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

    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".

    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 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."

    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?"

    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!

    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."

    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.

    We were passing a Dairy Queen, and there was a sign advertising a sale on Brazier Burgers. My son said "Hey look! They have brassiere burgers"!

    I have another one from my eldest son. We were in Kmart and he got seperated from us, he was about 8. SO he went straight to the service desk to have us paged. I was running around searching for him when over the load speaker came.. "We have a lost young man here by the name of Paul, would his" then it stopped and re-started "We have a young man named Paul here who's parents are lost, would they please come to the service desk so that he can take them home, thank you." He objected to them saying he was the one who was lost, he knew exactly where he was and it was us who were lost. lol

    when my son was about 6 we were in a large shopping centre at the top of the escalators. We were on our way to meet his grandmother when he spotted her on the floor below. At the top of his little voice he called out "Nanna" and about 50 old ladies turned around. It was so funny.

    When my son was small, there were very few black people where we lived and I'm sure he had never seen one - there were not many on TV either at that time.

    One day during a severe snow storm, I had to get downtown to a doctor's appointment so with my son in my arms I headed for the bus stop - the snow was so deep, the buses couldn't get through, but a black man in a truck came along and offered to drive us to our appointment.

    Along the way, the man had to stop for an errand of his own and as soon as he was out of the truck, my son turned to me and said, "Mommy, is that a monkey?" I was aghast!! What kind of ideas was I allowing my son to form?

    I quickly hushed him and explained about different colored skin, hoping that he would be quiet until we got to our destination.

    "No," he exclaimed, "not the man. I mean that," he pointed to the stuffed animal (a monkey) hanging from the rear-view mirror.

    Needless to say, I was speechless and did a whole lot of soul-searching about my own feelings about color. I learned an important life lesson from my son that day.

    I have a credit account at a jewelry store, that I haven't used in two years. My son also had an account there, but neither of us knew the other had one. He lives about 50 miles from me. Before Christmas, he went into the jewelry store, told them he had an account that he also hadn't used in quite a...

    Warning... venting here about helping people out
    by twinkissed
    You know... I never thought I would say this but I don't want to help people out anymore. My husband was helping an old lady fix her car and has saved her hundreds of dollars (he has fixed quite a few things for her). The last time while trying to reach something on her car, there was an exposed wire...

    Another post about my goofy dog
    by Ed_L
    We came home from a doctor visit about 5:30 this evening. My dear wife failed to lock the gate when she came through it. We let Princess (our dog) out in the back yard, not knowing the gate was unlocked. If it's not locked, she pushes against it, then roams around the neighborhood for a short while....
