Who Needs Therapists? Just Have Kids!

Remember that show that Bill Cosby used to host, "Kids say the Darndest Things?" Seriously, they really do! If I could just bottle up my little one's funny sayings and stories up and pull them out of when someone is having a bad day I could make a killing. I love it because kids don't even know that what they are saying is hilarious, (until the roar of laughter) they are just speaking what's on their mind...with absolutely no filter.

A little background info before I share my silly little story with you. My (almost 3, OMG I cant' believe that) son is potty trained except for naps and overnight. The following story let's me know that he's actually listening to me while I ramble on about what we're trying to do at nighttime....wow, who knew!


While on vacation last week we headed out to dinner and this is what was overheard....


Me- "Hey, let's work on opposites."


Little Man- "Ok!"


Me- "What's hard?"


Little Man- "Table!"


Me- "What's soft?"


Little Man- "This!" As he gestures to the padding on the booth


Me- "What's wet?"


Little Man- "Water!"


Me- "What's dry?"


Little Man- "Pull- Ups!!!"


Enter fits of laughter from Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie and myself!


Well, my little man ate that up like a bowl of candy and it's now his new favorite joke. So if you see a little kid at a store asking you "What's dry?" You better answer pull-ups so he can give you the cheesiest smile, longest, silliest, made-up laugh ever. Just like he is right over there which is completely unrelated but it would look quite a bit like that minus the frosting!


Let me know what your kids have said lately that has cracked you up. Feel free to comment or write your own post with a link back. Happy ICLW!

My babies are in the womb, so it will be a while until they're talking.

The combo of your son's foam finger t-shirt, beater in hand, and frosting grin is priceless!

That is so frickin CUTE! I think my favorite thing my little guy said was "When the sun comes up, it is sunny. So, when the moon comes up it is moony."
