All Work and No Play

Friday, July 18th, 2014

We were discussing synonyms and antonyms one night at dinner. I asked my son, “What is the opposite of happy?” His response was wise beyond his years: “It’s when you have to go to work!”

Ask For Directions

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

My niece and I were driving to a party, and I had the GPS on to help with directions. I asked Bianca to be quiet for a little bit so I could hear the GPS voice tell me when to turn. Bianca whispered from the backseat, “Where does the GPS lady actually live?”

Potty Mouth

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

We were stuck in traffic in the car one day, and my frustration got the best of me. Instead of using a potty word, I exclaimed “Oh, for the love of Pete!” My son replied, “Mommy, is ‘Pete’ a bad word or a good word?”

Slip ‘n Slide

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

My son’s feet got soapy in the shower, so I cautioned him not to walk before I gave them a rinse because they would be slippery. He replied, “They’re good for moonwalking though.”

Speak My Language

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

One night, I explained to my daughter that people from France speak French, people from Germany speak German, people from Russia speak Russian, and so forth. Wide-eyed, she said, “Like we do here in Tennessee! We speak Tennis.”
