Some Scofield funnies

Today while waiting to pick up Chloe from school , Sol says to me "Look mom they have trapped a robot inside that fence!" I say, "Hugh" not even looking. Then he says it again, "Look mommy, it has two eyes, a nose and really long arms, can I go climb the fence and let it out?" I say , "What are you talking about??" He says, "LOOK" This time because he is so enmphatic I look directly where he is pointing and see that he is talking about the power meter(i think that's what you might call it) that is inside a chain link fence, probably for safety reasons, directly in front of the school. " "Oh, no you can't go climb the fence and let the robot out , the principal might need that robot for something later" The mind of a soon to be 4 year old boy. So Great!!
Later, after school talking with Emma my 7 year old, I say," What is your favorite season Em?" She thinks long and hard and then says very certainly, " I think Summer when it's warm because that's when ice cream is in high demand" hee hee hee , Keeping a straight face I say, "Oh really why is that?" She says rather condescending "Well, certainly because it is so hot outside" Who has this kid been hanging around , that's what I want to know. Mann, if only I could sound as smart at 30 as she does at 7 sheesh!!!

My most memorable kid comment was when a young Adrian asked the guy with the fuschia Mohawk why he wanted to look like a clown.

georgia that is classic. i have one when em was only about three and we were standing in line at the grocery store and behind us was a seemingly nice couple one white one black . emma at the top of her lungs and as Hayford would say "with a prophetic tone" shouts out " I like black people, they are really really cool" I say
"Ummm.. ok em thanks for sharing". The man smiled and then started to chuckle whew....

bird tells me in a sweet, concerned tone while cuddling on the couch, "dad, i noticed that you're pretty short for a guy. it's okay... i still love you".

Oh man, kids are hilarious! I love the robot one!

Jeni said...

Oh Noel... I remember some of the funny things your kiddos used to say. It was nice to read this again. It makes me thing of the time Sol drew a picture of a pig with a collar and a nametag - and the nametag said "Bacon". They're a funny crew.
