Friday Funnies – 27 Jan 2012

Remembering our children’s cute and funny moments! Our children love to look back and laugh at the cute things they said.

******

Faith (age 2) during bible time with her Bible on her lap: I’m turnin’ to chapter Luke!

******

What good it does a mother’s heart when her 3 year old shouts delightedly:
Wow! Fish for supper! Yay!!! Such a surprise!! (even though we have it quite regularly – its obviously a huge hit 🙂

******

Mom: How does a beaver chop down trees, does he use an axe?
David Strength (age 3): I think he eats them down! (he’s been paying attention)

******

Conversation between the boys:
Richard Courage (age 5): We are going to the biggest Amazon in the world! I’m putting up no-entry signs to some of the places!
David Strength (age 3): I’m putting up no-entry signs too. There’s no-entry signs because you can’t go there because you’ll crash into them!

******

All of us were singing Pop Goes the Weasel together: “All around the cobbler’s bench, the monkey chased the weasel. The monkey thought was all in fun – POP goes the weasel.”
David Strength (age 3): maybe the weasel was actually a balloon!

******

During Bible time we were reading and discussing EXODUS and we read: “THEIR flight out of Egypt (after the passover meal the israelites fleeing from egypt)

Grace (age 7): But Daddy, they didn’t have aeroplanes then!

******

Mom: I am so proud of you guys learning to drink so much water. Its so good for you, it cleans out all the bad stuff inside.

David Strength (age 3) looking intently at his water bottle: This cleans the sin out?

Yesterday, BB age 2 was having his rest in his room (playing quietly?) – next thing I hear aaaah!  aaaah! and I go in and he is lying face down on his bed with his backpack on his back, his arms through it and his face to the side “I can’t get up!” he mumbles in a muffled voice!
Then today he is having his rest in his room and again I hear aaaah!! I go in and he has crawled into the bottom shelf of his cupboard and half turned around “I’m stuck!” he says. Lots of wiggling and a bit of pulling and he’s out the cupboard!

BB age 5: While at the aquarium: “Mommy, what happens if you meet a shark and you open your mouth wider than his? Then what will happen?
