Family conversations at the home of "Yo Gabba Gabba" *

As the rugrats are served their lunch, consisting of their favourite sandwich and fries …

The girlie: Daddy, how come a boy can eat a Girl’s cheese sandwich?

The boy: It's not a girl's cheese, it's a grilled cheese. And it was my favourite first!


Typical weekend morning:

The boy asks his sister: “Do you know where Dad is?”

The girlie makes her way to a closed door. The washroom door.

She yells through the door: “Hey Daddy, are you having a hard time in there?”

Her Dad: “I’m doing OK”.

Girlie heads back into the family room to report to her brother.

“Daddy’s taking a while, but he says he’s not having a hard time in there!”

The boy: “Oh. Thanks.”


Talking about snacking…

The boy: "Hey Dad, do you like nuts?"

Dad: "They’re OK. Not the biggest fan, though."

The boy: "Well, I like them, especially the horseshoe nuts."

Dad: "What kind of nuts? I don’t think I’ve ever had them before. "

The boy: "You haven’t? Are you sure? Mom loves them too."

Me: "What was that? I do? What’s a horseshoe nut? I’ve never had them…"

The boy (in frustration): "MOM, you know, horseshoes, they’re amazing. I pick them out and we fight over them… "

Me (thinking ... horseshoes, horseshoes … brain cramp…): "Oh, you mean CASHEWS!! "

(* this is a weird show, even perhaps weirder than Teletubbies and I come pretty close to detesting its weirdness; but for some crazy reason it's on whenever I turn on Treehouse TV for the girlie. And I am forbidden to change the station. Maybe I should check the TV guide...)

Oh my gosh you're cracking me up! Too funny--on Sunday my SIL made my dd (same age as lil G) a grilled cheese sandwich and my dd was asking "is my little Girl Cheese sandwich ready?" (SIL told her she was making her a little sandwich [weight watchers bread])

Glad dh had no bathroom troubles! lol

Mmmm horseshoe nuts, my favourite!

We are also a home of Yo Gabba Gabba and to make things even worse In the Night Garden!! Why doesn't that IGgle piggle ever sleep? lol

I especially love "girl's cheese."

Kids are so awesome. Even though they drive me crazy. They really are awesome.

That is funny, though a girl cheese sandwich does not sound all that appetizing.

Sometimes you get the feeling that with kids all you do is try to interpret conversations all day long.

Kami said...
