Conversation between my husband and my 16 year old:

*the dryer dings*

Hubby: Natalie, the dryer is calling your name.
Nat: Wow, Dad - you speak dryer?
Hubby: Yes, it's saying "Natalie, come get the clothes and fold them and put them away, expeditiously."
Nat: The dryer has a really advanced vocabulary.

Cute stories! Great thread!

My younger brother loves Pocahontas currently. He sings "sandwiches, sandwiches, baddabadda human!" [Smile]

He also thinks clothes that come out the dryer smell like donuts. I don't know where that comes from.

I wouldn't worry too much about precocious readers. I clearly remember hauling a 300 page book into my kindergarten class and refusing to read The Cat in the Hat because it was for babies... I was not very popular with my kindergarten teacher [Frown]

Last night Calvin (3) woke up just long enough to say, "Daddy, I want a treat." I went in to his room, by which point he was already drifting back to sleep. As he did, he said, "If you get me a treat...I will give you some...of my <yawn>...money...zzz"

My (almost) 2 year old has been having lots of fun lately learning various animal sounds. We have extended this to: "What does a dragon say?" "Roooooar!", "What does Mommy say?" "Happy!" (all the people seem to say happy), and my personal favorite "What does a pirate say?" "Arrrr!" (complete with little grimace and one closed eye). [Smile]

Ludosti, I think it says something for your family life that your 2-year-old believes that all people say "Happy!" [Smile]

[Big Grin] Thank you! It helps that she is an extremely happy person, so her happiness rubs off on us.

Haley recently saw "Frosty the Snowman," the animated special. Since then, she has been exclaiming "Happy BIRTH-day!" whenever she gets particularly excited. [Smile]

Hey, these could win pizza!

Incredible Pizza Company which is like Chunky Cheeses the way the Lord of the Rings movies are like the D&D Movies, is having a contest about kids saying silly things.

Chunky Cheeses? The one I can think of is cottage cheese. What others?

Lego: When Duplo was in your tummy, you couldn't eat anything.

Me: No, I could. He wasn't in my stomach, where the food goes. He was in another place, especially for babies to live in before they're born.

Lego: Your heart?

I told my 20 month old daughter the other day that her friends Ollie and Annie were coming over. She replied very hopefully "Ollie, Annie, Melmo(Elmo) come my house?" Apparently she figured if she just slipped that in there Elmo would have to come. When I told her no Elmo wasn't coming just Ollie and Annie she replied "aw man".

Maybe she was complimenting Ollie and Annie by putting them in the same category of wonderfulness as Elmo?

[Cry]

I suppose he meant "Chunky Cheese Whiz"? That can happen when exposed to air for too long.

When I was a kid.

Several years ago, when my younger cousins were only about five or six, Dylan had a cold and a scratchy throat. Instead of adopting the phrase "frog in my throat" he insisted he had a shark living there. You'd ask him about it, and he'd say something like, "No, he's still in there. I'm going to tell him he needs to go home soon."

Funny, funny kid. XD

As my 4 yo was trying to stay awake last night:

"The reason for my great sadness this day is because I have had no ice cream."

Ok, I need to add some from "my" kids, classes of 1st and 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade Czech kids, some with minimal English:

(4th grader)

"communism was when there was a big wall and you couldn't fly. And if you flied, you died."

(from a girl who had been learning English for about 6 weeks): "Pane Ucitel (Mr. teacher)... do you know Harry Potter? He's my favorite. He's a magic boy" (This so shocked me I was nearly speechless)

"I want can umm to duh... go baffroooomm!!"

"Pleaaasseee.... we go to gymmm???!!!"

(from Ondra, our resident tough guy 6 year old with arms crossed)

"No speak English! You crazy! Speak CZECH REPUBLIC!" or often: "Mr Lloyd.... you speak CZECH REPUBLIC, I no speak English please."

(third grade girls)

"Mr. Llooyyydd... do you loooove someooone????"

Me: "say it in English please..."

2nd grade girl: "muzume domu, takle ne mluvim anglictky" (We're going home, thus I don't speak English).

"eeeew. You mean, you and mommy do IT every year????"

I replied, "Mommy and Daddy will probably need alone-time again."

Now when we tell our kids we are going to have "alone-time", she makes gagging noises.

I was with my 3 year old niece yesterday, and this exchange took place:

Me: "Look at that big belly! Do you have a big belly?"
Zoe: "No, I have a little belly."
Me: "What about your bum? Do you have a big bum?"
Zoe: "No, I have a little bum. Mama has a big bum."

I teach fourth grade (9-11 year olds). There are three 4th grade classes at my school. We took a bit of an extended recess yesterday. You know . . . help to ward off state testing anxiety (it starts next week). The fact that it was a beautiful day didn't hurt none! We decided it was time to come in when two kids said they had learned their lesson, "If school was recess all day it would be b-o-r-i-n-g!" So, let's go learn!!
