My son age 6 threw his ball over the fence towards the front yard. He asked if he could go get it. I said sure and out he went. I was busy doing something and forgot to check the time and the next thing I know my next door neighbor called to tell me that my son was on my van sliding down the front of it like a slide. I am just grateful he did not do something worse.
I have a 5 year old son. At the time this happened he was 2. I had some lollipops in my purse, along with my tampons. He asked, "Mama, can I have a lollipop?" Not even thinking, I say yeah. Well, you guessed it: tampon in the mouth! Then he comes to me with it still in, all swollen, mumbling, Mama, this is a bad lollipop!" I started rolling.
On a 6 hr trip home from D.C. one day, my 5 yr old and her 11 yr old sister were finishing their lunches in the back seat. I turned around when the 11 yr old yelled, "Mom, she's snorting Coke". Her younger sister had one straw up each nostril and had just sucked the Coke through the straw and up her nose. It was the funniest thing I'd ever seen or heard.
I was about 8 years old. I had a sore throat. I told my mom that my throat hurt and felt real "sctatchy" like sandpaper. She took a Qtip and coated it with hand lotion and told me to open my mouth and proceded to coat my throat. I still tast the lotion everytime I think about it.
When I was in college my 4 year old daughter asked if she could please have a baby sister. I told her, "Sure, some day." I was a single parent. She visit all the neighbors on our block, many elderly couples, and told them her mom was going to have a baby! One neighbor complimented me on my fine figure "for a very pregnant young lady" and then spilled the beans...!
After my mom and dad divorced, my dad's brother married my mom. So, my uncle is my dad and my mom is my aunt, my sister is my cousin, and my brother is also my cousin. Furthermore, my cousin is my sister, now, and her brother is my brother instead of my cousin. I think my daughter is my niece and I am my own - well, I'm really not sure. Fortunately, Gramma is still Gramma.
After getting out of jail for selling drugs to undercover cops, my 40 y/o brother-in-law has to get a job as part of his parole(his first job). After he gets his first paycheck I get a phone call asking me who this FICA is and why they were getting so much of his money.
My daughter called me one day from work to settle an argument between her and her husband. The conversation started by her saying, "don't worry mom I know but he doesn't believe me."
My son-in-law gets on the phone and says "Mom, if you put mayonnaise,eggs and pickles in tuna doesn't it counteract mercury poisoning?"
What do you say to that....can't pick family.
While at work one evening in a mental health hospital, I received a call from the Boise PD that I needed to return home regarding a problem with my 8 y.o. daughter. I rushed home to find two BPD cars, lights on, and my house full of men w/ guns. My daughter was enjoying the attention and the babysitter was not. She had called 911 when the sitter spanked her...
