The Darndest Things.

I didn't intend to post so sporadically this week, it just kind of happened. We got back today after a couple days away from home with J. He had a work conference out of town and with T and M at their mom's through today, the littles and I took advantage of being able to pick up and join him.

We swam and played and rested and ate out way too much. But it was fun. And it's always nice after a few nights away to be back home in our own beds too!

I've been enjoying participating in the Conversations with my Kid over at Moms Without Blogs and even though I'm a day behind. This week I had a really good one I just had to share!

So, better late than never, here goes:

The scene, preschool pickup.

"Samara, could you stay after for a minute?" H's teacher, Ms. Jacki asks me and I immediately panic. No this isn't my first time being asked to stay after, nor my last, I'm sure. I look over at H who's laughing and smiling with his school friends seemingly having the time of his life.

Once all the kids were gone, Ms. Jacki came over and wanted to let me know about something H had said in to her in class that day;

"Watch it, or I'll knock you 'til next Friday."

WHAT?!?!? I honestly looked at her in horror. He barely watches PBS kids when it comes to tv, is pretty much always WITH me and no one in our family speaks that way. Where on earth would he have heard something like that?

Oh don't worry, Ms. Jacki was a step ahead;

"I asked him where he had heard that since Ms. Sherri and Stephanie and I certainly couldn't see you talk like that and he said his sister says that to him."


"Which one?" I asked which looking back made me look oh so intelligent seeing as E doesn't quite talk yet.

I talked to H in the car about it. Why he said M says that to him is beyond me, as she doesn't and even after asking her she was clueless too. But in a house with four kids, passing the blame on each other works pretty well.

We also went over the fact that it's probably not something to be saying. Ever.

Kids say the darndest things, don't they?

Hey Samara! Sorry about the late visit to your place but oh what a weekend we've had! Jammed as usual!

It doesn't surprise me that your son speaks that way. It is sooooo you!! :-)

Just kidding of course!

But how hilarious!! He probably picked it up from another kid but doesn't want to get THAT kid in trouble! Better to blame it on sis.

He's one smart kid.

I figured it out. Its in the genes, his great grandpa T would say that. I can hear him (GG T) saying it right now. Those were different days as you know.. Of course I picked up the tradition in my younger years, However I haven't said that in a very long time....Last week I think, No I'm kidding.

Boppa, Dadio
