For Your Amusement...


The other day Lauren and I were in the car running errands. We were listening to the radio station that is playing only Christmas music (I know, I know, some of you are saying it's too early but I don't care :). Anyway the song "Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music came on. After they sang, "When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad..." Lauren piped up from the back, "Mom, why do they sing about when the dog bites and the pee stains?" She couldn't understand why I couldn't stop laughing :)

Last night the kids wanted to hear Parley talk in Spanish (he served a mission in Mexico for two years). After rattling off a bunch of stuff in Spanish, Josh said that he wanted to hear how he laughs in Spanish. After Parley laughed naturally from the question, Josh said, "Huh, so that's how it sounds in Spanish."

And I couldn't leave out Taylor. He hasn't said anything too funny, although, lately he's been asking me all kinds of questions that I have to think hard about answering. Like "What is the scariest storm you've ever been in?" "What was the longest airplane ride you've taken?" "When were you the most scared that you've ever been?" Most of these I have no answer for :(

I HATE it when the pee stains! Then I have to try harder to think of my favorite things while doing the laundry.

That is too funny! I have to agree with Carrie on trying to think of my favorite things while doing laundry!!
Our girls hate when we speak portuguese. Not quite the novelty for them.

I love hearing what's going on in kids' minds! Can YOU laugh in another language.
