More Scotch, Burping and Mentos

What They Said Wednesday
Oh, the stage of chatty toddlers and preschoolers!  My kids are at such a fun age when it comes to the things that unexpectedly pop out of their mouths.  They are constantly making me laugh -- rarely on purpose -- with the things they say.  In the midst of wiping noses, playing Candyland and folding never-ending laundry, though, it seems that these gems get written down in my memory, but never quite make it to anything more permanent.    

All of you Moms know just how reliable that memory is, too.  At first I was told "It's just pregnancy brain," then "It's just newborn brain," and now I have come to understand my memory is just pretty much shot.  If I don't write it down, it's gone.  Like right now.

In an effort to have some sort of documentation of their "kid-isms" I'm going to attempt to capture them here once a week.  I was posting them in the sidebar under "Notable Quotables" but I have come to realize after I change the quote, it is erased and gone forever.  Both from cyberspace and my memory.  And it only took me 2 months to figure that out.  So a weekly post it is, as those get saved here in blogland.  I'm going with "What They Said Wednesday."  So that's my goal.  We'll see how long this lasts...

By reading this post any further, you agree that you will not report me to any authority based on anything either of my kids has said.  In addition, you will also gain an understanding of why I get just a little bit nervous about any time they open their mouth in public.  That level of anxiety increases exponentially when my son steps foot into a school setting. (Let's all reflect on the bat meat story for just a minute here...) 

If you are still reading, thanks for humoring me and reading my "this is all about my kids" post.  Hopefully, in return, it will provide a little humor to your day.  

My almost 3-year-old daughter...
"Mom, is that the More Scotch pudding we made?" 
...in reference to the butterscotch pudding I was pulling out of the refrigerator for dessert 

"I did rumbles today!"
...her answer to my question about what she had done in her tumbling class that day

My almost 5-year-old son...
"How did Baby Hazel get here?  Did Katie just have to push a lot and burp?"  
...his theory on how his newborn baby cousin arrived

"We got to play Sharks and Mentos in my class today!"  
...also more commonly known as Sharks and Minnows to the rest of the world

"Mom, hurry up!  You need to scamper!  Go as fast as you can!  Run as fast as an ostrich!!"
...as we were running in the rain from the parking lot to the mall entrance

No matter what they say, You Are a Good Mom.
