Whether it be my children or my friends you can guarantee not a week goes by whereby someone has said something that has been highly amusing, humorous or at the very least memorable. Here are some of mine;
1. A son’s logic
Son: ‘Mummy can we have a rabbit’
Me: ‘No sorry darling I am allergic to them’
Son: ‘When you die can I have a rabbit?’
Me: ‘OooooooK…….yeah sure why not’
Problem solved although if you find me in the freezer and replaced by a rabbit you know whom the culprit is.
2. Intelligent little bean
When my daughter was about 3/4 we were at the doctor’s. The nurse was asking all the standard coordination type questions such as touch your nose, put your hands up etc. Being a healthy capable little sugar bean, she’s was doing everything fine.
Then, the nurse says, “stand on one foot.” My darling daughter looked at the nurse, looked down and hesitated.
She then walked over and stood on one of the nurse’s feet.
Hmmmm didn’t quiet see that one coming!
3. Popcorn and Cinema
One day whilst my daughter was at her friends birthday party I decided to take my son to the cinema as a treat. Please bare in mind he was no older than 3 years old.
Through half of the film I had held the box of popcorn between him and I. Then halfway through I moved it to sit on my lap thinking he would simply just reach over.
He did but quiet reach and before I could hand him the box he shouted at the top of his lungs ‘MORE COCKPORN MUMMY!’
My only thought was ‘Ground, open, please!’
4. Parents watch your language
Having strapped my son into his car seat and commenced down the road my 4 year old son (at the time) says ‘any dickheads on the road today mummy’.
5. Geography took a beating
In a conversation with my friend about our girls weekend.
Friend: ‘Right so I want to do a return flight to Nepal?’
Me: ‘Well you can go to Nepal in Asia but I am going to Naples in Italy so you can come there instead if you like?!’
What are your amusing memories?
