Kids Say....

Kids say the darndest things don't they? However, the funny things you get to blackmail your kids with later, seem to come further and farther between the older they get. That's how it's been with Eian anyway. Every now and then he'll say something he's totally serious about but used a word out of context or something.

Well I wanted to guide us all down memory lane with this blast from the past. Of course, I think it's hilarious but it may have been one of those moments where you had to be there. Okay so anyway.... It was two years ago and Eian was in kindergarten. We were on our way out the door and to my surprise Eian was done before me and was patiently waiting and watching me as I put English Muffins in the toaster. He asked me what they were when I took them out of the toaster. I told him, "They're called English Muffins honey." I explained to him that it's kind of like a bagel but smaller and not as "bready".

So then to make small talk, he proceeds to interrogate me about them, are they good, are they better toasted than not toasted, what all can you put on them and so on. He then asked me a question I was sooo not expecting. "Hmmm, they sound good but do they also come in Spanish?" So I realized that he was hung up on the fact they're called English muffins and I begin laughing uncontrollably!

He then gives me that look like he has no idea why I'm laughing and then says, "What? Well, they make French Toast why wouldn't they make a Spanish bread?" Oh my goodness I nearly died laughing but then had to quickly gain my composure when I realized he was serious and did not appreciate my finding humor in it all! But boy, it'll be one that I'll never forget and probably tell his kids some day!

That is too funny. I try to remember those little things myself so I can tell the story when they are older. Hey my husband likes to make Spanish bread from scratch sometimes. Spanish bread, otherwise known as tortillas, lol.

Kids are very literal when they are younger aren't they? I love it! Too precious.

You are sooooooooooooo right! The moments do get further and further apart as they get older, but as they get older you can have so much more fun with them when they realize what they said as soon as they said it. LOL

Little ones say the funniest things. I wish I would have written more of the funny things my boys said down.
