Out of the Mouth of Babes .... er Eric

Eric and I were in the car together driving to my sister's house yesterday. He proclaims from the backseat ... "Mom, I've learned something from everyone in our family". "What's that?" I ask.

"I've learned how to be funny from Dad".

"I've learned how to be weird from Hilary"

and

"I've learned bad words from you".

Nothing like a kid to give you a reality check. Guess I won't be nominated for Parent of the Year anytime soon.

We never got to what he's learned from Mary or Jack because I spent the rest of the drive trying to convince him that surely, there were other things ... good things ... he's learned from me. He couldn't come up with anything.

Dang.

=0) Too funny! Isn't it amazing what our little guys say? Mine decided to repeat something I say while we were at Target the other day. I was picking up one of his meds, and he gave me this scrunch-faced look and said, "Mommy, that's too spensive." Goober! =0)

That's hysterical! I just had my nephew over the other day and we were debating about whether or not to let him watch a PG-13 movie (he's 13, but his parents are pretty strict.). I asked him, "There's some bad language in it, but nothing you haven't heard before probably, right?" And he replied, "Nothing I haven't heard from my mom."

That's too funny.
