6/23/12 - Kids Will Be Kids

One of the things I heard the father of three boys say last weekend, was "Don't be settin' nothin' on fire y'all.  I mean it."

He was talking about the grill, but if you can make out what's happening in the photos below, you can understand the need for caution.  And yes, that is my living room window.  :(

Boys will be boys, heck, girls too for that matter (recalling some of my childhood antics), but here's hoping this weekend will be a bit more peaceful around here.

Someday I will click my heels together 3 times and wake up in an RV.....
I believe.  I believe.  I believe.



BTW, This reminds me of a time when I was talking to my nephew/BIL on the phone and he called out to K&W, "Don't flush the cat!"  ROFLOL.  What's the funniest thing you have ever said to your kids?

  1. when Daniel turned 13, i said if i could put you back where you came from I would. and it was Daniel that did not flush the cat, he flushed the bottle of aftershave down and when his dad picked up the commode to dump out the bottle, he dropped the commode and we had to buy a new one. i am very familiar with what boys DO and probably said that same sentence about don't set nothing on fire

    1. @ Sandra - a new commode because of flushed aftershave... sorry, but THAT'S funny! ROFLOL. And having taught middle school science, I can think of a lot of places to put 13 year old boys but back in the womb would not be one of them! LOL. Thanks so much for the laughs. :)

  2. When my step-sons were young they used to try and "kill" each other on a semi-regular basis. There were several incidents involving bloodshed, the most prominent being when the youngest one received a bloody nose from being shoved into the corner of the kitchen doorway and then proceeded to run around the house screaming and leaving a trail of blood everywhere. It even got way up on the living room curtains... go figure.

    That gave rise to the "no blood in the house" rule which remained in effect for years. Every time they'd start to wrestle around I'd shout "No blood in the house! Take it outside!" Ahhh I miss those days... what fun!

    1. @ Maria - now that is a house rule I probably will not cross-stitch, but what a riot! LOL. :)

  3. Oh boy, I'm sure there were plenty of good ones but I can't think of one single thing right now other than when one would come crying about what the other one had done to them I would reply with if there's no blood involved I don't want to hear about it.

  4. Can't think of what I told my kids , but plenty of what my parents told me, like don't climb trees and Isis and broke an elbow while on a trip to some state park( I think) I didn't say anything because I knew I would be in trouble? When they found out I really was!!!
