Funny Things My Children Have Done and Said

Updated on August 3, 2016
One of my family get-togethers
One of my family get-togethers | Source

My sons have always been entertaining. They started life as babies, who are always entertaining. We used to sit and 'watch them grow'. They grew at prodigious rates which people were always commenting on. They had to grow from little 21 inch babies to the strapping 6'6" boys they are today. Our daughter was only 20 3/4 inches but at 15, she is already 5'10" and I totally believe that she will make her mother's 6'.

Their humor though, has always been well developed. Sometimes sick, but very there. Sometimes it was conscious and sometimes they were just being cute.

David, our youngest son, had his teddy bears when he was little. He loved those bears and they were never far away. He would use them as if they were action figures.

One time, when he was about 3, he tied a hand towel around the neck of his 'Snuggle' teddy bear. He stood at the top of the stairs and flew (threw) it down the stairs. I was sitting in the living room, watching TV while they played in their room and when something hit the door at the bottom of the stairs, my ears perked up. I heard coming from the top of the stairs, "It's Superman" and then a little softer, I heard him say, "Or maybe just Batman." I busted up laughing. It was so funny the change and how he obviously rated Batman lower than Superman.

When the boys were 4 and 5 years old, I was working at a construction company as a job site clerk. My husband, who was disabled, watched the kids. One morning, it was chilly and when they got up, they all put their robes on, that I had made them. They were similar in design to monk's robes and I had made them from fleece, sweatshirt material. They were loose, warm, had hoods and went down to their ankles. Rodger's was yellow and Dennis and David's were different blues.

Dennis was on the computer and the boys were playing in the family room where the desk was. David is ADHD and always into something, very active and mischievous. He was running around, getting into things, bugging Rodger, irritating Dennis and suddenly, from over in the corner; where Rodger was playing quietly, Dennis hears Rodger singing a little song. "Every time I turn around, up pops the Devil in the blue nightgown." Dennis told me about it that night and said he almost fell off the chair laughing. We knew who the song was about.


Family Get Together

David had a thing about vacuum's. While I was vacuuming, he had to sit on the couch because he was afraid of the noise but wanted to watch it work. I always had to tell him that the vacuum was sleeping though, when I put it up because he wanted to play with it. I had to hide it in a closet with a lock on the door.

I have a very large extended family. My dad was one of twelve and most of them lived close together. Several lived in a small town in NV and my sister and I lived there also. One day, when my mom and dad came over from the nearest large town to visit everyone, a couple of the aunts got together and made the main course for everyone. They made bread dough and laid it out in flat loaves. Then they filled the dough with meats with sauce. Chicken, shredded pork, ground hamburger, all mixed with a complimentary bar-be-que sauce. Then they wrapped the dough up around the filling and baked them. There were 9 different loaves and they sliced them into 2 inch sections. They were delicious and devoured in short order. There were also several different kinds of salads, because we always did potluck.

Afterwards, we all sat around visiting, some out in the yard, some in the house. The kids were running around outside but would make trips into the house for different things. We just left the door open. David had come in to use the restroom and made a wrong turn in the hall. He ended up in my aunt's laundry room, where the vacuum was stored. My mom was on her way down the hall to make sure he didn't get into anything and saw him as he found the vacuum. He slid to a stop. He stared at it in awe and then he squatted down and patted it. He breathed the word "Vacuum" and then, got up and finished finding the restroom. My mom thought that was so cute and had to go tell my aunts.

During the same get together, Rodger was getting teased by my husband and uncles. Dennis had always asked them if they had lost their minds. This was usually when they wanted something outrageous and they knew they were not going to get it. Rodger finally looked at Dennis and asked him, "Have you lost my mind?" My uncles and dad all cracked up at his little mix-up. Never dull with my kids around.

Do you write down the gems that pop out of your children's mouths to remember in your old age?

Pre-Teen and Teen Years

We went camping and the boys wanted to try out the new rods that we had gotten them. Dennis wasn't feeling good and the guy from the next camp was going down to the water to fish with his boys. He offered to take them and keep an eye on them. The offer was accepted gratefully, and Dennis laid down to rest. Suddenly, David comes running back up the hill, shouting "Mom, mom, Rodger caught a fish and it has PINK lips."

Of course, I had to go see this fish with the PINK lips. I had never heard of a fish with lips, let alone pink. I got down to the water just as the fish hit land and it did indeed have pink lips. It was the pink plastic worm that Rodger had used as bait. Then the big surprise. Rodger, my big tough boy, was afraid to take it off the hook. I had to do it for him. Mom was tougher than the 11 year old.

When Rodger was 16 and David was 15, we moved to a house with a hill in the back yard. The house was at the top and it was a fairly steep hill that would be used for sledding in the future. It was summer now though. The people who had moved out had a toddler boy who grew up there. They had left all of his ride on toys that he had outgrown. They were broken up a bit and we were just going to haul them to the dump on our next trip.

One day, I looked out the french doors to see what all the screeching and hollering was about. One thing you learn with kids, if they are too quiet or too loud, you had better find out what they are doing. It is probably something that will hurt them. These over 6 foot boys were hauling the toddler ride ons up to the top of the hill and riding them down it. It was hysterical. They looked so funny with their arms and legs hanging out all over the top of these little toys. Their torso's were bigger than the toys they were riding.

The following winter, this same hill got used for sledding down. It snowed and since all of the sleds had been sold out, they did not have one. That did not stop them though. They got some sheets of corrugated aluminum that their father had salvaged for a shed and were riding them down the hill. One of the pieces had holes in one end, so they attached a rope at the two corners and would ride it down the hill standing on it and pulling the front up with the rope. I am always amazed that they did not hurt themselves while doing these things but "BOYS WILL BE BOYS".

Did you have kids that said funny things?

      Hi Martie. I have really enjoyed being a mother and I also love being a grandmother (I have 10 now). They are all such characters. They have kept us laughing, for sure. Thank you for coming by to visit.

      Kathryn, kids are amazingly funny. Their innocence and imagination will cause them to get the strangest ideas in their heads. When the ideas come out, they will often crack me up also. Video games are terrible because they do not allow them to use that imagination. I love to just see my grandchildren play outside instead of on a video game. I appreciate the votes and sharing. Thaks for coming to visit.

      katyzzz, I love having a large family. Unfortunately, they are on the other side of the country now, so I don't get to see them often. My family loves to have fun and the kids were always looking for something to do. It often got comical when they found it. Now they are grown but I have 10 grandchildren to provide me with laughs and giggles. Go out, read and comment. The people will come flooding your hubs too. You are a good writer and they will come back to read your stories when they do. Thanks for coming by to visit.

      What a great extended family you have Becky and it seems you all know how to get the best out of life, and oh, so many comments, makes me want to shy away from my miserable few. Oh well, that's life, perhaps I should have been a bit taller, although I'm fairly tall, taller than most females but it can only be by an inch or two, but it does seem to make a difference. Luvs Ya!

      Thundermama, we always had a lot of fun with the kids. They are mostly grown and out of the house now. I have the grandchildren for inspiration though. Up to 10 of them now between ours and his. We didn't have his with us until their teens, so I don't have the cute stories. Glad you enjoyed and thank you for coming by to visit.

      sgbrown, My boys are in their early and mid-20's now. I have heard some stories about things they did. They have said that we caught them most of the time so I guess we did pretty good. Our daughter is pretty mellow and a stay at home type. Her friends come here. We are pretty relaxed but make sure we know what they are doing.

      When I was a child, I remember my grandmother going camping with us and several of her 12 kids. She kept saying "I didn't know you did that." I know how that goes.

      What a wonderful hub. I can related to some of your stories. Just wait until they are all grown up and on their own, that is when you will hear the "good" stories about things they did they you don't know about yet! I remember telling them to my mom, and have heard them from my boys, I don't think my daughter is brave enough yet to tell me her stories, but she will in time. Voted up and funny! Have a great day! :)

      "Or maybe just batman." Hilarious. My second favorite is, "Have you lost my mind?"

      I had to look it up but I believe that I have been there. I live in Dickson, about 60 miles west of Nashville. The stories about my children are the most fun to write. They kept me laughing and I have written a couple of them. Now my grandchildren are starting on the trail of mischief. I am glad that you liked this and thank you for coming by to visit.

      TripleAMom, I do have the house buried in the side of the hill. It is about as safe as they get from tornadoes. I am also glad they figured out that this is one of the safest places to be. There were only 15 mobile homes between theirs and the tornado is what they have found out. Way to close to want to have been there. Even a small tornado will tear apart a mobile home. They knew it was coming their way and left. Then they figured out where they were going. Thank you for coming by to visit.

      Docmo, I love these memories and on days like today, I am so thankful for them. My sons and grandchildren were all within 1/2 mile of a tornado that was heading their way, I am so thankful that we taught them what to do and where to go. They came to the safest place they knew of, they arrived at my house. I am so glad that they knew where a safe spot was and came home. My house is buried against a hillside. Safe as they come, especially on the back side. Thank you for coming by to visit.

      wheelinallover, I think all parents have stories like these. They usually get forgotten about until someone writes some down and then everyone remembers them. This is a memory reminder. Reminds everyone of their own funny times.

      ADHD kids really have it hard. When my husband was a child, he was considered 'difficult'. They never thought it might be a medical problem, he was just being a pain. It is easier on them now. Thank you for coming by to visit.

    • wheelinallover profile image

      Dennis Thorgesen 5 years ago from Central United States

      This hub reminds me of stories my grandmother would tell others after her grandchildren were grown.

      My mother raised 11 children eight of which were hers. One of my half brothers would have probably been "tagged" ADHD today. In those days he just had problems.

      I work with ADHD children now and see everything I saw in my half brother in them. He had probably twice the problems your son had because just like me his third language was the one they were teaching him in.

      I have to tell you though most of the stories of my young family life can never be written. I have a hard enough time remembering much less translating the stories to English.

      Thanks for bringing back happy memories.

Then I was reading Alastar's comment and remembered several more. I jotted them down to remind me later when I go to write another one. Shouldn't be too long. Those boys kept me busy.

His older brother Andrew would just laugh and shake his head. You've written a Fun Hub Becky that brought back those memories.

      Very cute stories, Becky. I approve. The vacuum story is just the cutest.

      I did have one problem though...

      Batman could kick Superman's butt!

      I remember always laughing at my younger sister when she was just a toddler (she's thirteen now.) She'd come out with the weirdest anouncements:

      You know how radiators make a gurgling noise when the heating's coming on?

      "Mammy! The ray-did-dater is talkin' ta me!"

      She's forever telling jokes now, but I remember back when she first tried her hand at humour. She must have been three or four years old:

      Kerrie: "Why did the duck mow the lawn?"

      Me: I don't know.

      Kerrie: "Because the grass was gettin' too long."

      Kerrie: Why did the bear go to the bathroom?"

      Me: I don't know. Why did he?

      Kerrie: 'Cause he had to go pee pee."

      She was always delighted with herself, as I'd burst out laughing, and she'd think she'd just told the best joke in the history of the world.

      Again, loved the stories, Becky. Will bookmark this page for when I need to smile.

      Hi snakeslane, I had a fairly calm family when I was there. When I wasn't there, they haven't told me yet. They used anything they could find to sled down that hill. Thankfully, it doesn't snow here that often. I think I am going to have to do one on the different screw-ups they did. I am thankful that I was not your mother. I would have had to kill you all.

      My dad's family was sitting around the campfire telling stories one night. The 'remember when' type. My grandmother sounded like a broken record. "I didn't know you did that." She had 12 kids. The only reason the mother stays sane with a lot of kids is if she doesn't know they did that. Thanks for coming by to visit.

      Hello Becky. I don't know if I am qualified to speak to these kids stories, have only my own being raised in a big family to compare, but I would say these sound pretty familiar. On the sledding hill there were hub caps old tires and occaisionally the hood off a car. Big caffufle when the neighbour called my mother to tell her we were holding her one year old baby out the upstairs window. (we wanted to show him the view). The veranda roof went around two sides of the house and we spent a lot of time out there. Zooming out our bedroom windows, leaping off the roof, running back in through the house, up the stairs, and out the windows again. I don't know how our mother coped. I know when she wasn't in the house we did a lot of running around and swinging from the door jambs. I fell on my back and knocked the wind out of myself doing that. A bit scary.

      Then there was the time my niece stuck a rock up her nose. Never a dull moment around kids that's for sure. Your family kitchen photo and cooking stories are so warm. Really caught the spirit of the multi-generational gathering. Regards, snakeslane

      I for one vote for a "Humor" category. To me it's even "funny" there isn't one! If there were, we could quickly find some Hubs to cheer us up when the going is tough.

      Sunnie, I don't pop bubble wrap. I reuse it every time I move. I wrap my grandmother's china in it. Don't let my kids find the stash though. It won't be any good any more. Peeling glue has got to be the great American past time. Love ya girl.

      Mike, I have noticed that. I seem to write about funny things that really happen. Someday, I will tell you all about getting run off the road by an airplane. The only problem I seem to have is figuring out what category to put them under. Glad you enjoyed and came by to visit.

      Hello Becky. You have a 'Real American Life' series of stories for us. This was great, the sledding stories alone are such a tradition that many can relate to it.

      Yeah, but peeling glue off of your fingers has a certain fascination to it. Might even say fun. Hope your having fun.

      Sunnie, I am so glad you came to visit. I have missed you lately. David patting the vacuum and almost whispering the name of his passion was so cute. Right now, they are all mad at me. I am trying to make them grow up and they don't want too. They still want mom and dad to take care of them. One day they will figure it out, I hope. Thank you for coming by to visit. Glad you liked it.

      Christiana, David is the one with ADHD. Dennis is my husband. Although he was considered a difficult child and a menace to society at one point. It is when their minds go so fast that they cannot concentrate on anything. Reading a book or watching a movie is very difficult for them. Thank you for coming by to visit.

      Hi Becky,

      Nice one!

      I think about Dennis as ADHD. I was once I guess when I was young. I used to play around, running and playing with other kids without stopping. I just go home drop dead at night without dinner usually.
