The Funny Pages

More often than not, my little B's crack me up! I know every parent thinks their children are the funniest in the world, and I'm no exception to that rule. That being said, I thought I would share some of their funnier comments from the summer.

Allow me to set the stage for you... When we were in Long Beach, I mentioned that I needed to buy some peanuts. Brady gets a little uncomfortable when it comes to talk of pooh, and I love to tease him and get his goat by talking about it as much as possible. Ironically, I used to be just like him, but I've found that after changing countless diapers, there is a lot to be learned from pooh. And if you don't believe me, then you need to look no farther than Dr. Oz. Anyway, after I shared that I needed to buy some peanuts, Brady asked the all important "why?" So I explained that I was feeling constipated from the travel, that traveling always makes me constipated, and I needed some peanuts for fiber.

So time goes by, and last week when Brailey was making her Tooth Fairy House, she used a peanut for some food and the shell for a bed. She quickly reassured me I had nothing to worry about. "Don't worry, Mom, I'm only taking one. You'll have plenty for your constipation." 

A few days ago, I tweaked my wrist on something and said "Ow!" And Brailey said, "Man, Mom, I hope you didn't rip your ligaments!" I assured her that I had not, and Britt chimed in with his two cents, saying, "Yah, you can't rip your ligaments in your wrist, because they are LEG-a-ments. That can only happen in your leg."
And last but not least, one day a few weeks ago, when we were going for food, Brady asked me where I wanted to eat, and I said, "I don't care, wherever you want to. You pick." Britt piped up from the backseat, "Awwww Dad, let's just eat where Mom wants to eat, because YOU KNOW, if the mom's not happy, nobody in the family is happy." He's heard this from me before, but it was still funny to hear him say it all on his own...

Sadly, time always seems to fade these funny moments. Thank goodness for this blog to document them forever and ever!


  1. THIS was just what i needed this morning - SO FUNNY keep writing these down they are precious seriously!!!! i love that she was nervous about taking from your constipation peanuts how thoughtful... and what a wise boy you have already knowing about legaments and keeping "the mom" happy....
