I hope this isn’t a “guess you had to be there” story…but I have two funny stories to share.
#1- As I was taking the kids into Kroger to pick up a few things, I found a touch Blackberry phone on the ground. I was talking outloud and to myself and said, “Oh, some poor lady just lost her phone, probably because she had kids with her at the grocery store and got distracted….” Molly and I were talking about it, and I told her to hold the phone and give it to me if it rang. She kept asking me, “How do you know it is a poor woman’s phone?” I kept answering her and saying, “oh, it may not be a poor woman. Just because you lose your phone doesn’t mean you’re poor.” I didn’t know why she wanted an answer to that question until she said, “YOU SAID it was a POOR woman who lost this phone.” I laughed so hard at her.
#2- Before the grocery store we were in the library just to do get out of the house and do something free. Well, Mack came over and told me he had a headache in his belly. Molly and I just looked at each other and laughed at him. I told him he could go potty if he needed. He said he didn’t. After getting home, unloading the groceries and trying to figure out how to find whose phone this is…I hear from the potty, “I FINISH POO-POOING, MOM. I FINISHED.” I went to the potty to do what moms all across the world do, and I said, “Oh, my Mack! You did have a headache in your belly, didn’t you?” He said, in a very matter- of- fact tone, “Yup. There it is.” (as he looked in the potty)
So funny, these kids!
