toilets were full up so we went into the disabled toilet. She did her business and whilst washing her hands someone tried the door. She panicked and said "pretend you can't walk!!" - I almost died haha.

My 2 year old was having a meltdown because I stopped her from jumping on the stairs.
My 5 year old says "Mom's not evil, I promise"

This morning while getting in the van Claire said "Mommy hurry up and turn on the heat. It's cold." and Ben looked at me very seriously and said "Mommy, you will start the van when you're good and ready, because you're the boss of us."
One of the funniest had to be when Isaac was about 4 asked his dad " Are you a dustmite?"
Josiah's funniest I think was when he was about 6 said.. "Those snowflakes are humongous they are almost prehistoric."
