    When my oldest son was about 3 or 4, I found my some of my feminine pads had been opened and left on the bathroom floor. It looked like someone had tried to take a bite out of them. I always kept them under the sink in the bathroom. Apparently he thought that they were rice crispies treats. Why he had to try several I will never understand.

    Um, yeah... so? LOL! My family & DH's are both from the south so we wouldn't know what to do with a "pEn"... LOL!

    Another one from my DD (who would KILL me if she knew I was telling you all her business... LOL!). She was 5 when I had to have a hysterectomy. I was trying to explain it so her but wasn't sure how to do so so I told her I was getting fixed like Amber (our Golden who had been spayed years earlier). She bought that & I didn't give it another thought. We were in the grocery store & the sack boy (remember back in the day when there were sack boys? LOL!) was pushing her & the groceries in the cart out to the car. He asked what we were doing that weekend & Cara Leigh announced "We're getting Mommy fixed!". OMG! He cracked up & I wanted the ground to open up & swallow me!

    When my grandson was about 5 he spent a few days with my daughter and her husband (Unca Bubba) who has a lot of cool tools, then he came to our house and when he walked into my sewing room the first thing he did was run his hand very gently along my sewing machine and asked, "What does this baby do?"

    A few weeks ago we went to dinner with the kids and grands. Our eldest gs is 8. We were talking about the tour de France and how Poppy use to bike. Our daughter suggested Pops should get back into biking. My husband said, " I gave up exercise at 50!" Our 5 year old gs said "Why Poppy" and Patting his Poppy's shoulder, our 8 year old gs said " Oh, I undersand Poppy, you no longer feel like the man you once were." WHAT!? Out of the mouths of babes! We're still laughing about that one.

    When my DS was small he was caught with the tubes that tampons come in. They were in his pocket, he was taking them to school for show and tell.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    Olivia did that recently all the way from the bathroom to our table. Weren't many people there at the time. She used to say after she pooped that Mommy and Daddy would be so proud of her.

    lol! I wonder what he was planning for the "tell" part! I'd love to hear stories from teachers about some of the things kids bring in for show-n-tell. I can remember bringing in a handful of porcupine needles when it was my turn.... I wonder what the teacher thought.

    I'm a nurse. One day I went into my patient's room and she started gushing about my haircut. " I just love your haircut..it's tapered beautifully and trimmed so nice over the ears! I aught to know." By this time I had a smile ear to ear and was getting a big head. "Thank-you" I replied, "Are you a beautician?" "No" she replied, "I'm a dog groomer!" I went out of the room wanting to go "woof-woof."

    I went into an elderly patient's room and he was coughing alot. I commented about all his coughing and he replied " I just thought it was an old fashioned cold but the doctor told me it was prostate problems!"

    Very briefly and long ago, I taught kindergarten in a church school. One morning one little guy brought an extra pencil box, apparently full of treasures to be shared throughout the day. During his reading group, he passed around peanuts in shells. He gave me a key chain from a car dealership, "for your dad." He brought a butter knife in case other kids at lunch needed help cutting their food. Then he pulled out a feminine pad and rubbed it against his face because it was so soft. Whew! This was all before lunch! Just as I was asking myself, "What's next?" the afternoon quieted down, until he put his coat on at the end of the day. He pulled SOMETHING out of his jacket pocket, about the size of a handiwipe and asked, "What's this?" Yes, folks, it was a condom!

    More recently, I told a group of high school students to cross something out. One student asked, "So we should just excrement that out?" We had a funny vocabulary lesson that day!

    I have to tell one about a dear friends teenage son. He had gone in to take a shower and had UNFORTUNATELY taken his contacts out. Later in the afternoon he complained his face was burning and was bright red. My friend asked asked him what he had washed his face with and he replied the usual soap in the shower, but he had used the tube of lotion on his face that he had found under the sink. She burst into a fit of laughter and went into the bathroom and brought him the tube of cream he had put on his face. He now had his contacts in and could see the writing on the tube. . . . . . VAGINAL HORMONE CREAM!!!

    My college roommate is now an elementary school teacher (1st grade, I think) & on one day, kids brought pads, tampons, a box of condoms AND a vibrator for show & tell! Wow!

    OK... one of myself... funny now but not so much at the time. I had a hysterectomy when I was 30 & my MD gave my hormone cream to... insert, shall we say. One day I was in a hurry & not paying much attention. I grabbed the tube, squirted some on my finger, "applied" it & started back into my day. All of a sudden, OWWIE! I couldn't figure out what in the world was the issue. I went back in & looked... I'd applied Ben-Gay!!! And take it from one who knows, the more you rub that stuff, the hotter it gets... yeow! My family thought it was too funny & for years to come, my Mother called me "Hot Pants". Trust me... it was a l-o-n-g day! LOL!

    Years ago, probably about 35, my sister had been babying some bulbs for couple of years trying to get some tulips to grow along the house. Well, one year, it was looking like they were going to make it. Only a few but some were going to make it. One day though, my precious son about five, came in with a handfull of flowers for his Aunt Robin he had picked "just for her." She took one look and started to get teary eyed but she thanked him and made sure he knew how much she appreciated those flowers he had picked just for her. No more bloomed that year, but she never let him know what he had done. Don't think she has ever told him.

    My 8 year old grandangel, Billy, was spending a weekend with me and on Saturday wanted to "do something together". I said what do you want to do? He said we could paint your sewing circle. Huh?.....what sewing circle? ...He pointed to the wall behind me where my embroidery hoop was hanging!

    This same little angel wanted to buy me new safety pins for Christmas because all of mine were bent!

    My cousin received a phone call from a neighbor who told her to look out in the front yard at what her 5-year-old son was doing. She went to the front window and there he was with a whole box of tampons, taking each one out of the packaging and tying them in the branches of a small tree near the sidewalk. She rushed out and grabbed the tampons off the tree and hurried him inside. When asked why he had done it, he said he was playing "army" and those things in the tree were "bombs". Don't kids have great imaginations?!

    It's so funny, as I'm reading these they mostly stem from the joy we've gotten from our kids or the kids in our lives. Too many people don't take joy in the way our kids see the world; I love it. So here is a couple of mine; one from the past that just got brought up lately due to my DGD and the other more recent.
    First; my daughter has two kids; her daughter 17mos has been saying the 4 letter word S_ _ T. She told me, how do I punish her for it when she doesn't know what she says even though she always seems to bring it up at the right time. I told her a story about her older brother at the same age. He kept saying the same word and his father would say, he doesn't know what it means so you can't do anything. Even when his parents came to HI to visit and we went to a really nice resturant and my son dropped his fork and used the word, my husband said he doesn't know what it means. Then the last week we lived in HI we stayed at a cabin on the beach and one night our collie was out on the beach doing his business and my son pointed and said, "look Sammi Jo S_ _T", I looked at my husband and said, now you are going to still tell me he doesn't know what it means. That kind of stopped that one.

    Next is my daughters 6yr old who always makes me laugh; First when my daughter found an old necklace of mine and he thought it was really pretty. I told him it was called tigers eye. He looked at me real serious and said now wait a minute, you are telling me that someone caught a tiger and took its eye out and made that necklace. I could only laugh.
    Just lately while putting my contacts in he said I need contacts GiGi, I said no you don't. He said yes, because his eyes hurt. I told him that meant he needed to take a nap and that people wore contacts because they needed help seeing better. He said then he knew he needed contacts because when he closed his eyes to go to sleep at night he couldn't see a thing. I started laughing so hard and said honey, no on can when they are sleeping. I've had 6yrs of his doing things like this and I hope I have many, many more. I'll never grow tired of it and I hope his sister keeps me laughing as much as he has.

    Enjoying all the cute stories and here is one I was just told by a friend. She was taking her daughter and another 6 yr. old girl home from the pre-kindergarten day at school and listening to them converse in the back of her van. They were both feeling very "big". Josie said to Janelle, "We made smudge ice cream last night and it was really good!" Then she thought a bit and said, "No, I think it is FUDGE ice cream that we made". Janelle looked very serious and said, "Yes, that would be right, and a smudge is one of those things that you clean with!!" (Sponge!) Suzanne got quite the laugh out of that.

    I love all of these! I should have gone to bed an hour ago...just had to read these!
    My dgd at 3 called our kittens 'catties' and even now at 4, when she is thirsty, she says, 'Nana, I'm drinky'
    When my ds was about 5 or 6, he came home from school and went to change his clothes. I had been cleaning out his drawers, taking out things he had outgrown. He came running out saying, 'Momma, I think i've been robbed!' Another dgd about 4 1/2 was telling me about a cricket she heard outside. She told me when she looked at it, it paused. I have really enjoyed my grandchildren.

    i have so many cute kids' stories because i taught and then directed pre-school, and i am blessed with 3 talkative charming off spring. in my 3yr old class i had a train laminated to the floor to help the children line up. one little boy stood at the end of the train and let everyone get in front of him. i asked him what he was doing and he told me! " i want to be the end of the train. i want to be the commode." ( ok, betcha at least smiled ).
    one day during recess i was taking advantage of the quiet and used the commode in our room. suddenly the door flew open and there stood robert,"my mommy has pink panties, too!" he said. since he had come in to use the facilities, i sent him out of the bathroom to fetch something from the classroom and i restored my clothing. in troops robert and he's doing 'the dance.' i headed out of the br only to be called back. he wanted me to stay. i was trying to give him as much privacy as i could in a room slightly larger than a phone booth. when robert spoke and drew my attention back to him. there he stood, facing the bowl, and he demonstrated, "my dad taps it like this. but i like to shake it like this." i was flabberghasted and nearly bursting holding in the laughter. when his mom came in to get him after school. i had to tell her the story. she made me promise NEVER to tell her dh or he would never be able to talk to me if he knew i knew. kids are soooo fun!!
