My Kid Just Said… (to my wife)… #17

Posted by , under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

FINN (Watching Busytown Mysteries):

“Mama, do you know dat hippo’s name is? “


“No, Finn. I don’t.”


“Her’s a girl hippo. (seconds later) Like you.”

I can already tell that my job as a dad will include teaching my son about timing and tact. The do’s and don’ts of male-to-female interaction have filled countless books. Apparently, Finn wants to burn all of those books and say whatever he wants.

He’ll either need strong cheeks for all of the forthcoming slaps, or I’m gonna have to learn him some manners someday.

Since I’m such an expert…

    Yikes! I guess its good for him that he still young and very cute!

    Ha, I love it! He obviously didn’t mean any harm, and if anyone would get offended over that sort of comment, then they need to take a get-over-themselves chill pill. :~)

    My daughters and I were admiring a friend’s gorgeous garden one day when my oldest daughter pointed to a bush and said “Mom, don’t we have a plant just like that one in our yard?” I said that yes, we did. She then said “Is ours a dwarf one?” Sigh.

    I recently got a sewing machine and the first request was from my 5 year old for a dress for her toy rabbit. Spent an evening learning how to use it, then got stuck in the next day, with her choosing material etc. Later, proudly showed her the finished creation and she said “is that the best you can do”?

    The tv show is busy town mystery or the busy world of Richard scarry and the hippo is Helga if you didn’t know. This show has been my five years favorite show for two years. We own a lot of both shows but the mystery one is his all time request.

    When my little sister was potty training, she was afraid of falling in the toilet. She said to my mom, “I can’t wait until I have a big butt like you.”
