Kids can be hilarious! How many times have you been trying to tell them off and an ‘out of the mouth of babes’ moment happens and you’re left trying to smother the laughter that just wants to bubble out of you?
My son is the best at it – he has some funny ways of putting things into words. This morning I asked him to hang some washing on the line and he came back at me with: ‘Mum, I can’t do that! You know I’m not trained in that area!’
We were talking about fishing and I asked Hayden if he could cast out. ‘No mum,’ he said very solemnly. ‘You need to be very skilled to do that and I’m not!’
The boss was ‘relocating’ a snake from out front lawn (right next to the dog) with a shot gun. Hayden was inside and when he heard the shot peered out of the window. ‘Are you testing the gun, Dad?’
My Nana was a great one for recording things that we said, as kids – I have a book full of them. A couple, which really make me laugh are:
‘My brother is very naughty,’ said my younger sister. ‘I can’t possibly love him today. I’ll try again tomorrow!’
‘Nana, I almost saw the twins today,’ laughed my cousin.
‘What do you mean, ‘nearly saw them’?’ asked Nana.
‘Well I saw ONE of them!’
