Kid's Say The Darndest Things!

When it was on air I loved watching Bill Cosby on the show “Kid’s Say The Darndest Things”, it was always good for a laugh. Lucky for me now that I have kids of my own they provide in home entertainment with all the funny things they say! 

In fact, Many years ago when my son started talking I started a little journal that I keep to record those funny moments. I figure we can look back on them and laugh when they are older, either that or I will have some great stories to tell at their weddings!

Here are some recent Things that my kids have said that in some cases literally left me speechless:

 1.  Karensa and I were having a conversation recently about babies and we talked about how her and her brother had been babies in my belly. She will sometimes point at my belly and joke that I have a baby in there. This day we happened to talk about how I won’t be having any more babies. She looked at me and said “Don’t worry Mom, soon I will have babies and you can hug them”…At five years old that “soon” is a long ways away my dear!! She has also been telling people this week that she is going to grow up, have babies and then be a firefighter.
