Outta the Mouths of Babes.6

ANNELIE [laughing hysterically]: Check me out. I look like Justin Bieber.


My kids. They make me snort into my coffee on a regular basis. Here are a handful of clips from around Chez Hopkins.


ANNELIE [passes me a popsicle stick and a ribbon]: Can you tie a bow on the stick?

ME: Sure.

[ties bow, passes stick back to her]

ANNELIE [takes stick, passes it back to me]: Here, Mom, I made you a stick!


ME [in a coughing fit]: Ugh. I feel terrible.

GRACIE: And you look old, too!


ME: Today we're going someplace special!


ME: Um... no.


ME: Um. No. It's the swimming pool.


(yeah, not as cool... sorry, kid)


ANNELIE: This is a game. Guess who I am. I have two eyes, I have one nose, and I look like a hooker.

ME: Uh... what's your definition of hooker?

ANNELIE: Someone who lives on a pirate ship and has a hook.


ANNELIE: Mom! You have to see my really awesome penny! It's the best penny in my whole collection. It's a GIANT [pauses for dramatic effect] SILVER [pauses for dramatic effect] PENNY! Isn't it the best?

ME: That's a quarter.


ANNELIE: For Christmas, I'm going to be Daphne from Scooby-Doo!

ME: People don't usually dress in costume for Christmas.

ANNELIE: Oh.... you mean I have to dress PLAIN?!


ANNELIE: Mom, you always make the best food.

ME: Thanks!

ANNELIE: ...except some of it. Some of it is really gross.


ME [to Annelie]: Sometimes you make me very tired.

ANNELIE [cheerfully]: And sometimes you make ME want to listen to Chuck Berry.


ME: Bedtime, kids. Brush your teeth.

GRACIE: But how can it be bedtime? Nobody gave us dinner!

ME: Um.... Daddy didn't give you anything?

GRACIE: He gave us pancakes (crepes) with lemon and sugar.

ANNELIE: And you gave us ice cream and pie.

ME: O_o Oh. Okay. I'll make dinner.


I'm sure my pal Alyssa is rolling her eyes at the last one. But honestly, who needs dinner when you can have two desserts??

Yeah, we've been known to take everyone out to IHOP for dinner, so....With lemon and sugar though? EW! Hooker...that's priceless. And who says you can't dress up for Christmas. Amelia would fight over the opportunity to be Daphne. She LOVES Daphne. And I always get typecast as Velma. I resent that. Oh and what did Chuck Berry ever do to her?

Unknown said...

haha, Alyssa, they are called pancakes (by the resident Brit0 but they're more like crepes. Tastes VERY good with lemon and sugar!

Alyssa S. said...

I guess if I ever come up to visit I'll have to make Wilvis serve me some...if someone remembers to feed me.

Denise Felton said...

I am wiggling with happiness that Annelie knows who Chuck Berry is! OMG, I love your kids' brains.

Winklepots said...

The hooker one gets me everytime. :o)

Diane Duda said...

I made you a stick. :)

Meeling said...

Love the stick, and the hooker one...LOL, I almost fell off my chair!!!

Unknown said...

HAHAHA! I especially love the "hooker" one. ;-)

Laura Pauling said...

Your kids make me laugh on a regular basis too!

Natalie C Parker said...

I should know better than to read your posts in public places. ADORABLE.

Unknown said...

Your kids are way to funny. This post totally made me laugh.
