Kids Say the Funniest Things

I'm going to go ahead and do the Writer's Workshop for this week today, since I'm at home thanks to ANOTHER SNOW DAY! :) Gotta love a four day weekend! So the prompt I chose for this week is:

3.) Describe the last thing that made you laugh really hard.
Last week we went to Kohl's. I had Kohl's cash plus a 30% off coupon, and Zane was desperately in need of new shoes. (We ended up getting him a nice pair of Nikes that were originally $65 but we paid $33 for - score!) As we were standing in line to check out, Zane was looking at his advertisement, something about how you could register to win a trip to L.A. He said, "I don't know if I would really want to go to Los Angeles, would you Shannon?" I said, "Well, yeah, a free trip is always good." He said, "Yeah, but I'm just not really into gambling." (Totally serious and thoughtful when he said this, btw.) It took me a second to figure out what in the world he was talking about, then it dawned on me. "Zane, gambling is in Las Vegas, not Los Angeles." Hahahahahaha, I'm giggling just typing out the story.

And since Zane was the last thing to make me laugh really hard, let me add another story about him. One morning, not that long ago, when Zane and I headed to his school to drop him off, there was a Nickleback song on the radio. As I pulled up to the curb at his school to let him out, he said, "Shannon, that song is full of metaphors and similes. I was just picking them out as he was singing." (Obviously this must be what they are studying in English right now.) Sometimes I feel a little bad laughing at him because he's being so darn serious, but he just says the funniest things sometimes.

He's funny, sweet, and just plain amazing. . . of course, I'm not the least bit biased.

The things kids say has to be one of the funniest things about parenting. My most recent post was about my son's language errors, too. (But he is younger -- almost 4 years old) You can read it here: http://www.leadingmama.com/2011/02/learning-in-progress-its-okay-to-make-mistakes.html

Fun post! Thanks for sharing.
