Wee Wisdom #11

This post was chosen by Hilary over at The Smitten Image as "A Good Laugh" Post of the Week.

Thanks Hilary!






Poignant Pearls of the Week

First up, from Miss America, age 6:

"I want to be a vegetarian when I grow up, so I can help animals."






Next up, my sweet boy Destructo, age 4:

"Nah, you got big knockers?"

I reply, "Uh . . . uh . . . Yes?"

Destructo smiles. "I got big knockers too."

[crickets]

The boy grins and runs off.

What the . . . some man put him up to that. Unless . . .

A short while later, it all becomes clear:



Destructo:  Look, Nah. I got big knockers!

Me:  Ooooooohhhhhhh!
My, you DO have some
big knockers.

Eva Gallant said...

Kristina P. said...

Haha, I love when kids make word mistakes.

Matty said...

Now wait a minute. He needs those binoculars to see big knockers?

Brian Miller said...

LOL! We made caramel apples this weekend...my husband had one with nuts all over it. He told the kids they could eat the apples they'd made, but leave his alone...his was the one with nuts. One of the kids went inside and yelled out, "Don't touch Neil's nuts!"

Gary said...

Hi. I saw your comment on Brian Miller's blog and was taken with your name (Fragrant Liar) so had to drop by to say hello. And I am glad I did. As a kindergarten teacher I love "Wee Wisdom" and try to document these interactions as well. Too funny.

Pat said...

At first I thought the first comment was made by the REAL Miss America and THAT wouldn't have surprised me. Have you heard some of the things that come out of their mouths?

These are adorable! Kids! Gotta love 'em!

I'm sure the line, "Nah, you've got big knockers" was originally in "Little Red Riding Hood", but the censors got a hold of it and red-lined that sucker!

Linda Medrano said...

I love "being a vegetarian" when I grow up! Does Descructo really mean "knockers"??? Hysterically funny kids!

Midlife Jobhunter said...

They are sweet, aren't they.

blueviolet said...

Oh thank heavens that's what he meant!

Irish Gumbo said...

I'm sad. I don't got knockers, of any size. (pout).

Missy said...

Love! LOL Poor Miss America!

Jen Daiker said...

Haha I'm a new follower and this was such a cute day to stop by!! Your little girl is so cute wanting to help animals, and who would have though knockers would have so many meanings!

diane said...

Oh, haha, I love how you totally misunderstood Destructo at first.

mac said...

Of course, small knockers are Ok too... they fit in your pocket nicely ;-)

Fred Miller said...

Sean called them nickels at that age. "Mom, you have big nickels."

Hilary said...

Now that's hilarious! Too funny.

Wow, that was awkward said...

My seven year old was helping me put together a bookshelf. He helped a lot with the screws and screwdriver. He announced, "I love screwing things." I quickly concurred.

Blissed-Out Grandma said...

Pretty durn cute.

injaynesworld said...

I think all little girls want to be vets at some point in their lives. If the kind of vet bills I've paid in my lifetime are any indication -- it's a damn good living.

They're adorable.

Vic said...

Big knockers come in handy sometimes, or so I've been told.

otin said...

Kids are really starting young these days! LOL

Thank you for the birthday wishes!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh my gosh...I love them both! Big knockers and all.
I wanted to be a vegetarian too, back in the day.

Pearl said...

Somebody's feeding Destructo lines!

TechnoBabe said...

Destructo has big green knockers, the best ones!

Miss America is such a cutie.

drollgirl said...

oh i have gotten that BIG KNOCKERS comment from my niece. what, exactly, are you supposed to say when they tell you that?! yeesh!

Anita said...

Cute kids! I couldn't help but notice the contrast between the girl and the boy. :)

Jocelyn said...

Some of my favorite things about childhood are lack of clarity, articulation, and enunciation.

As an adult, I still have one of those.

secret agent woman said...

That's funny. My older son had a video about heavy construction equipment when he was a little boy that he always referred to as "my dirty video."

Madame DeFarge said...

Marvellous. Presumably he wants to see big birds through his big knockers.

meleah rebeccah said...

Aw! That was very funny and quite adorable!

flutter said...

I also have big knockers. What?

ds said...

"Kids say the darndest things!" Too funny. Came from Hilary's with congratulations on your Post of the Week.

Land of shimp said...

Hehehe. There are many hurdles to clear in the language acquisition Olympics, aren't there?

Very funny, and thank you for sharing it. Congratulations on the POTW mention at Hilary's. It's impossible to read this and not chuckle!

Cricket said...

Thanks for the morning laughs. Congratulations on your potw.

Big knockers, eh? Too funny. My own little Destructo has a bit of a speech impediment. He doesn't really do "s-blends" well. One day he came up to me and said:

Dad, what does a (very bad c-word) eat?

Me: WHAT?!?

After a little back-and-forth, I determined he wanted to know what a skunk eats. Oh. Right. Skunks.

I knew that.

Captain Dumbass said...

BAH HAHAHAHAHHA!

Lisa said...

A two-fer! They are a couple of cuties and so smart.
