My Life’s Quirks – More Conversations With My Family

Set up – The 4 three year old toddlers are having snack time. Let’s name them toddler 1, toddler 2, toddler 3 and toddler 4. (I know, ingenious right?)

toddler 1 (out of nowhere):  Me going to Africa!

Me:  Oh really?!  Who told you about Africa?

toddler 1:  *looks at me with blank expression*  Me going to Africa and go see lots of animals!

Me:  You’re right.  In Africa there are elephants and giraffes!

toddler 1:  Yes elephants!

Me:  Who are you going to Africa with?

toddler 1:  Grandma and grandpa.

Me:  What a special trip that will be!  Do you know that Africa is very very far away?  It’s on the other side of the ocean!

toddler 1:  Me going to see elephant!

Me:  That would be…

toddler 2 – I’m going to Africa too and I’m going to see monkeys!

toddler 3 – Me too and me see zebras!

toddler 4 – Me too and me going to see lots and lots of penguins!

Me:  Um…well.  It needs to be colder to see pengu…

toddler 1:  And me going to go down the big slide!

Me: Wha?

toddler 2:  Me too!  The big slide in Africa is really fun!

Me:  O-o

toddler 3 – Oh a slide!  Me too, me too!

toddler 1 – Big slide in Africa!  I go with elephant down big slide!

Me:  Oh brother…


Set up – Jason and I are sitting at the dinner table with my daughter and son having supper.

Daughter:  Mommy, at school today I saw a bird poo.

Me:  Well, that’s interesting…

Jason:  Do you want to see daddy poo?

Me:  You’re disgusting.

Daughter:  No.

Jason:  Aw, but you saw the bird poo. *pathetic sad face*

Daughter:  Well, okay.

Me:  *heads table then looks at Jason*  What is wrong with you?…


Set up – This is another of our dinner conversation. Tadpoles. *sigh* My daughter, after her stay at my parents’ house a short while back, comes home with almost 40 tadpoles!  Most, thank goodness, were sent to her school where her class is watching them grow.  I asked her how the little guys were doing at school.

Daughter – *sigh* They are all still alive. (I’ll explain the *sigh* – all but one of the tadpoles that we kept at the house ended up dying)

Me – That’s great!  I wonder how your teacher is managing to keep them alive yet we weren’t able to keep ours alive.

Jason – She’s probably at home cursing us while taking pH measurememnts of the water and cleaning the bowl.

Me – I wonder if she’s married.  If she’s not, she’d have more time to care for them.  Does she have a ring on her hand?

Daughter – I never seen married rings on her hand.

Jason – Is she hot?

Me – Did you seriously just ask our six year old daughter if her teacher was hot?

Jason – What?  It’s good information to have in case you drop dead right this minute.

Me – *gives Jason the look of death*

Jason – *voice slightly quivering* Are you planning on dropping dead right this minute?

Me – *gives Jason the look of death *

Jason – What?  It’s good to be prepared!

Conversations with my family.  Just another one of my life’s quirks
