Going through some of my journal entries and some older Facebook posts, I came across some very funny stories. Oh boy, out of the mouth of babes. You just never know what they’re going to say. Reading these, made my heart and face smile! Out of the mouth of my husband- well, sometimes I think he needs a taste of his own medicine and probably a kick in the pants. You’ll see what I mean! 🙂
Aaron, my 11 year old, gets in the car after school was sharing his day of school. He says they had to go around the room and say if….(let me pause by saying that when Aaron shares anything, everyone in our family is always afraid of what embarrassing things he’s going to exploit. Aaron just loves to tell a story. The more embarrassing the better. So I was already holding my breath) Okay, so they had to go around the room and say if anyone in their family has helped out their city or country. It was a day of reflecting on 9/11 and noticing those who help serve our country.
One of his friends dad was a fire fighter, another dad was in the war, one mom was a nurse. Aaron’s turn comes up and he says my mom is making a difference in the economy! She’s a couponer! Then the conversation broke out and some of his friends went on to say, “You should see how many Powerades she can get and I saw her on the news.” Another said, “Aaron’s mom gets the best snacks.” Another said, “Aaron’s mom helped my mom find good deals on Christmas presents last year and my mom wasn’t grumpy!” Well, I’m glad to say it wasn’t an embarrassing moment, I was quite proud. Aaron made me very proud.
I’m still am laughing when I hear what the kids had to say. Out of the mouths of babes! I do hope the teacher was able to bring the conversation back to where it was suppose to be quickly!
My ten year old son, Camden, tells me today that he does not believe in Santa Claus and then proceeds to tell me that the WWE wrestling is real. HUH !!!!!!!!!.
Olyvia, my only daughter, asks if she can watch television in my bedroom. I asked her what was wrong with her TV and she tells me it’s broken. I go upstairs to look at it, and in seconds realize the remote is broken. She laughs and says she does not want to get up and change the channels.
I had a coupon class last night……..I hear in the morning that the babysitter and the kids watched a Ben Franklin cartoon episode. I was impressed! A half-hour later I’m in the car bringing the kids to school and I think I hear Aaron say Beavis. Brock, my oldest, has a smile on his face. I’m home thinking about it and it bothers me. I look at the TV On Demand history and guess what—– There’s Ben Franklin alright, in a Beavis and Butthead episode. You bet this babysitter is going to hear from me!!!! That’s the last time my HUSBAND is watching the kids!!!!!!! or at least I’ll be blocking channels now before I leave..UGH!!!
The next day I see this on my husband’s Facebook page:
Lesson learned…. My wife went out Tuesday night and I was the responsible parent and I cooked them a nice dinner and provided them with entertainment for the evening. We watched Beavis and Butthead reruns. My kids were laughing from beginning to end. She somehow found out and IT WAS NOT PRETTY! But there was a lesson learned. Don’t make plans at night, Honey. Stay home with us !!!!!!!!!!
The women on his Facebook page were saying things like, Paul, you should no better. The men were saying, I’ve seen all of those, they’re hysterical! I bet your boys laughed all night.
Here’s another story I read on my darling husband’s Facebook page:
I went to play poker last night with the guys. I came home at midnight, which is actually early, and there was an empty bottle of wine on the counter. So, I think to myself, Wow, I might actually get me a little something something. So I run up and get all dolled up and get to the bedroom and I pull the covers and see the flannel pjs, the one’s that have Christmas polar bears on them. And then it hit me. Four children home alone with mom. Dads out . Ah-oh, the kids must have gotten on her nerves and the devil showed up. Then it was stop, drop, and roll. I will tell you Seal Team 6 had nothing on me . I was crawling on the floor trying to get out without waking her. I was like a ninja in the night. So after sleeping in another room I wake up in the morning and find out that she did not like the wine so she dumped it down the drain. What the heck was i thinking! End of story!
I know ladies, you must be wondering how we can be married for almost 20 years. The answer, just laugh a lot!
UNTIL, that is, you read this……
Got the snowblower started …now all I need to do is get my wife to use it when the blizzard is done.
Another reason we can be married for almost 20 years, I just ignore the child nonsense in him that shows its ways on Facebook. 🙂
I hope some of our family giggles, made you giggle too! Oh, how I love my family! Stay tuned for part 2 soon.
