Blog Challenge "100 posts in 100 days" Post #15
A funny post is due after the last couple of serious ones I've posted. These are a few of my favorite funny moments with people I love (back when they were little, of course).
My niece Kennady used to confuse "pecan" with "leprechaun" when referring to her favorite tree. I still call that tree in my front yard a leprechaun tree!
My nephew Corbin stole the last piece of pizza out of my niece's hand, so I made him give it back. He gave it back, and then while hugging her and apologizing for stealing it in the first place, he grabs it back and shoves the whole thing in his mouth so that he won't have to give it back again.
Again, my nephew Corbin received a Buzz Lightyear for Christmas when he was about three years old, and when he opened it, he looked up with the most serious look a 3-year-old could muster and said: "I've waited my whole life for this!"
My niece Kortney was around ten years old when she asked me if I held her when she was a baby, and I said: "well, of course!" Then she asked me what I did with her. I sarcastically responded with the only worthy response a silly question deserved "I dropped you on your head." She said, "oh" and walked away. More than a year later, Kortney sat chatting with my sister and I, and out of the blue she looks at my sister and says "mom, did you know that when I was a baby, Aunt Carrie dropped me on my head?"
On a hot August day, my son Chandler wore flip-flops to his pre-k class, and at some point, during the day, one of the flip-flops broke, so when I picked him up, I had to carry him to the car. I looked at him and said: "man buddy you are getting big, I won't be able to carry you like this much longer, you are heavy!" with a straight face he looked at me and said "mom, you know why I'm so heavy, right?" and I said "no, why?" he sighed and said, "it's because my brain, it's just SOOOO big." I agreed, and we got in the car.
