My friend Christina has started a little Friday fun by jotting down the funny things her cutie little girl has said over the week, and since I’m all about themes, and topical days (it gets me out of a jam when I don’t have time to find real stuff to write about!) I thought I’d join in today.
I’ve been saving a couple funny things Em and Ad have been saying and I really want to get them down somewhere so I don’t forget them.
So here goes – my funny Valentines…
Addie’s funny words and phrases:
ahind = behind, as in “Mama! Look ahind you! There is a puppy!”
yook = look, as in “Yook at me, Mama!” Must also grab my chin and turn my head towards her when saying this.
musbash = mustache, as in “Do I have a musbash, Mama?” Said every time she takes a drink of something, not always a milk mustache, either.
Emma’s funny phrases:
knick-knack name = nickname, as in “What is your knick-knack name, Daddy?”
And, the other day she asked me – “Mama? Is Addie pushing your buttons right now?!”
And a couple of funny stories from Addie and my “day out” together the other day:
Addie: “Mama? Can we go to the puppy/kitty store (what she calls PetSmart)?”
Me: “Sure. I have one more errand to run, and then we will stop, ok?”
Addie: (sighs) “Ah, Mommy. Do you know how happy that makes Addie?”
(I tell them all the time when they do something *nice* – “Do you know how happy that makes Mommy?” but it sounds very funny coming back at me!)
And one more…
We were going into a bathroom at a store and an older gentleman was coming out and held the door open for A. and I. Then, later when we were leaving the store, he happened to be leaving as well and again, he held the door for A. and I.
Me: “Thank you so much! We are just going to follow you around all day so we can have the doors held for us.”
Man: (chuckles) “No problem. I’m just doing my duty.”
So A. and I continue down the street and all of a sudden she starts giggling…
Ad: “Mama…he said It’s my DOODY!”
Me: (kinda clueless at the moment) “Yes, it means like a chore or a job.”
And then I see her face and she is snickering at the word, because she thinks the man was referring to poop.
Where on God’s-Green-Earth does that girl come up with this stuff? Never in my life have I ever used the word, “doody!
My girls seem to have missed the memo that says that only boys laugh at bathroom humor.
