I have so much fun with this carnival that Mary hosts at Not Before 7. Max (6) is such a funny boy, he’s always cracking me up.
These are some of the things he has said to me recently:
1. He pronounced Wisconsin as “Unconscious”
“Is Unconscious in the United States?”
2. When you answer his request with the phrase “in a little while” he will run to set the microwave timer for “a little while.”
A little while, according to his expertise, is exactly 9 minutes, 00 seconds.
3. Max has one thousand fifty-five girlfriends. Some are cartoons.
4. One of those real girlfriends is Grace, who he is going to marry. He told me that he is saving up for a diamond ring.
Max: “How much does a diamond ring cost?”
Me: “Oh, at least $5,000” (sidenote: I found out Grace has much more expensive taste than I thought)
Max: “Well, I’m going to buy her a ring from the grocery store. It only costs a dollar.”
What are your kids (or nieces, nephews, neighbors, gnomes) saying this week? Do tell and keep me laughing…please! I’ve hit the 7 week mark with this broken foot and it still is such a pain. I just survived 4 days of single parenting while Mike was on a youth ski trip and I’m going a little crazy here.
I’ve been in this boot way too long!
But at least it doesn’t take much to make me laugh these days!
(thanks to my friend Deb for the idea to customize my boot with scrapbooking letters)
