{FF} With The Right Ap, My Kids Say The Darndest Things

I always get a chuckle when other friends share the crazy stuff their kids say. In hindsight, I have not recorded enough of my own children’s gems, though I’ve taken to sharing quite a bit of their drawings on Instagram (for posterity of course.) When I saw this pin on Pinterest, I knew I had to make a better effort to jot down their quips lest they go forgotten.

And look how artsy it turns out! Somebody creative- quick, pat me on the back! It almost makes up for all the glaring omissions in their baby books…okay so Addie is the only one with a baby book but..moving on. Some of my favorite quotes this week.

Once we told her the opening Mass itself wasn’t 40 hours long, she calmed down.

No Teddy, the three month old is not an anatomy project / snack. And now we’re going to get less playdate invites. Thanks.

Rough housing gone terribly, terribly awry.

Ha. Ha. No. But I’ll wear it when you visit me in the nursing home.

5. Lastly, Addie’s great “circle of life” drawing.”

I can’t wait for the phase after children where it looks like I either get boobs or shoulder pads. Frankly, I’m too scared to ask. Especially knowing I’ve got an angry skeleton phase waiting for me before I can get to heaven.

Oh, kids. Addie was really on her game this week. Byron is normally a gold mine for this stuff but came up surprisingly short. He’s going to have to take it up a notch if he hopes to make it onto Mama’s Phoster ap gallery.

For favorites not directly tied to the emotional well being of innocent children, swing back to Hallie and the rest of Five Favorite crew. 


  1. Dying. I was going to say that it looks like someone was an exceptionally early bloomer. Then motherhood takes that all away for a bit. Good to know that menopause will reinvigorate everything…

  2. I think my favorite part is that the single lady with a VERY short skirt suddenly has two children and a much longer skirt. Looks like she learned her lesson 😉

  3. So, I’d better stop this mid-morning blog reading I’m doing because what I just heard was, “Mom! Clare put a comb in the toilet and I had already put my poop in there.” They DO the darndest things when I’m on the computer. (Shouldn’t someone be supervising these children?? Someone? Anyone? No one? Fine. I’ll go.)

  4. Dying. DYING. Thank you for the tears of laughter. I just know it will help get this school day started right.

    Now, to download that app and wait for the hilarity.

  5. That circle of life drawing is KILLING ME! Also are you sure you’re IN Heaven? Because to me it looks like Addie’s got you peeking in the door hoping to sneak through!
