Still mostly the off-season though many of us are ramping for early season races. I thought this would be a fun thread for a Monday.<br><br>
So I was cutting the tags off a new pair of track pants the other day when DS spotted the "M" sticker denoting the size. The ensuing conversation:<br><br>
DS: Those are medium. They're not yours.<br>
Me: Yes they are. Who else do you think would wear periwinkle stripes?<br>
DS: But they're medium. You can't wear them.<br>
Me: Why not?<br>
DS: Daddy's size is medium.<br>
Me: What is my size?<br>
DS: Extra small!<br><br>
Earning the points early....<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

That's cute, Hobey. I don't have kids, but I heard one from my friend the other night. She put on a new dress to go to a party and walked downstairs. Her 5-year old daughter saw her and said, "Mommy, you look fantastic. You look just like a hula dancer."

I have two too cutes from this week<br><br>
When picking up the car at the repair shop my son tells the mechanic he can't have the paper # back that they have hung from the rearview. Because "Mommy needs it to race"<br>
...<br>
While watching the food network or something they announce a chocolate marathon all day... To which the kids jumps off the couch in Unison and yell "Can you do that one? Mom ~ Mom a chocolate marathon! PLEASE!!!" Husband chimes in w/ it sounds much better than the mud one I like so much

A friends kid<br><br>
After explaining the whole gun hunting thing to her son and the fact that dad shot a deer and there was going to be ground venison in the house my friend was making Boca Burgers for dinner. As she puts the plate in front of the 4 year old he asks.... "who shot this one momma?"<br>
My friend didn't know how to explain how soybean burgers were made so she just told him that they were made from the plants that came from my house. ( I had 170 acres of soybeans this year)

We don't have kids yet, so I guess the only thing my future kids might say now is, daddy, keep doing your thing with mommy and eventually we'll come out, but beware that you might not be able to train that much anymore once it happens.

When my youngest was about 9, he asked me: "Am I going to look like you when I'm grown up?" I said "sure, you are."<br>
He said, "Good!"<br><br>
Made me very happy. I'm about to have tears now. That was 7 years ago, now they say things like, "I need money."<br>
Okay, I'm over it.

When my daughter went out to Daddy-Daughter dance a few nights ago and my son, 8, and I were alone;<br>
me: I love you.<br>
DS8: I love you, too. And I love you more than you do.<br>
me: How do you know how much I love you?<br>
DS8: I don't know. But I know I always love you back more.<br><br>
Again same night. I was lying on my stomach reading RW or something while he was playing with his lego. Without saying anything he just stood up and lay over me on his stomach holding onto my shoulder for a few seconds. I had to start an earthquake when he started tickling me.<br><br>
He still reaches to hold my hand when we walk together. Just a cute little guy <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

No kids...just nieces....<br><br>
Over Christmas:<br><br>
Youngest one (3 yr old) got "Emma" from Santa. Note: Emma cries and blinks, and stops crying when you "feed" her. She even sucks and coos as she's eating. Emma has an "off" switch. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
DN: Stitch....someone turned Emma off.....(puzzled look)<br>
me: Oh? (I know it was my mother who did it....usually she takes out the batteries!)<br>
DN: Yeah....but it's ok. I found her switch and turned her back on....(conspiriatorial significant glance)<br><br><br>
Later.......<br><br>
My mom: DN! I'm sick of hearing your baby cry. You need to go get her and feed her right now. (stern face)<br>
DN: Nanny....Emma is in Time Out.....(all knowing/wise look on face)<br>
Mom: Emma has lived here for two days....WHAT could she have done to need to be in timeout?<br>
DN: (exasperated face)....She hit her sister<br>
Mom: Well, she needs to be out of time out....you go get her.<br>
So...off she goes to get Emma. Emma is behind the piano, in a box, in the corner.<br>
That's SOME timeout!!

9yo son is reading a question on his math page. It's something like "such-such-town holds a 4.1K marathon..." Son yells "Duh, THAT'S not a marathon! EVERYONE knows that a marathon is 26.2 miles!"

he he he he.<br>
I think he ought to put that in his answer.<br>
See what the teacher says.<br><br>
(But, have the "book" answer in his back pocket in case said teacher isn't having a "funny bone" sort of day)

These are totally adorable! Fun to read.<br><br>
My DS, now a stinky teenager, once asked his kindergarten teacher quite earnestly, "do you have any contemporary furniture?"

Another good one from same kid--Questions regarding reading a bus schedule. "If you missed the such and such bus, could you still make it to this place by this time?" Son's answer--"yes, you could walk."

DD1.9 and DD3.5 hold triathlons. One rings the cowbell while the other runs up and down the hallway and then jumps on their scooter and goes around the kitchen table.

Well of course the funniest thing they say is when they ask me after EVERY race if I won. Funny to hear since I am definilty bop or mop.<br><br>
But recently my two girls have made up a new song which they find very funny: Imagine the tune to Barney's "I love you, you love me"<br><br>
DD5 and DD3:<br>
"I love you, you love me, we're a stinky family, which a great big fart and a burp from me to you, won't you say your stinky too"<br><br>
I have to remind them that is not a song to sing in a resturant.

I love watching my teenagers interact with eachother, they get along great and have these amazing conversations.<br><br>
Last Thursday, DD went to take her written test to get her driver's license. She missed passing it by a couple of questions. By the time she got home she was crying and feeling like a complete failure. <img alt="crybaby2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/crybaby2.gif"><br>
DS asked her what questions she missed-<br>
#1. How far does a bike light have to illuminate at night?<br>
#2. How long will you lose your license if you get a DUI?<br><br>
DS, trying to be her supportive younger bro says in response to question #2- That's a really dumb question- we all know that it's against the law to drink and drive AND if you are really <i>THAT</i> stupid, the judge is going to tell you how long you've lost your license. Don't feel bad Court, you'll pass it next time.
