It’s no shocker that kids are weird, like really weird. As a seasoned mom of two (9 and 5), sometimes even I’m slightly stupefied by the odd, off the wall, embarrassing, and downright creepy things they say. I decided a couple weeks ago to keep a running list of all the strange things I have heard. So in no particular order, here’s what I’ve got:

 They look son nice and harmless.....just wait....
They look son nice and harmless…..just wait….

– “I wanna lick your face, it looks like it tastes like nachos”

– “When I die and go to heaven, I want to be a dog”

– “I bet being an adult feels goofy…and loud.”

– “I want my name to be hopscotch burp. I don’t want to be “Lily”. *laughs mischievously* Just kidding, that’s a silly name. Just call me hopscotch…”

– (Watching Say Yes to the Dress) “Wow she looks like a Princess! But how in the world is she gonna poop in that thing?!”

– (While snuggling on the couch watching TV) “Ewwww you’re so freckle-y. I can feel it on my feet.” (I’m pretty sure she was referring to my leg hair on that one…)

– *Points to wedding picture on mantel* “There’s a picture of you so when you be old and dead I can remember you”

– (To the elderly man checking us out at Target) “Why do you have such long hair growing out of your ears?”

-Conversation overheard in the backseat:

Kid 1: I’m gonna go to college for fashion

Kid 2: When we are in college we’ll  be like normal adults

Kid 1: Cool, so we could drive places by ourselves and go to Monkey Joes whenever we want


Check back regularly because I am sure I’ll have more off the wall things to share with you soon! Moms, what are some of the crazy things you’ve heard from your kids?
