Yes, me. Speechless. If you know The Mama in real life, then you know this is very nearly impossible. I typically have 100 words to get out for every 10 that are actually needed. But not today. Oh no, today I had no words.
While The Kidling and I sat in the waiting room at the chiropractor this evening, we reviewed some word endings. This week, her class is spending some time focusing on -ck endings, so we played a bit of a guessing game. I gave her clues, and she replied. It looked something like this:
“What do you put your groceries in?”
“A bag… No… A sack!”
“Where do you put your folders after school?”
“What do you do with a sucker?”
“What was your tricky spelling word last week that ended in -ck?”
Think you know where this is headed? So did I. Until…
“What do you say to someone who is picking her nose?”
Um… Well… I was sort of thinking… Ick. Ick, Kidling.

That wasn’t where I thought that was heading… but I’m glad it ended there and not where my brain went, a certain f work ending in ck. If I saw someone picking their nose in front of me it’s what I’d be thinking.
Yes, I was carefully moving away from the [u] vowel once I realized we could end up in that territory. Apparently the brain exercise made her hungry. 😉
You’d be thinking of firetrucks? 😉
Clearly that’s what she meant. 🙂
The kidling is officially ready to take her place in a French traffic jam, home to the snack.
Ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew.
This is hilarious! I love the funny (and sometimes disgusting) things they say.
By the way did you change the design of your blog? It looks fantastic! (even if it’s not new)
Thanks! I changed it a while ago, but I still like to hear feedback. Thanks!
Did NOT see that coming. And now I’m speechless. Ewwwww…
Yes. Gigantic, high-pitched “ew!”
I was thinking “YUCK”! 🙂
That definitely works. Still shuddering.
I miss moments like this when they knock your socks off and you are left speechless. Loved it.
Très beau blog !
oooooh yea, my 3-year old niece is considering whether or not boogers are tasty or not. It’s only funny after the fact. Not necessarily when she’s considering putting the boog in her mouth.
There’s nothing better than watching a kid eat their boogers. I can’t seem to convince my son that they aren’t put there for his enjoyment. Bleh.
haha i absolutely love your blog! My 3 year old brother is exactly like this!
I’d say yuck actually 🙂
