Kids say the funniest things...

Wednesday, September 29, 2010
"Mom, why aren't we moving?"
"Oh, sweetheart...we're sitting in traffic."
"Can you back up?"
"I wish. But there's a huge truck behind me."
"And if you backed up into him it would break his truck?"
"And then he couldn't drive it anymore?"
"And then he'd probably say oh, shit."

Wise man.
Good to see a new post, no matter how brief.

Ha. That is so my future. Here's hoping that's the worst our truck driver would say.

I read this to Stephen as we were stuck in the car for a too long drive home from Manhattan. We loved it. Thanks for the laugh.

@Claudia - Thanks. I'm working on getting the thoughts running through my brain reigned in and on the screen.

@mom2boy - I have really learned to control my mouth (around my kids, anyway.) The worst I say is "son of a..." or "faaaahhhh." D, on the other hand, lets the "shit" slip pretty regularly and we have a very loud and obnoxious neighbor who curses up a storm every time he stops us to talk. So I am amazed that it took this long for the first bad word to escape E's lips.

@caramama - It was so hard not to laugh and laugh and laugh.

@AlisonL - Number 1: thanks for posting and linking to your blog. I had no idea...
Number 2: I'm sure that knowing D so well makes the story much funnier. This little acorn did not fall far from the tree.
Number 3: D says to say hi to you and Stephen and that he loves and misses you. :) We wish we lived closer to you guys.
