...the mouths of babes!

In our house, any type of cream or lotion for healing (vasoline, daiper rash cream, Eucerin) is called "goopies." (If you're prone to blushing, just scroll on past!)

Jefferson comes to dh from our bedroom and says: "What's that goopies you have next to your bed?"
DH: "What? Where?"
J: "In the drawer that you don't use. By your side of the bed - it's always hidden there."
DH: "Uh.....that's just lotion - not for you!"

(Yikes! I guess we're going to have to get a little more clever about hiding our personal "goopies"!)

We've been watching Veggie Tales around here and have gotten the "If it Doesn't Have a Tail, It's Not a Monkey, It's an Ape" silly song from Larry in our heads for days!

Me: "Rae, you don't have a tail - you must be an ape!"
Reagan (5): "No, Mommy. I'm a kid!
Me: "How do you know?"
Reagan: "Because I have arms and legs!"

(Uh - what do you call the apendages on an ape?)
Reagan (5) to Adam (2) as he screams and throws a toy: "You're not making a very good choice!"

(So it's NOT just going in one ear and out the other!)

great stories all around! I especially love the goopies story.....the other day I found Kate crawling around with a tampon in each hand!......its one of those things where you just hope that you don't have guests over someday and they come popping out with "hey mommy whats THIS?!?!?!"

I'm laughing out loud!! It's funny to me that somehow he knew that it was "hidden".

The goopies cracked me up on so many levels. I love hearing terms that families use and that one is so funny. Secondly, the personal ones...ha ha ha!

Hi Andrea, I loved the comment your daughter made about "not making a good choice" - I heard my eldest daughter insisting today that, "the Bible says you have to share, so share with me!" I love it when they apply what you've taught them in the correct context.
