After a couple of weeks of insisting I join her in painting white blood cells destroying bacteria over and over and over again...

 

L: Mama, I think we should paint something pretty today!

 

Me,thinking: yes!  finally something new! 

 

L: Let's paint some pretty bacteria and blood cells!

So, her interest in microbes and blood cells has put her play doctor kit into major use around here and she is dissatisfied with her toy syringe because she knows it isn't remotely authentic.  So yesterday she asked me to show her how real needles work.  So I gave her the ipad and youtube and she sat, FASCINATED, for 45 minutes and watched nursing training videos on syringe preparation and giving injections

Then today she was looking at her pretend thermometer and we were talking about the different temperatures written on it and what it would mean if your temperature was a certain number....and she jokes that it would be really funny if they put GOOGOL DEGREES on there....I was like, what?!  How does she even.....?????

 

(I asked my husband and apparently he mentioned it to her briefly a couple of months ago!!!) 

 

Then she sits down and writes googol.....1 with 100 zeros.............

WTH child?!

All morning, DD1 went on and on and on and on...pulleys and gravity and atoms and dna and platelets and nonsense rhyming and singing songs about numbers and  blahblah.gif blahblah.gif blahblah.gif blahblah.gif

 

Then she stops suddenly, puts a hand on her forehead and says

 

"Mommy, my head is SO busy!!"

 

NO KIDDING!!!dizzy.gif

Hahaha I love this! smile.gif  DS was playing with his blocks the other day - he held them up and told me correctly, "See, Mommy? Triangle...See Mommy? Cylinder!" (that one kinda cracked me up - I'm sure I told him both of those at some point, but who knows how long ago!)

 

He also makes me laugh in his little adult voice when we are working on his 48 piece puzzles...talking to himself, saying, "Hmm...maybe this piece next? Yup! Great job!" - or if I help him a little, give him a piece or something, he says, "Oh yes, I see, I see! Of course!" or "Oh yes, I agree, thank you!" wink1.gif

 

Back to the busy brain, I jotted this partial conversation down the other day for posterity (it's typical toddler craziness, but I hardly see him slowing down!) :

 

"No, mommy, I said RAPTOR!" "Oh, you were talking about a raptor?" "Yes, Mommy - or...maybe T-Rex." "I see!" "Look, Mommy (points to his shirt) - dog shirt!" "Yes I see that DS, you picked that out to wear yesterday, I remember." "Yes, Mommy, I remember...look, the number 3!" "You see the number 3?" "Yes - oh look Mommy, eggs!  Two eggs.  I cook eggs for Daddy, too." "That's nice of you!" "Of course! Come on, Mommy, pirate puzzle!" 

AND on that note, he just jumped off the couch after eating lunch, announcing, "Come on, I have lots of work to do, Mommy!" dizzy.gif

My 12-year-old made me laugh the other day. I commented that he could stand to be a little more chivalrous and he responded with...

 

"Chivalry is part of a Knights code. If you want Chivalry, then I get a sword."

 

Note to self, get the boy a sword.

These stories are cracking me up.  I have so many that I am not sure where to begin.  DS is 6, and we had many discussions on politics and voting, and the checks and balances of the current governmental system in the US (along with side commentary and analysis on the Political process in the Star wars universe).  One day I get a call from his 1st grade teacher.  They have been writing about elections and my son had come to her and said, "My daddy is an f-word conservative, but I can not remember how to spell that f-word."  She was a little freaked out, and I was confused since I did not know where the convo had come from.  I asked her to let me talk to him, and his f-word was fiscal (you know mommy, when they are real careful how they spend money).  So not what the teachers (or I) had thought.

"f-word conservative" that made me laugh smile.gif

 

Conversation around the dinosaur fridge magnets this morning: "What is this one called, Daddy?" "I think that's Pachycephalosaurus, DS." "No, Daddy, it's Parasaurolophus (finds and points) THERE'S Pachycephalosaurus! See, Daddy?" "You're right, DS!" "Yes, Daddy."ROTFLMAO.gifSuch a cute teacher - he was very patient and watched his Dad closely to see if he was absorbing the lesson.

These are all so great, I luxlove.gif them!

 

Tonight, DD wrapped her arms around my neck when I was tucking her into bed and said 

 

"I'm going to keep you, Mommy!  You'll stay here with me and we will stay up all night and talk about hydrogen!"

 

Oh boy! banana.gif Hehe.

New one to add.  DS crashed hard while trying to get on the swing by himself.  "Owwww!!  My brain smacked my cranium when I hit the Earth's crust - wahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!" Sometimes it's really hard not to laugh.

Aww my 9-yo DD maybe doesn't know 31 digits but she would have gone along with her for a while.  Luckily she had a fantastic K-2 teacher so they all know about Pi and circumference and ratios.  So your DD would have been in good company at our school.  

post #32 of 39
When asked how can you tell the difference between a boy and a girl, DD(4) replied, 'A boy has an X and a Y chromosome, a girl has two X's.' (But what I really want to know is why she was being asked this question in the first place!)

Edited to add - I realize that isn't really funny - but it was in the context of her preschool 'circle time.'

This morning my 15 month old points at my solid blue shirt and says "circle". I'm like, er, I don't see a circle. She insists and points saying circle again. I tell her I don't understand. Exasperated, she yanks my shirt and bra down and points to, yeah, a circle. FYI, that's NOT how I've been approaching shape learning. 😳

DD just started swimming lessons.  Her first day, my husband gets in the pool with her and for the first exercise he holds her under the armpits and pulls her around.  From what he explains to me she has no instinct to swim.  Her arms and legs go completely limp and he is just pulling her around.  When this was over, very proud of herself, excited, and as a matter a fact as can be, she looks up at the swimming instructor, and says,  "And that's how we swim".   nod.gif  hehe  yep

I think of this thread often, and mentally crack up at DS and mean to post - but I always forget. smile.gif  He just turned 2 in April and is more hilarious than ever.

 

Today, I suggested we make a drawing for DH for Father's Day.  Asked DS what he'd like to draw - "Let's draw Daddy!" (no surprise there)

 

Only...then he said, "Ok, this is Daddy's body, and Daddy's head...and this is his heart...this is all his blood coming out...and now, let's draw red blood cells and white blood cells and PLATELETS!!!" orngbiggrin.gif

 

And so he did. thumb.gif

ROTFLMAO.gif That's awesome!  Love it.  I'm frequently glad DS is so insistent, and relatively patient, with me - I know he feels like he's working with amateurs. winky.gif
