Tripletisms 8/10/09

I was just playing my new favorite game on Facebook. Nope, I'm not talking about Mafia Wars or Texas Hold 'Em. I'm referring to the "Friend Suggestion" area. After a while those 'friend' suggestions really get out of hand, so I like to see how quickly I can "x" out of them before more 'suggestions' are made by FB. Think Robert Hays' character in the 1980 movie "Airplane!" during that one scene at the airport where he ends up beating up flower children, Hare Krisnas, and anyone else who stood in his way. Why would I want to be a friend of a friend's sorority sister or a fan of the Boston Celtics?

That's right. I was going to list a couple "tripletisms." by my soon-to-be Kindergartners...

*Walking around Balboa Island last week (doggie poopy on the sidewalk)*

  • Julia - "Ah, don't step in the dog poop!"
  • Alec - "Gross"
  • Vivi -"Super Gross"

*Yesterday morning on the patio (I'm explaining to my Mom about Julia's Nightmare)

  • R.E. Dad - "She woke up crying and totally out of it"
  • Grandma J. - "Nightmare?"
  • R.E. Dad - "I'm thinking so, but she was totally delirious....she finally said "I shouldn't have poured all that water." "Whatever that means...????"
  • Alec - (in his deep voice with a slight lisp due to a chipped front tooth) "What's a nightmare?"
  • R.E. Dad - "It's a bad dream where you wake up scared and feel bad"
  • Alec "Oh yeah...I had one of those last night...I see a robot in the park and he shoots me dead"
  • R.E. Dad/Grandma J. - "OHHHH"
  • Alec - "That's my nightmare!"

*This A.M. at Pre-school* (Vivi comes over to give me a hug good-bye)

  • Vivi - "Dad you smell like a fart!"
  • R.E. Dad - Vivi, I don't think I ever will smell good enough for you!!!
  • Vivi - "Uh huh"

Gotta go and pick up Bren from the airport. She's returning from a week in Vegas Baby! (at her Grandma M's place)...

I wonder what you would have gotten with quadruplets? "Uber gross"? "Mega Gross"?

"Dad you smell like a fart!"


Kids do say the darndest things.

My son went through a phase. Woke up screaming, crying, wailing .. couldn't shake or talk him out of it. Off and on for months. Fortunately, they finally subsided and disappeared altogether. But they sure were disconcerting. I felt so powerless.

Don't you just love things that come out of the mouths of children? Sometimes that's the only thing that can make my day better--a good belly laugh at some funny take on life by one of the little darlins.
