Geeze, the funniest, well let's face it, most of our kids have said some pretty funny things in their lives, but I think our daughter takes the cake: she was maybe 3 or so and asked me one morning: why when I wear my prettiest nightgowns to bed they are inside out the next morning? She also wanted to know why my bottom was so big it went over the side of the toilet and hers was so small it fell in?

Default Comedian at Large

Well Colin did it again saying one of those gems that just comes naturally. As I relate keep in mind the effectiveness of TV advertising. Norm is Colin's dad. Betty's (Norms wife/Colin's mom) Van was due to be replaced because it had seen its day. He pulled up goes into house and asks Colin and Matt Colin's brother if they would like to take a ride in the new Van. Colin at Play stops looks outside at Van then his Dad then the van again and then Betty and simply states "Did you get a carfax report". Betty and Norm just cracked up saying yes honey We got a carfax.

Mine is a Grand kid "did" rather than said. At two he Facetimed his grandma while sitting on the potty. His mom heard him talking from the other room and asked who he was talking to. She was surprised to see grandma on the iPad.

Client story: I was in my office with the parents of a 3-year old son named Bobby. They had brought their son with them to my office while we filled out some paperwork. This took a little time and the son was getting restless. He began walking around my office looking for something to play with and he put his hand down the front of his pants. His mom pipes up: "Bobby, don't do that. It's not nice." Bobby replied: "why not mom? Daddy does it." His father's face turned beat red.

I recall many years ago when my brother told an off-color joke at dinnertime, my younger sister exclaimed "you cant tell jokes like that in front of mixed up company!"


Then there was the time my wife got a bad color treatment that left her hair a brilliant reddish copper color. My son thought he was being nice when he told her that "it looks pretty! Like Bozo the Clown."

My husband traveled quite a lot when the kids were growing up. Sometimes for a month or two at a time overseas. Back in that time you were allowed to go right up to the gates at the airport and the kids loved going to pick daddy up. One time, he came out and my 4 yr old daughter yelled out , "You'll never guess who has been sleeping in your bed when you were away?" Many faces turned, smiled, smirked and I said, very clearly so all can hear...YOUR DAUGHTER!!!!

Default Close cut - the hard way

Yesterday I was driving about when in Lansdowne PA I observed a middle aged woman cutting her curb grass with a pair of scissors. No they were scissors. I commented to my grandson that that is the hard way to do it. As always with his divine Wisdom he adds: "Yeah!! And she is probably wondering why its taking so long". Pretty funny.

When my daughter was about 5, she was helping set the table for dinner. Her dad asked me what I wanted to drink, she replied "Mom will have pop, you want pop, Mom?" I said "No, I think I'll have milk". She then said matter-of-factly, "Sh*t, Mom'll have milk".

The kids wanted me to get them another one of those Barbie electric cars...

I asked my daughters if they thought money grew on trees.

Their answer?

Dad, what is money made out of? Paper, and where does paper come from? Trees...

Just went back to see family, and I took chocolates as a gift to family. My nephew's kids were rather shy with me -- which I expected, as they are that age, and my sister, their grandmother, is about the bestest playmate ever, so when she is there it's very much grandma time... I didn't push them, but allowed them to come to me.

As I left, I got hug and kiss from one, but the older one was pretty standoffish. The next day we took off for the other sisters.... and the day after my sister got a call from the grandkids...they were happy to find out I was there, too, and both yelled for Aunty Tally to "Bring more candy!!"

At the end of the vacation, I got hugs from both kids....so chocolate works.
