What do you call them???

This morning when I as reading with the boys William got up for a potty break. Within a few minutes I heard him calling for me from the bathroom. I yelled back and ask him what he needed he said "hurry it's Wesley". I hadn't noticed William's sidekick was missing. He had obviously trailed off behind him to the bathroom. I jumped up and took off to retrieve Wesley from whatever disaster he was creating. (Remember Mr.Destruction truly he is back in full force these days, he teased us into thinking he was turning over a new leaf) Here is what I found and the conversation I had with William....





William is still sitting on the potty, and Wesley is "IN" the cabinet under the sink. As I walk in it startles Wesley and William proceeds to tell me what he's done.


William: Moma LOOK..there he is! (Like I didn't notice)


Me: Wesley, NO!!!!


William: He's been getting out all those "EAR DIGGERS" and pulling the tops off them. I told him NO, but he didn't listen to me.


ME: Wesley that is a NO! NO! Thank you William for helping out. (as I'm popping his hand, YES we spank)



Me: William those aren't called "Ear DIGGERS", their call Q-tips.



William: Are you sure, cause their good for dig'n out ears?!



Me: YES, and you shouldn't use them to dig in your ears.



William: I won't now that Wesley pulled all the soft stuff off the ends.



Me: SIGH****



William really makes me laugh, all the time. As far as using the Q-tips for ear diggers...we don't do that, and never let the kids use them by themselves!

What silly things do you kids call things??????

Kid language is hilarious.
I wish I had written more down about what our kids have called stuff. That's a new one though. EAR DIGGERS. Really, it makes more sense than a Q-Tip doesn't it?

Too cute. I like the "ear diggers". Kylie calls toilet paper, paper toilet. She refuses to put it in the right order. Paper towels are towel napkins. She's such a weirdo, but I love her like crazy!!

I am laughing my head off........ (and so is Mike)! Over the years I have heard some interesting things and wish I too had written these down. Parents beware - as a children's minister I have heard some interesting names and tales from children. They really are so innocent...... but have given me many laughs over the years!

I love this story. (And yes we spank too). Daniel calls the pillow case a pillow sheet. When Amanda was little, maybe five, she called the eye lid an eye shade. Daniel had a pretend 'port pass'. I didn't know what he was talking about until Curtis said passport. LOL.
