Laughter, The best Medicine -May 16

Welcome to the "Laughter is the Best Medicine" Blogfest, hosted by Kydia Kang at The World is my Oyster and Leigh T Moore at That's Write.


Things I never thought I would say, (until I became a mom)

1. Get down off the trash can.
2. Please stop licking the floor/couch, blanket/other inanimate object.
3. Will you just eat the candy instead of carrying it around?
4. Toilet water is not for drinking.
5. Can't my house stay clean for more than 10 minutes at a time?
6. When do I get to sleep?

Things I never thought I would hear until I became a mom:

1. Oldest boy trying to whistle. He says "Woo hoo." In the tone of a whistle.
2. Oldest boy says, "My bum had a big burp" any time he needs to pass gas.
3. 2nd son telling me very matter of factly, "You are my mommy." Yes, son. I am. Thank you for noticing.
4. 2nd son, after going to the fridge and pulling out a container of juice. "I love juice." He then gives it a hug, so the juice feels loved.
5. Oldest boy comes in crying: "Mom, I can't reach the little mirror." (There's a small mirror close to the top of the fridge.) "My arms are too little."
5. 2nd son: Mommy, I need a tissue. Mommy: Why do you need a tissue? 2nd son: I need to get the booger off my finger. *wipes finger in tissue* This is my booger. *beams with pride*
6. My boys love the game "Plants vs. Zombies." They call it the Brain Game (because the zombies say "brains") or the Brain Game Goes to Church (because the Zombies are wearing ties.)
7. Oldest boy, talking to himself: J: "Thank you for helping." J: "Your welcome." J: "Thank you for welcoming."

There's always something to laugh about. And for more to laugh about, check out the other fine blogs in the blogfest. Click here for the linky list.

These are priceless! I especially like "Get down off the trash can," and "stop licking the ___"

By the way, my daughter loves her chicken nuggets just like your son loves his juice. She gives each one a kiss before eating it :)

Sarah said...

Brilliant! Reminds me of so many of my moments as a mom. I never thought I would hear myself say things like, "please remember that I am not a jungle gym," but motherhood does that to you.

Marybk said...

I love how kids come up with the most off-the-wall, funny, but adorable comments. Thanks for sharing these. My favorite is the zombies going to church...

Lydia K said...

Okay, those were precious!
My kid also says the butt hiccuping thing too, LOL.



Thank you for joining in on the Blogfest!

Ruth said...

Ah, the joys of motherhood. :)

Ella said...

These are gems of childhood; my daughter use to call the garbage truck, Fruck...Yeah, I'm thankful for the F in that word. Thanks for sharing; you took me back to swimming soup and bland aids!

Sophie Li said...

LOL! I can totally relate. My kids say the darnest things. <3

I just followed you. Thanks for the laugh!

Anita said...

So hilarious! I think this is the most creative post I've seen this morning on the blogfest trail. Well done! Oh, and my fave, "Toilet water is not for drinking." LOL

Thanks for the giggles, Kayeleen. :D

Clarissa Draper said...

Well, I'm glad someone is loving the orange juice! Love how your children talk to themselves. They will be great writers some day.

Melissa Kline said...

He, he. Hilarious! I could write a book about my boys and their "isms" This is great! Thanks for the laugh. :)

hahaha, kids are so funny! Mine also have burping bottoms.

Laurel Garver said...

These were great! I too have a kid who will hug all kinds of things. She also thinks worms and slugs are adorable and likes to build them playgrounds in my garden.

Plants vs. Zombies is the best! Have you watched their music video on the popcap site? It's a total hoot!

Jennie Bailey said...

Get down off the trash can! You killed me with the first one! What a great idea to share those. Loved them!

Kayeleen Hamblin said...

thanks to everyone for joining in the laughs. It certainly made my day a little brighter.

Rhonda said...

LOL - Kids are great for this kind of post :) Happy blogfest day!

Angela Felsted said...

I'm so glad your juice feels loved. And yes, there are so many things I never thought I'd say before I had kids.

LTM said...

BAH!!! I'm sorry, but the butt burp got me. Yep, that's about where my brain is...

Plants and Zombies is pretty good, too, though. And you have two boys! That's why the house is never clean! :D

Love it. Kids are the best source. Thanks for playing! <3

Teralyn Rose Pilgrim said...

Your boys are adorable! I love how you have to tell your children not to lick the floor. That's something I don't think I'll ever say, but I guess I'm not a mom yet!

To get a real laugh, it takes a kid. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I'm now your number 96. Only FOUR more. :)
