I walked into Kinda to pick up my daughter today to be greeted with two quotes of the day on the board.

In response to an unreasonable request, a staff member replied "I am not your slave!" The child replied "I know your not, my Mum is!!!!!"
My dad snores because he has prickles on his face.

I knew immediately that they could have only come from my daughter. I had the teachers in hysterics a couple of minutes later, when I got my own back.
I said to her I was happy to see she had learnt something in Kinda today. She looked at me silly and asked "What Mum?" To which my respose was "sarcasm!" They are going to add that to tomorrows quote list.

Does anyone else have a child as "precious" as mine?????
Cheers, Soph.

I'm happiest when I am sewing!

Sounds like mine. But she grew up -- it was tough getting her grown though. Good luck.

I've a got a couple like that, DD age 8 is hell on wheels, she is the one that said... when asked to pick up something (cannot remember what it was now) that it way My job not hers and she was not going to do my work!!:shock: Well she just go a whole bunch of new jobs, :cool: arggghhhh,
My 4 year old is not quite as bad but he does try the ole attitude on for size ever ynow and then, but it is a constant battle with her.
the other two are pretty mellow so far...:bluesmile
I remember reading somewhere that a teacher told her kindergarten parents that she would not believe everything the kids said about them if they would not believe everything they said about her!:bluesmile

Not exactly the same but my 3rd grader who goes to 4th for reading and math was looking rather bored so his teacher (4th) says "Are you bored?" His reply "I might as well just skip right to 5th grade."

I feel your pain. :bg: :bluewink:

My son (18 now) was very good at embarrassing me when he was little. One time that comes to mind was when he was in kindergarten and a police officer came to talk to his school about drugs and alcohol. His teacher got a big kick out of what he said and had to tell me. The officer told them about different kinds of drugs and stated that alcohol and cigarettes are also a type of drug. My son raised his hand and told everybody, "My Granny does drugs." (My MIL used to smoke cigarrettes.)

My two year old Granddaughter says very little that we can understand but she does say "At tude" Attitude is what she's saying but she knows that word well. she also points her finger out when she says it.
I'm regressing back into my youth, I just have to figure out how I'm going to convience my body to come along with me.

Aren't they precious???? At the time so embarrassing but later such good stories.

I imagine all have their moments. Thankfully mine never really had "the" attitude.

Favorite story about ds (now 24). He was in 2nd grade. The teacher was ready to take the kids out for recess. She said, "Does anyone know where the two balls are? I need two balls." My son proudly stood up and announced, "I have two you can borrow." The teacher told me she had to leave the room she was laughing so hard and didn't want the kids to see.

Like I said, aren't they precious???

Oh, and Kath, I was accused by my kids of "drinking and driving". I was having a soda! :bg: But yes, I was technically drinking and driving............:shock:

When my kids were younger & went to a Catholic school they had morning prayer everyday & the kids could ask for special prayers. One day a 2nd grade boy was having a problem with his privates being swollen & asked the 2nd grade class to please pray for his testicles. His teacher and all the parents had to leave the room all the kids just went on like it was no big deal. His Mom got a few phone calls at work to let her know.
I was just glad it wasn't 1 of mine!!
Happiness is having time to sew!!

That's funny! :bg:

When my son was around 10 or 11, he started asking more questions about the birds and the bees. He understood how the egg from the mother had to be fertilized by the father, but I don't think he understood how it got there. We watched a program that explained more about it. He turned and looked at me and his dad and said, "EEW! Did ya'll do THAT?" Before we could answer he added, "But you only had to do it twice, right?" :shock:

I'd still like to think my parents only had to do that twice (twin bros and me). I don't think you ever get used to that idea! :bg:
