Answer this question in 50 words or less: What is the funniest thing that has happened in your household this week?

The Mystery of the Missing Potato Masher: featuring one three year old boy, a bucket full of mixed finger paint, potato-masher paint stamps all over the verandah, a painted dog, and the immortal line: "I'm not obnoxious, I'm just a BOY!"  And one potato masher, still missing...

My 4 year old DD was invited to have a photo at Kinder, with a visiting MP.  He tried hard to "sell" the idea by saying she could climb on the monkey bars for the photo and wouldn't that be fun?
She replied with "No. YOU can climb on the monkey bars, I'm going HOME!" and flounced off.

My 4 year old DD and myself went to Kmart to get some undies and socks for my fathers birthday, when we came to pick out the undies DD said VERY load (pointing to the Bonds undies with the pocket bit in the front) thats where poppys tunnel goes!! Well i couldnt stop laughing at that one, never heard her call it that before!!
FWIW DD calls boy bits a tunnel (have no idea where she got that from!)

DH told DS1  (almost 4 years old) that we had run out of bananas.
DS told nana that he couldn't have a banana and when she asked why he said that the bananas had run outside, down the stairs and out the back to talk to the chickens!

DS1 can't pronounce the word 'stick', instead saying 'd*ck'.  At the playground he was playing with a long stick, placed it between his legs and shouted at the top of his voice, "Look I have a long d*ck, come and touch my d*ck and see how long it is".

It was DD1's birthday last Sunday and she got a doll which she calls her 'newborn'. She asked me to 'breastfeed' her baby while she was at school. Then she was wondering if my 'nippies' (her word for nipples) would fit in the babies mouth and insisted I feed the doll so she could check. So there I was 'breastfeeding' her 'baby'! laughing2.gif

My DS aged 7 told me that his mate had told him that babies come from vaginas.  He wanted to know if it was true.  When I told him it was he thought for a moment and then said to his little brother 13mths "HA Ha you came from Mummy's vagina" with lots of laughter.  I gave him a few moments and then told him he did too.  He replied with a quick"Let's change the subject now Mum".

DD (nearly 4) was being a tad cheeky (aka naughty) this afternoon after I picked her up from Kindy. She wanted to have a snack & DH asked her where her manners were, to which she replied "the fairy took them all."

Needless to say both DH & I had a giggle.

DD's incessant chatting was driving DH nuts, so he said "oh would you just please shutup!"
DD replied "I'm NOT the dog".

Can't argue with that!!! original.gif

My DH asked my 2yr old if she did a fart. She replied very seriously 'No Daddy I did 2 farts'  laughing2.gif

I told my son (2.4yo) I was getting out some flash 'cards' to practice counting with him. I turn around and find he went and got some 'cars' and proceeded to use my 'cards' as a race track.

DD1 (5) came home from school singing "Loo, loo skip to the loo".  She thought her teacher had taught her a song about going to the toilet.

DS1 (2.5yo) is a Wiggles addict. Upon insisting he needed to take his Wiggles guitar shopping, he then entertained all customers at Aldi yesterday morning, with his (air) guitar playing routine, which includes singing and dancing (I swear he will be in the entertainment industry)!

After breakfast I told DS, 3, he could go and wake up Daddy with a good morning kiss. After a few minutes I heard a disgruntled yell from DH and hysterical laughter from DS as he ran out saying 'my kisses didn't wake Daddy up but my big fart did!".

After school on Friday we decided that seen as though we are new to our surroundings after moving interstate that we would take a little road trip and find somewhere that perhaps offered a wood fired pizza for dinner, seen as though we were heading country we thought we would take a look around a small town.
We took the kids to the top of a mountain and then wandered around  the town until we found a small pub that offered bistro meals, by this time it was getting close to 7pm so both kids were getting tired, cranky and hungry.
We walked into the pub and there were several hard core locals perched at the bar sipping their beers and musing over the week, they looked as though they were Friday night happy hour regulars.
Mr 5 without missing a beat walked through the doors right behind his father, pulled up a seat at the bar, slumped his head into his hands and loudly announced with a grunt and a sigh "I need a drink'
Needless to say the locals thought it was hilarious and demanded the bar tender 'get the boy a drink'
