If you have had children you know how comical and amusing they can sometimes be. I'd love to laugh today so here is my question. What is the funniest thing you can remember one of your children doing? My kids have done so many funny things but there are two that stand out to me. My daughter was almost 2 years old and still occasionally slept with a bottle. The one she used was one of those old fashioned heavy duty glass bottles. You know the kind that could crack a brick and come to no harm. At this time my brother was living with us and sleeping on the couch. One night she woke up with an empty bottle. She climbed out of her crib and walked into the living room with her bottle. She climbed up on her uncle and sat on his chest facing his face. She bonked him in the middle of his forehead with the bottle hard. When he popped his eyes open she said "dwink uncle ty". All he could do was laugh. How could you get mad at this. My second amusing memory is this. My kids were about 6, 7, and 8. My 8 year old and I were working on a project in the kitchen and the other two were playing in the bedroom. They must have been very quiet and sneaky and I must have been very preoccupied because about 20 mins went by and I got up to go check on them. When I got up I noticed the younger one headed toward the front door with a box of toys. I asked what he was doing and he said "bringing more stuff to our yard sale". What yard sale. I looked outside and these two little sneaks had lined up all their brother's toys and books on the lawn to sell. Ashley was busily marking prices on little peices of paper to lay under each item. I, of course, immediately made them clean it all up and put it away but later I could only laugh at how ingenuitive they were. Tell me your stories.

Recently my 5 year old twins were having an arguement. I could hear from the other room my daughter say to her brother in a very convincing tone "Back off, Jack!" My son then comes in to the room I'm in looking very depressed and told me what his sister said to him, then says, "But my name isn't Jack!" They always do such funny things, unfortunatly at the moment I can't think of most of them.

Okay, I just thought of another one, and this is something that is funny to me, and to others, but my husband still gets angry when we think on it. Back in January, the night I went in to deliver my youngest son.. my husband got home around 2am after not having slept in nearly 24 hours. He discussed the birth of the child with the woman who was there watching our older children, bid her goodnight, and finally settled into bed around 3AM. He was awoken at 4am by a state trooper in our bedroom. Apparently, my 5 year old daughter had freaked out, the reason is still unknown, and called 911. The troopers arrived, she let them in, and of course they had to wake up my husband to make sure everything was ok. She says she did it because she wanted cough medicine, but didn't want to wake daddy up. I think she may have also been worried because I had left home in the middle of the night and not returned. Not to mention, one of her classmates was in the newspaper and deemed a hero because he had called 911 when his mother passed out.

What a cute discussion. This is sure to genrate a lot of laughs.. Thank you for posting this!! When my kids were 4 and 5, they, like many kids would give me an attitude about things when I asked them to clean up their messes or whatever. I would tell them "you have an attitude" One day, I was at my wits end, so i asked my mom to come over hand help me with the kids. My daughter (the oldest) was doing something that was irritating me. So I yelled at her and told her to stop it. She looked at me, cocked her curly little head, put her hand on her hip and said "You got a 'aitude' mommy!" My mom and I were laughing so hard.. I couldn't be mad. As for my son, I think it was the same year my 5 year old daughter told me off lol.. I asked him what he wanted for Christmas. He said "sticks", I asked him if that was all.. he said "no, I want rocks, grass, and ants too" I was laughing so hard because he was so serious. So Christmas Eve, I went outside and gathered the rocks, sticks, and grass (to dark to see the ants, put them in a shirt box, wrapped it, and hid all of his other presents in another room. Christmas morning came. I handed him his box.. he opened it. He was so happy! That is... until he saw saw his sister opening all of her presents, then he lost his smile, and his lower lip came out (it was so cute when he was about to cry). SO I went inand got the rest of his gifts. To this day, both of my kids remember both incidents, they are now 16 and 17 Thanks again for posting this. Your stories gave me a smile, as did typing my stories.
