Nonsense from the Heart

Dream, Interrupted January 12, 2012

Filed under: Cheers,Kids — Coco Bean @ 12:38 pm

Almost every weekday morning, I am required to rouse K1 to proceed to eat breakfast, get ready and do what needs to be done to make our way out of the house.  This dark morning…

Me:  Wake up, wake up.  It’s a beauuutiful morning. (I’ve been trying to start the day off on a positive note for the kiddos.  Because you know I’m all positive and happy in the morning…Or any other time for that matter. 😐 )

K1:  I don’t want to.  I want to finish my dream.

A few minutes pass.

Me:  Come on, get up.  Breakfast is ready.

K1:  I’m not done with my dream yet!

Oh joy.  Can’t wait to see what else will be used as an excuse.

 

Butt Talk September 20, 2011

Filed under: Cheers,Kids — Coco Bean @ 12:00 pm

Lately, been hearing a lot of butt talk.  Not sure why, but it’s sure funny.

One morning, overheard this conversation between MSO and K1.

MSO: “Hey, you’re not wearing your underwear.”

K1: “I don’t care.  My butt slaps are clean.”

And one night K1, while pointing to butt cheeks, expressed “These are your butt slaps, you know.” 

Kids…

(Disclaimer:  We do not slap butts for discipline or any other reason!)

 

High Pressure Lessons September 9, 2011

Filed under: Cheers,Kids — Coco Bean @ 9:42 pm

One morning I was talking with #1, who from now on will be referred to as K1 (Kid 1), about school. I asked K1 how the teacher taught them how to do a certain thing. K1 answered, “She shows us how to do it on the injector.” I was not sure if I had heard what K1 said correctly. So while holding my laugh in, I asked again. “She shows us how to do it on the injector,” K1 impatiently repeated.

#1: “What is that purple thing?”
Me: “I’m not sure. Is it the aurora borealis? It’s some kind of wonderful thing.”
#1: “I think it’s the Grand Nemula.”
Me: “Oh, the Grand Nebula?”
#1: “Yeah.”
Me: “How do you know about the Grand Nebula?”
#1: “Little Einsteins.”

Judo Thoughts June 26, 2011

Filed under: Kids,Sports — Coco Bean @ 7:00 pm

This was thoughts from last year that I found written on a scratch paper.

Me: “Do you want to go judo?”

#1: “Noo, I don’t want to because people are going to beat me up, and I don’t like that.”

Me: “Awww.”

Pause for 15 seconds…

#1: “What’s judo?”
