    Kids Say The Darndest Things....

    Here are a few "darndest things" that made me chuckle from the weekend :)

    Me: "Jack, your feet stink"
    Jack " No Mom, it is my toot that stinks"

    Riley: "That girl with the fluffy hair (a black woman) was at our school for multi-cultural day last year"
    Me: "Oh what is her culture?"
    Riley: "The bongos"

    Claire: "Bad kids can go to jail you know..."
    Riley: "Noooo, they go to "JOOBY"
    Claire: "What is jooby?"
    Riley: "A special jail for kids. In real jail you have to wear orange clothes, in jooby you can bring your own jammies."

    Jack: "We watched a movie about Terri Fox today at school"
    Me: "Oh really? Did you like it?"
    Jack: " YES it was SO cool...he ran all the way to Ontario..."
    Me: "Wow!!!"
    Jack: "Yeah and guess what, he did it on 1 leg because his other leg is a broom...."

    Parker (while in my bedroom as I am getting dressed): "UH OH!!! Mama penis fall off diaper...hurt??

    Stay tuned for an interview with Riley :)
    Happy Monday everyone! Wishing you all a wonderful week!

    PS I don't know if everyone heard the news....On September 30th, 2011, Facebook will start charging you for your account. To avoid this, you MUST get NAKED, stand on your dining room table and do the Macarena, all the while singing ”I Will Survive”. After filming and posting it to your Facebook wall and YouTube, then, and only then, will Mark Zuckerberg come down your chimney to tell you that your account will stay free. Pass it on, it must be true because someone on Facebook I hardly know told me.....I just had to pass this on. HAHAHAHAHA
    Now please people, stop spamming FB with your warnings that FB is going to start charging...they are can sleep tonight ;)

    Maybe SOMEDAY? Hahahaha

    Nope...not me....but some people truly are.
