Re: The naughty mat is waiting!
OH OUCH, Trip.......what a tangled mess that must have been!
Here's a fresh on from our 6 yr. old Grandson from last week. All I can say is they are going to have to start hiding the truck keys! :
KK's soccer/t-ball coach had him over a week ago Saturday to play with son/teammate, Matthew. They fished....he caught a 4 1/2 lb. bass. He drove the golf cart.
When Chrissy picked him up, Coach related the days events......so Chrissy said to KK, "Oh....you finally got to drive a golf cart huh?"
Coach: "He has NOT driven one before? I asked him if he knew how and he said yes"
Chrissy(turning to KK): (accusatory voice) "You told Coach you have driven a golf cart before?"
KK: "No, Mommy, I told him I know how!"
Coach: Chrissy, that's right, he said he knew how.......not that he HAD".
Chrissy: .... "well, I guess he got us both on a technicality there.....Coach, what you have to understand about Kristopher is that he WATCHES stuff......and then just can DO whatever it is......the first time, without having done it before".
A friend of mine has a 7 year old son who had a playmate over for the afternoon. My friend was downstairs watching sports on T.V. when the two boys asked him if they could have some cherry Kool Aid. The father said yes, but they had to drink it in the kitchen and no where else.
A few minutes later the boy sheepishly went downstairs to tell his dad they had spilled the Kool Aid on the white carpeting in the formal dining room. He went upstairs to investigate and sure enough there was a big red stain on their carpet.
He scolded the boy for leaving the kitchen when he specifically told him not to do so. After ranting and raving at the boy the boy looked up at Dad and said: "You know Daddy, if you and Mommy had hardwood floors we wouldn't have this problem!"
The story reminds me of my grand nephew. Chris and I gave him one of those Matel tool kits for Christmas a few years ago when he was 2yo. On that occasion, his parents told us how he "fixed" his dad's Jeep, using daddy's hammer. He did a wonderful job on the headlights and the tailight lenses! Since the Jeep was a classic his dad was restoring, you can imagine how long it took to replace the "repaired" items.
But then, Trip, you know the drill

We remind my oldest daughter, who now has children of her own and complains about them on occaision, about one of her childhood "pranks". She was very very proud at about 5 years old of the haircut she gave her then 1 year old sister. Amazing what even safety scissors can do in about 60 seconds.
When my son was exactly 2 and a half, his baby sister was born. She has continued to be a never ending source of amusement for all of us. He was always fascinated by the fact she was born with out any teeth.
One day the three of us went to the grocery store and there was nice man standing in the produce department smiling widely at the kids because of course, they were being irresistably cute and adorable (I wasn't the only one who thought so that day, lol!)
Of course my extremely astute and observant child says..."Hey mom!, That guy is just like sissy" I said why is that? My son says "he's got summer teeth too, just like sissy" I asked, What are summer teeth? He said, "some are there, and some are missing" Yes, thats right, the guy was missing a few teeth.
Well I nearly laid on the floor and waited for someone to run over me with a grocery cart to put me out of my misery. I was mortified.
That was hilarious Beenie Weenie! That reminded me of what my son did in the grocery store. He was about 4 when this happened and he'd just gotten over chicken poxs. We were in line in the grocery store and the bag boy had a severe case of acne. My son says in a loud voice " Mom, that man has chicken pox too". Thankfully the bag boy didn't hear him. I just wanted the floor to open up and swallow me.
Ouch Trip! Hey - you're laughing NOW, but I'll bet at the time.....
On my son's 5th birthday he got a lovely present of "Gak". Remember that stuff? Had no use (such as playdough) just slimy and sticky. He decided to put it in his friend Tyler's hair. As were standing at the sink trying to wash it out, with Tyler's furious mother looking on TRYING to wash it out (and it didn't come out completely - did I mention it was bright green???) his Mom scolded my son asking "WHY did you do that???"
To which he replied "I couldn't think of what else to DO with it and I wanted to see what would happen"
