It’s Not All Mary Poppins

And I quote…

Lazy post today. Heard while hanging out with the knee-high set…

“Oh! Oh, look! A fwink-lar!!!”

“Hey, who tored all the flowers off the plant?”

“Whatchoo doin’?”
“Goin’ pee.”
“But you isn’t onna potty.”
“No. My diaper is cold and now is warm.”

“Get your finger outta your nose!”
“Get your finger outta your mouth!”

“Is your head stuck? Do you need help?”
inarticulate wail
“I will help.”
louder wail
“I won’t help if you yell at me!”

“You can’t sit here. I am sitting here.”
“Sitting here!”
“No, I am sitting here!”
“Sitting here.”
“I am sitting here first!”
“Sitting here!”
“Stop saying ‘sitting here’!”
“Sitting here!”

“You don’t go behind the couch. You will get stuck.”
“I SAID, you don’t go back there. You will get stuck.”
scuffling. wail.
“Are you behind the couch?”
scuffling. wail.
“Are you stuck?”
scuffling. wail.

“My mommy’s a grome-up.”
“And my daddy’s a grampa!”

“I am not a girl. I am a boy.”
“No, you’re not.”
“Yes, I am a boy.”
“No, I am a boy. You are a girl.”
“I am a boy.”
“Does you have a penis?”
“Does you? I have a penis. Does you have a penis?”
“Then you’re not a boy.”
silence. Then, quietly,
“Penis is stupid.”

  6. It’s usually what the penis is attatched to that’s stupid. 😛

  8. Poor Malli. I’m guessing she’s the one wanting the stupid penis. 🙂 There’s no logical way to argue that one, really.

  11. Now what is a fwink-lar? Sprinkler? A little late in the season for those surely.

  12. Anne – it is great to sit back and let them do the writing. I keep a notebook at hand at all times to jot down the stuff I’m sure to forget.

    Haley – you’re a sharp one. You’re right on both counts. That one was from my notebook, jotted down two or three months ago.

  13. I’m glad the fwinklar got cleared up, it has been bugging me trying to figure out what it was… I was thinking sprinkler, too, but it is too late for those, and around and around my poor little brain went…

    Fwinklar is stupid! Gave me a head ache!

  15. my favorites: getting stuck behind the couch “good”! and, of course, the truth we all know but don’t say: “penis is stupid”.
