Quick Quips

From the mouths of my kids...

"What's wrong with girls? They don't even have a sense of humor!"

"Which part of Utah does Jesus live at?"

Curly: "Go a-way! Yer ruining my yife!"

"You're wrong. Farts ARE funny!"

All-a-Boy: "I remember back when I was a kid..."

"Jobs are totally un-fun."

"Fingers are NOT humans!"

ElemenoB: "Could you move, please?"
Coolister: (Waves his arms in the air for a few seconds while remaining in place.) "How'd you like those moves?"

"Your breath smells like boogers."

Me, calling downstairs: "Who's down there?"
Curly: "Nobody."
Me: "Then who's answering me?"
Curly: "No-body. Stop tawking to me, Mom!"

I love them all! I especially got a good giggle from your geriatric All-a-Boy!

Amy said...

Oh my gosh! So cute! And you have to do that interview with Mike. And if you do please, please, please post it!!! See you on Saturday!!!

Shannon said...

Adorable! I often wish I had taken actual note of all of the witty things my kids have uttered over the years...what a coffee table book THAT would make!!

Kelly said...

My favorite was the one about where Jesus lives. He probably lives in Payson. I am just guessing.

I am glad you brought things back to earth for us with the comment about farts : )

Anaise said...

My absolute favorite is Curly's! She must be a twin to my Alyssa.

The funny things they say get me through the un-funny things they say.

Those were definitely worth reading. :)

Your blog is great. Love those!

Gerb said...

Rachel- Kids can be pretty funny, can't they? And yes, it was great to finally meet you in person!

Shannon- Thanks. Who needs TV when we've got kids to keep us entertained?

Mike- Thanks, I am flattered.

Natalie- He says it all the time, too. It was even funnier when he was 4 and would say it.

Amy- Thank you! And yes, see you Saturday - rain or shine!

Shannon- I used to keep a notebook full of them. I decided to use the blog for it instead now. They crack me up all the time.

Kelly- Thanks for reading and commenting! And you know, no matter what you say, I don't think I could move to Payson.

Anaise- Agreed! I'd go insane if my kids didn't keep me laughing.

Mamasooz- Thank you! I love when you leave comments.

I love the 'move please' quote the best…also, AAB's comment on 'back in the day.' He's given a couple of doozies in class, too.

Farscaper said...

LOL!!! That was GREAT!! I have several favorites... "Who's down there?" "Nobody"

We have a similar group of sillies over here. I agree.. the funny comments sure make it easier to trod through the unfun moments.

The latest from my 3 year old. "Mom, you're my age."

Laughing so hard. These are awesome.
