***I didn't know I was embarking on a series when I posted "Sunday Funnies" three weeks ago. But I have noticed how many funny things are said to mommies, and I thought it might be fun to keep it going. So, welcome--a little late--to my accidental series showcasing funny kid stuff.
One morning this past week Biggest was watching me put on makeup.
"Why are you putting on makeup, Mom?"
"Well, sweetie, sometimes girls wear makeup because it helps them feel prettier. Maybe someday, when you grow up, you'll get married to a girl who likes makeup."
"I willlll???" He said, with amazement in his voice and his cute little face. Then, "Yeah...maybe...when I am old enough to drive...I'll drive in my car...and find...a woman."
Oh my dear, dear son. I sincerely hope that when you do find--ahem--a woman, it is not by getting in your car and driving around until you spy a random female. In fact, perhaps both driving and finding a woman are things you will always be too young for. Mommies can dream.
