Things My Kid’s Say

Here’s a list of some of my favorite people saying some of my favorite things:
(FYI -Ryan is my 6 year old, and just finished Kindergarten. Dylan is my 4 year old, and has recently learned to burp on purpose. Lauryn is my 2 year old, and wears pink sunglasses to bed.)

Right before a baseball game last week, Ryan noticed the trees bending sideways in the wind and said, “Dad, the wind is not my friend!”

Last night as Ryan was climbing up his bunk for bed, he made that noise that most little boys make a few 100 times a day. And it wasn’t a noise that comes from his mouth. After we all laughed, Dylan said, “Ryan is the King of farts, and I’m the King of Burps!”

Lauryn has added the phrase, “My Daddy” to every hug she gives me. (I know it’s not funny, but I like it all just the same!)

Ryan and I were watching the US Men’s Gymnastics Championships on television for a few minutes yesterday. After watching some guy on the rings fly through the air doing some flips and then land on his feet, Ryan said, “Is this for real, or is it a cartoon or something?”

    Your description of our kids cracks me up. Amazing that “she wears pink sunglasses to bed” says SO MUCH about just exactly what our daughter is like…

    Who wouldn’t expect funny things from kids who have a Dad that flops his face in his BBQ!
