Say what?!?!

My friend, Missy, at Two Little Monkeys hosts a weekly meme called "Say What Wednesdays" and since the kids have been rather entertaining lately I thought I'd jot down a few of their recent conversations.

Garrett:  Mommy, are we on earth?
Me:  Well, I am...I don't know where you are.


Cole:  Bella, give me that piece of paper over there or I'm not gonna draw with you anymore.
Me:  Cole, do you realize you'd catch more flies with honey than vinegar?
Cole:  WHAT?!  Who said anything about catching flies.  Plus I don't even know what vinegar is. 
Me:  Life lessons are totally lost on you guys.
Cole:  Try speaking regular next time and less about life.


Landon:  Mommy, get me some more milk.
Me:  Uh, manners?  Do I look like your personal maid?
Bella:  Mommy, you probably would look like his personal maid if you smiled when you got him his milk.


Landon:  Do we have "doctor" today?
Me:  The doctor?  No, you're not doing to the doctor today.
Landon:  NOOOO, doctor!  Do we have doctor today?
Me:  NO, you're not going to the doctor.
Landon (becoming even more frustrated):  No, not doctor.  DOCTOR!!  Do we have DOCTOR today?
Me:  Landon, I'm sorry.  I don't understand what you're saying.
Landon:  Garrett, tell Mommy what I'm saying.
Garrett:  Oh, he wants to know if we have soccer today.
Me:  Geez, you could've saved everyone a bunch of frustration if you had translated a little sooner!


Me:  Bella, who's your best friend?
Bella:  Why do you always have to ask me that?  You are my best friend.  You know that.  But I also have other best friends, too. 
Me:  Why can't I be your only best friend?
Bella:  Mommy, don't be selfish.  You have to share me with the world.

You just crack me up. I was clueless about the doctor/soccer dilemma but as always it's that Bella who takes the cake. Little does she know you are already sharin' her with the world.

Ah, childhood wisdom. You know, we could always stick a video camera in your kids' rooms and my kids' room, and make a killing on a reality show.

Mommy, you probably would look like his personal maid if you smiled when you got him his milk.

They are so cute! So, does Garrett translate for Landon very often?

The Lane Family said...

OH Helene, these are priceless. I love how Garrett translated for Landon..I see this in our future as well with Kaylee and Avery.

The conversation with Bella about best friends is so funny and so sweet. I love that you share these on your blog because someday you can share them with them and they will laugh of that I guarnatee.

Karen Peterson said...

Sharing Bella with the world, huh? Sounds like you've got a diva on your hands... LOL

Just Another Mom of 2 said...

Ahh, I love it! It's so amazing how their little minds work- you just never know what is going to come out of their mouths (or when!!).

Buckeroomama said...

Tell Bella that you ARE sharing her with the world... that you write about her on your blog.

I wonder if she'll demand now to be featured in 99.9% of your blog posts hence though... :)

I love reading about your kids!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

For real. We have a 30 minute convo before somebody translates!

Frugal Vicki said...

I have to tell you, it frustrates me sometimes that my son can understand exactly what my daughter is saying 100% of the time, and 85% of the time I am clueless.

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