When my middle son was maybe 4 and he proudly announced to others, "My mommy doesn't have a dinky......she pees out of her butt"!............... I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants............tears were rolling down my face.

A couple involving my siblings......

Dad, who had a hot temper, was yelling at my youngest brother over some wrongdoing. An even younger sister, about 3 or so, asked him sweetly, "Daddy, are you going to give him a good **** spanking?"

Another sister, at about the same age, kept trying to interrupt a conversation Mom was having with a friend. Mom said, "Shut your little mouth." Sister indignantly replied, "I don't have a little mouth - I have a big mouth!"

My very own sweet child, trying to tell me that Grandma had forgotten something, told me that Grandma had "lost her mind of it."

I'm laughing so hard right now--made my Friday afternoon as I'm struggling with a sinus infection and don't feel particularly great. I have another Christopher "pooh pooh head" story to share. Once I was trying to feed his baby sister, Kari, and as usual he is bang-clanging about and finally exasperated I pleaded with him, "Please, Chris, stop making all that noise you are making Mommy's ears ring." Well, it did get somewhat quieter, and then I noticed Chris getting closer and closer to me and finally he is cocking his head right next to my ears and I asked him what was his problem---and in all sincerity he replies "Mommy, I don't hear any ringing"--he was actually trying to hear ringing come out of my ears---too funny.

When my son married, his wife already had a 3 year old daughter. We went up for the wedding and his soon to be wife and little girl and I went shopping. When we started in the grocery store, she said Mommie, may I show grandma the mobsters? I was laughing so hard by the time we reached the lobster tank. Her mother had never heard her mention that at all. I could just imagine Marlon Brando in the tank.

We were travelling in the car, and discussing the politics of ....a far off country. My 8 year old nephew piped up from the back seat and said" Are the Catholics still fighting with the prostitutes?" We were a bit silent for a moment until we figured out what he meant!

I read this story somewhere of a dad and his 3 year old daughter driving. The dad got cut off and he yelled at the other driver "you turkey!" Then his daughter told him "Dad! That's not a turkey, that's a man!"

Cora, that is something I really had to watch with my little grandson. He was about the same age when someone pulled right across in front of me. I wasn't happy but didn't realize I had said something aloud. GS said "mema, did you call that guy a jerk?". I had to tell him that I did, but shouldn't have.He and his mother lived with us for about 3 years so we had all kind of time together. Sometimes he would ask where we were going and I would sing to him to the tune of "havin a heatwave" - I'm drivin us crazy, I'm drivin us crazy - He said "mema, don't sing "drivin us crazy". So I stopped. Shortly he said "mema, will you sing "drivin us crazy again". We had such sweet times together and I really missed them when they moved out on their own, but so glad they were able to be independent.

I have two daughters 4 years apart. In the early years, the younger was having a problem pronouncing the "th" sound, she would say "s" rather than "th". Trying to train her out of the habit, her mom and I would correct her with emphasis on the "th", e.g. "Jen, say,'withhhhh'"

One night at the dinner table her older sister had forgotten her manners and was making a lot of noise eating her soup. I admonished her with, "Debbie, don't slurp your soup!". Jen corrected me with, "Dad, say, 'Thhhhlurp!'"

Cute thories----thanks for sharing!! As a first grade teacher I had taught a unit on the Pilgrims' First Thanksgiving in America and on the last day of school before the holidays we celebrated with a "feast" in the classroom. You name it--we did it------as a follow-up I asked the question "And what was the name of the ship that the Pilgrims sailed on to America?' Perplexed looks everywhere. Gee- I'm dismally thinking to myself----I guess I've done a great job of teaching. So I coaxed them with the hint "Remember, it's got the name of a flower in it-------finally one little boy's hand shot in the air and after nodding enthusiastically to him he yelps "The Cauliflower!!!" Yep, from the mouths of tomorrow's leaders!!!!!!!!
