Funny kids Part Deux

I love it when your kids say the cutest things. Like I have said before, they are so innocent and can just say it so sweetly. I have a few more that have cracked us up.

McKay wants a lamb for her birthday. We told her if she read everyday without missing a day that we would get her one. Anyway a few days ago we were in the car and she said, "Mom, shouldn't we start looking on the internet for a lamb?" I guess that is a sign that Jake and I buy things off EBAY too much.

Kirsten is the one that comes up with most of them. Kirsten was talking to Axel in the backseat and out of the blue she said "I hate boys." Axel asked why? Kirsten replied by saying, "Cause they always talk like this," then she drops her voice and said "Hello". Then she piped in again saying "and it sounds really ugly".

At the end of school last year, McKay brought home a paper on "The Black Hen". She had to read the story and fill out some worksheets on it. It was about a Lutin (French elf) that did magical stuff for a lady and granted wishes and worked. Anyway on the worksheet, one of the questions were "At night, what would you want your Lutin to do for you?" She had written, "Make my mom and dad have more babies". I was astonished. I had no idea what had inspired this. The only thing I can possible think of is it was after the ultrasound and we had said this would probably be our last. I wonder what the teacher thought of that one though.

This is one of my favorites. We were eating dinner and Kirsten saw a picture come on our screensaver on the computer. It was of a couple years ago. Kirsten looked at me and said, "Katanya was still in heaven mom, huh?" I said "Yes". She said " Jesus wasn't ready to let her come down yet." I replied, "Nope." Then she looked at me and said, "When Jesus is ready to send them down, a delivery bird takes them and puts them in your stomach where they go." It wasn't a question. It was cute to hear her explanation and I wanted to keep it simple and not ask for trouble so I said, "Yep, how did you know?" And she just said, "I'm smart." Then today we were watching Dumbo and the part where they delivered Dumbo came on and she ran over to me and said, "See, this is how I know." I am still not going to say anything against the contrary though.

I love hearing little kids talking and hearing their explanations. It just amazes how much their little brains think.

I completely agree that kids say the funniest things. (Jeremy told me that Natalie appeared in my tummy. I agreed.)

Reminds me of a story I got in a Christmas card newsletter last year.

Friend of mine has two kids, a little boy and a little girl. They are at the airport, standing behind a businessman. Their son says "Gas just came out of that man's bottom!" And their daughter exclaims, "And I do NOT like that smell!."
