Don’t you just love children, ok they can wear you out, drive you mad and spend money like it grows on trees but you can always guarantee at some point your children will make you laugh out loud.
Whilst in my local library recently I chuckled to myself when I overheard the conversation between the librarian and a little boy who was visiting with his Dad, it went something like this:-
Little boy approached the librarian to return his books.
Librarian: Good morning young man, what can I do for you today?
Little boy looks at the librarian like she has two heads and then turns to his Dad;
Little boy: I’m not a young man am I Daddy? I’m a little boy!! And then he tutted!!
I thought this was hilarious, especially if you could see the look of disgust on his face.
And then it reminded me of an incident with Curly when he about 4 years old, he was playing quite happily in the garden he got some dirt in his eye. He came running over with his hand over his eye shouting “my eye, my eye”. So I did the obvious thing and checked his eye to see what was in it but it must have been a speck of dust because I couldn’t see anything. I calmly told him to “blink lots” at which point he cried even more – I asked him what was wrong, was it really sore??? He stopped crying long enough to blurt out “you said I’ve got blink rots!! Does that mean I’m going to go blind?”. Bless him I did laugh but eventually when I’d stopped laughing I explained again that he needed to keep blinking to get the dirt out of his eye and that there was no need to worry, he was not going to go blind!
Please leave your comments – I’d love to know the funny things your children have said!!
