Wanna Laugh?

A couple days ago, I was shopping at Target and overheard a conversation between a mother and her son. This is how is went:

Boy: I need these underwear.

Mother: No you don't.

Boy: But I need them!

Mother: You've got plenty at home.

Boy: But what if I run out?

I had to bite my tongue not to laugh in front of them. Aren't kids supposed to be begging for candy or toys? Needless to say, it was hilarious enough to me that I wanted to share it with you.

That got me thinking about a cute thing that happened this week. My sister-in-law brought up something adorable and super sweet that my niece did the other day. So, my nephews were complaining about the dinner she made (kids, kids, kids *shakes head*) With her beautiful small voice, her two-year-old daughter said, "Thanks for making my dinner, Mommy." What a sweetheart, huh? And she's my lovable niece.

Anyway, what are some cute or funny things you've seen or heard about the last while? Or have you written something funny lately that has made you laugh to the point of tears? Oh, golly, that has happened to me tons of times.

    Writing. Jewels.



  1. Believe it or not, yesterday at Costco, I overheard a girl while browsing the book section (a Costco ritual). She was chanting, "chapter books ... chapter books ... chapter books ..." I'd say it's mighty impressive when a child knows what target market they fall under. :)

  2. That kid begging for underwear is something my son would do. He rarely asks for candy but if we pass a bakery he'll cry for good bread.

  3. Begging for underwear? Now that's a new one!

  4. What kind of underwear was it? I think I need to know more.

  5. Aw, kids are awesome. It's been years, but one day my now-6 nephew out of the blue says to his parents, "Me need cheeseburger bad."

    It's legendary in our family.

  6. I have one for you! My sister received several gray onesies at her baby shower. She held them up, and my nephew chose that moment to announce that they were, "Fifty Shades of Grey!" LOL

    1. P.S. He has no idea what Fifty Shades of Grey is. There was something about it on TV, and we all snickered. Now he thinks it's joke material. *shakes her head*
