My grandson, Eli is four and a half. His two grandmothers were visiting him in Madison, WI when he was a little over two. They were at a beach on a lake that is near my daughter's house playing in the sand. Eli carried a bucket of sand to a playground near by so that he could still play with some sand.

He was sitting on the steps of a slide when the two ladies came up to him. Without being asked anything, Eli commented--"I'm on the job, but I'm resting."

My wife and I still use that expression when we are doing nothing.

Haven't had nearly enough time to check into RP lately, but read this entire thread this morning... what a riot. Here's my offering:


When my daughter was around 4, she went outside to play and after just a few minutes wanted to come back in the house. I told her "I want you to stay outside a while and get some fresh air."

Few minutes later, she's at the door again.. "Mommy.. come and check my hair and see if it's fresh enough yet."

Talking

Good one, ravenmd! Whatever have you been doing with your time lately?

My youngest was dragging his little red wagon around everywhere he went. I asked him what he was taking his wagon everywhere for, and he replied "It's my reportable chair" Lawn chairs, wagons, wheelbarrows, etc. are still referred to by those "in the know" as reportable chairs!

And to THAT I reply, in my BEST high school french:

Où la bibliothèque est?

Which, as nearly as I am abke to recall, is something like "Where's the library?"

My granddaughter (now five) who inspired this thread spent the night with us last night. After taking a bath, she put on a purple outfit. When she came into the room where my wife and I were, she said "Grandma, did you ever see that movie "Pretty in purple?"

This first is from my son, the movie buff. He's known how to work the VCR since he was about 3, but he's just learning how to use the remote since he's the sage age of 5 and reading. He was watching a DVD last week (home sick with the flu) all tucked in on the couch. He wrestled himself out of his blankets and said "Momma, cause the movie. I have to tinkle." Being a wise Mommy, I said "You mean PAUSE the movie. It's the pause button with a P, not C." He looked at me, rolled his little eyes and said "No, Momma, it's CAUSE with a C." He reached out and got the remote and brought it over to me. "See, this is the PAUSE button" he said as he paused the movie. "You press the P-P-Pause button and you C-C-Cause the movie to stop."

About fifteen years ago, I smoked. Veeeery bad habit that I'm pleased I don't have anymore. One day I agreed to babysit my youngest nephew, Alek, who was not quite four at the time. My sister in law and my older nephew, Tye, were going to come pick him up from my house sometime later that day.

Well, I had a big date to get ready for, being a hot young single thang. My young nephew in tow, I set about grooming myself up so that I would be ready to go when my SIL got there. First, I took my contacts out, washed my face, and plucked and tweezed my brows to perfection. Then I put on a peel-off cucumber mask. Alek was sitting on the tub the whole time, chattering away.

Then I went outside to smoke a cigarette. (My bad...my bad.) He went with me and walked around in the yard, chattering away.

In due time, I went back to the bathroom to peel off the mask. Then I put my contacts back in and put my makeup on. Right about then, my SIL and older nephew came back to pick up Alek.

Alek runs to Tye. "Tye, you missed it!!!" he cries. "Aunt Amanda took her eyeballs out, pulled out all her hair, breathed fire...and then..." he had to stop to take a breath. "SHE PEELED HER FACE OFF!!!!! It was AWESOME!!!" Then he gave me a look of such deep respect and love it was amazing.

My SIL never did let me babysit again...

This thread has been silent for quite a while, so I thought I'd revive it.

When one of my boys was younger, and to the point where he could read pretty well, we happened to pass a Burger King. They had a sign advertising "Brazier Burgers". When he saw that, he said "Hey, look! They have brassiere burgers".

When I was in a theater, I over-heard the kid in the row behind us ask: "Mommy? Is that God's TV?"
