A Little Funny

Today I have a little boy story for you…

This morning the boys were having trouble getting along and then finally teamed up to start up a diary. The general gist of this idea was that they’d record all the bugs they found in the house and what they were doing.

First entry: “I saw a daddy long legs. I found him behind the door. He doesn’t have a web. Now he is poopin on the wall, now it’s dead. One spider put more blood in him.” (Translation: he lives!) Side note: there are no, repeat no, daddy long-legs in our house.

Shortly after they begin this project, we have to go and run some errands. I’m off getting ready and arrive at the front door to hear this conversation:

Little One (5yr.): “….I’m gonna but that in my diarrhea.”
Big One (7yr.): “No, no, a diarrhea is a bunch of fruits.”

I couldn’t help but burst out laughing. I told them both that that’s not what diarrhea is. But Big One assures me he’s heard someone say that before.

Any–way, I should be in for some doozies next week as I’m the ‘Leader’ for the 1st graders in our church’s Vacation Bible School. Basically I’m in charge of keeping them in line, literally and figuratively. I’ll need the weekend to rest up.

  1. Have you read “The Diary of A Worm”? It’s great, but my kids truly believe that it’s called “Diarhea of a Worm.” That’s just all sorts of gross!

  2. your kids sound so cute!

    Beck: We agree–great book (we like Diary of a Spider too). But ick!

    Thanks Sara! Everything seems much cuter in hindsight though…

  4. Kids are so honest with their thoughts and beliefs. I love it.

    Sounds like you are going to have a busy week. I remember doing that when mine where young. I so enjoyed being a part of it. Of course by the time the week ended I was exhausted but hey the kids all thought I was the coolest mom ever. :)

    You’re boys just might be on their way to writing their first book together when it’s all said and done.

  5. It sounds like you are going to have a lot of fun! Enjoy your calm before the storm. :)

  6. Never a dull moment in your house, is there? LOL.

  7. Good luck with VBS!

  8. Too Funny! I only had one girl. God knew what he was doing when he gave me only one and a girl at that. She’s an adult now but I’m looking forward (though not soon) to be a grandma. Take care – LC
