You Can’t Make This Stuff Up!

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Sometimes my daughter is hysterical!  She will often say things that prompt Ben and I to look at each other and say, "Where does she come up with this stuff?"  I mean seriously. 

Case in point.  Last night we had a late dinner so Mikayla showered beforehand.  The dinner included rice.  After dinner she showed us her bowl to see if she had eaten enough and I noticed clumps of rice in her hair.  Oy vey!  Off to the shower again to get out the sticky rice.  Ben got her rewashed and dried off again.  Then he told Mikayla it was time to dry her hair (before putting on her jammies).  Mikayla immediately started to cry and scream that she couldn’t dry her hair without her clothes on, leaving Ben a little confused.  So he turned on the hair dryer and attempted to dry her hair.  She started crying more and began to cower in the corner of the bathroom, pitiful I know.  Ben then asked her why she couldn’t dry her hair without her clothes on.  Her response, "because my skin will fall off".  Seriously??  You can’t make this stuff up!!  Ben then responded, "Mikayla, why do you think your skin will fall off if we dry your hair without any clothes on?"  Her response, "Because mommy said so!"  So Ben scoops her up and brings her to the kitchen where I am washing dishes and asks me if I told Mikayla her skin would fall off if she dried her hair with no clothes on.  My response was no, of course not!  Her demeanor immediately went from tears and fear to smiles and laughing!  She allowed Ben to dry her hair, with no clothes on, and amazingly her skin stayed right where it was!

Another funny Mikayla antidote happened a few weeks ago.  She was playing with one of her dolls that go with her dollhouse and he leg popped off.  She took it to Ben and asked him to fix it for her.  Here is how the conversation unfolded:

M:  Daddy can you fix his leg again?

B: Why did you break the leg off your doll?

M:  I did it on accident…No wait… On purpose…wait… Mommy, which one do I not get in trouble for?

Got to love the things that come out of a kids mouth!  Happy Tuesday everyone.

Mikayla’s Funny Statements

Saturday, April 7th, 2012

Have I mentioned on here before how funny my child can be?  Seriously, sometimes she says things and I wonder where she gets them.  Here are some of her recent "funny" statements that she says regularly.

"I’m sorry…I forgive you" – From the time she could start talking we encouraged her to apologize and ask for forgiveness when she had done something wrong.  Somehow it has turned into the above statement where she says she is sorry and then that she forgives you instead of asking for forgiveness!

"My Jie-Nuh" – We had a friend in Bowling Green who worked with sexual abuse victims and she always told us we should use the correct wording for private parts in case they were ever sexually abused it would hold up in court.  This is what Mikayla calls hers.

"Actually" – You have to hear her say this one because she enunciates it so well.  She will say this if she thinks we are wrong (Actually mommy…) or if she doesn’t want to do something (Actually we are going to…).  The word itself isn’t that funny, but the way she says it is!

"Oh Toodles and Super Cheers" – This has stemmed from her love of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (which is what we have decided to theme her third birthday party in case you were wondering).  She goes around saying them all the time.  Even at meal time sometimes she will have has clink our food together and say super cheers.

"Excused by the table" – She uses this one when she wants to get up from the table.  It is supposed to be "Excused from the table". 

"I-an-a-de-a" (idea) – This one is perhaps my favorite.  She gets so excited when she says this one.  This comes up when we ask her what we should do and she responds with "I’ve got an ianadea!".

"Humping" (hunting) – I am not sure how this one came about, but she says this often when we are outside and she wants to look for something.  I will ask her what she is doing and she will respond with "I am humping for leaves".

"Park and Play" – Ben says this is his favorite Mikayla statement.  If we are driving down the road and she sees a playground she will scream ‘There’s a park and play".  It seemed like an odd thing to call it until we realized we often asker her if she want to go to the park and play She now thinks that is what they are called!  Friends that ride into town with us comment on it every time she says it when we pass parks.  So funny.

"Boing-A-Hop" – I think she got this one from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, but when she wants to jump (particularly on our bed) she says, "Let’s go Boing-A-Hop".  So cute!

"Sometimes, but not two times" – If you ask Mikayla a question (i.e. Do you like this?) she will respond with "Sometimes, but not two times".  I think what she means is that she likes it sometimes, but not all of the time.  Still, her choice of wording is funny to me!

I really wanted to include a funny picture of Mikayla here but couldn’t find one I liked, so I am leaving it picture less!

Ch – Chubby

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

Here are some more funny stories from my students!  These were overheard while they were completing work.  I hope you enjoy.


Student 1:  What makes the "ch" sound?

Student 2:  C-H…like in chubby.

Student 1:  (very offended) I am not chubby!

Student 2:  (very matter of fact) I know you’re not chubby.  Chubby means half fat … like me!  I am half fat, chubby.

Student 3:  Hey, my sister is chubby!

Student 1:  So what makes the "ch" sound?


Student 1:  Have you ever been robbed?

Student 2:  No, have you?

Student 1:  Yeah, because we lived in C—d (I don’t want to say the actual city for confidentiality purposes, but in a kids mind it could be any city on the globe).  They stole my Cinderella movie.  That is why we moved to Bowling Green.  People don’t get robbed here, only in Cleveland.

Student 2:  Oh!

There you have it folks, we don’t get robbed in Bowling Green!


Again, you might not find these stories humorous, but at the time they were quite funny!

Kindergarten Students Say the Darndest Things

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

I have decided to start sharing some of the funny things my kiddos at school say.  You may not think they are funny, but I sure do…enjoy!


When having a discussion about stomach and intestines one student says, "I know where your food goes when it leaves your stomach…your testicles!"


Student:  "Mrs. Kickert, if you love ______ I can’t love you anymore."

Me: "I am sorry, but I love both of you." (insert a bit of explanation why and how that makes me sad, etc)

Student:  "Well I don’t love you anymore."

Next day…

Student:  "Mrs. Kickert, remember what I told you yesterday."

Me:  "About you not loving me, yeah."

Student:  "I didn’t mean it, I still love you."


The other day I saw a student picking at her bottom.  When I asked her what was wrong she replied, "Mom made me wear my wedgie pants today".  I didn’t know you could buy wedgie pants these days, but now I do!


Student:  "Mrs. Kickert, do you have any appetizer?"

Me:  "Appetizer?"

Student:  "You know, hand appetizer?"

Me:  "Oh, hand sanitizer!"

Student:  "Yeah, hand-itizer."


Stay tuned for more funnies!
