You can't make this stuff up.

Boy Child, to Girl Child: Why is Snoopy so popular?

(They were watching, "A Charlie Brown Christmas". I know Snoopy is not Hannah Montana or anything)

Girl Child, thinking: It's his magical dancing.

Boy Child: Ohhhh.

Girl Child: Because his dancing? Amazing. I've never seen such a talented dog, in all my years.

Me, to Ginger: Who loves you? WHO LOVES YOU? Who thinks you are the best dog in the world?

Jason, to Ginger: Aww! Look at the puppy!

Me, to Jason: She's the best dog ever.

Jason, to Ginger: Look at the puppy! Such nice clean lines and good symmetry!

Me, to Jason: It's a really good thing we're married now. You totally couldn't pick up chicks with lines like that.

Jason: What?

Me: Can't you just say the dog is pretty?!!?!

Boy Child, to me: Mom? Are you sure you are my real mom?

Me: Positive. Why do you ask?

Boy Child: Well, this kid? I know? He said that you looked really young.

Me: Aww!

Boy Child, continuing: But I told him, "No! My mom is really, really, really old."

Me: Yeah, I'm going to need you to go read a book now.

Boy Child, to me: Mom? When I'm a grown adult can I live in your basement?

Me: Number one, we don't have a basement. Number two, no.

Boy Child: Well can I live in the house with you then?

Me: No. You'll need to have your own house with your own wife and your own children.

Boy Child: But mom, we can all just live here with YOU.

Girl Child, exasperated: Brother! For the love of God! You cannot live with mom!

Me: Thank you Girl Chi-

Girl Child: There are spiders in basements! Do you want to get bitten by a spider? SHEESH!

Me: I'll take it.

Your kids are almost as hilarious as you are! I don't blame Boy Child for wanting to stay with you, you seem like a great mom!!

P.S. I think that picture of you is beautiful. No wonder you liked it.

Bwahaha! Even your kids use the phrase "for the love of God"! I LOVE it! :)

Yeah, Boy Child can't live with you when he's grown up, because all of your bloggy friends are planning too.

And sigh, remember when WE thought 32 year olds were really, really old? When did we become the old ladies????

Kids really do say the darndest things, huh? I especially like the basement one!

Does the Snoopy comment having anything to do with Snoop Dog??

I still want to live at my mom's house! Indulge him. He obviously loves you THAT much.

And, what a flatterer he is. You are just SO old, lemme tell ya!!

I hope my girls grow up to be half as smart and funny as your kids. I'd be content with that, I really would.

Snoopy is JOE COOL after all (remember that?). But Boy Child and Girl Child are quickly becoming Joe and Jane Cool in my book.

Too funny. "In all my years..." I'm still laughing about that one.

Your daughter is so right on the basement thing. I have wolf spiders and they are gross. And they probably bite too. I wouldn't know, I've never let one come close to me.

So funny you guys....I bet you are all such a hoot to be around. Even Ginger.

Dreamer said...

Your family is great.

Can I come live in your basement?

Just joking. Really.

As OLD as I am, I watched that show last night too but the only conversation I had was with myself. My boys don't want to live with their Mom !!

Your kids = awesome

dennis said...

the imps! They are going to be waaaay too smart for your own good!

(which is really what we hope for before they are born, right?)

My two year old is obsessed with Snoopy. We are now a proud owner of an inflatable Snoopy on our yard - the things we do for kids. And is he is magical dancer - and house decorator.
