Doesn't have to be your kids - could be you yourself when you were a kid.

Here's one. I don't know if it was me or my cousin, we'll assume my cousin. So she's about three or four at a park or on a bus in Buffalo and she goes up to a black lady and points to her skin and says something like "Oh, you need to go home and take a bath, you're all dirty." I think the lady was understanding and explained that different people have different skin color.


This one happened a couple days ago. My three and half year old asked one of our other kids' mom (who is very overweight) "Do you have a baby in there?"

At a Thanksgiving dinner table in front of DH's family my son announced: "Whenever I wake up in the middle of the night I can hear Mommy and Daddy's bed squeaking. Real loud."

My FIL, bless him, said, "Glad to hear it. There's too much %$@* divorce in this family!"

My son said at the gym the other day, walking with my husband...
"Daddy I hope my weiner gets bigger like yours one day because mine's tiny and yours is big but it has too much hair".

I thought I was going to hyperventilate from laughing so hard.

My son is 3.

One of my boys (he was about 5) saw a large lady with very tight stretchy pants and went up to her and asked "How can I get bumpys all over my legs like yours? You look just like the Rockmonster" I about died. The lady was very offended.

When one of my older boys was little, he overheard older cousins talking about "buckle bunnies". We were at the rodeo and he was asked to help announce some of the events. The announcer asked him what he was enjoying most about the rodeo and he said to the entire town "I like watching buckle bunnies, I'm gonna try and catch one after the rodeo."

My favorite story is about my Mother when she was a little girl. She grew up in South Boston, it was back then a very, very Irish Catholic community. Everyone knew everyone and lived in apartment buildings together.

Church was an event and she was 4 and dressed in her proper dress, coat and hat and her parents dressed to the nines and very proper. My Nana was all about appearances and being polite.

The man who lived next door to them was singing a solo in the choir that apparenty outlasted my mothers patience. She promptly stood up in the pew turned around and bellowed "Would you shut up?" followed promptly by a "Please" sat back down and folded her arms.

We were in line at the produce store (long line). MissFR (3 at the time) is horsing around with MrFR and falls into his crotch, and puts her hands out to break her fall.

She stands up and announces in the loudest voice possible, "Daddy, I grabbed your penis!" That was one mortified Daddy.

PS - what's a buckle bunny? (and should I already know that?)

Kind of like a "Badge Bunny" only for rodeo buckles. When one is a rodeo goer/participant, one earns belt buckles. The buckle bunnies are the female hangers on....Rodeo groupies so to speak.

I used to teach school...believe me, you would DIE if you KNEW what your kids tell the teacher! (I will never tell!) But...

Johnny, age 7, "Why do we have to wash hands ALL the time at school? My Dad never washes his hands after going to the bathroom." Needless to say, I did not shake hands with him on parent night!

Krystal, age 6, "My Mom is SO weird. She is always telling Daddy "harder", do you think she is bad, and Daddy is spanking her, and she wants it harder? " Well, let's leave that between Mommy and Daddy.

Believe me, I could go on and on...and on...you don't even know how much teachers know!
