It’s the post you’ve all been waiting for (and when I say “all”, I mean you, Mom). Funny First! Isla and Aliana keep me laughing every day and hopefully this compilation of some of my favorite funny conversations and quotes from the past month will brighten your day too. Enjoy!
“Mommy I am grateful for the snack you are going to give me… Especially for the Starbursts… I hope.”
Well, we had been talking about being grateful. However no snack had been offered. Does thankfulness trump manipulation? Hmm.
Isla: I absolutely know that fairies are real!
Me: You do? How?
Isla: Because… You know… Disney says.
Can’t argue with logic.
Isla offered to take Aliana potty (which mostly consists of sitting with her while she sits on her little potty), and since I was doing dishes, I agreed. A few seconds later Isla ran to me and said, “It’s poopoo! She’s all yours!”
Must have learned that one from Daddy.
When Scott came home with a certain yearly temptation pushed by adorable little dealers in green vests (which I would like to point out, I had resisted), Isla was shocked,
“Why did they let daddy buy the scout cookies? He’s not a girl!”
And so we, being girls, were willing to take them off his hands… you know because they are GIRL Scout cookies after all.
Isla loves to ask all kinds of questions as she sits in the jogging stroller. On one of my long runs the topic turned to growing up. In response to her
interrogation curiosity, I explained that I am not growing bigger anymore because grown ups are down growing. However, I still do have birthdays and get older. Her response:
“Aw poor mommy. How sad you won’t get any bigger.” Then brightening a little “But at least you do get to get older!”
Oh joy. Silver fine lines and wrinkles… er I mean lining… silver lining.
“Birthdays are good because they help you get older.”
Or is that why they’re bad? Perspective.
“I like how soft the bread Grammy and Grampy have is. But it’s okay Mommy, I like your bread with the nutritions in it too.”
Apparently Isla was listening as I watched the News and when the Weather alert came on:
“Tomato warning? Oh yay! I hope there’s avocados too!”
Well that does sound delightful.
Poor Aliana has a cold, here is Isla’s take on it:
“She kind of talks cute when she’s sick, doesn’t she?”
Another silver lining.
“I crying because I be hitting you, and that’s not vewy nice.”
After dinner I went to get a paper towel and told Aliana I needed to clean her (and her high chair) up. When I got back, she smiled and said,
“It’s okay mama! I eated all my mess… see?”
And she had.
“Mommy, you stop that right now or I will kiss you on purpose!”
Do you think I stopped?
“I dwant [drank] all my energy sauce [V8].”
And so did I, but I call mine coffee.
“Oh no, Isla is throwing up. And Isla is throwing down, oh no.”
“Hey Loveyboo, put me down!”
Then she proceeded to call me by that new nickname for the rest of the day. Where does she get this stuff?
Aliana has a cold, and her nose has been running non-stop.
Me: What are we going to do about your poor little nosy?
Aliana: Put a diapy on my butt, and then put a diapy on my wittle nosy?
Isla: Or maybe we could put a band-aid on her face to keep the snot in?
They are full of helpful suggestions. I took neither.
Your turn. Share a funny story with me. Do it (or I will kiss you on purpose)!
