It gets worse, doesn't it?

When I picked Boy and Girl Child up from Tae Kwon Do they were very animated and excited and could not wait to tell me what happened today.

Apparently this Boy who is very tall hit this other boy in the face during dodge ball. Tall boy threw the ball really hard. Boy Child's best friend, Friend Child, TOLD Tall boy not to throw so hard, but he did it anyway.

Tall boy's throw broke Ball-in-face boy's glasses.

A piece of the glass (okay, it's probably plastic. Are any children's glasses actually made with actual glass?) went into Ball-in-face boy's EYE.

Much shrieking commenced.

I was appropriately upset given that I do not know any of the children in this particular scenario with the exception of Friend Child and he wasn't really involved. Since Boy Child wears glasses I said, "Boy Child, next time you play dodge ball, be sure you take your glasses off. I don't want you to get hurt."

And he said, "Mom. I took my glasses off? And then I couldn't see the ball? And Mr. Edwards threw the ball? And it hit me in the cubes."






MY TEN-YEAR OLD SON JUST REFERRED TO HIS NUTSACK.




OH. MY. GOD.

Denise said...

Chick,
i am here to tell you that it just gets worse from here on out. Read my blog and some of the shit that my boys say and do.

Angie said...

Your kids are too much fun!

"hit me in the cubes..."

At least he didn't say "hit me in the peabody."

That? Would have been hysterical!

Kellie said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

You tell Boy Child that he just totally cracked me up and today? I SO needed that :)

frannie said...

I'm going to start saying I got hit in the cubes... hilarious!

Kim said...

That right there is why I love teaching 10 year old boys. They say the most hysterical things and don't even realize why I am snorting my coffee through my nostrils.

AndreAnna said...

That is hysterical! I'm still laughing about the "milkshake" thing from earlier in the week. I've had that song stuck in my head and have been shaking my big ol' pregnant ass to it while it plays IN MY HEAD. yeah, makes me look really cool.

I have to steal "cubes." My husband will love it.

Bethany said...

Cubes!! I think I just peed myself laughing!

Daphne said...

Cubes, lol. That's a new one for me.

anglophilefootballfanatic said...

With those two? Anything is possible.

beautyishere said...

CUBES? That is hilarious! Bwahaha. Is that what the children are calling them nowadays? Honestly? hahaa. Sorry, it's just really funny.

Kimberly said...

Ah that boy child! Gotta love him!

Hope the kid with the eye injury is eye. Incredible healing power in the eye, but if that glass went into the area of the cornea over his pupil...very worrying!

Lou said...

Hi... I'm Lou and my friend J gave me the link to your page. Allie tagged me and since I am new to this whole blog thing I needed 7 people to tag. So tag... if you read that is awesome, if not thanks for your time :)!

tiger lamb girl said...

And he referred to them as his CUBES.
LMAO.

Captain Steve said...

Cubes? That's new. And yeah, boy child is right, dodgeball without glasses could make for a very uncomfortable day.

Catwoman said...

I'm absolutely horrified about that poor boy with glasses, because getting something in my eye? Is LITERALLY my biggest fear ever. I really hope he's ok and shudder...

But poor boy child makes me howl. I hope his cubes are ok.

The Huffs said...

Cubes is so freaking funny. And I will point out the obvious -- one of the reasons it's so hilarious, is because generally they aren't cubed; they are round. Mostly. LOL

Kat said...

LOL. Cubes.

kellyo75 said...

Cubes? Never heard of them referred to as cubes. Funny Boy you have there.

Jenski said...

You should enter your kids in some sort of stand up comedy for kids competition. They would totally win.

SJ said...

HA! Too funny...

EE said...

I'm gonna have to steal that one.
"Cubes"...I love it!

Rachel said...

Not only did he refer to his nutsack, he called them "cubes"!!

Mousie said...

Supremely late comment, but I've been reading in backwards order through your (fantastic!) archives, on the recommendation of that blog review site. I had to come back to this one because I really need to know if you are saying the gym teacher beaned your kid in the balls...?

"Cubes" will go down in history, but the idea that it was the gym teacher, who might actually have been aiming(?), was disturbuing enough to compel me to comment. Anyway. Carry on.
