A Couple of Kid Tales

I'm once again going to regale everyone with tales of my cute kid.

On the way to school the other day I told my son I was going to get my hair colored while he was in school. He sat there very quiet for a minute and then asked "Red, green or brown?" When I told him brown, he told me I should color it orange--that's his favorite color.

Monday while I was out running an errand I left my husband home alone with Junior. Hubby was getting changed and Junior was on his stomach, in the middle of the living room drawing pictures on a giant pad of paper. Somehow while my husband was upstairs for 5 minutes (so he says) our son managed to take magic markers and draw on himself green raccoon eyes, huge red clown lips, blued the top of his hands and put pink on his palms. I wish hubby had taken a picture, but he was so worried it wouldn't come off, he didn't think of it.

Two days later his palms were still pink, the rest of him washed off that night. I guess I shouldn't complain, it could have been worse, one of the boys in his Tae Kwon Do class is platinum blonde and he colored his hair with red marker and it didn't come out, he had a red patch for a week.

Kids say the darndest things, don't they?
I was complaining about my sore, aching back the other day and my young one says, "Mom, I know why your back "huhts". "Why?", I asked. With a big, mischevious grin he replies, "'Cause I stepped on a crack!"

*sigh* The kid has no conscience! lol

That is so funny about the hair color. Kids are so spontaneous.
You'll be glad if you write everything down - I find myself forgetting things, like how the twins used to call grasshoppers 'Hopper-grass' and 'Splastic Bags'.
They grow up too fast - take advantage of every minute and give him Lots of Hugs and Kisses!

My son just went to a friend's house and put black and red stage makeup ALL OVER HIS FACE. His friend's little brother stripped and put pink stage makeup all over his torso. Nothing on his face at all.
Luckily, it washed off pretty well-my son looked like Darth Mol (sp?), one of the meanies from Star Wars, I think.
