El Gotic – Barcelona
El Gotic – Barcelona
Out of the mouths of babes;
“Running shoes are very important, as are smoke detectors in houses.”
Yes they are…
It’s amazing what you get from a 6-year-old who blends the English language with another language and processes it using their special wit and humour.
While stopped at a red light, my daughter must have noticed a sign which read;
She asked me; “What does No Trespassing mean, Daddy?”
“It means you are not allowed on that property / land… Why? Where did you see that?” I asked.
“Oh, over there, in the construction site” she answered.
Then she continued… “But I thought “trespassing” meant you had to pass the place 3 times… Like Uno, Dues, Tres… you know, Daddy… Tres-passing…”
“Ah, I know dear… Very clever!”
I love it.
After reading this post below at That’s What Anxious Mom Said, I felt compelled to add my own list below.
Some odd people visit my blog, and I don’t just mean those of you who pop in on a regular basis. More often that not, the terms search terms WordPress shows me that people used to get to this blog are fairly unusual. Sometimes they’re downright creepy. (Thank god I can’t see them all, or […]
Here are the most recent hilarious search terms which brought visitors – maybe even you – to my blog;
My Dad called me an asshole
Our nanny is pregnant!
How to pay a nanny under the table
How tall is Todd Talbot
Santa Claus porn (ugh)
What is one-month after Valentines Day called
Where does Belgium border Canada?
My Dad called me a dumbass
My son is a dumbass
My daughter is a dumbass
And so much more…
It would appear that in the past month, my posts about calling your child a dumbass, my interview with Todd Talbot and my writing on the Canadian Live-In Caregiver Program have been the most active.
I’ll have to re-visit this again next month, but excuse me while I cross the border into Belgium…
I wish that I could get into the head of my children!
It seems to be WAY more fun in there, than in the “real” world and sometimes you can just tell when you look at them that they are off in their own world probably having a great time.
Sometime I forget that children possess a combination of curiosity, and I-don’t-care in the way they look at life and when you take into account their naivety, and their innocence, its no wonder they want to be in their own little world.
But to hear what they are thinking about can come at an unexpected time and can often be refreshing and hilarious, take for example the comment blurted out in the car by my son Stewie;
“By the time I am ready to buy a car there won’t be any good license plates left…”
Yes, that might be the case, my wife and I struck with silence and as processed this odd comment, and of course, he was not finished, so he completed his thought with this;
“I’ll get stuck with a sucky license plate like Poop-so.”
So not only was he concerned that all of the good license plates will have been taken in, what, 10-15 years when he will have his own car, but he has actually given thought to what that license plate he will be stuck with, will say.
Well, son, Poop-so is a pretty cool license plate.
