I am a writer for the Examiner. I do lots of serious parenting issues and articles. Howevver, I thought it would be fun to do some light hearted ones to share the joy of parenting. I would love to hear stories about things your children did that made you laugh.

I am thinking about including one about my 2 year old son who recently came up to me, gave me a big wet kiss, and then said " Cry Mom, cry!" I asked him what he was talking about, and he said to me an old Mother Goose song, "Georgie Porgie pudding and pie, kissed the girls,and made them cry." I started cracking up laughing. Boys are such literal creatures. :)

I would love to hear any funny stories, and if I have permission to include yours in my article let me know. Thanks, Beth Turnbull

My son, bless is crazy little heart, made an entire room full of adults cry laughing.



We're at my in-laws for New Years dinner and my son (recently turned 4) was playing with his aunt (recently turned 6) and for some reason my son had been saying that EVERYTHING "smells like dirty socks". He picks up one of his aunt's toys and proceeds to tell the whole room that it smelled like dirty socks. I finally asked him: "You have been saying everything smells like dirty socks. Where did you get that from?"

He turns and looks at everyone and tells me "my nipples".

23 years ago i was in my car with my then 2 year old daughter, she asked me where we were going, at this i said we were going to aunties, as we were on the way to my sisters for a visit, she got quite upset, i said what on earth is the matter,to which she replied quite seriously "we can't go to aunties,because i've only got one aunty !!" I just adore the simple logic of our childrens minds.

My 5 year old daughter Brenna spent the night at grandma's house. The next day when grandma met up with us to her back off she said: Brenna was talking about how popular Ana was at school so I asked her, " are you popular too?" Brenna promptly replied. "No, Ana's popular. I'm beautiful." I was shocked at first but I still had to laugh. Guess I don't have to worry about Brenna's self-confidence.

All 3 of my kids are chatterboxes! When my youngest was 3, we were riding in the car and she was trying to talk and my other 2 were talking over her, Shoved her hand up in the air and said "excuse me, I'm talking here!!" It was too funny, but the other 2 stopped talking

My boys 5 & 2 were pretty close before my oldest started kindergarden. Now Mason (27m) asks for "his Kaiden" all day long and really looks up to him. However, Kaiden now thinks he is "big" and started to help Mason more than play with him.

Tonight Mason woke up and tried to put some clothes on (something he's never done). He snuck into his brothers room saying "Kaiden help, Kaiden please help." My husband went up to find Mason completely tangled up in his shirt with arms stuck up in the air. Trying to wake up Kaiden so he could help him get dressed.



I went to pick my son up from preschool one day last year and found him trying to kiss a girl behind the teachers back. I tried to explain that you only kiss people in your family and that we could buy chocolate kisses for her. He thought about that and said 'Nah I'll just give her real kisses."

A couple days later I droped him off and 5 girls immediately latched to him and followed him around class, trying to touch him and sit next to him while he was trying to get away. The teacher had to put all the girls in their own sections so Kaiden could chose which one he wanted to play with without getting smothered.



Another time we were talking about babies. My 5yr old says he's going to have lots of babies. I told him "you have to get married first" he said "EEeeww I'm not getting married, I'm just going to have babies. I'll live with you and let you take care of them!"



Sorry couldn't pick just one. Kids are full of cute stuff.

i have a few:
one day i put my daughter (13.5 mos at time: 14 mos today) on time out in her pack and play with no toys because she was being naughty. i was in my office which is right across from living room and she looks at me and says "baby mad mama". i think ii laughed for ten mins!!!
then shortly after that my dad was having sausage for dinner (we were at his house), and the rest of us were having hot dogs. he says "grandma you put my sausage in with hotdogs" so my baby said "sausage" the way she said it was so cute.
also if she knows shes done something naughty she will look at me say "oh-oh" and throw her head between her hands as if trying to hide
when she does something shes proud of (putting toys in box, or going potty on potty chair) she will wait for you to clap and then she will clap and laugh
just yesterday i was folding laundry shortly before bed. she was playing with her baby doll. she lays the baby in the basket, covers it up, pulls a book out and opens it pretending to read (baby jabber) closes book tries to sing kisses her doll and says "goodnight mama love" which is pretty much our bedtime routine except she didnt pray before "goodnight mommy loves you"
and my ultimate favorite: when i get home from school or work she will push whoever is watching her away (grnadma, daddy, or daycare) open her arms and walk as fast as possible to me and hug me

My favorite funny memory of my son Dragen (22months) would have to be a conversation he had with Daddy.

Dad: Are you being a good boy?

Dragen: Yeah!

Dad: You promise you've been a good boy?

Dragen: ......No

My daughter (then 4 years old), and at the time, she was learning about how plants grew in preschool. We were driving down the road one day, and she said, "Mommy, do you know why that tree isn't growing?" I asked her why... she said, "Cause it has no water." I then asked her, "Do you know what makes us grow?" And she replied, "Birthdays... DUH!!!"

At about age five, we were eating dinner at a restaurant that had music playing... and a particular song came on. She said "I like this song!" I said, "So do I... you must have good taste." She replied very seriously, "Why, cause you been biting on me and stuff?" It was sooo funny =)

When one of my boys was 3 we went swimming with his female cousin who was also 3. In the changing room he gasped in horror and shouted at the top of his lungs "Mummy, Phoebe's tiddler has fell off!" My sister and I cracked up, then had to explain the difference between boys and girls :)

I was at kindergarten with my nearly 4 year old daughter and my 8 month old son. I was sitting breastfeeding my son when another child in the kindy came up and asked "what you doing", to which I replied "I'm feeding my baby". Oh he said and went out to play. After the breastfeed, my son enjoyed a can of egg custard. I cleaned him up and popped him into the pushchair. The same boy returned and the asked "what did you feed your baby" to which I replied, "first milk, then egg custard". He stood obviously in deep thought for a few seconds and then asked "Which booby was the egg custard in". I laughed till I cried!

My friends' toddler-boy came and set next to her while she was breast-feeding the new addition and lifted his shirt and put a doll to his tummy and mimicked the feeding... That was funny! Particularly him being a boy and thinking it was from the tummy (not breast), LOL. It's so sweet watching children come to understand their world!

i remember when my daughter was around 3 or 4, it was a lovely summer and i didnt have much money so i asked my mum if i could borrow some money for a nice pool for the garden. my mum lent me the money, i got a lovely pool and her and her brother was playing in it all week. i went with the children to my mums house, she had quite a few friends there at the time and she said to my daughter have you got a lovely pool at your house? my daughter said no, over the next couple of hours lots of people asked her do you have a new pool at your house and she kept saying no! my mum asked her again as we was leaving and she said no again, then she said i do have a new pool in my garden but i dont have one at my house

Okay! We are a Christian family, albeit you might call us non-practicing. We say grace before meals and let the boys say it....which becomes rather interesting at times. Sometimes it's like being at a pentecostal church.....one boy says grace and the now 4 year old - repeats what he says every few words....so Jesus becomes Cheese or Beach. The nicest thing about the eldest saying grace, and we've not taught him this (he's not been to church or sunday school since he was little and we've been bad instructors)
- he always starts off with "Dear Jesus, have a great day...."

But the funniest thing was when he came to me and he told me that Jesus is real! I looked at him and I said "I know, but how do you know?" Oh - Jeremy Clarkson said so - HE SAID HE SAW HIM ON TOP GEAR! Jesus lives where Top Gear is!" ( and yes - he did shout it at me, very excited) (Top Gear - in case you didn' know coz I don't know where you are is a UK Car show)

Last night I was talking to my husband. My two year old little girl came up and asked to watch Arthur. I told her just a minute. And not more than a minute later she came back and said "Stop it, mommy, stop it. Listen. Want to watch Arthur?"

I went to the Zoo with my children and when we got to the turtle enclosure, one of them was partially on top of the other. Of course I knew what was going on, but my then 8 year oled son looked at the enclosure and said "All that room and he couldn't go around?" Myself and other parents nearby were cracking up to ourselves!

Ok. I will share my story. My Mother was visiting one time and I was sitting on my bed with my daughter who was 3 at the time. On the TV came a very hot actor and I said "Mom, You have to come and see this guy. He is so Yummy!" My daughter turns to me in a serious tone and states "Mom, we don't eat people!"

My favorite by far!

Hi! Just a few days ago, I was telling my 20 months old son off for being naughty while we were in the kitchen. As I was going on and on, he stuck a finger in each ear and started singing and walked towards the sitting room, pretending he couldn't hear me, I guess...I'd have laughed if I wasn't the one nagging, haha! Juz wondered where he learnt that from...

My oldest son was staying the night with his grandparents. My mom was making pepper relish and asked my son to taste it for her. He said "no my dad will" so my mom asked " do you think your dad has the balls to taste the hot peppers?" my son looked at her and said " No he got fixed" I thought it was very funny. Sorry if it is not appropriate.

When my daughter Emily was first born I was changing her diaper while my step son who was 7 or 8 years old at the time was watching..He asked me very seriously "what happened to her penis?" " I was what do you mean"? He said" she doesn't have a penis" " Of course not Sam, Emily is a girl so she has girl private parts and not boys".Sam looked confused and said " I thought everyone had a penis." I was laughing because I had no clue he didn't know.. My own son I explained this too when he was like 3 years old and was like 9yrs old at the time.. So I just assumed Sam new..

Another time my oldest son Nik was waiting in the car with my friend Dani while I ran inside to change my clothes.. I come back to the car and she is beat red in the face.. She was like your son just told me " boys have penis's and girls have a vagina, Dani do you have a Vagina?" She handled it very well..by saying "Yes I do, so does Chevell and your mommy" I couldn't help but laugh.. I was like " Sorry, Dani he just watched Kindergarted Cop yesterday with my parents." Its so funny that that was the part he remembered..

My four year old is the best out of my two at saying things that make us laugh... if one of them ask me a stupid question, I usually say "I don't know and I don't care." Now the other day one of them said something and I said I don't know and my 4yr old piped up "and you don't care." lol

My daughter is eight years old.. I was cooking dinner and my 3 month old started fussing. I asked my eight year old to hold her for me until I finished. She was standing in the kitchen with me holding the baby. She looked at me and said, "Mommy, I wish Ashton was a magnet so I could just stick her to the refridgerator." lol

Finally she did, but I heard her making lots of noise shuffling through stuff and I was like " Emily, what are you doing?" her reply was "Ummm-- Fighting Cavaties" I laughed so hard.. she was chewing gum..

One Labor day a few years ago, my then 6 and 7 year olds were arguing about the holiday. My 7 yr old son said "its a day off for people who work, unlike Mom." I was a SAHM. I just rolled my eyes and my 6 yr old daughter said "you are so wrong. Its a day when a lot of babies are born. Thats why its called Labor Day!". I am so glad I had parked the car by this point. Now my 5 yr old is our comic relief. She is always saying funny things...so many I can't even recall anything specific. Everything she says is sarcastic and hilarious.

Twin 8 year old girls...playing together at the kitchen table. I hear the conversation from behind them....

Brooke says, "Ew, BRANDI! get your finger out of your nose!"

Brandi says, "but there's something IN there!"

Brooke says, "DUH! Its your FINGER!"





My best friend's son told me years ago, he wants to be a train conductor when he grows up and he's going to be a farmer on the side.

I was able to catch this on video too! I went to my sister's bachelorette party and I brought home one of those headbands with a pink penis and testicles with a happy face on it home. My son found it and put it one and then he took his "Mr. Potato Head" rolling pin and used it as a wand. He waved it around with the penis crown on and said " Abracabra make a wish"!! He was the fairy godmother! I have never laughed so hard in my life! He is three years old.

kids are just so funny....my little one has started to refer to herself as "my big self" which is pretty hard to take seriuosly, and my 3 year old has always wanted to be a help in the kitchen...her fav spot was right in front of the cupboard door so when ever i needed something i would say "ohh you are in the road" so she started calling the corner of the kitchen "my road" and if she would always tell people if they dared to go into her corner "you're in my road" and recently we were away for a few days staying in a motel, during the day the girls had their photo taken my a local newspaper for a story, the next day it was in the paper and they were both very excited, as we were walking back to our room after breakfast all the papers had been delivered ingrid (3) said "oh look the motel has given everyone a paper so they can see us..."

I told my son not to jump in or out of the car many times before. So one day we were getting in the car after a shopping trip. I said "Hop in, let go!" He said" No, I might hurt myself"
Another time, we were all eating supper. My son didn't like what we were having so he was just sitting there. I was buttering bread for myself and asked him if he wanted bread with anything on it. I asked him this because he doesn't always want buttered bread, just plain. His reply was "Yeah, turkey!"
