Things kids say

From time to time I'll be posting things that my kids say because as you may know, I don't scrapbook and I'm a terrible journaler. (I think I made up that word) I have four kids and three of them are girls so I pretty much have an endless supply of good material for this blog. Don't worry, though, I have lots of other important things to blog about. Today just isn't one of those days.

On Homeschool vs Public:

(This is one of those conversations that really boosts my confidence in the decision I made to homeschool my kids. (Note: I may or may not have said the things I was accused of. I don't remember. If I did, I'm sure I didn't mean it.))

April (5yo): Mom, remember when we drove by the school and you said it was junky? 

Me: I don't remember saying that.

April: Remember, I said I wanted to go back to my old school and you said oh, you don't want to go back to that junky old school? 

Me: I don't remember using those words exactly, why?

April: Well, I was just in my room with Blaise, and she can read already and I can't and so I was thinking well, maybe that school's not so junky after all.

Me: (sigh)

On favorite colors:

Autumn (8yo): Hey, what's everyone's favorite color?

April: I like puwple.

Autumn: I like blue.

Anna (9yo): I like cayenne. 

Me: (perking up) Oh, Anna, that's a great color. You mean, the rusty red color?

Anna: No, it's not red at all.

Me: Oh, wait, do you mean cyan?

Anna: Yeah, that's it. I got the c sounds mixed up.

On future professions:

Me: What do y'all want to be when you grow up?

Autie: I want to be a massage therapist.

Anna: I want to work in the reptile section at the zoo so I can bring home a snake and scare John.

April: I want to be in karate.

Thanks for posting these Pam. I love to hear what the kids are saying. It cracks me up. I miss them. Can't wait for Christmas.

I'm laying in bed giggling at your blog while you are painting the walls at my house. What's wrong with this?
