Overheard During Playtime

Here’s just a few snippets of conversation I’ve overheard in the last few weeks between a few of our kids.

Not sure what the preface to this conversation was…

L: Just ask mom. She’s run a few red lights and stop signs and she hasn’t gone to jail.

Z: Yeah. She just hit a house.

{Sad, but very true}.


The girls were playing ‘house’ outside last week…

L: {playing the ‘mom’} You need to go and clean up your room. It’s a mess.

M: Ok, Mom. I’m going to go play in the garden first.

{M runs off to play and returns about 2 minutes later}

M: Mom! Thanks so much for cleaning my room for me!

L: I didn’t clean your room for you. I took all your stuff to Goodwill. I told you that if you didn’t clean it up, I would donate it.

M: {gasp}

Gee…I wonder where they got THAT idea??

Head on over to Mary's at Not Before 7 for some more Tiny Talk Tuesday!!

  1. lol...too funny, what they pick up and retain! Ah the joys of motherhood....enjoy your day!

  2. Oh no, a house? I wonder too what the start of that conversation was. Love the second scenario. I think that conversation has taken place in a few houses!

  3. Loving, loving, LOVING these conversations. I think I remember that second scenario happening a few times myself. :-)

  4. hilarious. very similar conversations had here....much be universal mom speech.

  5. Oh I love it. My mom did that when I was little. I also did that to my son this past summer! If they are playing it maybe it has sunk in to keep their room clean?
    You are blessed to have 4 beautiful children.

  6. Oh, my goodness! I can hardly type from laughing. That conversation between your girls was hilarious!! We would get along so well IRL, you and I. ;-)

    A house? Really? Have you ever blogged that story?

  7. These are cute! It's so funny to hear ourselves come out of our children.
