Okay you folks with children - and those of you like me with children in your lives somehow:<br><br>
What cute things are they saying?<br><br>
Yesterday we spend the afternoon with my parents, my brother, SIL and niece. The exchange between my niece (who is 3) and my dad ( who is in his early 60s)as my dad was unwrapping some Dove chocolate eggs which the niece was told she could not also have:<br><br>
MissM: "Grandpa, your stomach's getting big"<br>
Dad: "Yeah, well you're short."<br>
MissM "Hey, I'm THREE." (Complete with the 3 fingers to show him)<br><br><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Can we guess where I get MY maturity level?!?!

My 3yo nephew is rewarded for using the potty with peanut M&Ms. He calls them "balls". One day recently, my sister had a carpenter in to do some work and she was talking to him when he was done. He was eating a bag of M&Ms. My nephew saw it and said, "Momma, Mark's got balls!"<br><br>
Ah, yeah, Sis had to explain THAT one. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

When my 24 yr old son was about 3, we were having a hamburger on a sesame seed bun. He pointed to the sesame seeds and said, "If we plant these will we grow hamburgers?"

Yesterday my sassy 7 year old nephew stuck his tounge out at grandpa and grandpa chased him into the living room. Well a couple of seconds later my nephew comes screaming out of the living room "GRANDPA'S GOING TO SMACK MY ASSSSSSS!!!!!" My mom and I were so shocked all we could do was laugh!

My brother reported once when MissM was closer to 2 that when a car pulled out in front of him, from the backseat her little voice piped up with, "What the fuck?!"<br><br><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

This happened a few months back...but it's one of my favorite daughter stories...<br><br>
I picked up my daughter Lucy (4) from preschool yesterday...and she had a handful of small rocks that she picked up from the playground. Her teacher hands me her daysheet...and it has a reminder to bring your favorite toy on Friday for show-and-tell.<br><br>
So I tell Lucy "You need to bring your favorite toy on Friday."<br><br>
And she asks "Can I bring my rocks?"<br><br>
And I say "No...you need to bring a toy."<br><br>
And she replies "Can I bring these toy rocks?"<br><br>
How do you reason with that?!!

Another potty training story...<br><br>
One of my kids would not poop on the potty for anything. So, we turned to bribery. The kid wanted a tape measure. Okay, whatever. The kid finally poops on the potty and he and hubby go to the hardware store and get one. Later, we walk up to a neighborhood ice cream stand. Son announces "I had a gi-gantic poopy on the potty. Then we got a tape measure!". You can imagine the looks we got!

I still laugh at this one almost 15 years later:<br><br>
You've all heard me talk about the woman in grad school that I thought was so pretty.<br><br>
Well, during my second year of grad school I came home for spring break. My nephew was at the house one day and he was about 3 at the time. I was having lunch, and he was looking at some pictures of people I knew in grad school.<br><br>
He saw a picture of this woman I thought was so pretty.<br><br><b>My Nephew:</b> Who is this Uncle K?<br><b>Me:</b> That's my friend Kelly (named changed here to protect the innocent and the not so innocent). What do you think of her?<br><br>
My nephew looked at me, looked back at the picture, then looked back at me and said very loudly "YUCK!"<br><br><b>Me:</b> Yuck? She's pretty.<br><b>My Nephew:</b> Yuck. She looks like a dragon!

When explaining breastfeeding, I told my then 2 year old that cows make cow milk just like mama's make mama milk. She pointed at her chest and said, "I make scrambled eggs and hash browns."<br><br>
I like to joke around and sing "We are the Champions" when I am done running. Miss S says that we are running chmapions, but Daddy doesn't run, so he's a love champion.

when i was about 6 i was staying with my grandmom and granddad for the day and we were going to the bookstore for some reason we had made up. Grandmom and i were already in the car waiting so she told me to go tell the old geezer to hurry up so i did. Until the day he died he was always the old geezer to me and i was either Dammit boy or you little shit. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

When my 16 year old son (good grief!! They grow up so quick!!) was about four, I had the stomach flu and had to throw up in my kitchen sink because I couldn't make it to my bathroom-so there I was, tossing my cookies and I finish, and I notice my darling son-blond hair, big blue eyes , looking at me. And what does he say??? "Mommy, you're so pretty" <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> This is the same son who is over 6' tall, size 13 men's shoe and now stands beside me and calls me 'shortie'! <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br>
Where did my sweet son go???? At least he is willing to share his chocolate with me. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

When my niece was 3 or 4 years old, my SIL and MIL tried everything they could think of to get her to give up her pacifier. Finally one day Nicole was promised a doll in exchange for the pacifier, and she reluctantly agreed.<br><br>
The 3 of them headed to a toy store where Nicole quickly found a doll she liked. With tears in her eyes, she took the doll up to the register, took the paci out of her mouth, plunked it down on the counter and headed towards the door. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Once Miss S asked me what how we had shadows, and I mumbled something about the sunshine and our bodies. She looked at me scornfully and said, "Mommy, we don't have any sunshine in our bottoms!"

My 6 year old the other day, after he didn't quite get his pants completely down before peeing: "I wasn't prepared to pee yet."

I am currently on a roadtrip with my sister and her kids. They saw this type of highway interchange for the first time ever when we got to the Dallas-Ft Worth area. They called these "spaghetti bridges". <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://static.flickr.com/85/244928520_0cd267d6e0.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

I think I've told you all about my wild middle godson, Nathan, haven't I? He's 7, going on about 36.<br><br>
After my best friend got engaged to her current husband, he had done some work around her apartment, and needed to shower. So, Chuck takes his shower, and as he's finishing up, Nathan goes into the bathroom. (Nathan was about 3 and a half when this happened.)<br><br>
Chuck gets out of the shower and is drying off. Chuck is totally used to Nater, so he was not at all fased by the fact that Nathan was hanging out in the bathroom while he was showering. So Nater spots Chuck's 'equipment' and says:<br><br>
"My dad has one of those, but yours is bigger."<br><br><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
