Apparently, I'm bossy and old....

Me: So, Cole, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Cole: A police officer
Me: Wow, that's pretty cool.
Cole: You wanna know why?
Me: Of course
Cole: So I can be in charge and boss people around......like you do.


Me: Bella, want do you want to be when you grow up?
Bella: A unicorn...
Me: Wow!! And how would you spend your days?
Bella: Hanging out with the little Lucky Charms guy and painting rainbows.
Me: Oh, that sounds like so much fun....that's how I wanna spend my days too!
Bella: But, Mooooommmmm, you're already growed up and you can't grow a horn on your head now because your life is almost over.

'you're life is almost over'! That is so funny!

Wow-bet you didn't know you were a police officer!

hahaha, I like the "your life is almost over"

I always think back to when we told the older boys we were pregnant.
The look of horror on their faces, the eyes popping out of their heads.
Daniels classic comment. Your too old to have sex mom. You have WHITE hair under all that dye! Old people don't do things like that!
Jeremiah, died from laughing, after the initial shock, and my classic comment to Daniel.

JUST BECAUSE THEIRS SNOW ON THE ROOF, DOESN"T MEAN THERE ISN'T A FIRE IN THE FURNACE!

They didn't get it until just recently! (6.5 years later) LOL.
Daniel came to me and said, MOM, you're shady, you and dad.. that's NASTY.

I don't know why your post made me think of that. Maybe it's the your life is almost over comment from Bella. LOL

You made my morning!

It's a great way to start the day when you're told you're bossy and have one foot in the grave. Sheesh.

Tess said...

Kids. Can't live with them, can remember everything embarrassing they've done to get them back when they are older by telling their spouses.

Paula Constable said...

Creative Junkie said...

rotf at your daughter's last comment!

And how nice would it be to fly around like a unicorn and hang out with elves and paint rainbows?

Actually, I think I did that back in college. I believe there might have been some illegal enhancements involved. I can't remember.

The Daily Dean Chronicals said...

Funny on our kids perceptions of us! Your bossy?? I am afraid to think what me kids think about me! Thanks for the laugh! If your life is almost over, then I must be dead! hahahahah

Zeemaid said...

your kids are so sharp it's amazing. Nothing like a little kid honesty to make you feel your age. *L*

What a great imagination Bella has. Who wouldn't want to hang out with the lucky charms guys and paint rainbows. :*)

So sorry to hear that, Helene.

Have you made your funeral arrangements yet?

My girl would have encouraged the growth of a horn on my head, if only to hide the wrinkles that freak her out.

Mrsbear said...

Oh no! Hilarious. So my dreams of being a unicorn and hanging with the lucky charms guy are pretty much dead in the water...I hate that my life is almost over. I think I'm going to go choose a dying hole...

shelley said...

helen,
that was hysterical! but with two sets of twins i am sure you will have many more funny things to remember... just write them all down... so when your life is "really over" not now (lol) you will be able to look back over all of this and smile!
hugs,
shelley
ps every "great" mom is a lil bit bossy! it comes with the job! lol

Jen said...

Kids, don't you just want to smack, I mean love them. ;)

Musings of the Mrs. said...

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Kids! But without them, what would we blog about?

MommyAmy said...

LOL! Crap... I guess I better get movin' on my dream to become a unicorn! Especially since I'm almost dead. lol

wife.mom.nurse said...

Love it!

I love bossing people around too!

Nancy said...

LOL! Brutal kids! :D I love what they want to be when they grow up. Just wish for them to be parents so you can get some paybacks.. :D

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
