The Family Circus…..LOL

Postby pre10der » Thu Apr 10, 2008 12:51 pm

My son Jackson has an Electricity project due on Friday for his 4th grade science class so Tuesday I brought home some Electrical components (I teach Industrial Tech) and helped him put together a couple of Electrical circuits. Wednesday my wife was helping him type up the report on the computer when she came and got to see Jackson’s report on what we did.

The report started out “First me and my dad got a couple of Strippers.” I almost lost it, obviously he meant WIRE Strippers!

A while back my 6 year old daughter Emma, was looking at a book and she screams out “Now that’s a hussie.” One day when my daughter was playing dress up she wanted to use some make-up, my wife and her sister told her that it’s important not to put on TOO much make-up or you look like a hussie. As I went over to the book to see why she had screamed out “Now that’s a hussie,” I saw a picture of Elizabeth Taylor all made up for the Movie Cleopatra!

I still laugh out loud when I think of these events. Hope they lightened up your day as well.

Okay I have to chime in because this one still cracks me up.. it wasn't actually said it was written, warning this rated pg-13** (in a cute way)

A few years ago while we were visiting family in PA for Thanksgiving they happened to bring home the new puppy we had heard so much about. We were all excited to meet the new addition to the family.. Lindsay was so excited she wrote about "tucker" in her monthly 1st grade journal at school. She neglected to capitalize the " t" so the teacher corrected it. Imagine my shock when a week or so later I read the corrected version and it looked like the dog's name began with an "F" ... you do the rhyme!! Lindsay has gone on to become a great writer and speller (really) but I will never forget this one..

Out of the mouths of babes for sure! Great stories!

When my daughter was in second grade, Arbor Day fell on a Wednesday. The teacher asked if anyone knew what was special about that day and she replied "It's Hump Day!"

Hump Day

Postby pre10der » Mon Apr 14, 2008 1:04 pm

Hump Day, Ellis should add that to Calender Man. I'm sure he could have a field day with that one! As Ellis says "It gets worse"! :twisted:

Never even thought of Hump Day for Calendar Man, but you are right .... I bet Ellis could come up with some great stuff!

It's my favorite day of the week! :D

Happy Hump Day!

Love the "Tax Day" lyrics, Paddy! Hope Ellis is reading this thread. You know, "Calendar Man" reminds me a little of John Gorka's "Body Parts Medley," only lots better.

One more little "out of the mouths of babes" story: My daughter was in about fourth grade and was discussing the Jesus story as she knew it with a little friend. Unfortunately, she got "immaculate conception" mixed up with "spontaneous combustion." Close, don't you think?

Have a great day everyone!
Cathy (and Michael, too)

"let me tell ya about the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees"

Allow me to explain. :lol:

Just before our lil guy (age 9) fell fast asleep tonight, we had the most interesting conversation surrounding his little league baseball "opening day" game set to take place tomorrow evening. I reminded him about the rule that states all players who "catch" must wear a "protective cup" and that if he wanted to suit up and play an inning or two behind the plate he had to wear one. This is where the conversation got interesting:

Me: Do you know where it is?
He: Well, I know where the cup is...but not the jockstrap. It's in the garage and I'm NOT wearing a cup that's been in the garage for a year.
Me: Well, you have to wear one to catch because you know what'll happen if the ball bounces up and hits you there. You won't be able to have kids.
He: Yes I Will......I'm not the one that has the babies!!!
Me: (Hesitant now :shock: ) Do you know why you have to wear a cup?
He: To protect my package.
Me: :lol:
He: That's what Brendan calls it.
Me: (not believing we are having this conversation but willing to continue) Do you know what your mother calls it?
He: No
Me: Your situation (a line borrowed from comedian Dane Cook)
He: I don't get it
Me: Your mom and I heard a comedian call it that, once.
He: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

:shock:
