My kids say funny stuff, too 9

27 Nov

The setting: a Chinese restaurant. We’ve finished eating, cracked our cookies and are sharing our fortunes.

Daughter: Oh, no! It says, “Welcome the change coming into your life!”

Me: That sounds ok. What change are you afraid of welcoming?

Daughter: Puberty!

    Ha! To be fair, I can’t blame her.

      I recall being really pissed off about puberty.

      Thanks. It’s so wonderful to me that she has an international following. Of course, she’d kill me if she knew! When I get the guts, I’ll start blogging some of the truly obscene things my son says. They are hilarious, but not very PC.

    Clearly, that girl has a head on her shoulder:-)

      And a smart mouth to go with it!

      Oh, we’ve been through the trauma of how to hide her budding bubbies. There are so many things she just won’t wear anymore because either her nipples or her underwear would show. She’s supposed to learn human reproduction in the spring and she’s dreading it. Whenever I mention it, she walks around going “la la la la la la.”

    Fall off the chair funny!
    What a charmer…(oh, buckle in tight and prepare to hang on now that she knows everything and you officially know nothing. This too shall pass..but never soon enough)

      Don’t I know it! Thanks for falling off your chair.

    Oh no, you poor girl. Stay strong puberty doesn’t last forever.

    • jmlindy422 November 27, 2012 at 8:49 pm #

      I’m pretty sure it’s going to feel longer for me than for her! Thanks for the encouragement.

    Dealing with the identical issues here! Olivia seems to have about 100 questions per day for which my answer is, “I’ll tell you when you’re older.”

      Abby wants nothing to do with the answers! She so shy and modest, I wonder how she’s going to handle the trip to the Robert Crown Center to learn about the birds and bees! I offered to let her stay home and have mom teach her, but she doesn’t want to do that either!
