Funnies from the Past

(June 5, 2002 Anderson age 6)

Mom “Grandpa Mathews called and wants to know if you and Cayden want to make some money this summer.”

Anderson “Sure, we could do that. It’s made out of paper. I just don’t know if we have the right color.”


December 2006 Sydney age 5

OK, so Sydney was driving me absolutely nuts with her out of nowhere oddball questions! I decided to take a different approach (I was completely ignoring her or shrugging the questions off with an "I dunno"). I began to write her questions down but sad to say many of them were still answered with "I dunno". But really...is there any other way to answer some of these!?

What happens to the sun when it gets really windy?
When were you last married?
Why do we wear underwear?
Would you still choke on a toy if you chewed it up first?
Does that long stick thing in your body hold up your brain?
If people are frozen can they still move their eyes?
If Anderson died with his cap on would we leave it on or take it off?
(Plunking on the lower keys at the end of the piano) Are these keys to play bad music?

(Cayden age 4 or 5)
When Cayden was little he was crying and when I asked him what was wrong he said that he didn't know what he was going to be when he grew up. I told him that was fine, he had a long time to think about it.

Cayden: No..Alex already knows what she is going to be.
Amy;: She does? What is she going to be?
Cayden: (still sobbing) A shark!


(January 15, 2002 Cayden age 4)
As he was throwing up with the flu…
“When I threw up my flu shot came out.”

Those are great! I love the "shark" comment. I have been pretty good about keeping a journal of all the funny things Caitlyn has done, it makes my stomach muscles cring whenever I bring it out! So funny, thanks Amy!

Heidi 'n' Jeff said...

Those are awesome! I wish I would have written things down like that. Thanks for sharing. :)

Noelle said...

oh i'm laughing so hard while trying to be quiet i'm crying. LOLOL.

Alicia said...

These are my favorite posts! Your kids have some of the funniest kid sayings I've ever heard. I loved the money one, I can't believe I've never heard it before!

I think you can always tell the families with kids that love to read...they have such colorful imaginations! Sydney's questions were very well thought out for a 5 year old.

Cute stories. They made me laugh.

Ben and Alissa said...

So funny! I'll have to make sure to write down all the funny things my kids say, it's hilarious to look back at!

I love the one about the bottom notes on the piano.. Laugh-Out-Loud Funny!!

I laughed out loud-Thanks!!

I loved these. Children and their impossible to answer semi-rhetorical questions, are one of the biggest non- behavior problems parents ever have to deal with.
I love that you wrote them down for posterity, btw.

Deborama said...

Too funny! Can you have Anderson make me some money too! I think back at all the missed things I never wrote down when my big three were little! Thank heavens for blogs! :)

Jodi said...

I LOVE these!! Thanks for the laughs!

Mikki said...

Oh, these are so funny. Kids just say the cutest things.
What is it with those kids questions anyway. Haley asks me lots of them too, and I usually just end up saying: "I don't know Haley, what would happen if.....(whatever her questions was)". sigh.

I had been waiting to read this post on a morning when I needed a funny and I couldn't stop laughing! These are too funny!
