Memories of My Hilarious Kids

Updated on February 12, 2012

I'm Your Typical Mom....

I think my kids are the cutest, smartest and most talented kids on the planet. I'm sure you feel the same way about your little ones, too, and that's ok. It's our job as parents.

I am constantly telling anyone who will listen all the cute things my DD and DS do and say (for those of you who may not be familiar with parenting forums, DD and DS stand for Darling Daughter and Darling Son.) My mom advised me to keep a log of all this cuteness because I won't be able to remember it later on. Who knows, maybe it will come in handy when they are not-so-cute teenagers and I need a reminder of why I love them after they have been particularly horrid to me. So, I have decided to take her advice.

I have never been one to keep a diary and I'm not big on scrap booking, so I knew I wasn't going to jot them down or record them in a keepsake album. But I do love to create lenses on Squidoo, so I thought this would be the perfect forum to share the things they do that make me laugh. So check back often when you need a laugh as I will be adding funny things as they occur!

DD's Absolute Favorite Toy!

 

Funny Kids - Bones!

DD got some new glow-in-the-dark skeleton pajamas for Halloween, which is just around the corner. I wasn't sure how she would react to them when the lights went out, as she can be skittish about things (see potty incident below!). I took her to the bathroom and closed the door with the lights out so she could see them glow. She didn't have any reaction (that I could see).

So, we proceeded with our bedtime routine and after I tucked her in bed and closed the door I heard her exclaim "I can see my bones!!"

My Hair Is Broken!

As I was frantically running around the house trying to get everyone ready to head out the door, I asked DD to come to her room because I needed to fix her hair. As I was brushing her hair and putting it into her signature "bear ears" up do, DD touched her hair and sadly said "Hair bwoken." I was confused, what did she mean her hair was broken?

After a few moments it dawned on me... I said I needed to fix her hair, so she thought it was broken! A rather logical conclusion for a two-year old to come to in my opinion.

DD's "mad face"!

Have Some Cake!

DD and I have a little game we play with our emotions. She loves Ni Hao, Kai Lan, which airs on Nick Jr. and is a cute show which teaches kids about the Chinese language and culture as well as their emotions. Her favorite character is Ho Ho, a little monkey who gets mad a lot when he doesn't get his way. We will act out bits of the show which entails her coming up to me and showing me her "mad face" and saying "Mommy, I'm mad!" and she will act out the part of the show where Ho Ho got mad about something, to which I will apologize and ask for her forgiveness.

She started this game at the dinner table the one night while we were visiting some family, so she had a big audience. She asked to see my mad face, so I pretended to be mad. When she asked me if I forgave her I responded "No, I don't forgive you; it's not okay!" (we forgive the second time we are asked after an apology has been made). Usually she would say something like "I'm sorry Mommy. Do you forgive me?" but this night she loudly exclaimed "Well, you need some cake!"

Another Fun Leap Frog Toy!

 

Potty Training Disasters

Just say no to the musical potty!

DD was doing pretty good getting used to using the potty. I had gotten the most inexpensive one I could find and she would sit on it for long periods of time. Her grandma bought her a pink princess potty which played music as a "royal reward" for tinkling in the potty because other family members had recommended it. DD was excited about the pink color and was anxious to use it for the first time. She ran into the bathroom and sat on the potty, but as she began to go the music startled her. She let out a little "Aah!", stood up (which resulted in her peeing all over the floor) and tried to make a getaway. Her escape was thwarted by the slippery, wet floor and she slipped, hitting her head on the bathtub and proceeded to scream and cry as loud as she could.

No serious harm came to her but this incident erased months of potty training progress. The princess potty had to be removed from the bathroom (as she would whimper and cry every time she saw it) and is now used as a step stool to help her get into her new big girl bed.

Potties!

I have included the infamous princess potty here.... try it if you dare!

POLL - What To Ask, What To Ask....

I think polls are fun! Taking them at least. I am having a hard time thinking up an appropriate poll for this lens.

Do you find it challenging to create poll questions?

      well this wasn't lately but years ago my son was about 11/2 and had a terrible rash, so we left him in his little baby chair bare naked. The chair was on the table as we had just received a pizza from the pizza man, and as we opened to eat, my son relieved himself on it!!! Had to order another pizza...:) Great lens and brought back memories :)

      yes - my kids (well, nephews that i watch 75% of the day) ARE hilarious and adorable and my friends all hate hearing me talk about them. some how when you become a parent (or primary caretaker in my case) I think some giant reset button is hit and you forget everything else :D But, hey, they're adorable so it's okay.

      the potty training bit did take some work so i can feel your pain on that one.
