We all know kids say the darnedest things. There’s been TV shows revolved around just that. I know my son has cracked me up more times than I can count. And usually it’s when he’s just being so matter-of-fact.
I do wish I had written down all the zingers he comes up with (and do now), but I will never forget two “funnies” in particular. I’d love to share them with you, and hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
The “F” Word
When Cody was about 4-years-old he came into the kitchen where his father and I were sitting and asked us a question.
Cody: “How do you spell the “F” word?”
My husband and I looked at each other, and I remember thinking O.M.G! how does he even know that word? So I stayed as calm as I could and said:
Me: “What “F” word, sweetie?”
Cody: “You know, fagina.”
Yes, my son wanted to know how to spell vagina, which he thought was pronounced fa-gina. It took everything we had to not bust out laughing. I explained to him it was pronounced va-gina, told him to sound it out and spell it. Which he did.
We had recently had a talk about his penis (which we usually refer to as his “Pee-Tom”. He asked me if that’s what it was really called, and I told him the correct term. He asked if I had a penis and I, of course, told him girls had vaginas.
So I guess he had been thinking about it. I really wish I had a video camera ready and recorded it, just to see the look on our faces when he asked us how to spell the “F” word. 🙂
When Cody was in the first grade (he will be starting the 3rd-grade this coming school year), I had to pick up 200+ rolls of toilet paper for a “build a snowman” project at his school.
So we stopped at the Dollar General Store (since the rolls of toilet paper would be stuffed into a tube sock, generic, cheap TP would do) to pick it up. I loaded the cart with the toilet paper and as we were in the check-out line, Cody whispers, “Mommy, they’re going to think we poop a lot.”
It caught me off guard and I did literally lol. Ha. He’s a regular little comedian.
I can listen to kids talk all day; because they’re bound to say something funny. I shared a story once about my nephew naming a pet spider, Yeast Infection… that one had me on the floor.
I love to hear the funny things that kids say, so please tell us in the comments, some of the funny things your kids have said.
