At my afterschool care program, I like to scare kids. I have this running joke where I will tell them I am going to take them home so they can clean up my room. usually the more sensitive, younger ones will cry, once picked up, and made to believe I'm taking them home. Anyway, when little Tommy started coming to my afterschool program he was very quiet and shy, he started to open up some a few weeks in, until I started telling him he was going to "clean my room." A month later I realized that Tommy wasn't running around playing anymore, because my co-counselor pointed out he'd hide on top of the playground and watched my every movement. If I walked all the way around the playground his head would turn a full 360. I had to explain to mom I wasn't actually going to take him home. The Joys of Childcare
So I work at a preschool-type program, and the other day we were learning simple pictures, we would pick out picture flashcards for the kids to figure out what it was, like a duck, wagon, bear, etc. Anyway, we picked out a picture of a raccoon for little cute Susy to decipher, and asked, "What is it?" "It's a fox!" She responded. We replied, "No it has a mask Susy, what animal wears a mask?" She quickly belted, "It's a SUPER FOX!" The Joys of Childcare
We have a large age difference in the children in our family. I am the oldest, 22; I have an 18 year old sister; a 10 year old brother; and an 18 month old brother. Well 18 likes to run around the house jokingly calling us all butthead (even the 18 month old when he misbehaves). One day the 18 month old decided to hit the 18 year old in the face, so she responded with "No sir! Don't be a little butthead!" and he said "You're a butthead!" It is still so hilarious because he doesn't even talk much! Whoops!
My son Jeremy and I were at the local pool. He jumps in then splashes around. Then he walks up to a little boy around 5 and slaps him! I yell and pull him out. I asked him "Jeremy! Why did you do such a horrible thing!?!? He says "mommy I'm sorry,but,his face was so ugly.......I thought if I slapped him his face would turn pretty.
Daughter learned another way to call roosters is cocks... Having 2 roosters in the yard, this was disaster meant to happen... in no time, she is telling all her friends and house visitors... WE HAVE 2 COCKS, WE HAVE 2 COCKS!!!
Yesterday, I was working in the yard when my 6 year old boy was playing with his "imaginary friend". He invited his "friend" to his playground and talked about super heroes. All was normal and very cute until he said, "I am thirsty, are you?". Then he followed with "wanna a beer?"..... I wanted to laugh out loud but I didn't want him to know I was listening to him the whole time. All I can said in my mind was ... "well trained, boy, well trained".
One day when my son was 3 yrs old, his dad was out of town. When I was putting him to bed he asked "where is daddy?" I said "Daddy is is in Miami" My son looked kind of confused with the answer I gave him so I asked him back "So where is your daddy?" and the answer was "Daddy is in your army". He thought I said "daddy is in my army".
It was 1984...................... My son was 7 years old and the schools were going full force instructing them about possible children abductions and how to avoid it. It was a very scary time for them Our town had a Saturday where we took the kids for finger printing just to have it on file. One of the points of instruction they were hammering into the kid's heads was that no adult should ask a kid for directions and it was suggested for them to start yelling and run in the opposite direction into a neighbor's house/yard. One afternoon the kids were playing outside and lo & behold there comes my son, running and yelling, out of breath afraid and hugged me nervously. I asked him what happened. He told me: Mom, an adult asked me for directions! proudly he added.......... and the Domino Pizza sign on top of his car was not going to fool me! We still pick on him about that and he is now 31 years old.
