Kids say the darndest things...


Amelle had Jermaine and I laughing all day yesterday. She was just being herself - a regular 4 (going on 5) year old. I wanted to capture some of the things she said, so I typed them into a Word document this morning for safe keeping (my memory is just not reliable). I thought I'd share a few with you..

Erin: What are you mad at?

Amelle: “The one we call mommy”



Amelle: “You hurt my feelings, and now they’re bleeding”



Jermaine: What are you going to do when you’re five?

Amelle: “Crack eggs. Go to Kindergarten”.



Amelle: “I need a new dad”

Jermaine: Why? What’s wrong with me?

Amelle: “You’re not my favorite color. Me, you, Avery and Amaya need to be white like mommy.”

Jermaine: Well, mommy’s favorite color is brown, that’s why she married me.

That girl is TOO funny! How about when I asked her if she liked the wallet I got her for her birthday, she said, "I need some cash for it." HA!! Nothing like the truth!

Hey! I like your handle!

She's a hoot, she must get that from her auntie!!

...that's where she gets her good looks too!! :-)

...and her teeth... (see photo)

HA HA - you are right about the looks (not the teeth, well not yet anyway)!!

My Button Lady certainly can express herself. I loved the comment about her feelings were bleeding!

I cannot recall you at 4 or even 8, Erin, coming up with such phrases and yet, now you are so quick witted.

Better keep practicing that quick wittedness--you are going to have some major competition!

Absolutely too cute! How 'bout my kids "What's yellow?" "What's on T.V. on?" "God doesn't love me, I'm always getting hurt." "I have a bee up my nose" (it was really a BEAD and yes, I got it out)- "Can I have another penny? I ate the last one." (O.K. went to the E.R. for that one - never did find it.) "What if you're all raptured & I'm left behind?" - never did really answer that one.

Nancy & Denise were funny kids! I'm impressed by your memory Mrs. Kuhn!!

I love the penny comment! ...I guess they didn't always have bland diets! :-)

kids are hysterical and come out with the funniest things! I always come home with so many stories from my preschool class to tell Tim. One of the more recent ones is that every time we pray one of my students keeps interrupting (while I'm praying) and says "do we have to close our eyes" and everytime I say "yes", so the other day when it was time for the kids to pray one of the other childrens prays "Dear God, help Mary to remember to close her eyes when we pray" (names are changed to protect the innocent) :) Then yesterday one of my students prays "Dear God, help my dogs breath not to smell so bad" it's at those times that I have to hold back from not cracking up!

Oh, and another story...at the beginning of class I ask the kids what's exciting in their lives right now and one student goes..."I got new underwear", so I just said "oh...OK" and tried to move on so that the whole class wouldn't start talking about underwear...then he keeps going..."they're black and gray...and when I wear them I feel WILD!!!"

Denise..
That is tooooo funny! To his credit, when I wear my black ones I feel "wild" too! Har ha!! I know...TMI! ...some things are just better coming from a 5 year old than from a 33 year old! :-)
